This morning let's talk about plantain. Do you know the benefits of plantain??

Plantain is cultivated in many tropical countries of the world, and it is known to be rich in iron, fiber, vitamins, minerals, and serotonin. Plantains are the less sweet, starchier equivalent to the banana. Sweet bananas, sometimes called dessert bananas . Although the plantain is classified as a fruit, in many countries, it is used more like a vegetable than a fruit, according to Fruits and Veggies Matter. They can be boiled, baked or fried, much like potatoes.

Cooked plantains are nutritionally very similar to a potato calorie-wise, but contain more of some vitamins and minerals. They are a rich source of fiber, vitamins A, C, and B-6, and the minerals magnesium and potassium.

Tea brewed from it leaves can be used to treat coughs and bronchitis. Also used traditionally for diarrhea, dysentery, and bloody urine. Leaves in poultice used for sores, blisters, swellings, and insect stings. They are also rich in potassium. This nutrient can help with high blood pressure because it helps work against the sodium in your diet. Plantain and Banana are both nutritious to the body .

Plantain also helps with weight loss because high-fibre foods tend to have a lower energy density, which means they provide fewer calories per gram of food. Unripe plantain is useful in the management of diabetes, treatment of anemia, and liver disorders (independent of diabetes) 

It can be enjoyed as boiled,roosted, chips, fried, make into flour and lots more... I hope you start eating plantain now....

Thanks.

Banana has many health benefits, eating green banana in soups stops diarrhea, we can also make desserts with it, such as: fried torticas, banana pancakes ...

To make the fried banana cake use the following ingredients: ripe banana, you can grate or chop it into small pieces, use wheat flour, sugar to taste, egg, a tablespoon of vanilla essence and water, this is placed in a cup, You give it enveloping movements, it should have consistency, that it does not remain liquid, then you place a pan in the kitchen you fry it on both sides, it should be golden and ready, it is a delight. Here I leave you the links so you can see better the recipe for fried banana cake, I also make pancakes with banana, and dessert of banana with passion fruit, review and see better the procedures, make the recipe ... https://read.cash/@mgf2394/fried-banano-cake-49858b54 https://read.cash/@mgf2394/pancakes-with-banana-a7578196 https://read.cash/@mgf2394/dessert-of-banano-with-maracuya-e8bb37f8

Of course both of them are nutritious.... But when plantain is ripe, it's sweet too..... especially fried one. Hope you like fried plantain? Have you wonder why we can't fry banana?🤔
