New Year's Resolution: Eat One Superfood Everyday!!!

New years is the perfect time to give your diet a makeover.

Try to incorporate one superfood in your diet every diet. An apple a day really does keep the doctor away." Apples are loaded with powerful antioxidants, quercetin and catechin, which protect cells from damage - that means,reduced risk of cancer and cardiovascular disease, especially if you eat the skin. The apple peel contains five times more polyphenols than the flesh. Apple skins pack a lot of fiber, too , which may help fight the battle of the bulge and rid your body of harmful toxins.
Try slicing apples and serving them with a spread of nut butter, cinnamon, and a touch of good quality honey. You can also sprinkle with some flax seeds.
