I was sent this really interesting post earlier today about a compound in apple peels called ursolic acid that works to prevent muscle degradation. Now, the study was done in mice, so take it with a grain of salt, but it may be just one more reason to get an apple each day!
Here are a few ways to enjoy your apples:
1. My daughter loves to slice her apples and spread each slice with nut butter, such as almond or peanut.
2. I love to eat my apples as they are and grab a handful of nuts, like almonds or cashews.
3. Enjoy applesauce made with the peels. You can top with cinnamon and pecans for a twist.
