    How do you eat a banana?

    I eat mine with my mouth, but that is besides the point?

    ----------

    The real question is, How do you peel your banana?

    Do you start from the stem end or the bottom end?


    A dinner is riding on the outcome of this poll so please vote honestly.

    (There is no electoral college BS stuff happening so your votes WILL BE COUTNED).

    If you had asked this question a month ago my vote would have been "I don't eat bananas". But since I'm on a health kick right now I've been eating a banana a day. And I heard somewhere that if you peel the banana from the bottom you don't get the little stringy things. The first few I tried it held true. However the last few I've had still had some stringy things on it, but not as much as when you peel it from the top.
    When I heard about peeling from the bottom the person said to watch monkey's peel a banana. They know how to get it done!
    Our goal in life should be - to be as good a person as our dog thinks we are.

    Thank you for the siggy, Michelle!

    When I eat bananas, I usually cut the stem with a knife so I can then peel it from the top of the banana down. It's been a while since I've eaten one. I usually eat apples every day though.

    I've heard the same trick about peeling bananas from the bottom to minimize the stringy things. I usually eat mine with a cat watching closely because bananas go with cereal, which goes with milk, which she loves.

    I would say I pretty much always peel it from the stem down.

    BTW...my brothers' cat Max HATES bananas. If you even get one near him he will shake his paw and turn. LOL.

    Pretty funny Elyse. I love how they are always coming up with gagets to solve problems that do not exist.

    I eat one with my mouth!!!! Doesn't everybody?

    Seriously tho - I peel from the top down. I never gave it any thought to do otherwise. I learned a new trick today - I'll have to give the bottom up a try next time I eat one.

    I'm cutting mine to slices and eat them with rice milk, oatmeal, and chia seeds.

    I haven't eaten a banana in a good 3 years. So I guess, "I don't do bananas".

    I peel and eat from the stem end, never have any problem with stringy bits - but the real answer is I eat bananas with glee! I am no longer allergic to them, but had to avoid them for 10+ years, so now when I eat banana, I REALLy enjoy them!

    I break the stem off and peel from there. I saw a documentary that said monkeys do it the other way 'round. It is supposed to be easier, but I just end up smooshing my nana.


    Another related question is: how green/yellow/spotted do you eat your bananas!

    I like to take a perry knife & cut the bottom of the banana off & then peel it. Then if I have time I will cut it into bite size pieces with the perry knife. The banana skin can really smell up the waste basket along with the house so I throw that out on the garden.
