Saba Bananas

When my daughter and son in law are not looking, I try to infiltrate my grandchildren's diet with my own ' theories or experiments' . It goes without saying that their yayas are under my scrutiny most of the time.

One of my favorite discoveries is the SABA BANANAS,  Our yaya of 32 years told me that in Bicol, where she comes from, the SABA is eaten ripe in it's natural form, not boiled or fried etc. If it is eaten this way on an empty stomach it can act as a laxative.

When any of my grandchildren has a  digestive problem, it's the SABA BANANA that we turn to.

I love Saba, ^^ we have so many Saba trees at the back yard (in my home back in the province) and our fave dish is banana con yelo (sweeetened sava slice+crushed ice+optional milk) ^^. Of course, Nilagang saba is also a fave, and my mom uses them in cooking Beef Nilaga and Kare-kare too, ^^

Hi Asun, hope you get better soon. If all else fails and you can't get a good night sleep, try an antihistamine that will make you drowsy! Ha! Ha! Ha!
