I watched a gull eat an apple this morning in the Bed Bath & Beyone parking lot. When I first noticed it, I felt happy that it was eating something healthy. Having lived at the shore virtually my entire life, I've seen many a gulls eating garbage, both literally and figuratively. Then I thought, how sad, because this gull was eating a much healthier breakfast than a good portion of the children in our world. An apple.
I often bring a gigantic bowl of apples to health expos where I have a table to offer people my services. Along with the bowl, I have a poster with an apple in the background of a hundred or so ingredients listed. This is only a partial list. In one apple, there are vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals, many of which are still unnamed and unknown--all of them working together magically to deliver a powerful dose of health to the fortunate being eating it. An apple.
People don't realize that a simple addition of one apple a day, honestly, can improve our health greatly, especially if one is not prone to eating fruits and vegetables regularly. It's a good way to start a day and to start the path toward eating a more healthful diet. 'Tis the season they're at their best--freshly harvested and in a variety of colors, sizes, and flavors. Nature's candy. There's bound to be a least one that fits your tastes. An apple.
Go for it.
