Earth Day 2014: Go Bananas

Ripe or raw, bananas are full of energy and nutrients.

Better than an energy drink, bananas are a superfood. The entire tree can be consumed in one form or another.

A gret pick up fruit and snack, planting a banana tree is very wasy.

It’s good for the heart, controls blood pressure, aids in weight loss and builds strong bones. And this is just the fruit. The entire banana tree – from its fruit and flowers to its stem and leaves – is of use. Bananas make for a great pick-up fruit and snacks – banana chips, anyone or, perhaps, a glass of thick banana shake? The flowers make for a delectable Bengali dish mocha ghonto as well as a dry dish down south. The stem is cooked in several parts of India and south-east Asia. The leaves make for perfect environmentally-friendly plates.

Gifts: Birthday, anniversary, special occasions, planting and gifting banana trees is considered auspicious.
Banana are consumed as chips, mixed veggies and as ripe fruit.

The presence of banana tree and leaves is considered auspicious in Hindu culture and planting of banana trees symbolises happiness, marital bliss and prosperity.
