 :) Hey Surly and RE,

My wife discovered a great (real 😋) banana 🍌 treat from Vitacost. It's a way to get all that good potassium from bananas without frequent trips to the grocery store. They aren't cheap, but I think they are worth it.

This guy in Brazil started dehydrating bananas that were blemished or too ripe for marketing some decades ago. Vitacost sells them now. They taste great and have the same nutritive value as fresh bananas due to the clever dehydration process (partial, they can be chewed and are not rock hard like other dehydrated products out there - to prevent further ripening, even though dehydration is partial, they use some banana dust over the bite sized portions).

😋

This is a great way to make use of food that would have been thrown out previously due to the ridiculous fruit marketing practices that force markets to only sell fruit with no blemishes. Also, this guarantees a higher marketable yield (and profit  :icon_mrgreen:) for growers, as well as saving a lot of energy, because these products require no refrigeration whatsoever.

RE could stock up on these to guarantee he has enough potassium if he is homebound due to health problems. We all need potassium. Without enough, we begin to feel fatigued and listless. We can lose muscle tone from lack of potassium. This is not limited to our large muscles. Lack of K can adversly affect peristaltic esophageal movement needed to send food down to the stomach and also intestinal movement needed for proper digestion.

SNIPPET:

Potassium Deficiency Symptom #1: Muscle Weakness

Muscle weakness is the most common symptom associated with a potassium deficiency. Potassium plays a key role in promoting muscle strength and the overall wellbeing of muscle tissue. The muscle weakness can make it more difficult for an affected person to properly move their legs and arms.

Potassium Deficiency Symptom #2: Muscle Cramps
In addition to muscle weakness, many individuals who suffer from a lack of potassium in their body also experience muscle cramps. Muscle cramps may be mild or severe, and can affect a number of different muscle groups in the body.

NOTE:
There are other foods out there besides bananas that have more potassium, but I like the taste of bananas.  ;D
