A slip up

If a recipe or menu says ‘banana,’ I’m there.  But the banana peel?

I’ve always treated like compost.

Well, it turns out the peel contains more potassium and soluble fiber than the fruit.  Plus, it can put you in a better mood because it reacts with the serotonin in your brain.

But if you just can’t get past the flavor of the peel, rub it on your skin.  The peel is a near-miracle drug; it can reduce skin inflammation, stop itching, remove warts, smooth out wrinkles, and even get rid of acne!

Who’s the monkey now?  Me for not knowing this years ago!
