Long Lasting Bananas

unnamed (10)

Bananas are amazing! Not only do they taste great, but you can buy one for 19 cents at Trader Joe’s!!! I don’t know any other food that I can buy that cheap!

I love having a banana with breakfast, a snack, in a smoothie, a substitute in cookies, and even in my pancakes. They are such a versatile fruit!

Also, with Weight Watchers they are zero points. Lately when I am craving something sweet I have been grabbing a banana to curve that sweet tooth!

When Paul and I go to the grocery store we tend to get about 14 bananas…now I know that is a lot but if we each eat only one a day that lasts us a week.

For the first half of the week we grab from the a nice, yellow bunch. As the week continues the greener bananas start to ripen so that by Friday we still have yellow bananas.

Sometimes even when buying the green bunch of bananas they ripen faster than what we can eat. This is always frustrating, but I have found a solution. Reynolds Wrap!

I am not sure why, but when we wrap the top of the banana with Reynolds Wrap it makes the banana last longer! This has been a great find!!

      Your welcome! When mine turn brown I put them in the freezer to save for baking.
