Originally the scientific name for banana was musa sapientum, meaning ‘fruit of the wise men,’ it could very well been called musa ludum or ‘fruit of the sportsmen.’ Besides being a good source for vitamin C, potassium and dietary fiber, they are great for sports and workouts because they replenish necessary carbohydrates, glycogen and body fluids burned during a game or exercise. As such a Banana Shake makes for an apt pre-match or pre-exercise drink. Add to that Spinach and you have unlimited Popeye power to tap into.
