What I do
I eat the peels as a snack for me. No banana peels for me though. I am not that brave. Eating the peels is a great way to waste less as well. As parents, we often go long periods of time without eating. We get caught up in the craziness of the day.
When I go too long without eating I find that I have less patience, am more tired, and I make poorer food choices. When you get to the point that you are starving that is when the unhealthy food looks especially appealing. You are looking for a quick fix to your hunger. Having healthy snacks help to prevent that from happening.
If you find yourself with left over peels consider them as a snack for you. Just think your body is getting the best part, and you are left with less to clean up!
Do you have any snack tips?
