The prompt for my International Zine Month 2020: Zine A Day project for Day 4 was Banana. For me, that meant journeying into the kitchen!
I don’t put much effort into my cooking on an everyday basis, my meals are always cobbled together from whatever is in the house, and they are as easy as I can make them. I do enjoy cooking, I just rarely make the time for it. Recently, I have begun to collect recipes of dishes I want to cook, and I am slowly experimenting in the kitchen. This zine is a result of those experimentations, in particular, my experimentations with bananas!! This zine is also a little bit of an experiment, as I combined hand-drawn elements, and digital elements!
Bananas are among the most important food crops on the planet. Bananas are a healthy source of fibre, potassium, vitamin B6, vitamin C, and various antioxidants and phytonutrients. Bananas are a rich source of healthy carbohydrates, which occur mainly as starch in unripe bananas and sugars in ripe bananas. Unripe bananas contain resistant starch, which functions like fibre, aiding your gut and promoting healthy blood sugar levels. Bananas are a good source of potassium. A diet high in potassium can lower blood pressure in people with elevated levels and benefits heart health.
Bananas are delicious!
