When you’re in a rush and find yourself in need of a snack, bananas are an awesome way to go. Not only are they quick and easy to consume, but they’re delicious as well. But now this infographic asks an almost absurd question: Are bananas as bad for you as cookies?
The short answer? It depends.
If you’re looking for a snack to satisfy your hunger without a sugar crash, then bananas do just as good a job as cookies — not a very good one. Does this mean you should grab a cookie instead of a banana from now on? I’d say not. Bananas still provide us with more nutrients than cookies.
Check out this infographic to see where other foods fall on the satiety index. Unless you plan on preparing and carrying fish around with you, apples and oranges look to be the best snack choice.
