Once the air starts getting crisp and the leaves start falling, it’s a sure sign that autumn is on its way. And what fruits are more synonymous with autumn than apples?
You might be most familiar using apples for those fall-centric baked goods like apple pie and apple crumbles. But apples are some of the most nutritious fruit favorites out there, so they’re perfect additions to any healthy meal prep plan!
Let’s talk all about apples, their health benefits, and all the different ways that you can include them in your meal prep plan every single day this fall.
You know the old saying: an apple a day keeps the doctor away!
As it turns out, it’s more than just a catchy saying. The impressive nutrition profile of fresh apples makes them a great dietary staple, no matter what time of the year it is.
Here are some of the delicious nutrients that you can find in apples:
While baked treats like apple pies and caramel apples tend to be the first thing you think about when you consider apples in the fall, they aren’t exactly the most nutritious options. Luckily, there are plenty of healthier alternatives for those apples that can fit right in to your healthy meal prep plan.
You can always just slip an apple or two into your lunchbox and have an instant snack whenever the craving strikes. However, there are also plenty of other creative ways to incorporate these in-season treats into your breakfast, lunch, dinner, and anywhere in between.
The texture and flavor of apples are incredibly versatile, so the options for adding apples into your meal prep are virtually endless and limited only by your imagination!
Don’t let the spoils of your apple-picking trips go to waste this year! With a little bit of creativity (and a hint of a sweet tooth) you can find ways to incorporate this fall favorite into your healthy meal prep for the entire season.
