When early explorers would bring back new fruits and vegetable into Europe they didn't know what to call them. Melons, avocados, cashews, dates, oranges, tomatoes, pineapple, etc. were all called "apple." Since we are all going to be eating a lot of vegetables and fruits on our diets to become healthier I thought this might be a fun name for the group.
Apples have so many health benefits. Apples are a good source of potassium, folic acid, vitamin C and contain traces of B vitamins, iron, magnesium and zinc. Apples aid the digestive system, and may prevent cancer and heart disease. Apples are rich in antioxidants and their consumption has been linked to a reduction in aging-related mental and physical degeneration such as Alzheimer's, wrinkles, arthritis, cataracts, and diabetes. Apples have also been recommended for headaches, bronchial asthma, inflammation of the bladder, anemia, tuberculosis, neuritis, insomnia, strokes, gallbladder stones, etc.
Apples may also help lower blood cholesterol so I'm going to try and eat one apple every day! Apples are a favorite diet food and you can find many popular apple diets. An apple a day might just keep the doctor away!
