The Brown Bag Secret Ingredient REVEAL!


This week’s secret ingredient is the almighty BANANA.  Never underestimate the power and versatility of America’s number one fruit.  Have it for breakfast, lunch, dinner, as a snack, or dessert.  Not only are bananas nutritious and awesomely sweet, they’re very inexpensive. Known mostly for its high levels of potassium, which helps to maintain normal blood pressure and keeps your “ticker” functioning properly, bananas also provide a healthy dose of Vitamin C and dietary fiber.  Bananas are also used as a natural antacid to prevent stomach ulcers and protect against ulcer damage.  Here’s one more thing you should know about bananas.  They can help build stronger bones due to a compound known as a prebiotic (fructooligosaccharide), which works with probiotic or the friendly bacteria in your colon.

Below are a few ways I like to enjoy these beauties!
