An Apple A Day Keeps The Doctor Away


apple caramel sandwichApple makes for one of the world’s healthiest foods. It’s rich in Carbohydrates and has almost no traces of fats. The carbohydrates found in apple are mainly monosaccharides and disaccharides which are very easily absorbed into our body. Hence a glass of fresh apple juice every morning will keep you energized through the day while keeping you skinny.

 

The soluble fibre, Pectin, found in apple binds with the intestinal fats and reduces the cholesterol level of our body, which in turn promises a healthier heart and therefore reduces the chances of heart stroke.

 

It prevents you from all types of cancers including liver and breast cancer. Apples also help reduce the risk of diabetes. According to a recently carried out experiment; women who ate apples everyday were 28% less prone to type-2 diabetes, which must I mention cannot be cured. All thanks to the soluble fibre found in apples, it keeps the blood sugar level of our body in control.

No problem at all. I simply suggest you to try the recipes below, they literally yum the apples up for you to enjoy.
