16 May Power Food Recipe: Easy Peanut Butter Chocolate Banana Soft Serve Ice Cream
The Power Food this week is Banana! Bananas are seriously healthy for your muscles. In case you are not aware, bananas are very rich in a mineral called potassium. It is an electrolyte that our body requires to keep electrical impulses flowing through the body. Without electrical impulses, our muscles will not operate. A row of bananas is sometimes called a ‘hand’, while a single banana is called a ‘finger’. A hand is pretty heavy. It can weigh up to 100 pounds and one hand can actually have 400 fingers!
Health Benefits of Bananas
Nutritionally, bananas are wonderful – a 4 oz. medium banana has just 100 calories, but 3 grams of fiber, 20% of your daily value of magnesium, and 10% of your daily potassium needs. It is a good source of vitamin C as well! A banana after a workout, along with plenty of water, can help replenish you more effectively and cheaply than any energy drink.
