My favorite apple, the crispy, juicy Fuji apple is packed with fiber, contains vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, and only has a small number of calories. They’re easy to find, affordable, convenient, are a real food and taste delicious. They’re perfect!
One small Fuji apple has about 100 calories and is a fiber powerhouse. Since fiber does so much for our bodies, especially our digestion, I try to eat an apple every day.
Each apple provides a variety of B vitamins, vitamin C and vitamin A, which are all good for your brain. Then there’s the minerals that are good for your heart and your immune system. Fuji’s also have a high concentration of bioflavonoids, quercetin and pectin, great cleansing properties and are essential for your overall health.
As the saying goes, “An apple a day keeps the doctor away!”
Apples in general are so versatile, you can eat them raw, bake with them, cook with them or make them into applesauce, apple butter or apple cider or even dry them. They’re wonderful in smoothies, in cakes, muffins, crisps, cobblers and cookies, dipped in almond or peanut butter, in a fruit salad and, of course, in the classic apple pie. They’re one of God’s gifts to us.
