I don’t really understand why I buy bananas! Well it’s not me that actually buys them. “They’re very good for you!” says Other Half, sliding another bunch into the shopping trolley. “So why don’t you eat them?” In truth, we do actually eat them but usually only one as they are quite filling. I know they are full of natural goodness, a respectable source of vitamin C, packed with magnesium and potassium plus a natural benefit to digestion, gastrointestinal issues along with being good for your heart and blood pressure. Being low in fats they are also an aid to lowering cholesterol and in a nutshell, one of the most popular health foods available on earth. Did I mention that they also contain high levels of protein and dietary fibre? Why then, do most weeks, we just pop them in the fruit bowl and watch them slowly turn spotty then brown?
