healthy snack idea: Honeycrisp apples

25 Nov

This is the apple season, and I can get Honeycrisps again!

If you’ve never had a Honeycrisp apple, run–don’t walk–to your car and go to the nearest grocery store and GET ONE. They are the best apples. They’re only available in the fall, though. (Right now, Costco even has them!)

They make an excellent snack, especially paired with some kind of protein. A few ideas:

* slice them and dip in natural peanut butter
* eat them with a slice of reduced-fat cheddar cheese or mozzarella cheese
* cut them up and serve as a side dish with dinner
* fancy-schmancy: arrange, sliced, on a plate. Drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with finely shredded Gruyere. Grind some fresh pepper on top. (Thanks, Jaleo restaurant, for this one!)

Or, if you’re feeling decadent, there’s always caramel.
