An apple a day!
I know we've all heard the saying 'An apple a day keeps the doctor away". However, I didn't realise just how true that saying was until I was reading an article the other day about the goodness an apple contains. I drink a fair bit of tea (black and green) and always thought that that was a great source of antioxidants, however an apple contains twice the amount of a cup of tea! Three times the amount of an orange and more than half a punnet of blueberries or a cup of strawberries. So, next time you are at the green grocer, grab a few extra apples.. They are good value - price and health wise (not to mention delicious!).
