Bananas are an amazing fruit with so many health benefits for you. They are rich in fibre, pectin and also act as a prebiotic, all factors that aid in the digestion process. Bananas contain high levels of tryptophan which converts into serotonin once ingested. Serotonin is a ‘happy mood’ neurotransmitter in the brain. More reason on why bananas are good for you. 

Soy milk is a great alternative to dairy milk especially for individuals who are lactose intolerant or who have allergies to some substances in dairy milk. It is a great source of vegetable based proteins that are essential for human development and growth and contains minimal cholesterol compared to dairy milk. Soy milk also does not contain any hormones so it does not disrupt the natural functioning of the body.
