Did you know a truly ripe banana (aka “ready to eat” banana) is supposed to have brown spots on the skin?? Before I became better informed about the vegan lifestyle, I always thought spotty bananas= rotting. This is so false though, spotty bananas actually mean they’re ready to eat, whereas perfectly yellow bananas are UNDER ripe!! In spotty bananas, the simple sugars have formed enough to be easily broken down by the digestive system, but in non-spotty bananas with green stems, the sugars are still starches that cannot be digested by the body. Good to know!! Eat your spotty bananas!! Xx
