According to this nutritionist, bananas aren't the best option for breakfast
A banana is our standard snack on a weekday morning but according to one nutritional expert, Dr. Daryl Gioffre, the fruit isn't the best option for breakfast.
“Bananas seem like the perfect option to grab and go in the morning, but with a closer look, you’ll find that bananas eaten alone aren’t the best option because they’re 25% sugar and moderately acidic".
Speaking to Byrdie, Dr Gioffre said that while bananas do give a quick boost of energy, the snack alone isn't enough to keep you full until lunch.
"They’ll give you a quick boost, but you’ll soon be tired and feeling hungry".
To avoid the crash of a sugar high, the lifestyle expert and health coach recommends steering away from bananas after a meal and when you're snacking on one, try pairing it with a healthy fat and/or spice.
“Because bananas are acidic, you’ll have to neutralise the acid to get the benefits of potassium, fibre, and magnesium without the sugar rush".
