You know the saying an apple a day keeps the doctor away? Well, it actually holds some truth. Apples are packed with antioxidants, fiber, vitamins, and nutrients and they have very few calories, making it one of the healthiest fruits you could eat.
Apples are considered a healthy carbohydrate, giving you plenty of energy throughout the day. They are also filled with dietary fiber. Because they contain so much fiber, they are great to eat to help maintain healthy digestion and relieve stomach issues. Apples also contain potassium, vitamin C, vitamin B-6, magnesium, iron, vitamin A, and calcium. Apples are known to have many health benefits including aiding in weight loss, helping prevent cancer, lowering blood pressure and lowering the risk of heart disease.
Apples are a nutritious and hydrating fruit that can be eaten any time of the day. You can eat them for breakfast by themselves or by adding them to your yogurt, smoothie, oatmeal or cereal. Apples serve as a great addition to a springtime salad and pair well with pork dishes. You can even add apples to your dessert in a pie, cobbler, or just by itself with a little honey on top.
