bananas

i've always thought that the banana is the perfect food. it comes in its own biodegradeable wrapper making it eco-friendly. you can carry it most anywhere and there's never a need to refrigerate. packed with vitamins and nutrients, they make a wonderfully quick snack. i rarely leave the grocery without a bunch of mostly green bananas, preferring them when they're almost hard. i throw one in my work bag every morning to eat on my way to a meeting or at my desk. when i visit our photographer to art direct a baby photoshoot they call me "banana girl" as i always have my on-to-go snack. yellow is one of my fave colors (second to orange of course!!) so that makes the banana even more perfect. so if you hear me singing that "yes, we have no bananas, we have no bananas today" song you'll surely understand that it's due to my long-running love affair with the world's perfect food!

have a great weekend, everyone!!

That's funny Julie. I've often thougt the very same thing as I sit here eating a perfectly ripe banana this morning.

All very good thoughts about the banana! I like them under-ripe, too...before any brown speckles!

I could go for a banana milkshake!

In the U.S., banana's are the number 1 fruit, apples are number two. I'm not sure if it is the taste so much as the convenience of eating them....they're not messy, no prepartion needed, and they both taste good with carmel on them!

Bananas are great! Especially with chocolate...what isn't better with chocolate?

oh yes, i agree! i especially love eating them before a workout or run...they give such a nice sin-free boost! i don't like them hard though...they leave a funny sappy taste in my mouth.
