Spot a Banana

acting - dessert - dinner - fruit

Abe won’t eat bananas the second they have spots on them – that’s when I start liking them!

Devoured one in between meetings all day, came home to walk Julius and eat more fruit…

…then threw together a late afternoon meal, with the help of Trader Joe’s Corn and Chile Tomato-less Salsa…

…and Tomato-Basil Hummus. (Also in the bowl – Kale, Spinach, Turkey, and Coconut Cashews.)

An Arctic Zero bar before heading out for my first acting class with Nick – he brought some yummy-looking macaroons but I didn’t wind up eating any.

    I’m with Abe re: bananas (though the spotted versions are great for baking and freezing to put in smoothies! xo

    I prefer bananas without spots, but will gladly eat most… until they’re perfect for banana bread!

    My husband and I are like that so he eats them first, then I take over. Any I don’t eat go into the freezer for baking.

    Learned from Momofuku Milk Bar Chef/Owner Christina Tosi via “Mind of a Chef” PBS show that bananas with black skin are perfect to use to make banana cream pie (with a chocolate crust).

    I read a study recently that said spotted bananas have more nutrients! Look it up for more info :-)

      Woo! Go me!

    I’m with Abe on this one. I like bananas when they are not yet spotty- just bright yellow and barely ripe. Something about the texture and tannic flavor of ripe bananas turns me off.

    I’m with you on bananas- I LOVE when they’re spotty. (:

    How are the artic zero bars? Although I don’t think I’ve ever seen them @ the grocery store.

      They’re better than the pints = CHOCOLATE

    Just like with pork and foie gras (well, basically all meat), Abe is wrong about bananas. The one pictured could ripen a little more to be perfect for eating (though if I had a bunch, that would be the time to start eating them).
