They are robust for your handbag, unlike a banana! And they are not messy (except for the V.juicy ones).
The best apples for me at the moment are the jazz variety, ”You can always trust a Jazz apple to be crispy and juicy!”
The Jazz variety first occupied my fruit bowl about year and half ago, i loved the name when i spotted them in Waitrose!
They really do have the best crunch of a Braeburn, with the sweetness of a Pink Lady, and such a distinguished shape.
So look out for them, I have noticed M&S have jumped on the happy jazz apple bandwagon if you don’t have a Waitrose near you :-D
Below is a tool that shows you the nutrition behind apples as well as their “fullness factor”
The further to the top right the fuller you will feel and the more nutritious the food per gram.
It is from a very useful site
I find this invaluable, although I must warn you it can become addictive and before you know it you have spent your entire evening analysing the contents of every cupboard in a scrupulous manner.
So enjoy your apples.
A great mid afternoon energy boost, with the ability to silence any hungry growl is slicing an apple, adding big unrefined oats (Scottish) and your favourite flavour yoghurt. Mix until every bit of apple is covered and enjoy,
Sometimes if you leave it for a couple of minutes, it allows the oats to absorb the moisture and become that little bit softer!
