Dole® Bananas to Start Every Day Full of Happiness and Love

I am not much of a banana eater. I'd rather choose oranges or apples or grapes. But now that I am taking the challenge of No-Rice Policy to lose some weight, I have to replace rice and other carbo-filled food with a supplement that is rich in vitamins and minerals—take note that a serving of a 100-gram banana has 23 grams of carbohydrates. Hearing about bananas as among the qualifiers, I put it on top of my list.

Aside from carbohydrates, banana is also a good source of potassium, iron, calcium, phosphorus, vitamins a, b (thiamine), and c. I have also known that bananas are rich in protein, which is converted to serotonin—a hormone that is known to improve your mood and make you feel happy. Now, tell me, aren't bananas a great package? I won't be having a hard time losing weight any more because I am learning to love my banana and—of course, it is better shared with the ones you love so dearly.
Here's my Entry to the Banana Morning Motto Contest
And speaking of bananas, Dole Philippines launched an online contest dubbed as "Banana Morning Motto," which runs until September 4, 2011. This aims to encourage its consumers and other people to face the day with a positive morning.
In this contest, participants are expected to write down their daily morning mottoes on a banana. If you are interested to join, here's the mechanics:
  • Like the @Dole Fresh Philippines fan page;
  • Click on the Banana Morning Motto Application on the left tab of the page;
  • And simply upload a photo of your morning motto written on a DOLE® Cavendish Banana (make sure you’ve got the Dole sticker in place);
  • Share it with your friends to get votes and increase your chances of winning!
Cool prizes, such as an Executive Massage gift certificate from The Spa, as well as free ten (10) sessions of Zumba Classes, await the winner.
