Here’s a quick delicious one for during your detox. It can be a great breakfast or yummy dessert.
I had this a couple of times on my last 14 day cleanse.
Ingredients: (per serving)
- 1 x large green apple (or red if you prefer)
- 6-8 dates
- A dessertspoon each of raisins, cranberries or currants
Simply take one apple, core out the centre and stuff with dates, raisins, cranberries or any other type of dried fruit you like. You can also add some honey or allspice to flavours. Add a dessertspoon of water to the bottom of a sauce pan and steam the apple until soft.
Serve with cinnamon and cream. Delicoius!
Scientific studies have found a connection between apple consumption and reduced cancer risk. More than 77,000 women in the United States in a Nurses Health Study, found those who consumed at least one serving per day of apples had a reduced risk of lung cancer.
Studies have also linked apple intake with reduced risk of cardiovascular disease. Nearly 40,000 women, were surveyed in a Women’s Health Study. They found that women eating an apple a day had a 13% to 22% decrease in cardiovascular disease risk.
