Mini Apple Pies

My Grandpa’s funeral was on Sunday and it was a very nice Sunday. There were many tears, but mostly from laughter. My grandpa was a pretty funny guy and surrounded himself with pretty funny people. The memorial afterward was filled with delicious foods. One of my favorite desserts was the mini apple pies. Not only were they the cutest things I’ve ever seen, but the best apple pie I’ve ever tasted. I always think of Thanksgiving when I think of apple pie, but now I will remember the time I ate mini pies with Bonnie Hunt as she told me how I should pursue acting. The miniature pies looked difficult to make but if you’re ever looking for a challenge, go get creative. Comment below if you’ve ever had mini apple pies and if you’ve ever made them please share your recipe! If you don’t like pie, comment your thoughts on Jumanji or Cheaper By the Dozen, two movies I love that Bonnie Hunt played large roles in.

Snackalack

I’ve been trying to eat somewhat healthy as summer is approaching. My mom eats very healthy and drinks special juices daily but tends to make me food for football players. Considering I have two big brothers, I grew up with their diets and am known to be able to inhale large amounts of food. My boyfriends family calls me “big gurl”. For an after school snack my mom made me apples, cheese, and almonds. I ate all the cheese and apples and then slowly ate the almonds until I was in almond overdose. When I want to eat but I’m not hungry, I eat raw almonds because they fill me up quickly and are not addicting. Raw almonds are filled with protein and essential vitamins. If you don’t like almonds plain, throw slivered almonds into a salad or even a smoothie. Be cautious, don’t go nutty with the nuts if you’re calorie counting because they are high in calories!

Does an Apple a Day REALLY Keep the Doctor Away?

I love apples, they are great in desserts, juices, with peanut butter, cinnamon, or just alone! Studies show apples prevent cancer, tooth decay, and heart diseases. Apple has substances called phytonutrients, and these phytonutrients prevents neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinsonism.  Many people don’t know how good apples are for you, they may be high in sugar but they are low in calories  and loaded with vitamins. Apples are a delicious way to intake your daily dose of essential vitamins. You will be able to get the benefits of these properties individually with other fruits, but an apple combines everything and makes it simpler. The juice of the apples has properties that can kill up to 80% of bacteria. So there you have it, an apple a day also keeps the dentist away! Eating apples is part of balanced and healthy diet than will increase your longevity, so why not have an apple a day.

Here are nine reasons to eat an apple a day!

If you don’t like plain apples, here are recipes to incorporate them in!
