The skins of most fruits and vegetables contain the richest sources of vitamins  and minerals as they are affected by the light during growth, acting to absorb the light and protect the fruit. Banana peel is not just a timeless comedy prop, it’s an overlooked nutritional goldmine. Do you know that you can actually eat all your banana, from the flesh inside to the very last piece of skin? The thought of chomping down on the tough, yellow skin may be off-putting, but it’s worth it: the skin is full of even more of the good stuff that banana flesh contains, like potassium, magnesium and fibre. Plus it’s jam-packed with tryptophan, which is key in creating serotonin – the chemical that can help alleviate depression and assist with healthy sleep. The banana skins also contain dietary fibre which can reduce cholesterol levels in the blood. B
