An Apple a day, keeps the Doctor Away!
By Terry Orr
A few months ago, one of our grocery store started carrying mini red apples – they are delicious and perfect single serving size!
Red Apple Facts:
Red apple trees bear fruit at age for or five, and can live to be 200 years old
Pectin is a beneficial component of red apples; it reduces the absorption of cholesterol and fights heart disease.
Apples have a high nutritional value to keep you healthy. The peel alone contains antioxidants that help reduce damaged cells and fight some diseases. Apples are also fat, sodium, and cholesterol free!
Did you know that there are 7,500 varieties of apples grown throughout the world? They can come in a variety of shapes, flavors, and colors including all shades of red, green, and yellow.
I love all variety apples and try to eat at least three a week. This delicious fruit can be eaten raw, cooked, baked, or juiced. Apples are one of the few fruits that you can find fresh any time of the year.
Go ahead - help yourself to one of nature’s true wonders!
