One of Americas favorite fruits the apple is more popular today than ever and with very good reason. What once were the only apples marketed in the US were Red and Golden Delicious and Granny Smith and though still popular today, the varieties have grown.
It turns out there are dozens of verities grown and available, many year round. Today we find Gala, Fuji, Pink Lady, Honeycrisp, Cortland, Empire and many more. Some sweeter and crisper than others.
ninety percent of the pesticides and fifty percent of the vitamins are in the skin. So eat only organic apples and keep the skin on. Apples are full of fiber, water and phytonutrients that serve the body very well. An apple a day is good and three a day are likely better!
As we move into winter the apples in the store will begin coming in from New Zeeland and the prices will begin going up. Consider adding more of them to your own diet and they are also great with almond butter!
Investigate them further and review one of the thousands of studies proving that apples are truly are in our best interest. Enjoy your weekend and Be Well!
