Going Bananas

Just want to share with readers that I have developed an affinity with bananas: they taste great,have lots of nutritional values, are 'good mood' foods, and have lots of health benefits.

Just try to google "The health benefits of Bananas" and one would be amazed at the many intrinsic benefits of this marvellous fruit!

Fruits have existed since time immemorial but man is not really eating much of them despites the health authorities' recommendation to consume 2 servings of fruits and 2 servings of vegetables everyday. What man consume in excess are meat and more meat so much more that they bring to themselves a host of health problems and destruction of the planet via deforestation for more meat and cultivation

Consumption of fruits and vegetables each 2 servings everyday takes discipline, especially so with the hectic worklives of Singaporeans.

Apples, oranges and bananas are my favorites. Personally, I do not like dried fruits such as longans, rambutans, lychees as they are considered heaty but nevertheless they are nutritional fruits too.

It does not help that prices of fruits sold in food centres are not cheap! To encourage a more healthy living, the relevant authorities shall price fruits at cheaper prices to encourage more working Singaporeans who to consume them during their lunch hours.

Anyway with fruits cut, the vitamins present in them will disappear over time, thus I prefer to consume my fruits fresh from home rather than buying cut fruits from the shops.
