Today's Blogging A to Z Challenge, with my theme of "A Few of My Favorite Things",  is all about the letter "A".

I love apples. Especially red delicious apples. I have one every day for breakfast and usually one in the afternoon for a snack.

                                              Fun Facts:

The old saying "an apple a day, keeps the doctor away" comes from am old English adage, "To eat an apple before going to bed, will make the doctor beg his bread."

The science of apple growing is called pomology.

Apples are fat, sodium, and cholesterol free.

A medium apples is about 80 calories.

The largest apple picked weighed three pounds.

  7. I like apples. Especially when they're baked in a pie and served with custard. Still only 80 calories, right?

  13. I'd be interested in results from a study of whether or not it really is best to eat an apple before bed, of if you can eat them at any time of day to keep that doc away :)
