Beautiful Bananas

Bananas are natural born comfort food. Their slightly sweet flavor and smooth texture make them a good choice for breakfasts-on-the-run and low-fat snacks, as well as in fruit salads, puddings, and pies. Not only are they good to eat, they are also an excellent source of potassium, vitamin B6, and a soluble fiber called pectin, which helps to lower LDL "bad" cholesterol levels.
