An Apple a day keeps the doctor away.

Have you heard the saying "an Apple a day will keep the doctor away?" Well, an apple alone may not be enough to keep the doctor away, but it certainly can help. Apples are a delicious, low calorie, high fiber addition to any diet. When most people think about eating an apple they imagine a large, vibrant red delicious apple, the Classic American snacking apple. However, there are more than 2,500 varieties of apples grown in the US and 7,500 varieties of apples grown throughout the world. Some of the most delicious apples are the ones eaten immediately after being picked from an apple tree. Once washed, it's a good idea to eat an apple with it's skin intact. Just beneath the skin is the greatest concentration of Vitamin C and the skin increases the amount of fiber offerred by the apple. You can't get bored eating apples because there are so many varieties that range sweet to tart, and from soft to smooth to crisp and crunchy. No matter what your taste buds you are sure to find one that pleases your taste buds. So go explore in your local store or near-by market and enjoy an apple today!
