Print¬†Friendly 

Description:
The proverb "An apple a day keeps the doctor away.", addressing the health effects of the fruit, dates from 19th century Wales. Well here is a way to keep the kids eating this amazing fruits.
Research suggests that apples may reduce the risk of colon cancer, prostate cancer and lung cancer. Compared to many other fruits and vegetables, apples contain relatively low amounts of vitamin C, but are a rich source of other antioxidant compounds. The fiber content, while less than in most other fruits, helps regulate bowel movements and may thus reduce the risk of colon cancer.


Ingredients:
5 medium apples
5 wooden craft sticks
3/4 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
1 package (14 ounces) caramels, unwrapped
1 tablespoon water


Directions:
Line baking sheet with parchment or wax paper; set aside.
Wash and dry apples; insert wooden sticks into stem ends. Place nuts in shallow dish. Combine caramels and water in small saucepan.
Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until caramels are melted. Dip apples, 1 at a time, into caramel mixture, turning to cover completely. Remove excess caramel mixture by scraping apple bottoms across rim of saucepan. Roll bottom half of apples in walnuts. Place on prepared baking sheet. Refrigerate at least 15 minutes. You can also drizzle some melted chocolate decoratively over apples.
Refrigerate 10 minutes or until chocolate is firm.
Wrap apples individually; store in refrigerator.

Wellness Tip
Low Fat Brownies
Bake sale coming up? Consider modifying your traditional brownie mix recipe a bit. You can omit the oil, double the water, use 2 egg whites in place of each egg, and add 1 tsp vanilla extract. Your brownies will remain moist and chewy; you'll save about 15 grams of fat per tablespoon of oil omitted, and reduce the cholesterol by removing the egg yolks. But don't forget, reduced fat doesn't mean calorie free; portion size still matters.

Raw Green Smoothie
Category: Raw Foods
Description: "Nutrient-rich kale is hidden in this delicious banana smoothie. . . perfect for those of us who have a hard time getting our daily dose of veggies!"

Kale is not only one of the more beautiful cruciferous vegetables, but it also one of the most nutritious. Here are nine reasons to eat kale, and eat it often.
One cup of kale has only 36 calories and zero grams of fat, which makes it a great diet aid. Furthermore, one cup contains nearly 20% of the RDA of dietary fiber, which promotes regular digestion, prevents constipation, lowers blood sugar and curbs overeating. Finally, kale contains the glucosinolate isothiocyanate (ITC) that fights the formation of H. pylori (Helicobacter pylori), a bacterial growth in the stomach lining that can lead to gastric cancer.
