The peanut is widely grown in the tropics and subtropics, being important to both small and large commercial producers. It is classified as both a grain and legume. Peanuts are usually categorized as "nuts" for culinary purposes and in common English more generally. Peanuts are packed with healthy fats and high quality protein. They’re also fairly high in calories. Peanuts are high in fat, consisting mostly of mono- and polyunsaturated fatty acids. They are often used to make peanut oil. Peanuts are low in carbs. This makes them a good dietary choice for people with diabetes. Peanuts are an excellent source of many vitamins and minerals. These include biotin, copper, niacin, folate, manganese, vitamin E, thiamine, phosphorus, and magnesium.
The oat (Avena sativa), sometimes called the common oat, is a species of cereal grain grown for its seed, which is known by the same name. While oats are suitable for human consumption as oatmeal and oat milk, one of the most common uses is as livestock feed. Oats are a whole grain that is commonly eaten for breakfast as oatmeal (porridge). Oats are rich in carbohydrates and fiber, but also higher in protein and fat than most other grains. They are very high in many vitamins and minerals. Oats contain many powerful antioxidants, including avenanthramides. These compounds may help reduce blood pressure and provide other benefits.
Banana is an elongated, edible fruit, botanically a berry produced by several kinds of large herbaceous flowering plants in the genus "Musa". The fruit is variable in size, color, and firmness, but is usually elongated and curved, with soft flesh rich in starch covered with a rind, which may be green, yellow, red, purple, or brown when ripe. Bananas pack a variety of essential vitamins, minerals, and health promoting plant compounds. Bananas are naturally very low in protein and fat. Thus, they don’t make a completely balanced meal or snack on their own. Bananas are a good source of fiber. A high fiber intake has been linked to reduced body weight and a number of health benefits.
