Fall is a great time to discover or rediscover your love for apples. Apples are yummy and for ~60-100 calories each (of course depending on size) you can get vitamins and minerals as well as insoluble fiber and soluble fiber! Sounds like a lot for a little, right? So, plan on heading out to the nearest apple orchard and doing a little u-pick (for the physical activity) and collecting some delicious apples. Not sure what to do with them? Here are 5 ways to incorporate apples into your meal plan:
1. Make homemade applesauce! Follow THIS link for detailed instructions. Add a bit of zero calorie sweetener if more sweetness is desired
2. Simple as a sliced apple-cut that baby up and chow down with some low-fat yogurt as a dip!
3. On-the-go. Easy as that.
4. Apple Salsa-sounds like a fiesta, huh? Follow THIS link for the recipe.
5. Top your Vanilla Health One Meal Replacement 1 x 1 with sliced, cooked apples and sprinkle with cinnamon for an apple cobbler..mmmm
Are you feeling the fall-ness yet?
