Banana QFilipino people always treat eating as their favorite pastime, and because of this they can’t help but gain weight. Other people still prefer to have some snacks even they have eaten their breakfast, lunch or dinner.
However, most of Filipino people eat snacks in the afternoon. Some of people who are better off usually eat on restaurants, or in their houses. They eat sandwiches with juice or order a pizza with softdrinks. Eating snacks are not bad to our health, we just have to choose what’s the best snack. The better alternative would be to eat some fruits rich in nutrients. As an ordinary girl here in Philippines, we eat cheaper alternatives. One of our food options can really be enough for a Filipino's stomach, but with a reasonable price. It is called a Banana Q.
Banana Q is a deep fried banana coated with brown sugar. The best banana you can use in cooking Banana Q is Saba (it must not so ripe but enough to be cooked). They use brown sugar because it is sweeter and it sticks to the banana as u fry it. It is also skewered on bamboo stick, so that it would be easy to eat and hold. I assure you after you ate Banana Q you will love it!
