Healthy Eating Tips -- It is Apple Season Again!

Since you shouldn't be eating any sugar, HFCS or artificial sweeteners... What's left?

Fruit! And which fruit do you think is very healthy and in season right now? (This was a retorical question you know...)

Apples of course! And it should be in your diet... And if you live in one of the three top apple picking regions in the United States -- Michigan, Massachusetts, and Washington State... talk about a bonanza...

So enjoy some of the many varieties of apples... Pink Lady, Gravenstien, Honeycrisp (my absolute favorite), Jonagold, Fuji, Gala, Northern Spy, Fortune, and Cameo apples, as well as the better known Red Delicious and Golden Delicious.

And here is a tip for those who love apple festivals and going to apple farms to pick their own apples... visit for a list.

There is something to the old phrase... an apple a day keeps the doctor away... your great, great grandmother knew what she was talkin' about! :)
