Apples & Nut Butter – The Perfect Fall Snack

October 01, 2015

With the fall season in full swing, many of us are out picking apples! Apples are one of our favorite snacks to pair with our nut butters because they are quick, easy and portable! Plus, they are naturally delicious and loaded with vitamins and minerals! Here are some of the other great reasons why apples are so beneficial!

The top health benefits of apples include:

  • They have about 4g of insoluble fiber per medium apple (that’s 1/6 of your daily requirement!)
  • They are loaded with Vitamin C (helps protect your immune system)
  • They aid in weight loss by satisfying hunger and keeping you full (thank you fiber!)
  • They help lower your risk for heart disease, diabetes and stroke
  • They keep your teeth healthy (If you can’t brush after lunch, crunch on an apple!)

Apples also come in quite a large variety, so there is sure to be one that you will enjoy! Some of the most popular kinds include:

  • Macintosh
  • Cortland
  • Granny Smith
  • Red Delicious
  • Golden Delicious
  • Gala
  • Pink Lady
  • Fuji
  • Empire
  • Jonathan
  • Macoun
  • And MANY, MANY more!

So what do you do once you have selected your favorite apple? You smother it in your favorite flavor peanut butter or almond butter, of course! Together, you will get the perfect balance of protein, carbs and healthy fats! Or, you can even dice one up and toss it into your protein shake!

Share with us how YOU most enjoy using apples?
