Apples contain so many health benefits, which is why there is the common phrase ‘an apple a day keeps the doctor away.’ We also know that an increase in proteins can benefit our mood, weight management, and energy levels. So we thought we would create something that tastes super yummy while having a variety of advantages for your overall health.
Meet — our Protein Apple Muffin with a crumb cake topping that truly packs the umami punch!
It is on PROMO for the month of June and you can find it at the cafe!
Feel free to have it as is or take it home and dress it up with a little dab of our ghee or protein peanut butter to get a bit of extra protein in every bite! We love it on its own and it has become our favorite afternoon nosh or having it as a quick treat before or after a workout!
In light of our newest creation, we wanted to share five fun facts about apples that you may not know:
- Did you know that there are over 7,500 known apple varieties grown around the world? From the crisp and juicy Honeycrisp to the tangy and tart Granny Smith, each variety has its own unique flavor and texture. With such a wide range of options, there’s an apple for every taste preference.
- Contrary to popular belief, apples float in water. This is because they contain about 25% air, which helps them stay afloat. So the next time you’re at the pool or beach, you can try the apple float test and see for yourself!
- Apples are not only good for your taste buds but also for your teeth. Chewing apples stimulates the production of saliva in your mouth, which helps reduce tooth decay by lowering the levels of bacteria and preventing plaque buildup. So, enjoying an apple can be a natural way to maintain your oral health.
- Have you ever wondered why apples turn brown when cut or bruised? This is due to a process called enzymatic browning. When the cells of an apple are damaged, an enzyme called polyphenol oxidase reacts with oxygen in the air, resulting in the brown color. To slow down this browning process, you can sprinkle lemon juice on the cut apple, as the acidity helps prevent oxidation.
- An interesting fact about apples is that they are part of the rose family. That’s right, apples are related to roses, along with other fruits such as pears and cherries. Next time you bite into a juicy apple, you can appreciate the connection it has with these beautiful flowers.
