Your grandma was right!

Eating that apple is good for you!

A Dutch study published in Stroke: Journal of the American Heart Association shows people who eat white fleshed fruits and veggies can cut their risk of stroke in half!

Great news!

So load up on apples, pears, bananas chicory, cucumber, and cauliflower – or any fruit or vegetable with “white” flesh (except potatoes – that is a starch!) These fruits and veggies are high in dietary fiber and a flavonoid called quercetin.
Increasing your intake per day by 25-grams can lower your risk of stroke by 9%!
An average apple is 120 grams – what an easy, and tasty way to do something good for your health!
Keep eating the other-colored fruit and vegetables too. They may provide nutrients to prevent other chronic diseases.
