Think bananas are boring? Think again! They are actually one of the best all round foods and packed full of goodness. I love them and it’s a bonus that they are so healthy!

Here are my top five reasons to include them in your diet:

1) Bananas are packed full of nutrients including potassium, vitamin C, vitamin B6 and fibre

2) They boost your energy levels- eating just 2 will give you enough energy to work out for 90 minutes

3) Bananas help overcome depression due to high levels of tryptophan, which is converted into serotonin which makes us feel happy

4) As they are high in potassium and low in salt, bananas are credited with being able to lower blood pressure and protect against heart attacks and strokes

5) The high levels of potassium and magnesium makes bananas great at regulating blood pressure
