What Are Bananas?

Bananas are very nutritious, they are an excellent source of carbohydrates, protein, and fiber. They are also rich in potassium, vitamin B6, folate, manganese, copper, calcium, and magnesium. They are also a good source of dietary fiber. In fact, a single medium sized banana has about 15 grams of dietary fiber. This makes them an excellent fruit to include in your diet.

Bananas are also a good source of vitamin A, vitamin C, and iron. They contain small amounts of vitamin E and vitamin B1. Bananas are also high in calories.

A single medium sized banana has about 95 calories. This is about the same as a cup of coffee or a glass of orange juice. However, it is important to remember that the calories are from sugar and not fat. You should only eat one banana if you want to get the maximum amount of nutritional value from it. If you eat more than one, you will get too much sugar.

If you want to add bananas to your diet, you can eat them raw, or make some of your favorite recipes with them. Here are some recipes for using bananas.
