Snacking on Apple Became Healthy

An apple a day keeps the doctor away. This statement might not be entirely accurate, but apple is one of the healthiest fruit with a very low glycemic index. In addition, apple contains fructose, which has minimal effect on blood sugar levels. Apples contain multiple other components that slow down the digestion and metabolism of carbs. Apple makes an excellent snack for your mid-meal cravings.

Making Apples Healthier
• You can make a healthy and highly energetic snack from apples by pairing them with proteins (walnuts, dry fruits), fats, and complex carbs (nut butter, greek yoghurts, etc.). This can help your untimely sugar cravings and also serve as an ideal pre-workout snack.
• Prefer having the whole fruit to juice or any other form to keep the fibres and antioxidants intact.
• Smaller portions can be spread across a period to avoid a glucose spike.

Apples are rich in vitamin C, carbs, fibres, and multiple antioxidants. The antioxidants quercetin, phlorizin, and chlorogenic acid in apples slow the insulin response and help regulate blood sugar levels. People with higher blood sugar levels or diabetes can also consume this amazing fruit.
