Today’s Nutrition tip is powerful one says #NutritionCoachRyan
We all eat it, it’s available year round and all elite performance athletes swear by it. Its Long, firm, sweet when ripe and you got to undress it. It’s one fruit that does not require any washing and needs no refrigeration.
So you have the big guys and the small guys. The big guys are needed post your fitness hour. They pack a huge punch. The smaller elaki bananas are convenient and tasty.
Banana has everything in it, except fat and is high in carbs, which is why we nutritionist say go easy on bananas.
But I do throw that weight gain logic out the window if you have constipation; it has the perfect amount of FIBER to make you do go.
Spread the banana love through the day, a banana or two during the day not with a meal works best for a better run to the lavatory and it is a pacifying fruit.
It seems banana has serotonin that helps induce sleep. So if you suffer with insomnia like I do, how about an hour before you sleep, just have an elaki banana. You can thank me later. But do pace around for 10 minutes after eating that banana to digest it before you sleep.
I love cooking my bananas, a little honey, a teaspoon of ghee (yeah you heard me right only a tiny itsy-bitsy dollop of Ghee) shallow fry for 10 minutes. It makes for a perfect muscle soreness busting meal.
If you eat a banana a day, you will be a happy monkey like me 🙂

Have seen the tennis pro’s in a long match, Bananas have a coveted place in every champions bag. I am sure they have a special banana carrier in their sports bag so the bananas don’t go squashed 😉
If you have a skew to the sweeter side try making chapatties or dosa or pancakes using banana flour, easily available at any gourmet supermarket.
To eat healthier all you have to do, is start with a plan. You got to buy food with a plan, Monday to Sunday. I say you need Bananas three times a week if you’re pushing your limits on the fitness hour.
Good nutrition is not a one stop bite, it’s a choice, it’s a lifestyle
Feed your body and move those feet and like Gwen Stefani said, Go Bananas, B A N A N A S.
