There’s no doubt that apples are good for you. A single apple has all of 70 calories but contains over 3 grams of fiber. Sweet and satisfying, snacking on apples is the perfect way to get healthy.
There are dozens of apple choices in the markets today. Alongside the traditional delicious and Granny Smiths more and more heirloom varieties are available. Below are some of the apples that I use in recipes on the Dr. Gourmet website. Because of their ready availability I have generally used more common varieties because I know that most readers will be able to easily find them in the grocery. Apple Types
Featured Recipe: Apple Cinnamon Bread
This Apple Cinnamon quick bread is a great comfort food. Warm and inviting with the spicy cinnamon aroma, just having this one in the oven makes the house more homey. The loaf will keep well for about 3 - 4 days and it’s best to cut two thin slices and toast them lightly in the oven or toaster oven. Apple Cinnamon Bread

I'm preparing to try your eatTHISdiet and am very excited! However, I do have one question: Will you please define what "fruit" means? I know fruits have different nutritional values and I would like some guidance as to which are best.
