Thanks to their low sodium and high potassium content, bananas are particularly good for people with high blood pressure. Bananas also contain tryptophan, which the body converts into serotonin, a brain chemical that helps you relax, improves your mood, and makes you fall asleep more easily. That’s why some doctors suggest eating a banana an hour before sleep.
At roughly 105 calories, a medium banana is the perfect size for a mid-morning or mid-afternoon snack. Bananas also provide an abundance of natural sugars, making them a great source of easily digested and readily available fuel.
- Bananas are always in season; they’re harvested every day of the year.
- Buy them slightly green. They will ripen just fine on your counter. Never refrigerate green bananas; the cold ends the ripening process.
- If the banana has a gray tint, it could mean it was frozen while in transit. Definitely pass.
- Skip the dried banana chips; they’ve actually been fried. Just three ounces contains over 400 calories.
Some people like to travel by train because it combines the slowness of a car with the cramped public exposure of an airplane.
