I love banana and know it is a good choice of nutrients, including potassium. In one book the author spoke of pureeing banana and freezing it. I know how high the carb content is in a banana. Anyone have any thoughts on how to incoorate it on paleo?
If you're wondering about when to eat it or how to eat it without gaining weight / how to optimize the carbs and sugar in bananas, I would treat it like a dessert and eat it like any other food that has a lot of glucose and fructose - after a hard workout.
That being said, I love pan frying my bananas in butter and sprinkled with cinnamon, cocoa powder and coconut flakes for an occasional treat!
The way I incorporate bananas into my diet is to eat them after a workout. I usually slice one up and add some yoghurt and cinnamon. Sometimes I make chocolate sauce with cocoa powder and coconut oil (and if I want to get fancy; vanilla extract, stevia, and chili powder) and dip slices of banana in it. Also good with almond butter. And coconut butter.
Eating bananas....So simple, even a little monkey can do it.
