You have heard it before, “An apple a day keeps the doctor away”. Alongside sweet potatoes, apples are one of the most nutritious foods you can eat; high in fiber, high in vitamin C and low in calories! Apples have only a trace of sodium, and no fat or cholesterol.
Apples are high antioxidants called polyphenols, which are found in both the skin of the apples as well as in the meat. So don’t throw away the skin, where you find the greatest amount of benefits.
Research has found that apples may mitigate the effects of asthma and Alzheimer’s disease.
Fall is a great time to combine apples and sweet potatoes for delicious entrees and desserts. Sweet potatoes are rich in an antioxidant called beta-carotene, which is very effective at raising blood levels of vitamin A. Sweet potatoes are nutritious and delicious and loaded with fiber. Sweet potatoes are most commonly orange but can be found in other colors, such as red, yellow and purple.
Yours in health
