      APPLES can be used for much more than just a healthy snack or side item during lunch. Products made from apples, an excellent source of vitamin C and other nutrients, can easily be substituted for butter, sugar and other less healthy products.  

      • Replace butter with apple sauce in baking recipes. This will cut the fat in a recipe by nearly 75 percent. Using apple sauce will create a moist, light cake or brownie batter that is lower in fat and higher in both vitamin C and fiber.
      • Marinate meat or fish in different varieties of apple juice to add extra flavoring without the extra sodium and substantial calories.
      • Reduce the sugar used in many recipes by replacing white sugar with apple juice concentrate. Use 3/4 cup of concentrate for every cup of sugar.
      • Freeze different varieties of apple juice in plastic cups to make frozen treats or in ice cube trays to zest up water and encourage its consumption.
      • Add more fruit and flavor to your diet with apple iced tea. Just replace half the water with apple juice instead.

      I hope these tips encourage you to benefit from them.
