Today’s “Tip Tuesday ” is brought to you by one of my favorite snackable fruits! I find myself reaching for an apple a day to help with my sweet cravings. Yes, this baker girl CAN occasionally pass on the sugary treats!
We are all home more often these days, and with that comes more mindless nibbling . Why not elevate the snacking and take the simple apple to the next level. Sit down, use a “real ” plate, and think a little about your favorite flavors and how they will taste with fresh cut apple slices.
The following list is a great of apple ideas you can utilize as a quick , healthy afternoon pick me up, or as a plate of appetizers while cooking dinner. Think BIG and arrange them on a grazing board for your next party (yes, eventually we will all get back to partying!)
Many of these ideas are kid friendly, too. Bring the whole family around the kitchen table and share your favorites!
Kid friendly apple pairings:
Cheddar cheese and green apple
Yogurt, honey and cinnamon with a red apple

Happy, healthy snacking , foodie friends!
