“An apple a day keeps the doctor away.”
Apples are one of my favorite fruits. Well, actually they are my all time favorite fruit. Apples are sweet, versatile, and nutritious!
Apples are also packed with fiber. In the apple above, there are over 5 grams of fiber for just over 100 calories. Apples also have lots of vitamin C. Beware of the sugar though, and remember, everything in moderation! 😉
I eat an apple every single morning. They help me feel alert, and eating an apple with 16 ounces of water in the morning helps my digestive system too.
Of course though, I love cooking with them too! Here are some recipes that I’ve already posted:
Here also are instructions for slicing an apple, which I hope you may find helpful. It’s something I’ve been doing for quite a while, so I was surprised when one day, my sister said, “Wow, how do you cut your apples to look like that?!” So here’s the answer. 😉
How to Slice an Apple
First, quarter the apple.
Here’s the “shaping” part. Start by cutting across, under the stem.
Then, cut down under the core.
So now, it’ll look like this.
Now flip the quarter over, and repeat from the other side.
Then, just meet both sides of the cut and pop out!
There you have it! Now repeat for the other three quarters and you’re all done.
