This is one of my clients’ favorite Go-To Snacks! Bananas are not just a good source of B vitamins, they are low in sodium and contain Vitamin C and A as well as high levels of Iron and Potassium. The natural fiber in bananas also contributes to numerous health benefits. For instance, bananas contain Trypophan, a type of protein that the body converts to Seratonin, a hormone known for making you feel happy and improving your mood!
Aside from the bananas, these tasty wraps include other nutritional powerhouse ingredients such as the proteins in Greek yogurt and Nut Butter, the energy boosters in Honey and the blood sugar stabilizer of Cinnamon. Each of these ingredients make my Nut Butter Wraps a healthy and delicious snack anytime of the day!
