Pacific Rose Apples
Good Monday morning! I want to talk apples again. Come on, they are my obsession.
You know how most people these days get excited when a new smart phone or gadget comes out? Ya, well that's how I get when I discover a new fruit or vegetable I haven't tried! Giddy!
No, I'm not weird, you're weird!
I was recently at our market when I saw a new variety of apple I hadn't seen before: Pacific Rose Apples! They taste like a cross between a Red Delicious and a Honeycrisp, though apparently they are a natural cross of a Gala and a Splendour (some New Zealand variety of apple). Yum!
If you think you don't like a particular fruit or veggie, try a different variety, or try cooking it in new ways. Remember, we were designed to eat plants (as well as meat), and you really can't be healthy without them.
If you need to improve your diet, the easiest way to start is the 1/2 your plate method. Just make every meal 1/2 a plate of veggies/fruit, 1/4 protein, and 1/4 starch. Just don't drench your veggies in high calorie sauces.
Have a great day and go eat some plants!!
