These healthy whole-wheat muffins are packed with fiber and other benefits from the bananas themselves. So, to remind you, here's some other reasons why bananas are the bomb for almost everyone, including bodybuilders:
Bananas Contain Many Important Nutrients
Bananas are packed with muscle-building nutrients, notably fiber and several antioxidants. Plus, they’re basically fat-free. In one medium sized banana you’ll reap:
Bananas May Moderate Blood Sugar Levels
Studies show that bananas’ pectin, plus resistant starch when unripe, may moderate blood sugar levels after meals.
Bananas May Support Heart Health
Bananas are a great dietary source of potassium, which helps to maintain heart health, especially blood pressure control. Studies show that people with a potassium-rich diet have up to a 27% lower risk of heart disease.
Plus, don’t forget magnesium! Bananas have a decent amount of this nutrient, which is also important for heart health.
Bananas Can Reduce Your Appetite to Help You Lose Weight
Both pectin and resistant starch have been shown to have appetite-reducing effects and increase the feeling of fullness after meals.
Bananas May Have Benefits for Exercise
Bananas are like gold for athletes. Because of their high mineral content and easily digested carbs, bananas may help reduce muscle cramps and soreness from exercising. Don’t hesitate to eat one before your work-out.
Start the day right with this healthy breakfast muffin! These are great for taking to work and sharing with the family.
