The often used adage ‘an apple a day keeps the doctor away’ is true, even the CSIRO have reported on the healing advantages of the conventional apple.
That’s why today I want to give you some of my favourite recipes to get you started eating apples on a daily basis.
Gingered Up Apples
This recipe combines the taste sensations of apple and ginger, both which are very good medicines. Take one apple and remove the core. Place on a cooking dish and half fill with ginger beer. Cook in the oven until it’s how you like it, shorter for a little hard and longer for soft. Remove from oven and add low calorie or joule custard. Fantastic!
The apple is outstanding in assisting the bowel to work optimally. The bowel may be constipated or too active with bouts of diarrhoea. Of course, it is essential that a qualified healthcare professional is consulted to ensure if the bowel doesn’t require closer attention.
Eat raw grated apples on a daily basis for constipation and cooked apples for diarrhoea. Start with one and build up to three a day until the bowel is settled. In the case of diarrhoea, add the juice of half a lemon to one grated apple, this can help balance the bowel.
Finely slice an apple and leave the peel on. Place the slices of apple on a baking tray in an oven set to low or about 100°C and leave the door open. Allow the apple to dry until crisp. If you have a dehydrator, then that can be used. Store the dry apple chips in an airtight jar and use as required. Place a few slices in a cup and cover with boiling water. Place a lid on and allow to infuse for 10-15 minutes. Then drink.
There is no excuse not to have a few apples a day. You are only limited by your imagination. Start collecting as many recipes as you can that involve apples; fresh, juiced, pulped, mashed, blended, chopped. No matter what way you have them, just have them. Every cell of your body will appreciate it, providing you with a sense of well-being.
