"I like to clean out the fridge and cupboards by using all the random ingredients I have left to create a simple new dish that may not have been on my initial meal plan."

"I'm sick of recipes that taste the same every time you make them. My great-grandmother, who lived through two world wars, used to start every recipe with "Man tar va man har", ie "you take what you have at hand." "

Bananas

Bananas are Real Cheap Food!

Bananas are usually the cheapest fresh fruit in the store.  It’s important to eat plenty of fresh fruits, and bananas are packed with lots of health benefits. Some say they even help reduce depression.  Others say they aren’t a real treatment, but they can still help reduce depressive symptoms.   Bananas are good for breakfast, lunch, dinner, desserts and snacks.  They’re more versatile than you might have imagined.

In addition to eating them fresh, just as they are, I freeze them to make banana “ice cream.” They are good dried in a food dehydrator.  You can add them to breads and they are an excellent component of homemade nutrition bars.

Bananas are portable, they are perfect to take along for lunch.  Well, almost perfect.  They do squish, so don’t put them in your pocket (unless you dehydrate them, in which case, yay!).
