Event:Healing Foods - Event announcement

Start date: Now
End date: Jun 30
Krithi Say's "I am very excited to guest host Healing Foods event for this month.
This is a wonderful event started by Siri of Cooking with Siri.
 And any guesses on what food I chose for this month's theme... 
Yes, It is "Banana". 
Banana is a favorite fruit for most of us. 
It serves as an instant storehouse of energy due to its carbohydrates 
content and is rich in iron, vitamins, potassium and fiber.
 It is also a natural antacid and provides a cooling effect to
 the body, much needed in this summer. It is one of the
 three royal fruits (Mukkani - meaning three fruits) in Tamil literatures. 
The three royal fruits are Maa (Mango), Palaa 
(Jackfruit) and Vaazhai (Banana).
Almost all part of the banana plant is edible or has its uses. The trunk(stem), 
blossom (flower), plantain (raw banana), banana (fruit) are used as food. 
The banana leaves are traditionally used to serve food and are also used 
as eco-friendly plates."
