I had no idea what the heck I was gonna do for this and all of a sudden it hit me while I was making breakfast.
This is my challenge!
I have a love/hate relationship with bananas. Sometimes I love them and can eat them for a while and then there are times that it hits me all of a sudden and I can't eat them with out gagging on the texture and flavor. This then usually lasts a few months. I have no idea why this happens.
I don't want to eat the same fruit every day. I can only handle so many apples, grapes and strawberries. I sometimes get pineapple and watermelon I get in season. A lot of other berries are just so darn expensive. I can't eat honeydew or cantaloupe because it makes my mouth feel fuzzy.
So I buy bananas for the Hubby and they stare at me every day. Why can't I get over this? I decided to try them in stuff. I tried peanut butter and banana sandwiches. They were good, but not a favorite. I tried putting them in smoothies, but they always ended up overpowering everything else. I kinda just made up my own recipes Then I found 100 healthy snack ideas link on someones blog (sorry I can't remember who) In those snack ideas is a smoothie. It has banana and spinach which is a bonus because it is so good for you! I tried it this morning and Oh my gosh it is so good! And I can hardly taste the banana! I guess this is the best way for me to eat them. Next I am going to try a green smoothie recipe that I found on The Cornfed Feminist's blog. This one had banana and spinach in it too.
Hopefully I will find other ways of getting them into my diet. Anyone have any ideas?
