Well, maybe not an apple a day year round but this time of year when apples are fresh picked I can eat at least one apple a day without a problem. And just yesterday I discovered a new apple that I LOVE! In fact right now I am eating my second one for the day and will be going to the store to get more tomorrow.
It’s called SweeTango. What a great name! My son’s reaction after his first bite was “That’s incredible!” I describe it as juicy, crispy and a combination of sweet and tanginess.
How are apples good for diabetes?
Natural chemicals in apples work together with the fiber to help slow the digestion and absorption of the sugars so you get a slower rise in blood sugar. These nutrients also help to lower cholesterol. You can read more about how that works at World’s Healthiest Foods You can also read more about a study where women who ate dried apples had a 23% drop in cholesterol!
