Apples are crunchy fruits that provide humans with a lot of nutrients.

Some of the nutrients provided to us by apples are Vitamin C, Vitamin K, and Potassium. The skin of the apple is also a great source of fiber.

Growing up, we've all heard the famous proverb, 'an apple a day keeps the doctor away'.

The proverb actually started in Wales, where it originally went something like, ‘Eat an apple before going to bed, and you’ll keep the doctor from earning his bread’. Communities all across the world have known about the benefits of eating apples, from the Ancient Romans, the Anglo Saxons, and various groups in Southern Asia who practiced Ayurveda.

Since apples don't have a lot of calories, and they hold high quantities of water and fiber, they're good options for those who are considering going on a diet.

They make optimal snacks, and can also be a part of fruit bowls and salads. It's always a good choice to have a variety of fruits in your diet, as that positively affects your digestion and your metabolism rate.

Here's a list of apple quotations for your amusement!
