    APRIL TOPIC~Bananas

    Bananas are handy to have around. They come in their own protective wrap that tells you when they are ripe to eat. They can be included in dishes that go from savory to sweet, baked into breads or muffins as well as being inexpensive, which is a huge bonus.

    Do you get leg cramps when your sleeping at night?
    Eat a banana a day~they keep the leg cramps away.
    Bananas are loaded with potassium. Potassium plays an important role decreasing the risk of high blood pressure and stroke, it increases strength and helps reduce stress.

    Banana plants are the largest plants on earth without a woody stem. They are actually giant herbs of the same family as lilies, orchids and palms.
    The banana plant reaches its full height of 15 to 30 feet in about one year. The trunk of a banana plant is made of sheaths of overlapping leaves, tightly wrapped around each other like celery stalks.
    Each banana plant bears only one stem of fruit. To produce a new stem, only two shoots - known as the daughter and the granddaughter - are allowed to grow and be cultivated from the main plant.

    We love bananas in this house!! Perfect diet food! My pup has thyroid disease and takes meds. We had to reduce her cal. intake so drastically to get the weight off of her. Soooo....we supplemented her low cal diet with slice banana! It takes the edge off and is healthy. A healthy low fat snack and she is doing great!!!
    Doggie treats are very fattening. I was over treating her...easy to do. Now I know better!!! So try sliced banana as a doggie treat!!!
