Dole contacted me recently about a promotion they are running to promote bananas: "366 ways to go Bananas". I didn’t need any convincing to blog this campaign for Dole; bananas are one of my go-to safe snacks, especially when traveling. As they have their own wrapper, they have little to no possibility for contamination. They are also so nutritious: filled with fiber, potassium and lots of natural yummy sugar for a quick healthy lift. For a special treat, I love an healthier version of an Elvis sandwich (Smucker’s organic natural peanut butter & bananas on GF bread) which probably tastes just as delicious with a PB substitute like Soy NutButter, Sunbutter or a tree nut butter. Bananas are top eight allergen free, easily accessible at your local supermarket, here in NYC street vendors sell fresh fruit including bananas on street corners; and economical.
As a special treat, Dole is doing a contest giveaway for my newsletter: coupons good for a month’s worth of bananas for six  readers! But you can only win if you sign up here or on the right of this blog. The next newsletter comes out soon so don’t delay.
*Contest rules: contest open for 24 hours from when newsletters is mailed, winners are picked using random.org and limited to residents in the 50 United States.*
If you are a latex, kiwi, avocado allergic check with your board certified allergist before consuming bananas.
