I always have a ready supply of bananas at home. My husband eats them. My son too. But I avoid fresh bananas at all costs. I’ll eat them cooked though. Like banana fritters. Those I love! So I figured out that I probably can turn the bananas at home into another snack or something. Why not bake them and have another type of food readily available for breakfast? I mean, bananas are supposedly healthy and they’re said to reduce menstrual cramps because they’re a good source of iron, magnesium and potassium. Not only that, bananas are great skin food too.
This was supposed to be my lunchbox but ended up, I’m using it for breakfast instead. Actually, breakfast has become my biggest meal of the day and so I try to eat something more substantial. Instead of the usual bread, I’ve been eating sweet potatoes. Apparently, sweet potatoes have lower carb content compared to the regular potatoes, which means, their glycemic load is lower. In addition, I read that they come with high levels of vitamins A,C, E, fiber and beta-carotene. Hence, sweet potatoes are great to combat free radicals which causes skin aging. Not only that, they’ve great anti-inflammatory nutrients and are good to restore radiance to our skin.
Look what’s for my breakfast recently—snacks from iHerb! Yeah, I realized that iHerb stocks some great snacks, many of which are not available here or are a lot cheaper compared to what we get off the shelves. So I’ve been ordering a few items to try and found these that make for a quick, nutritious and great tasting breakfast—oatmeal and wild berry mix. And all I need is a bowl and hot water and my breakfast is ready in an instant!
