Here is a way to enjoy apple pie with all the healthy benefits of the apple. The majority of the vitamins, minerals and other nutrients found in apples are actually in the peel.
Apple peels have minerals including calcium, potassium, phosphorus, folate and iron. Calcium and phosphorus is used by our bodies to maintain strong bones and teeth. Potassium promotes proper cell growth and production, also helps to maintain a healthy heart and digestive system. Iron is needed for red blood cells to carry oxygen and nutrients through out your body.
