You might wan to omit bananas from your diet due to the high number of carbohydrates or sugars in the banana.Yellow or brown” bananas contains more sugar than green ones which have more fiber. It’s not that banana’s are ‘bad’ for you, it’s just that they’re not good for losing weight as they do contain a lot of simple sugars. Berries are better. If you are strictly monitoring sugar & caloric intake the biggest thing is glycemic spike with a banana. If you can't give them up, eat in moderation
Bananas Staying on the fruity theme, bananas have a couple of tricks up their sleeve as well. As well as making an excellent food for babies, peeled bananas can be wrapped in cling-film, frozen, then eaten a bit like ice cream!
On a non-edible note - you can also use banana skin to give brown leather footwear an extra shine. Just rub the inside of the banana skin over the shoe, then polish as usual (removing any rogue fruity bits!).
I am looking for ideas to make my bananas last longer with out turning brown so quickly..... Someone at work told me to separate all of them from the stems (stalk) will lengthen the time before they start turning brown with spots!! Any ideas????
