Eat an Apple Before You Go Grocery Shopping

We’ve all heard an apple a day keeps the doctor away. But did you know an apple before grocery shopping means you will buy more fruits and vegetables?

Researchers at Cornell University found that people who ate a healthy snack before grocery shopping purchased 25 to 28% more produce than those who ate a cookie or nothing at all before heading to the store.

Take advantage of apple season to incorporate this healthy habit into your lifestyle. Have an apple or other healthy snack before your next trip to the grocery store. Your healthier mindset will have you filling your cart with more fruits and vegetables.

Then tantalize your taste buds by trying some new-to-you apple varieties. Growers and retailers often provide samples, recipes and recommendations for the best snacking, baking and processing varieties. Or buy a collection of apples and conduct your own taste test.

A bit more information:  More than 100 apple varieties are grown commercially in the United States. Of these, only 15 account for 90% of those being grown.
