Apple: It's Not Just a Computer!

An Apple a Day...

This fall savor one of nature’s most delicious in season superfoods – apples. Apples have been shown to protect the heart by lowering “bad” cholesterol and upping “good” heart protective cholesterol. One large apple also packs over five grams of fiber, twenty percent of the minimum daily target, a key nutrient for heart health, optimal digestion, and weight control. Other studies have linked apple consumption to better blood sugar regulation, improved lung function, and even an increase in muscle mass! Enjoy an apple “as is” or sliced with almond butter for dipping, chopped and whipped into a smoothie, or oven baked as a healthy dessert alternative.
