Apart from the fact that dodo is the sweetest tasting food ever Laughing, it comes with a lot of health benefits. Check this out. According to SFGate, these vegetables called plantains are rich in certain vitamins and minerals that contribute to good health.It supplies fiber which promote an efficient digestive system and can prevent constipation; it supplies Potassium, an essential mineral that regulates your heart beat and enables your muscles to function normally, vitamin A  to support your eyesight and help prevent certain eye disorders. What else? A serving of plantains contains small amounts of calcium, iron, magnesium, folate and vitamin K. Plantain can be cooked and eaten in different ways.

    I equally enjoy plantain but I prefer to eat it boiled most times with gizzard sauce. My favourite food is dried beans cooked with either dried fish or ice fish. Dried beans are a good source of protein and iron; they’re naturally cholesterol-free and low in fat and sodium; and they even contain calcium. As if that wasn’t enough, they’re also high in fiber and folate and help to maintain a healthy digestive track. They are also a very economical source of protein.

    Well plantain is essential to human health but i don’t have favourit food.My activity for the day determines what i will eat for the day.For instance, i eat brain food like tea with some slice of bread whenever i want to read or deliver public speech.But if it is a day that i will involve myself in manual work,i will eat energy giving food with a fruit that will supplies me with coenzyme.This is my method of feeding.Catch you later.

      Am seeing Plantain not Banana.
      Plantain is my favorite food; fry,cook,roast and flour/powdery form, both ripe or unripe I enjoys it.The peal I mean it’s back is useful, is medicinal. Please ask your doctor/ a pharmacist.

    Healthy food is an essential part of healthy living. I love oil beans and dodo or fried sweat potato. The contender happens to be: Egg plant stew with boiled unripe plantain. Plantain all the way, it really fills. Lol. SL u rock. %
