This morning I woke up freezing! I had to turn the AC off and we’re barely out of August. Here in the south though, we get colder faster. Although I have a feeling this is going to be a very cold winter. Yuk! Alas, I digress. As fall approaches, I can feel the cool air. I marvel at the beautiful changes this season brings. Each tree displays its own beautiful array of colors that leave me yearning for more beautiful scenery. We enjoy partaking in fall activity fun as a family – cornfield mazes, pumpkin festivals, hay rides and the warm ciders and spice drinks. 

I also enjoy apples during this time of year. I know I have been on an apple kick lately, but ’tis the season right? Last week I shared how to make apple cinnamon pull apart bread. Tuesday I shared a recipe for making applesauce in the instant pot. I also have several apple cider recipes on here as well!

Apples are good for you. According to my husband, when he would spend months out in the field while serving in the Army, he called apples “nature’s toothbrush.” I just let it go. I’m sure you’ve heard of an old Welsh proverb that says, “An Apple A Day Keeps The Dr Away.” Apples truly are one of the most consumed fruits in the world and many times are considered a miracle food. According to Medical News Today, there are several benefits from apples. Here are a few- 

  1. Improves Neurological Health
  2. Helps to prevent dementia- I did not know this! 
  3. Can reduce the risk of stroke
  4. Helps to lower bad cholesterol
  5. Helps reduce the risk of diabetes
  6. Helps control obesity
