Ingredient of the Month: Bananas!

You hear it all the time: “Bananas are great for you!” But, why? Typically, people say they’re a great source of potassium, but it’s more than just that! This staple fruit can help manage digestion and even make you a happier person. How? Keep reading to find out:

They have energy-boosting properties.

This powerful food contains three sugars: sucrose, fructose, and glucose. They work together to provide a natural source of energy in order to get you through your inbox, workout, or even to enjoy just because! Due to their energizing capability, we created an Overnight Oats Bar packed with the perfect amount to keep you alert and focused.

They’re a great source of potassium.

Did you know that potassium plays a big role in your heart health? It helps lower blood pressure by flushing excess sodium from your body and balancing your internal systems. Additionally, potassium does a great job at aiding in muscle function (try having a Banana Nut Overnight Oats Bar before or after your next workout!).

They’re crucial for your digestive health.

Bananas have a considerable amount of prebiotics and fiber, which are great for overall digestion. One medium banana contains about 10-12% of your daily fiber needs. Next time your gut needs a little extra TLC, reach for our Banana Nut bar!

They can boost memory and mood.

Tryptophan is an amino acid that may help preserve memory! Bananas contain this powerful compound, and it’s known to not only help your memory, but also boost the ability to learn, and improve your overall mood. Trying to pick up a new hobby or skill? Bananas are the fuel you need to get started!

If you’re like us and feeling hungry now, head on over to the pantry and grab one of our Banana Nut Overnight Oats Bars (you won’t be disappointed). Love them so much you just need to tell somebody?
