Sweet Delight

applesThis past fall I found major affection for apples.  For the past couple years I have been very mindful with what types of food products I am consuming as try to eat a relatively clean diet. I’m sure we will discussing my opinions on food products in the future because it is topic very interesting to me.  In simplistic terms eating clean means in-taking more plants and less things that have many ingredients.  So in my journey to eat cleaner I started to look for different types of fruits I could eat throughout the year at a reasonable price.  My current favorite apple is Braeburn, they’re affordable, crispy and taste wonderful.  Here are some interesting facts about apples:

Two-thirds of the fiber and lots of antioxidants are found in the peel.
