Banana Snacks

My post-workout protein snack today was my favorite: sliced banana with peanut butter, honey, sunflower seeds, bee pollen and local honey.

(Tip for Allergies: I’m having a horrible time with allergies this year from the pollen and a friend suggested that I have a spoonful a day of local honey; it acts kind of like a flu shot, giving you immunity to the pollen because its the same type of pollen that the bees are getting, I already feel so much better!)

Below is the same snack but I cut it differently and added almonds.

Did you know that according to the latest Japanese Scientific Research, a full ripe banana with DARK patches on the yellow skin produces a substance called TNF (Tumor Necrosis Factor), which has the ability to combat abnormal cells. The more darker patches it has, the HIGHER its immunity enhancement quality; so, the riper the banana, the better the anti-cancer quality. A yellow skin banana with dark spots on it is 8x more effective in enhancing the property of white blood cells than a greener skin version.

Eating just 1 a day increases immunity.

Have a relaxing Sunday & enjoy a banana! :)
