I've been in banana limbo lately. Is eating a banana healthy or not?
How do we get past all these mixed messages about bananas? I feel like there's a whole lot of banana monkey business going on! At times, do you feel like a monkey swinging from one “Healthy Eating” headline to another?
I try to be informed with healthy food choices, but I must admit the almighty banana has probably the most mixed messages of all the fruits. Eat bananas. Don't eat bananas. Bananas make you fat. Bananas make you skinny. Bananas have too much sugar. Bananas have good natural sugar. Bananas make your stomach flat. Bananas make you bloated. Bananas can be shoved into a tail pipe. Oh, oops, that's for a different story.
No wonder we've all gone a little nuts over bananas; don't even get me started on nuts!
Anyway, here's what I have gathered as somewhat the skinny on "banana logic." My source is Chris Freytag who I think makes the most sense. I may be a little biased as she's a Minnesota girl!
