Apples to Apples

I have been on an apple kick lately. Since we have been giving Adah "real food" now, I am trying to incorporate a healthy snack that will satisfy the sweet tooth that we both like. I will sometimes pare it with some peanut butter, or laughing cow cheese and crackers. we both enjoy it, and it helps brake up the day so we are not starving by dinner.

I have never really cared about what kinds of apples I buy. Whatever looks good is what I have purchased. But funny about apples, I don't really like red apples. I don't know why, but every time I have one, I am not impressed.

I would usually buy the granny smith green apples, but those can be risky. You want the perfect blend of tart sweet, but sometimes, they are just plain sour. They can also have a weird consistency to them that I don't care for. But, nonetheless I would still buy them until I discovered Pink Lady Apples!

Pink Lady apples are unlike any other apple I have had. They excel where some other kinds of apples lack. They are consistent. You can pretty much guarantee that every pink lady apple you eat will taste just like every pink lady apple you have had before. They are sweet and tangy, crisp, and smooth. They live up to their name with the pink color, and are medium in size. I have not been able to find them at all grocery stores, but they are t most. Give them a try they are absolutely delicious!!!

What kinds of apples to you like?

I don't think I have ever tried a Pink Lady! I will check them out. Never been a fan of Red Delicious either. I normally eat a Fuji apple each morning.

green apples have less sugar so they have less carbs if you're carb-conscious at all.

green apples also have more antifungal properties than red.

My fave is the fuji, but I usually eat granny smith because of the antifungal properties.

I absolutely LOVE Ambrosia apples! They are sweet and crisp...just what an apple should be! Gala and Fuji are a close second and Red Delicious definitely come in last. They seem so blah to me! I lave pairing my apples with laughing cow cheese and crackers too! Its a great, healthy snack.
