Fall is in the air and that means apples are in season! There are so many varieties to choose from. Indulge and pick one of each kind to see which one you enjoy most. Not only are apples juicy, crunchy and tasty – they’re good for you, too! Here’s just a few reasons to snack on an apple (or two) a day:
HEART HEALTHY. The amount of fiber in combination with other nutrients from an apple has an effect on blood fat levels, thus, supporting the cardiovascular system. Apples also provide Vitamin C to support healthy immune functions.
HELPS LOWER CHOLESTEROL. Consistently eating apples have been found to lower cholesterol and other heart disease markers because of the antioxidant compounds found in apples.
GREAT PRE-WORKOUT SNACK. Snacking on an apple before you exercise may aid to endurance by making oxygen more readily available to the lungs because of the antioxidant called quercetin.
HELPS REGULATE BLOOD SUGAR LEVELS. Eating an apple helps slow down the digestion of carbohydrates. This helps lower the rate of glucose absorption from our digestion trace. Basically, apples help lessen the sugar load on our bloodstream.
Try this tasty recipe! Perfect for Fall!
