I’ve been discovering how interesting, nutritious, and fantastically nutritious is the banana. Not just any fruit has all these benefits beside its smart wrapping. 😉

Thanks the web for the pic!

Oh gosh, I just *hate* banana ! 😛
The smell, the taste, everything around it ! :-°

Jo Ann, that’s because you don’t know the banana “prata” from Brazil……. don’t you agree, N?

Yes Lucia, I think that Jo Ann hasn’t tried the right kind of banana! 😛

I suppose, even in Brazil you can find bad ones… (‘cause I know that Jo Ann has been there…)

I love bananas! I eat at least one every day…and no i’am not a monkey ;-0

Haha, Lucia, maybe.

But my family eat bananas pra dedéu and I still can’t ! Not even plantains, in any kind or shape or… I get sick around bananas, seriously. 🙂

Snif, avant je mangeais une banane presque tous les jours, mais maintenant, j’essaye de manger “local” et les bananes ça vient vraiment de loin alors je n’en mange plus, en tous les cas l’été, quand il y a des tonnes d’autres fruits… snif…

>E: Long live the monkeys! 😆

>Jo Ann: What?!? You really haven’t tried the banana prata? 😉

>Dr.Caso: Je crois que tu devrais faire une exception. Vraiment. Ou planter un bananier sur ton balcon. hi hi. (mais c’est pas très faisable, l’herbe est assez bordélique)
