Banana is a wholesome food in more ways than one.
A wholesome, vibrant and delicious breakfast is something we all wish for every morning. But are we ever able to do that every day? We often skip our breakfast or prepare a quick light meal to save time — which is mostly not healthy. As the first meal of the day, breakfast ideally should be brimming with nutrients to fuel our body. And banana seems to fit the bill. Banana is a nutrient-dense fruit — rich in calcium, folate, niacin, riboflavin, B6 and magnesium. It is brimming with fibre, which may help keep us full for long, aid digestion, promote weight loss and boost our heart health. A rich source of iron, bananas also help fight anaemia. It is replete with potassium, which is known to negate the ill-effects of sodium and also keeps blood pressure stable.
Besides all that, bananas are fairly versatile. Use them in salads, smoothie and even curries, and you will always love it. And breakfasts are simply the best meal to put all those bananas to use. So if you love bananas, or have too much of them at home (and are pressed for time in the morning), we’ve got 5 quick banana recipes you can make for a delicious morning meal!
