Everything you needed to know about ... Bananas - 12.9.19.jpg

It’s common knowledge that bananas are high in potassium and a good source of fibre, but it doesn’t stop there, bananas are seriously good for us in more ways than we know! A medium sized banana contains just over 30% of your recommended daily intake of Vitamin B6, 9% of your recommended daily intake of potassium, over 3 grams of fibre and many other beneficial micronutrients and antioxidants.

A medium sized banana roughly contains 430 kilojoules of energy, and coupled with its fibre content, makes it a healthy snack that will keep you going throughout the day. Bananas are also known to aid in relieving exercise related muscle cramps and provide a great source of slow releasing fuel for endurance exercises.

Basically what we are trying to say is you should be eating bananas everyday; either mix them into your breakfast or have them as a snack through the day, its super simple! You can find banana filled recipes on our website.
