Wordless Wednesday…Oh, You Meant Bananas?!


I misread the National Calendar App and thought it was National Bananatude Day!!! As it turns out, it’s really National Banana Day. 


It’s easy for me to mix up bananas and the Bananatude Group.


Both are a part of my daily routine.
Both can manage your blood pressure and help your mood. 


And, yes, this is a shameless plug for the Group Bananatude.  By the Way…Bananatude is open again for Wordless Wednesday, Speechless Sundays, and other fun posts.

Had to go out early this morning for a yearly physical and had to fast for bloodwork. I really appreciated the banana I brought along to eat afterwards!

Always have bananas on hand, they are a great fruit, tasty and delicious and useful for making a guilt free ice cream, just freeze and blend. The group also is wonderful, I follow on Facebook too.

Thanks Nick Vandekar, 610-203-4543 I've never thought of freezing bananas then blending them to make ice cream!!!!
