African food did you know?

Plantains are a major staple food in Africa, and are more important in the humid lowlands of West and Central Africa. One hundred or more different varieties of plantain grow deep in the African rainforests. Plantains are high in fiber and are a good source of vitamins A and C, some of the B-vitamins and potassium. ♥
