When in season, it seems a shame not to eat an apple a day. Recent studies show that daily apples can help lower LDL cholesterol levels and help with weight loss, too. Even though they add calories to your day (a medium apple is about 100 calories), apples help keep you full. The antioxidant quercetin helps to regulate blood sugar levels too.
We're fans of biting into a whole apple or, after slicing it, covering it with almond butter. Whatever you do, eat the skin; the vitamin C content resides just under it. Try a baked apple for a warming, healthful dessert.
