I’m going to get all Caption Obvious for a sec…k?

An apple a day keeps the doctor away.

But really though.

Apples have so many amazing benefits & I feel like they’re the totally forgotten fruit.

Pretty much people treat them like they’re a basic bitch.

& it’s so WRONG, wrong, wrong. Apples are the furthest thing from basic.

They’re actually kind of insane. Why?

1.) Apples whiten teeth…yup, that’s right. Chewing an apple reduces tooth decay because it lowers the levels of bacteria.

2.) Their peels have “potent anti-growth activities against cancer cells in the liver, colon, and breasts.” Oh, hey.

3.) Decreases ricks of diabetes, Parkinson’s, & Alzheimer’s.

4.) Apples are high in fiber which means you’ll feel full quicker & longer. Meow.

5.) The beautiful, shiny fruit boosts the immune system ( hello, antioxidant quercetin!! ), detoxifies the liver, helps alleviate hemorrhoids ( too much info? What’s new ), & prevents cataracts.

6.) They also help with diarrhea AND constipation.

7.) Want to reduce your cholesterol? Good news: “the soluble fibre found in apples binds with fats in the intestine, which translates into lower cholesterol levels and a healthier you.”

8.) Fun fact: my dad has hiatal hernia & says the trick to keeping it under control is a red, delicious apple at night. He eats one before bed to curb any symptoms.

Ok, let’s get to the good stuff: three ingredient apple pie dip.

So damn good, so damn easy.

I found this recipe on Loni Jane’s Instagram. All you do is let about seven to ten-ish ( depending on how many peeps ) pitted dates soak in filtered water for one hour. After that pour dates into a blender, add two heaping scoops of chia seeds, & a bunch of sprinkles of cinnamon. Blend ( a food processor works best, FYI ). Slice apples ( I like to use different kinds/colors for a lil extra flair ), sprinkle some cinnamon on top of them, & serve. Enjoy your apple pie dip made from nature’s candy: fruit.

Ta-da.

The Skinny Confidential talks diet, fitness, & health.I’m obsessed with making this for my girlfriend’s because it’s super, super filling & that whole ‘hand to mouth’ thing helps curb my serious chips/guac addiction.

What’s your favorite fruit? Maybe I’ll try to make a dip out of it!

P.S. dates are well, kind of everything. I like to use one for sweetening green smoothies. MMMmmm.

A good friend of mine was released from the hospital today after hip surgery. I made this healthy version of “ice cream” for her because who doesn’t love frozen sweets…ESP after the sicko hospital?!

Lately I’ve become obsessed with two-three ingredient recipes.

Whyyyyy? Obvious reasons.

They’re quick + easy. But even more so, there’s not a million ingredients. Smaller recipes contain less cals/sugar/carbs. No one wants to eat something filled with ingredients that they can’t pronounce. Right ; )?

My typical rule of thumb: I try to steer clear of grocery store items that have more than five ingreds. If you don’t know what they are then either look into it ( << you know, Google.com…don’t turn a blind eye to what you’re eating! Be informed! ) or MOVEEEE on down the aisle.

Anyway to make this combine pineapple slices, mint leaves, & pomegranate seeds in a food processor. Freeze for an hour. Add mint + pomegranate seeds for garnish.

Ta da.

Totally a cure for anyone’s sweet tooth ; ).

Love.L
