WTF? EAT YOUR BANANAS GREEN...AND WITH THE PEEL ON???

BLEH

You've been eating bananas wrong your entire life . . . we found TWO separate stories today on what you SHOULD be doing when you eat bananas. And they're both disgusting.

The first is: You should eat bananas when they're GREEN . . . BEFORE they're ripe.

Rodney Bilton is a biochemist in England. He says green bananas are much higher in resistant starch . . . which is the best kind of fiber you can eat. It's a carb, but it doesn't make your blood sugar rise, and it can actually raise your metabolism.

By the time bananas get ripe, a lot of that resistant starch is gone . . . so the greener it is, the better it is for you.

The second piece of advice on eating bananas is: You should be eating the PEEL.

Kimberly Snyder is a nutritionist and author. Quote, "The concentration of fiber in the peel [is] up to three to four times higher [than] the fruit inside. It also contains a bevy of anti-aging antioxidants and vitamins."

So, if you eat the peel, it's good for your overall health, your skin, and lowering your cholesterol.
