Bananas are a great snack, low in fat and cholesterol, high in vitamin B16, containing manganese, vitamin C, potassium and fibre. They’re perfect to fight off hunger pangs at any time of day. Combine them with a source of protein and you’ve got stellar workout fuel.

Banana, coconut and raspberries is my go-to smoothie combination in the morning - especially good for those new to the smoothie world as it tastes great. You’ve also get some good quality protein and some healthy fats from the coconut. Yum.
