I've realized recently just how much I like apples. They have so much to offer, from the nutritional benefits to versatility! And when they are in season and priced right, they are a great buy!
These are some of the ways we have found to incorporate them into our diet (especially during the sales).
fresh fruit. for a snack, especially with some cheese or popcorn
applesauce. with granola on top, by itself, homemade or store-bought
in baking recipes. very often substituted for oil or butter in our house.
in pancakes, breads, and muffins. adding moisture and nutrition to make a healthy version.
in meals. in very delicious meals like this apple and sausage pie.
baby food. a great starter for any baby learning to eat.
toddler food. as a snack, chopped up, with a side of cheese and nuts. makes a great snack.
in a grilled cheese sandwich. oh so delicious!
for breakfast, lunch, or dinner
in cooking or baking
fun to go apple picking. easy to peel with a fancy peeler. family-friendly. nutritious. it's just that simple.
