Eat Your Colors - Pink

An Apple a Day...

Most people have heard the old saying, "An apple a day keeps the doctor away." This old saying has its basis in truth. Read further to find out why!

Pink Lady apples are slightly tart and very sweet. They are crisp with a thin, pink-red skin and white insides. Is your mouth watering yet? 

-One Pink Lady apple provides 195 milligrams of potassium and 4 grams of fiber.
-Pink Ladies give us 12% of the daily recommended amount of Vitamin C.
-Pink Ladies provide 2% of the daily recommended amount of both iron and Vitamin A.
-Pink Ladies are packed with anti-oxidants that prevent and fight cancer.
Fun fact: Did you know that eating an apple triggers saliva flow, which decreases the amount of bacteria that causes cavities? So maybe eating an apple a day would keep the dentist away, too! :)

Pink Lady apples make a great snack on a busy day and are wonderful for breakfast spread with peanut butter and covered with honey and cinnamon!
