I’ve started two other postings but they stalled and my brain froze. I’m way off my diet goals and have probably gained weight but I need to get this out of my head. I’m small “d” depressed – blue. It’s normal and I recognize it. I also appreciate all of you who will encourage me and support me. But my epiphanette this morning is the Granny Smith apple.
Did you know, that for dieters, the Granny Smith apple is the best. I found that out today listening to Connie Sellecca on Intelligence for Your Health on the radio. They are high in anti-oxidents, fibre and flavinoids. They make us feel full and, as we already know, an apple a day keeps the doctor away. They are also wonderful in the fight against Type 2 Diabetes.
I knew that and my favourite apple is the Granny Smith. This revelation pulled me a wee bit out of blue zone I was in. I’m doing something right. Isn’t it weird how life provides you with knowledge and experience that can help you some where or when you need it. My husband has a 3 pound bag of Spartans and they are his favourite apple. They’re okay but I find them a little bit soft and sweet. The currently popular (chic) apples like Gala and Fuji are way too soft and sweet for my taste. I love the Granny Smith. It’s crisp, tart and so filling. It tastes like an apple and actually makes me feel fuller. I try to have one a day but they aren’t on sale all the time and I am notoriously cheep. Norm says the look like a stomach ache and he won’t eat them. I think he ate way too many unripe apples as a kid. Good, more for me!
So, feeling a little better and back on the plan. I’ve had my breakfast of a one-egg, veggie omelet and am now enjoying my mid-morning snack of a wonderful Granny Smith apple. Thanks for listening. ;D Diane
