Kick start your day with a good breakfast

Breakfast RX: An Apple A Day

on September 9, 2013

Best of luck to the NYC kids who start public school today.

Exciting days ahead.

Exciting days ahead.

This week, in their honor, I’m working with apples. I always share a cold, crisp one with Gracie under the assumption that an apple a day keeps doctors and vets away.

Today, I grilled a Smucker’s natural peanut butter-and-apple sandwich on whole wheat bread on the stovetop.

I’ve tried the Elvis special with banana and that’s way too rich for me.  Both fruits are good for you, of course, but according to this handy nutrient chart, apples have fewer calories, more fiber, more calcium, and more Vitamin A.  Galas provide just the right sweet-savory burst in every bite.

The heat is on!
