Link to article:  apples as super foods article reading

Ever wonder why they say, “An apple a day keeps the doctor away”?  Its because of antioxidants!!!  Well that’s just one reason.  Read the article above about apples and why they have been a nutritious staple super-food in many diets, and a key success in a healthy regime. Also, take a look at why its not just a crock to focus on eating a diet full of healthy fruits and veggies, with the article Antioxidants in dietary plants.  

I also wanted to give a handout as a little reference guide for sweeteners to avoid and caffeine content in food-stuffs.  Enjoy!  Thanks as always, and be aware and eat with care 🙂
