ABC Series:A for Apple entries

Here is an award from me to all of you who contributed to the event. 

Coming to the theme for October, it is the most commonly used fruit all over the world - BANANA.

Benefits of Banana
  • Bananas are one of our best sources of potassium, an essential mineral for maintaining normal blood pressure and heart function.
  •  Bananas are good for your kidneys and bones: Benefits to the kidneys and the bones are again due to the high potassium content of bananas. A normal intake of potassium suppresses calcium excretion in the urine and minimizes the risk of kidney stones. 
  •  Bananas are  recognized for their antacid effects that protect against stomach ulcers and ulcer damage. 
  •  In addition, bananas contain pectin, a soluble fiber that can help normalize movement through the digestive tract and ease constipation.  

Rules for the event:
1. Send any recipe that has Banana as one of the ingredient. Banana can be the main ingredient or used in combination with any other ingredients. Raw or ripe bananas can be used.
