Betcha didn't know one of the best hunger fighting foods is the ever-accessible, portable and affordable banana! Recent studies suggest that these yellow guys are packed with resistant starch - a starch that doesn't break down into sugar and therefore doesn't get absorbed into your system. This means you'll be energized and fuller for longer!
Rachel says it pays to go green: Perfectly ripe bananas are fine, but the slightly unripe bananas have more than twice the amount of resistant starch AND less sugar.
