Apples Are Great for Snacking
Grab an apple for a snack, and you'll be doing your body some good. The core facts:
- About 80 calories per apple
- Completely cholesterol- and fat-free
- An excellent source of dietary fiber, about 5 grams per apple
The skin of the apple has all of the necessary fiber that you get from an apple.
Another apple tip or two: Apples last up to 10 times longer in the refrigerator than at room temperature. If you're storing apples along with other fruits and veggies, put the apples in a plastic bag first; they emit a naturally occurring gas that can make the other items ripen faster than you want.
