Hello everyone. Welcome to probably the most important blog post of all times. Today I’m going to be talking about how to take good care of your bananas.
I know, I know. This probably isn’t that important to most people. But I could also argue that from a happiness and food waste and food saftey prospective, it could be important or useful to some people.
Most people who know me IRL or via Instagram associate me with bananas. What began as sort of a joke turned into a thing, and now I have banana socks, people constantly tag me on all banana-related things on the internet, etc etc. Heck, on my last day at Trader Joe’s, the crew even bought me a whole dang box of 100 bananas (thanks store 724, I love you all forever)!
Now, I am not a big fan of people writing about things they don’t know about. This is why I don’t write about sports or jewelry making or knitting or music. It is also why I get so very peeved by everyone thinking they are qualified to write about nutrition, health, and the environment when the only education they’ve had has been from Google University or Sponsored College. So I guess since I’m not a true banana expert, I feel a bit weird putting out this information.
That said, I am a certified FDA FSMA food safety and quality certified individual, so I do know a few things about keeping food safe. But regardless, please note that this article is intended to be light-hearted, informative, and fun.
(^^Me trying to justify writing an article without citing peer-reviewed literature for every single thing I mention for two straight paragraphs)
So read on for some super useful tips on how to pamper bananas. I hope you enjoy! Leave post ideas below. I’m committed to this every other day blogging in April thing!
