Apple and Onion Stuffing Muffins:
If your family likes stuffing this is a great way to get the day going. Apples provides many great health benefits. We all remember the saying “An Apple a day keeps the Doctor away” this does have some validity. Apples provide us with protection against Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and even protection from some cancers. Eating apples regularly in our diets can help us improve our heart health and prevent gallstones in some cases.
Bananas have several health benefits as well. A side from their great taste bananas help with increased potassium which controls our muscles including our heart. Bananas prevent muscles spasms which many of us have issues with during the colder months. They also provide the needed minerals to help our heart function more effectively since our hearts are a large muscle. If you are looking for a reason to eat bananas what could be more important than protecting our heart function? In addition to that Bananas provide us with more energy with its natural sugars, potassium, and fiber they keep you fueled and regular.
