Today's Reason to Celebrate

August 27, 2011 was

Banana Lovers Day

It's Banana Lovers Day! Today we celebrate one of the most popular fruits in the world. Did you know that the average person eats about 33 pounds of bananas a year? That's approximately 100 individual bananas per person!

Bananas are high in fiber and potassium. These properties can help prevent calcium loss, ulcers, high blood pressure, and certain kinds of cancer. Although bananas are often pictured as growing on trees, the banana “tree” is actually an herb. The banana is the fruit of this herb.

To celebrate Banana Lovers Day, grab a bunch of bananas to share with family and friends. Fry them, grill them, add them to a s'more, or just enjoy them plain. Have fun!

  • August 27, 2011 is also Global Forgiveness Day
  • August is National Peach Month & National Goat Cheese Month & National Water Quality Month
