We can't say enough about this delicious, little gem.
The apple is very high in antioxidants (flavonoids) - especially the peel - and also high in fiber. It is connected to a reduction in the risk of chronic disease, including cancer, heart disease, COPD, stroke, asthma, Alzheimer's, and diabetes, among others.
It also helps with weight loss and lowering cholesterol.
Plus, it's easy to eat and plentiful, especially now during "prime apple time." Have one for breakfast with a nut butter and other fruits or carry with you for a midday snack. Don't forget to eat organic!
