An apple a day really does help keep the doctor away.

Apples have great health benefits, as I'm sure you've heard, being great weapons against cancer, heart disease, asthma and type II diabetes.

Apples are also filled with super-antioxidants, the amount in one apple is equivalent to about 1500 mg of vitamin C, even though the actual amount of vitamin C in one apple is only about 5.7 mg.

*Apples with the peel on have a far greater antioxidant capacity.

So here's a sweet treat to try using apples....

Wash and core an apple, then brush with a little honey, a sprinkle of walnuts, and a dusting of cinnamon. Bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes. It's a yummy little treat =)
