One Banana, Two Banana, Three Banana Four!

Did you know that bananas help to prevent kidney cancer?

It is believed by many experts that bananas were the first fruit cultivated by humans.

Alexander the Great first came across bananas in India in 327 B.C.

The song "Yes, We Have No Bananas" was released in 1923 and became a huge hit. It refers to the banana shortage at the time.

In 2001, Britain recorded 300 incidents of injuries related to bananas. The majority of these involved people slipping on banana peels.

If you buy a bunch of bananas you are almost guaranteed to have two become over ripe and then you have to make banana bread.

I love bananas and I usually eat one a day so that I won't have leg and toe cramps. Yep, all that potassium in bananas helps prevent those cramps. For the past 7 weeks I have been dieting and so am not eating as many bananas which means I've been making a lot of banana bread. Who eats the bread, KEN! I tried this new recipe the other day and it was very tasty/yummy. The recipe for Coconut Banana Bread with Lime Glaze can be found at Our Best Bites HERE

When I make it again,(and I will) I will use only 3/4 Cup of sugar as it was too sweet. The bread was yummier after it had aged for a couple of days.
