ONE A DAY Did you know that Cape-grown Granny Smith apples are a superfood?
COMPARE FARE One apple contains the same amount of fibre as seven bananas and you’re looking at 210kJ per 100g – that’s the same as 100g of low fat milk.
NUMBER CRUNCH You’ll get 6mg of calcium, 107mg of potassium and 4,6mg of vitamin C per 100g of apple. Keep eating this fruit and you’ll help your body to develop resistance to infections and eliminate free radicals. Apples are also a great source of B-complex vitamins, which help with metabolism.
SWEET THING Watching your sugar intake? Replace pudding with baked apples. Simply wash, peel and core two apples and place them in a baking dish with a handful of raisins in each hole. Pour 2 tbsp of apple juice over them and bake at 180°C for 40 minutes.
