    Doing nothing is a lost art. Embracing the banana however seems to be still going strong.

    Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

    Bananas are perfect as they are. Yellow, without or with few freckles. Encased in the peel, relatively clean food. Why would anyone want to mess with them?

    I only eat ripe bananas. Green ones give me heartburn if uncooked.

    Pray tell. I have all of this available in my kitchen, and I have never even thought to dare make yogurt myself. I am intrigued. Do share.
    Stumbled into Primal due to food allergies, and subsequent elimination of non-primal foods.

    Me too. Green ones for some reason make my lips/throat/tongue swell up a little bit, too.

    No problem with the yellowish brown ones.

    Yeast will ferment a mash of ripe bananas into alcohol. It'll take a fair number of steps to turn that into something drinkable, though.
