An apple a day, keeps the doctors away!
If you were to get a silver coin for each time you have seen or heard this phrase, how rich would you be?
Well, life isn’t a fairytale so there will be no silver coins but Health is Wealth so technically, eating an apple or more a day does make you rich. Yes, apples are extremely beneficial to your health! They are known to contain antioxidants (disease-fighting compound) and fibre which we all know is a power agent for wellness.
Now, it’s understandable that biting and chewing on apples every day starts to get boring at some point so here are a few fun ways to get your fix.
