Why Bananas Are The Best Fruit Ever. (Don't Even Try To Argue This!)

Friday, May 16, 2014

Bananas are arguably the greatest fruit there is. Okay, I take that back. There's no argument. Bananas are the best fruit there is.

After being referred to as 'that girl who always buys bananas' at my local grocery store the other day, I've taken it upon myself to educate the masses and explain why bananas are the greatest fruit in existence.

 Just a normal day's work in the life of Katherine. (Also, I'm now on Summer vacation, so clearly I have way too much time on my hands.)

1. You can literally buy boxes with the change in your pocket. Let's face it, bananas are the real fast food.


2. You can eat bananas and wear bananas. (And still be considered normal if not fashionable.)


3. Bananas disguise the taste of greens. So yeah, I basically eat a salad for breakfast, but I swear it tastes like ice cream. (If that's not the definition of winning, then I don't know what is.)

4. You can freeze bananas, and suddenly you don't have fruit. You have ice cream or a smoothie or the nectar of the gods.


5. Bananas are dirt cheap. I can easily go through actual pounds of bananas a week, but it's usually all for under $5.


Where are these prices?!

6. Bananas can be combined with so many different things. PB&B? Granola? Honey? 


7. Do your grocery stores make jokes about fruits besides bananas? I don't think so.

8. Bananas are so cool that you can have a photoshoot with them. (You could arguably have a photoshoot with any fruit I suppose, but would they look this good?)


9. Have you ever seen an unhappy kid with a banana? Not in my house.

So there's that. Bananas rock my socks, and I'm officially on Summer vacation. Can life get much better?

On an off note, I posted this picture on my Instagram, and everyone absolutely loved it.  It's a cute picture, but it's also a reminder that it's okay to put yourself and your health first sometimes :) 

Anyways, have a lovely weekend you beautiful people. Eat lots of bananas and take some time to relax!
