Yes, we went B-A-N-A-N-A-S in Dance Conditioning today
while eating this delicious fruit.... and learning its importance in our diets.  

  • FULL of potassium, which helps maintain normal blood pressure and heart function, while being low in sodium 
    • reduces muscle cramps after physical activity! 
  • high in fiber to keep us heart healthy --- and specifically pectin, a soluble fiber, help regulate the digestive tract
  • replenishes electrolytes lost when sweating 
  • contains about 15% of your daily Vitamin C intake 
  • full of good carbs to give an energy boost after a workout 
  • full of nutrients like iron, magnesium, calcium, vitamin A, vitamin E, folate, carotene and choline
So grab a banana, then toss the peel outside because it's BIODEGRADABLE and good for the environment... thanks Dierdre, for this Earth friendly recommendation!
