How ‘Bout Them Apples?

An apple a day may not keep the doctor away, but it’s a healthy choice anyway.

 

For one thing, you can’t beat the convenience of an apple. They are an easy go-to and grab-and-go snack as they come in their own packaging—meaning you can eat the skin.

 

They also play nicely with other healthy foods. You can combine this healthy carb with a low fat cheese; spread some peanut butter; and they’re great in salads and salsas too.

 

Finally, since apples are about 85% water by weight, they can help fill you up without a lot of calories.

 

I have an apple (Red Delicious are my preference) almost every day, sliced, and then I like to spread a teaspoon or two of low-fat cottage cheese on each slice. Add a cup of coffee, and I’ve got a great afternoon snack at my desk.

 

This article, 13 Types of Apples—and How to Use Them, lists the 13 types of apples (frankly, I didn’t even realize there were that many; did you?) and gives you suggestions how to use each of them in recipes.
