Since I started working full time, I packed a banana in my lunch every day. I would eat the banana at some point throughout the middle of the day along with my other healthy snacks. Everything was fantastic.
Until one day.
I did not pack a banana.
Half way through the day, my eyes began to feel heavy. My brain began to feel burned out. My head began to feel tight. And I just felt so tired.
The next day, I didn’t pack a banana AGAIN.
The whole thing repeated itself in my body.
That was a Friday. The next Monday, I packed a banana. I ate it.
Although, I wasn’t aware of it, I felt fantastic all day long. I had energy, I felt strong, and I felt good!
The next day, I forgot a banana. Oops. Big mistake.
Once again, the fatigue came knocking. I realized at that point the banana made all the difference. The days that followed, I packed a banana and ate it. Each day, I had a banana, I felt great. The few days I’d forget a banana, or ran out of bananas, fatigue!
Today we bought groceries. We bought a ton of bananas. I love bananas. They change my life. They fill me with joy. Thank you, God, for bananas!
