We are all talking about health at this time of year. Registered dietician Kelly Springer says the apple is the picture of health. It’s naturally fat free, cholesterol free, it’s a great source of fiber and it is only 130 calories. An apple really provides you with nutrition that is so good for your body. She shows the apple being paired with cheese. Pairing this fiber rich source from an apple with a protein source is just one the simple little tips can really truly improve your health.
Why is the apple and cheese paring so good? Kelly Springer says first of all, it is loaded with nutrition. The fiber in the apple helps to maintain sugar levels and so that means you are not going to go flying up and crashing down and having those cravings, plus when you pair it with a protein source it stabilizes it out more. Fiber comes from fruits like apples and vegetables and whole grains and then you can get wonderful protein sources like turkey slices, nuts and cheese. Kelly shows a drink made from apple cider and a little seltzer and garnished with an apple slice.
