These babies work so well in any weight loss plan.

They can be used for snack time and they travel so well in their own protective container, compliments of Mother Nature herself.

They also make a healthy dessert after meal time.

They are totally void of cholesterol mg, they contains a good dose of dietary fiber content and they are one of the richest sources available for potassium mg.

All smart dieters should go absolutely ape over bananas.
