Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

While plantains look similar to the fruit banana, green plantains are actually a vegetable. Swap out potatoes for green plantains in stews or soups. Furthermore, plantains are a great source of vitamin A and C, which is needed for optimal eye health, normal growth,ward off infections and help body better absorb iron. Regular ground cinnamon works just as well as the organic kind, no need to splurge on spices for this meal! Studies have found just 1/2 a teaspoon per day of cinnamon can dramatically decrease LDL cholesterol, triglycerides and total cholesterol levels in those with type 2 diabetes.
