Organic applesThis is the season for harvesting apples! Organic apples of every kind, sweet or tart, eat them whole of make a delicious dessert that is healthy and will have the kids come running for more.  We need to take advantage of apples in every way we can to keep our family on the road to a healthy and green lifestyle. Some have even said they are one of the healthiest foods and their natural healing powers are one of Nature’s true gifts.  Put them in your kids lunch, give some to your neighbors and they will surely remember your kindness, or you can even stick one in your purse or briefcase for a quick healthy snack.

 

  • Apples are naturally low in calories so if you are watching your weight they are an excellent choice, while they help keep you on track on your road to a healthy weight, they will also help prevent constipation, lower your risk of heart disease, and help prevent cancer.
  • Try to make sure you eat the skin of organic apples because this is where most of the healing powers resides.
  • Organic apples are a great choice to give to Halloweener’s that come to your door instead of all that sugary, toxic candy filled with artificial ingredients dyes, additives, and just plain junk.

Tips For Using Apples:

  • A common problem when using fresh apples is they tend to brown. To avoid the  browning effect when slicing apples for a recipe, simply put the slices in a bowl of cold water with a spoonful of lemon juice for a few minutes.
  • While you’re at it you can slice extra and use in future recipes, just put them in plastic bags or containers. The sliced apples will freeze well and be quick and convenient to use for your next recipe.
  • You can add sliced apples to green salads, or add to raw yogurt, and they are always great in fruit salad.

It’s not always easy to get the kids or even Dad to eat fruits but this recipe will be a treat that they will ask you to make over and over. It is mouth-watering healthy way that I promise you they wouldn’t argue about eating. If fact you might just get a big kiss for making it!

This has always been a big hit when I have made it for any occasion.

  3. “An apple a day” or more…is definitely great for our health! Recently my husband was suffering from extended constipation (yes, I said it) and I went to the pharmacist on his behalf for advice. She advised me to have him follow the 3 F’s: Fiber (in the form of apples with the skin), Fluids, Fitness! Well, I immediately headed to my local farmer’s market and bought lots of sweet, delicious and nutritious organic apples, sliced up a few for him and introduced him to his new “favorite fiber snack”. Suffice it to say, eating more apples helped him immensely. Of course, I can’t wait to try your yummy recipe for Caramel Apple Delight. This will entice him to eat even more apples!
