"An apple a day keeps the doctor away." Nearly everyone is familiar with this old adage, and it turns out there is some truth to it.

Apples are full of pectin (a soluble fiber that lowers blood pressure and glucose levels), boron (a nutrient that supports strong bones and a healthy brain), quercetin (a flavonoid that seems to reduce certain cancer risks), and phytonutrients (which help reduce the risk of heart disease, diabetes, and asthma).

Autumn is the peak of apple season. Whether you prefer to pick your own or buy yours from the grocery store, we've got a bushel of delicious recipes and fun crafts for you to try this season!
