Do you remember when your parents used to preach the “There are people in other countries that are starving” every time you were sitting at the table wasting food? Well I do and I am positive that it was that statement from way back in my childhood that popped it’s way into my psyche causing me to turn this
And If you are wondering how I managed to end up with seven “aged” bananas, well let’s just say this is what happens when you do not perform a last minute check before you leave for vacation (don’t ask). Anyway, fast forward to the day I decided not to be wasteful and I can actually recall standing there staring at the bananas contemplating their fate.
I have to tell you though, aside from being proud that I was not being wasteful, I enjoyed some amazing treats. I made healthy banana muffins for the kids to have for snacks or breakfast which they loved and a banana cake that had me shockingly in love. It was so good that I had to send it to work with my husband (side note, he didn’t get any at work since the cake was gone in less than 2 hours).
So as I always say, waste not want not. Next time you see your bananas getting passed their prime, because you bought too many or just got too busy to grab a potassium boost in the morning, cheer up because an awesome alternative is just an hour away.
