Mellow Yellow Monday

Friends finally, time to join Mellow Yellow Monday. Here’s my early entry. Actually this picture is from a friend of mine who is not a blogger. She went home to her province last month ago, she took this very interesting photo of a banana.

This is usually what people do , hanging their banana’s inside their home and let it ripe. Then as you can see some are ripe already and some are still green. This type of banana is very good for your health. This is really fresh from the banana farm.


As I do research online, bananas contain three natural sugars - sucrose, fructose and glucose combined with fiber.

A banana gives an instant, sustained and substantial boost of energy. Research has proven that just two bananas provide enough energy for a strenuous 90-minute workout. No wonder the banana is the number one fruit with the world's leading athletes. But energy isn't the only way a banana can help us keep fit. It can also help overcome or prevent a substantial number of illnesses and conditions, making it a must to add to our daily diet.

According to a recent survey undertaken by MIND amongst people suffering from depression, many felt much better after eating a banana. This is because bananas contain tryptophan, a type of protein that the body converts into serotonin, known to make you relax, improve your mood and generally make you feel happier.

Enjoy eating banana’s everyday.

You remind me my friend when I was a kid until teenager. We have few banana plants and when its time to harvest it we immediately hang the banana and as what you said let it ripen and eat it one by one. It's good to reminisce the past. Nakakamiss, di ba? Well, take care my friend and enjoy your day.
