    Anyway unlike the French, I prefer a salty savoury breakfast.

    Having said that, I won't say no to a banana.

    I knew a guy who ate bananas for breakfast for 20 years or something like that. Apparently, his immune system is super good and he goes on marathons.

    Edit: Not to say eating banana's for breakfast is going to magically make you ready for marathons, but y'know.

    I see. But the question is, if I absolutely do not want to run any marathons, do I have to avoid bananas?

    Haha, I guess so. Well not too bad of a sacrifice, at least it wasn't apples. Or mangos. Or oranges.

    You should start a thread, but then @jamalrob would just move it to the Lounge. Although maybe on something like the Philosophy of Food...

    I'm told the potassium in bananas keeps your muscles from spasming, but what I find more interesting is how it is pronounced. I say bu-na-nuh whereas the British say bu-nah-nah.

    Assuming you can see past the shameless sexuality of this video, this is the way British people say "banana":



    If you want to know how Americans say banana, I've recorded myself saying it for you.

    Collins used to be a great dictionary, and they made a point of saying that their IPA pronunciations were based on Received Pronunciation. Back then they'd never claim that was representative of British English. Garbage.

    Good point actually. Oddly enough I've been Americanized by Russians, because English-speaking Russians have been taught the American words and idioms and not the British.

    I say cilantro and eggplant these days, but my pronunciation remains authentic.

    I don't believe it. Especially in Russia where the cows' fodder consists of bales of pre-collapse Pravda and lengthy texts on dialectics.

    Oh, your comment on not needing sugar on porridge is several hours old. That's how all these other comments popped up since you said that.

    Do you have any idea how many carbs are in a Banana let alone wait for it to go brown and then use it!
    With oatmeal? Good Lord! :gasp:
    Why not just put a couple of teaspoons of Honey on it and go for broke! :roll:

    About a hundred calories in a banana, which isn’t too bad, though surprisingly, a teaspoon of honey is only 21 calories. I would have never guessed that. How did Winnie the Pooh get so chubby? Anyway, blueberries are good too, but they can vary in sweetness or sourness, and some too far gone can have that dreaded mushyness. Half a cup is only 30 calories.

    Carbs darlin, carbs. If you are on a keto diet ideally you stay under 12 carbs to 20 carbs in a day, depending on if you are wanting to maintain your weight or lose.
    26.95 carbs in the nana
    11 for a half cup blueberries
    5.71 for 1 tsp honey
    roughly 40 total without the carbs in the oats
