Desert Spotlight: Apple Pie

The apple pie is special for quite a number of reasons. First, it’s made from fruit, which means it must be a solid source of nutrient for your body. Secondly, apples are really healthy because they are loaded with vitamin c, fiber and antioxidants.

Still on nutritional value, apples are loaded with the flavonoid quercetin. The combination of fiber and quercetin is associated with a reduced risk of stroke and as you already know, apples are heart-healthy and delicious.

Other health benefits of apples include boosting brain health, helping you maintain a healthy weight, lowering the risk of Type 2 Diabetes as well as helping you fight off cancer.
