Football season has begun, and fall is in the air. Fall is the worst time of year for my allergies, and yesterday they attacked with a vengence. Whenever I feel bad, I begin to think of ways to live a healthier life.
Fall is also apple season. Apples offer us about 5 grams of fiber which helps lower our cholesterol. Some studies show that apples can help us fight colds, lower our weight, increase our metabolism, and prevent some cancers. They are full of antioxicants and only contain about 100 calories.
I think I'm going to head out to the grocery and stock up on a bunch of apples.
