First Woman: I went to my doctor the other day and she told me that I needed to lose weight and balance my blood sugar. If I don’t get it together, she’s going to put me on medication.
Second Woman: Oh! Well whatever you do, don’t eat bananas. They’re high in sugar and will make you fat.
Unfortunately this isn’t the first time that I’ve heard this attack on bananas. Somehow, bananas have become the root cause for our blood sugar being out of balance (leading to diabetes), our weight, and our lack of energy.
Most afternoons, when I need a snack, I make my favorite PB&V(Vital Scoop) Shake. 12 ounces coconut water, 2 tablespoons peanut butter, 1 scoop Vital Scoop, and 1 banana. The banana not only adds creaminess to my shake…
- Bananas have potassium which helps balance blood pressure,
- Bananas provide fiber which is great for our digestion,
- Bananas increase the feeling of fullness which keeps me going through the rest of my afternoon until dinner.
- Bananas alongside Vital Scoop and peanut butter contribute to a balanced meal that moderates insulin levels and ultimately fat.
Get Real! Don’t blame the poor little banana. Our super busy lives often lead to poor choices and little access to good healthy foods. Vital Scoop, alongside most foods, will leave you feeling healthier and more confident about your food choices.
