Don’t Go Bananas

Fried foods are not typically on the healthy list or something I enjoy. When my husband experimented with a recipe for plantain I was open to try it. Then when these little fried slices were in front of me I was more reluctant to ingest it than in the beginning. The plantain was fried in a bit of coconut oil and then dusted with cinnamon. They were a starchy delight! If you are training for a long distance race you might try these little treats. Coconut oil is full of beneficial fats that the body uses resourcefully and it’s just enough to crisp the fruit without a greasy film.  It’s nice to have alternative fuel for those long hauls. Happy eating, training, and living! ~trvw
