Banana + Raw Organic Honey + Peanut Butter + Carob Functional Snack

18 Dec BananaSnack

When hunger strikes in the middle of the day, and I crave something sweet, fulfilling, and healthy banana is always my go to fruit.

Bananas are soooo good because:

* They have high levels of thryptophan, which is converted into serotonin – the happy +good mood neurotransmitter

* They are packed with potassium, which helps prevent muscle cramps as well as nighttime leg cramps

* Regulate blood sugar

* Have high levels of Vitamin B-6, therefore helps reduce swelling, help the production of white blood cells, and strengthen the nervous system

* Have iron, which helps prevent and combat anemia, and strengthen your blood

* They have magnesium, which helps keep blood pressure normal, keep your bones strong and a steady heart rhythm

* Rich in pectin, which is an enzyme that aids digestion. They are a natural anti acid and act as prebiotic.

Now, I combine this amazing fruit with Peanuts, which are a good source of Vitamin E, niacin, folate, protein and manganese.

Then, I add Organic Raw Honey which contains flavonoids, and is anti-fungal, and anti-bacterial

And Carob, that is high in fiber, and has calcium.

Bee pollen, Amaranth and Maca Powder will each get their own post because they deserve it.

 

Method

1. Slice a banana

2. Mix 2 tbsp of Natural Organic Crunchy Peanut Butter with 2 tsp Carob Powder, 1 tbsp Carob Chips, 1 tbsp Organic Raw Honey, 1 pinch Cinnamon

3. On a plate sprinkle 1 teaspoon of Maca powder, and 1 tsp Bee Pollen.

4. Sprinkle 2 tsp Amaranth on top of the sliced bananas.

5. Decorate the plate with some extra Carob Chips.

 

Bom Apetite!
