If you’re feeling a bit sluggish or afflicted in your digestion, bananas are a must-have ingredient to get things soothing and moving! Bananas are excellent for stomach and intestinal inflammations such as colitis and Crohn's disease, and are known to help reduce diarrhoea. A bout of diarrhoea can also quickly deplete your body of important electrolytes, and bananas are a fantastic way to replenish these stores due to their high potassium content; a vital electrolyte that helps to regulate heart function and fluid balance. To get things going, bananas contain pectin, a soluble fiber that helps to normalise movement through the digestive tract and eases constipation. They also provide a good source of pre-biotics in the form of fructooligosaccharides, which nourish and feed friendly bacteria in the colon; keeping your intestinal flora, and your immune system strong.
Whether you're eating them straight from the fruit bowl, in a smoothie or on porridge. Bananas are perfectly packaged portions of nourishment! A great way to use up overripe bananas is to make cakes and baked goods with them. Because of their natural sweetness, you can create lovely baked goodies like banana bread minus excessive amounts of added sweeteners. While the conventional, store-bought stuff is known for its sky-rocketing refined sugar and white wheat flour content, that shouldn't stop us from enjoying its sweet comfort. We've done some shapeshifting with the standard sugary recipe, and this is hands down the best banana bread you’ll make. It’s lusciously moist, fresh and sweet, and will keep like that for days.
This beautiful banana bread, with hints of walnut nutmeg and cinnamon, will bring a skip into your step and a smile to your dial. It's a fabulous way to enjoy the bountiful health benefits that bananas have to offer, without the risk of and mushy messes.
