Breakfast is one of the favourite meals for a lot of people because it is the first thing that one eats after incessant fasting for 7 to 8 hours. When it comes to breakfast, one has a lot of options like parathas, smoothies, poha, French toast, and many more. While a lot of these food items are considered conventionally healthy, many of them lack the essential nutrients that are necessary for the body, especially early in the morning. Incorporating bananas in a particular dish instantly makes it taste better.
