Bananas & Resistant Starch

Traditional Algerian Couscous for Lunch!

I figured I'd throw a banana into my oatmeal this morning after reading that they have a “particular type of fiber called resistant starch: Your body can’t absorb it, so that keeps you full longer and may improve insulin sensitivity and reduce fat accumulation.”
 It was a yummy addition!

Breakfast: Oatmeal with Banana and Walnuts
½ cup plain oatmeal, cooked with fat free milk, in microwave
2 tbsp of plain walnuts
½ Banana, sliced
Plain cinnamon
5 oz. glass of OJ
Cup of coffee, black

Lunch:  Traditional Algerian Couscous with Chicken (from the freezer)
Couscous cooked with North African spices, chicken, zucchini, carrots, & potatoes
½ Avocado
Fresh cilantro, cut up on top
Glass of Water

Snack:   ¼ cup lightly salted mixed nuts, Water
