Week 3

Easy Baked Apples with Walnuts and Raisins

Nothing says fall quite like the warm, spiced dessert of baked apples. Packed with fiber, particularly pectin fiber, apples help gut bacteria produce compounds to protect colon cells. Sprinkled with walnuts and raisins, this recipe also contains beneficial omega-3 fatty acids and cancer-protective flavonoids and phenolic acids. Enjoy for dessert or top with yogurt and granola for a sweet, nutritious breakfast.
