I’ve already mentioned how much I love fall and the seasonal foods that go along with it! One of my favorite recipes (stolen from my mother’s great recipe archive) is Apple Crisp. Apples are very easy to bake with and create delicious desserts and amazing aromas.
One medium apple contains around 80 calories and is loaded with both soluble and insoluble fiber, which is beneficial for digestive health, preventing colon cancers, and lowering cholesterol. Apples also contain the flavonoid Quercetin, which has antioxidant properties and promotes heart health and reduce cancer risk.
For a fun weekend activity, go apple-picking or head out to a farmer’s market to get apples at their freshest! If you don’t have the time, they are readily available at supermarkets (or try the NYC Green Carts!). Apples are great to just snack on or can easily be incorporated into salads, glazes and many desserts!
