Fall means many things: football, chunky sweaters, root veggies, spicy black bean chili on the stove, cozy fires, holidays, and anything warm and fuzzy. But today we're talking apples.
While they're available year round, apples are in-season during the Fall months, meaning that right now they're crisp, fresh, and a bargain.
And, oh the variety! There are so many tasty varieties available—look for something new and local to try this week.
I love apples in a green smoothie; they provide a ton of fiber, plant nutrients, and a delicious sweet taste. They're also full of pectin, which has been proven to lower cholesterol and prevent cancer.
Combining the health benefits of apples, spinach, and avocados with immune boosting properties of lemon, raw honey, and ginger give you the ultimate flue-preventing and flu-fighting green smoothie.
It's also delicious, and your kids will love it, too.
