That’s Why You Should Eat The Banana Peel More Often

Banana peels are rich in nutrients

Whoever peels bananas throws away what is healthy. I beg your pardon. Banana peels are supposed to be healthy? Oh yes – very even. And that’s exactly why more and more people simply eat banana peel. Not raw – but boiled or baked.

Admittedly – banana peels do not necessarily belong in the repertoire of a star chef. The taste: needs getting used to. But – similar to the pulp itself, banana peels have a special effect. They increase the serotonin value, which immediately puts you in a good mood. And they contain a lot of soluble and insoluble fiber. These fill you up and stimulate digestion.

And what is the best way to eat the banana peel?

If you dare, eat the banana peel raw. It becomes more appetizing if you boil or fry the banana before eating. It doesn’t look pretty, but it tastes better. Our tip: Mix the banana peel together with apples, berries, and bananas to make a smoothie. It tastes irresistibly good and is also healthy. A positive side effect: the banana peels no longer have to be composted.
