I am on a big fruit craze right now. Every summer I am just craving fruits so today I wanted to share some recipes that include apples in your daily snacking.
Apples have tons of antioxidants that are disease-fighting compounds; research says that apples can help with healing and lowering risk of Alzheimer, Parkinson’s, type 2 diabetes or cancer…
Apples are full of pectin, known as a soluble fiber (4g in one apple) that brings you lots of health benefits, such as: lowering cholesterol levels, detoxifying your liver, helping with IBS, curing constipation/diarrhea, boost your immune system and so on.
So why not to choose a simple solution for your optimum health. Especially thatan apple +PB combo is so tasty.
