Get Your Apple a Day
You’ve probably heard that "an apple a day keeps the doctor away." That might not be literally true — but eating fresh, whole apples is sure a step in the right direction!
- Apples are a delicious and perfectly portable snack that’s good anytime, anywhere.
- One small apple is about 80 calories, with no fat, no sodium and no cholesterol.
- Apples are a good source of fiber, which helps reduce cholesterol levels and provides bulk in your digestive system to keep things working smoothly.
- Don’t peel your apples! Almost half of their vitamin C is just under the skin, and there’s a lot of fiber in the skin. And most of an apple’s delicious fragrance is in the skin, too.
No wonder apples are one of the country’s favorite fruits!
Choosing Earthbound Farm organic apples whenever you can lets you step away from pesticide residues in your food (apples are #1 on the Environmental Working Group’s Shopper’s Guide, the list of produce with the most pesticide residues when grown conventionally) and helps support a healthier planet, too. (Not to mention how good organic apples taste!)
