{The Perfect Food}

If I had to pick my favorite single food item, it might very well be the apple.  Plentiful, versatile and downright delicious!  Just don't eat the seeds; they are {slightly} poisonous.

Beautiful also ~ don't you think?

I make a point to eat at least one every day.  I'm not sure there is scientific proof that they keep the doctor away, but it works for me. 

I like to find ways to prepare and serve them to my family; ways that they don't necessarily feel that I am forcing my favored diet of fruit and vegetables on them all the time.  The mister in particular craves all things sweet, so it can be a challenge to make them appeal to him in ways other than covering them in sugar and putting them in a pie crust. 

I succeeded this weekend, though!  I willingly make pancakes on demand now that I have discovered a mix, Krusteaz brand Buttermilk, that is heart healthy and cholesterol free.  Add diced apples and Voila!  A win-win.

Covered with warmed pure maple syrup for some natural sweetness, these will fast become a new family favorite.

What do you like to do with apples?  I would love to hear!

xoxo, Anita
