An apple a day keeps the doctor away, right? We've all hear that, but did you know apples are more than a healthy treat?
First of all, they're incredibly beneficial in waking you up–even more so than caffeine! I myself can actually attest to this, and I'm an enormous caffeine fiend. Another thing is, they're great for your teeth. Really! Despite all that sugary sweetness, apples more or less “brush your teeth” for you! Don't have access to a toothbrush, but have an apple? It'll do the trick.
Whether alcoholic or not, apple cider is a perfect drink, especially in the Fall. If you're feeling adventurous, you can even press your own apples and make your own cider. Of course, if you do decide to make it boozy, be sure to properly and thoroughly sanitize all your equipment. This can't be stressed enough!
What about the amazing benefits of apple cider vinegar? After all, it's the new health craze people are swearing by, but what does apple cider vinegar do? It helps you keep off weight, is beneficial in anti-aging, and even helps by keeping diseases such as cancer, diabetes, and heart disease at bay. Try it in the morning in a glass of water–please don't drink it non-diluted–and make sure it has the “mother” (that is, the sediment) on the bottom!
Overall, what can I say…apples are versatile!
