An apple a day…

An apple a day…Keeps the doctor away. 

 Apples apples apples may help reduce the risk of cancer, cardiovascular disease and diabetes. Since we were kids we were constantly told that Apples were one of the healthiest foods a person can eat. And it wasn’t too far off the truth, they are little pipped wonders 😁 They are high in fiber and vitamin C, and they are also low in calories, have only a trace of sodium, and no fat or cholesterol.

This old proverb stretches as far back as the 19th century Wales according to Caroline Taggart, author of β€œAn Apple a Day: Old-Fashioned Proverbs and Why They Still Work.” The original phrase, Taggart said, was, β€˜β€˜Eat an apple on going to bed, and you’ll keep the doctor from earning his bread.” In the 19th century and early 20th, the phrase evolved to β€œan apple a day, no doctor to pay” and β€œan apple a days sends the doctor away,” while the phrasing now commonly used was first recorded in 1922.

 

They have also been grown for thousands of years in Asia and Europe, and were brought to North America by European colonists. 

Apples have religious and mythological significance in many cultures, including Norse, Christian and my favourite Greek traditions. But for now let us juice and drink πŸ˜ŠπŸ™ŒπŸ‘ŒπŸŒΏπŸ‘
