Apparently an apple a day does keep the doctor away!
It seems our parents were right. Apples have many health benefits but they need to be eaten as a whole food, with the skin, which gives the most benefits. Apples can help fight cancers, help with weight management, are good for our hearts and our endurance.
Health Benefits of Apples
- The apple peel has compounds that have shown to the slow the growth of cancer cells in the liver, colon and breast. Apples can also help to prevent mouth, oesophagus, lung and stomach cancers.
- When apples are eaten whole they can lower blood fats and prevent changes in your blood sugar.
- The fibre in apples can slow down the build up of cholesterol-rich plaque in our arteries.
- Red apples can help boost your endurance during workouts by making oxygen more available to our lungs.
What an amazing fruit! and thankfully delicious.
Sorry for the delay in blogging but I finally had my baby girl. Leila Rose came into the world March 23rd and so as you can imagine I have been super busy ever since. She is amazing and my toddler Leroy is managing the big change very well so far. Though I do see the challenges ahead and have started reading other blogs and articles on ‘baby bunching’ or ‘juggling two’. Tips from other experienced mothers are always welcomed, as I will embrace anything that makes life easier and suits my family.
Below is an interesting read for others out there who are ‘baby bunching’ or juggling two or more.
