You’ve probably heard it: “An apple a day keeps the doctor away”. Well it’s true. Apples are anti-inflammatory and protect against disease. While an apple any time of day is good, I’ve read that an apple in the morning is best. This is because the body digests fruit best on an empty stomach. I’ve also read that eating fruit is the best way to replenish cellular fluids.
I hated apples when I was a kid. Actually, I really hated most fruit. My mom only bought Red Delicious apples when it turns out that I like Granny Smith. Another thing that held me back from eating apples was biting into the skin. While I know that the skin holds the most nutrients, I just can’t stand its texture. Then one day, I realized I could peel my apple and cut into thin like chips. Just like that, I learned to love apples. Good thing too, because the more I learn about this tree fruit, the more I want to eat it. It’s natural medicine.
I give the cores of my apples to our resident squirrel. He comes to our balcony everyday for almonds and apples. 🙂
This has been a hectic week and I just haven’t had the energy to cook. 😦
But I have a quick, inexpensive option for you the next time your schedule gets hectic.
A delicious sandwich on a French baguette. I filled mine with rotisserie chicken, shredded lettuce, onions, mayonnaise, salt, and pepper. When I make this sandwich in the summer, I add avocado and red onions. Bacon is always a great addition. Mmmm. Chili Cheese Fritos on the side. Yum.
