Recipe: Healthy Snack Apple Slices with Almond Butter

Here’s a healthy snack that’s quick, easy and high in fiber. If you use red apples you get a dose of cancer fighting super antioxidant cell protection from quercitin as well as ursolic acid which promotes normal inflammation control. Both are found in the skin.

Core an organic apple (keep the skin on, that’s where there are precious nutrients), slice  into 1/2 inch rounds and arrange on a plate

Top each slice with  almond butter
