There’s a good reason for the old adage “an apple a day keeps the doctor away.” In the fall, apples may take center stage in the middle of a sugary pie, but you don’t even have to look skin deep for super-charged nutrition from the apple.

The apple’s skin contains an antioxidant compound called quercetin, calcium, Vitamin C and apparently eating apples is a good way to clean teeth.

Want to add some apples to your diet this fall? Well, nothing is better than the fruit by itself, but apples also go well in walnut-chicken salads, grilled and drizzled with a pungent cheese, or sliced thinly and put into a sandwich. It sounds weird, but the texture is amazing!
