Now, that I have hopefully shown you the benefits of ripe bananas and you are on board. I will give you a bit of advice. When you visit your local grocer ask for the bananas that are overly ripe. They may be on sale or hiding somewhere. I went to Whole Foods and saw cases of them under the produce bins. The kids and I love to peel them, break them into little 1 inch pieces and freeze them for banana ice cream and today’s recipe, Green Smoothie Bowls. Our breakfasts are almost always oatmeal or smoothie bowls because they are both filled with fiber and help your body maintain a health blood sugar level until lunch time, hence no crashes (or meltdowns).
Again, this week I will post recipes that will get you and your family on your way to incorporating a plant-based diet. Next week, on Monday you will have a full day of recipes and a shopping list.
What does this do for me? The most asked question when I make someone a smoothie bowl and pack it with fruits and veggies. You can always be sure in your answer when you say, these smoothie bowls are packed with calcium, vitamin C and E, protein, essential fats, fiber and antioxidants. Although, once they taste them it wont even matter…its that delicious shopping list to start your Meatless Monday! I know you can do it!
