An Apple A Day…
Much of the fiber in fruit is in the skin, especially in the case of apples, pears, peaches, and nectarines. Eat the whole fruit, skin, and all! Just make sure you wash it well. Get all the goodness of the fruit with the skin.

SKIN-ny Dip
Speaking of Apples, Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year (5766) starts at sunset, October 3, 2005. Apples dipped in honey are eaten to symbolize hope for a “sweet” New Year. Just remember to keep the skin on yours!

L’Shana Tovah – Happy New Year!

Singin’ the Blues
Scientific evidence shows that blueberries are full of phytonutrients (plant compounds with health-promoting properties), especially the skin of blueberries. They contain powerful antioxidants and cancer fighters. Most of the health-promoting pigment is in the skin. Also, keep in mind that the smaller the berry, the more phytonutrients.

Blueberries in pancakes, muffins, cereal, or blended into smoothies are just a few delicious ways to get your healthy fill of the little fruit. So what if they stain your teeth a little.
