I take this old mantra to heart every morning. Thus, a very typical breakfast for me consists of a raw apple, pure and simple. I always choose organic, so I feel safe about eating the fiber-dense skin. Sometimes I bite right into my selection. But usually, I opt to cut it into thin slices, just for ease of eating. On the rare, but joyful occasion, I might even make fresh apple juice! But my budget doesn't always allow for this kind of fun, except when my neighbors share their seasonal harvest with me in Autumn.
The variety pictured here is Fuji. I like Fuji. But I enjoy Gala and Golden Delicious, as well. And I'd pick a sweet apple over a sour apple any day. That's just me. But no matter which type you choose, all apples appear to be good sources of Vitamin C, fiber, low calories, and lots of pure water content.
I like starting out my day with an apple. I feel full for hours and well nourished. And for those of you who are also interested in proper food combining, it's nice to know that the fruit is digested cleanly, on an empty stomach. The apple is my regular breakfast choice, and I wouldn't have it any other way!
