Autumn has arrived! And with the crisp air comes a bounty of beautiful fresh apples. Our friends at HelloFresh are celebrating the harvest all October long by offering savory apple-infused recipes to elevate the fruit beyond pies and cobblers each week. From salads and sauces to meatloaf and pizzas, there are endless ways to incorporate apples into everyday meals for a delicious, seasonal twist on dinner. Plus, these recipes are the perfect way to make the most of your apple-picking haul!
These fall staples pack in loads of nutrients, too—fiber and vitamins abound in crisp apples. According to Rebecca Lewis, HelloFresh’s in-house dietitian, “Apples have approximately 95 calories and include 14% of our daily recommended vitamin C intake. They also contain phytonutrients which can help regulate our blood sugar and antioxidants which help with our heart health. The secret behind the super antioxidant capacity of the apple is its skin – which provides 2-6 times the antioxidant activity of the flesh alone!”
