A is for Apple

Monday, August 9, 2010


Red berries against the blue This weekend I was enjoying watching the sky fill with golden and pink streaks as the sun began to set. What made it even better is that I was talking to my dear friend Icy and catching up on news. I love when I get a chance to touch base with her. Such a perfect ending to a beautiful day. My picture, on the other hand, is not perfect, but I like it, so I saved it.

Ive's Tues
:-) I told you I like the picture! I took more pictures of fruit and vegetables at Ives Country Markets and want to share some good information with you about apples. This is just a fraction of the information found in the article Apples: The Wonder Fruit.  You can find over a dozen reasons to eat apples daily there.
I’ll share just a few:

  • Apples contain Quercitin which has been isolated and sold in health food stores because of its amazing abilities. 
  • It is a powerful anti-histamine, 
  • Anti-inflammatory, 
  • A wonderful diet aid, 
  • Is also quite useful in relieving allergies and asthma.  
  • A daily apple a day is thought to reduce the risk of lung cancer by half! 
If you ate your apple today you get an A!

Now grab a juicy red apple and join us for Ruby Tuesday. Have a blessed week.

Oh I am looking forward to Apple picking season here in Maine. I love apples too. It is my lunch-saver when I am too lazy to make lunch for myself. Thanks for the info on the apples too.

I love apples too, my favorites are Fuji, and Johnathan, I think that are what they called..

Sorry Judy, your picture turned out blurry because you were busy talking to me :-)

Ruthi, enjoy those apples! They are so good for you.

Icy, I love the picture. It makes me think of a design for fabric. It was the sky I was taking and the tree was actually dark until the camera flashed then I saw the choke cherries (?). I will always remember how I was talking to you and in awe of the sky. You both make me feel younger. :-) Take care & God bless!

Great fruity picture with some helpful information to boot! Makes me glad I give my kids apples regularly. My oldest won't eat them though, which is a pity.

Thanks for the notes on apple's benefits. Good to keep in mind the list. Your mosaic is yummy.

Anne, I'm glad you give your children apples. They come in so many varieties your oldest should be able to find one they would like. For example I don't like Washington because they are softer and sweeter. I like a tarter apple like a Macintosh. Those are crunchy too. Yum! Braeburns have properties in them to protect us from harmful UV rays.

Thanks, Amanda. You are welcome.

I love apples and always look forward to the local fall crop. My absolute favorite is the Honey Crisp. I see from your comments Judy that you prefer the tart apples but if you ever feel like a sweeter apple try the Honey Crisp.

Judy, I can't recall seeing those sold locally. In the fall we have a larger selection so I will have to look.
