Apple season is here in Ontario and we all know, an apple a day keeps the doctor away. 

Apples are always a good idea; they are nutritious and good for your heart, promote good gut bacteria, bone health and so much more! Apples are also versatile and can be great in a salad, on a dinner plate, in a breakfast bowl or just on their own.
