Apples are one of the most versatile fruits. They can be a snack, side, salad or wholesome dessert. There are over 8,000 types throughout the world and said to be eaten as far back as 6500 BCE. Apples provide a good source of dietary fiber, specifically soluble fiber, which makes it a heart healthy choice. They also contain antioxidant phytochemicals which help reduce inflammation and prevent chronic disease. Apples are a delicious addition to breakfast, lunch or dinner.
