Healthy Baked Apple Recipe

My Post-Workout Snack: Baked Apple

I go to the gym pretty late on most days so I usually eat dinner before I work out. And on those nights where I'm especially famished after my workout, I reach for an apple to satisfy my hunger. Because an apple contains about 10 percent of the RDA for fiber, it keeps me feeling full and satisfied, but having the same thing every night can get pretty boring. To mix things up, I've been baking my apples — it's a comforting Winter snack that has the added bonus of feeling like an indulgent dessert. 

I don't follow a strict recipe for baked apples, which is a testament to how easy this dish is to make. I either core or slice an apple in half and then bake it at 350° F for about 20 minutes. Depending on my mood, I'll add either nuts and a touch of Earth Balance, a drizzle of honey or maple, or some dried cranberries or cherries — a little cinnamon, nutmeg, or brown sugar is also a nice touch.

Don't forget that it's healthy recipe week in our Get Fit For 2011 challenge and giveaway. Be sure to post your fave healthy recipe in our Get Fit group to enter our weekly giveaway of a $100 Nike gift card and a chance to win our grand prize — a four-day fitness boot camp in LA!
