Freeing Eggs From a Bad Rap – With Links

Bad Eggs

Bananas Are Good Food!

I’m sure you’ve seen those ads like this…
Weeping Banana

…that appear or pop up (annoyingly) when you pull up a recipe or just about any resource regarding health, diet, or nutrition on the Internet. For some reason – and I haven’t yet found one that makes any sense even though I’ve sure been duped into believing temporarily that bananas just might be an unhealthy food – bananas have been given an unfairly deserved bad rap. Having said that, though, bananas are one of the most consumed foods in the world and, in the U.S., are eaten more than apples and oranges combined. That alone is a good sign that common sense does sometimes – very appropriately – rule the day. Read more »
