Today I found myself strangely eating an apple, and a red one at that… I guess because I grew tired of seeing it in the refrigerator and figured why not…
But while eating, I remembered this riddle/meme that was shared on Facebook that made me laugh so hard..
Hahahahahaha… I am still laughing… But in the midst of that laughter I thought to myself, what really are the health benefits of eating apples. From growing up we always hear “an apple a day keeps the Doctor away” but what exactly does the apple do that keeps them away?
So I turned to google to read a little and there it was.. too many sites listing the health benefits of apples for me to be able to keep up. So I just clicked the first site listed which was an article from best health mag… And upon opening and reading I was literally like
But I was amazed to see the benefits that apples really have and the site listed the following as benefits of apples..
