Apples are a miracle food and your grandmother’s old saying, “an apple a day keeps the doctor away,” is sage advice! They are loaded with phytonutrients, antioxidants, and fiber to promote optimal health. Studies have found that apples reduce inflammation in our bodies and cortisol levels in our brain. Apples are a great line of defense against Parkinson’s, MS, Alzheimer’s and dementia. Apples are also super for detoxing the liver, the skin, and killing unwanted bacteria in our digestive tracts (great for sufferers of IBS). Not only are apples a high-fiber, heart-healthy snack, but they also play a starring role in boosting our immune system during the cold and flu season. I recently discovered this recipe from the Medical Medium, Anthony William, a well-reagrded healer. I put my own twist on it! This recipe is easy, healthy and pretty. I serve it either alongside my old faithful recipe for Steak Frites (recipe coming!), or my Lemon Thyme Poulet. Or, for a healthy, warm Winter dessert with a dollop of fresh whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla bean gelato! Bon Appétit!
- 6 Red Apples
- 6 tbsp Honey or Maple Syrup
- 2 tbsp Fresh Lemon Juice
- 6 tsp Cinnamon divided among the six apples
- 6 pats Grass-Fed Salted Butter
In a large mixing bowl, mix together your honey or maple syrup, cinnamon and lemon juice.
Using a sharp knife or mandolin, thinly spice the apples and then bathe in your liquid mixture.
Next, arrange your apple pieces with red skin edge facing up in a circle in a 6 individual oven-proof ramekins. Pour the remaining liquid over the top of each and top with a pat of grassed salted butter.
Bake for 25 minutes until apples are soft with crisp edges. Remove from over and serve warm. As an extra delight, add fresh whipped cream or Vanilla bean gelato.
May our lives reflect the Truth
Hope is real
Healing is possible
Life is a privilege
We exist for a purpose
Grace is available
God has us.
I discovered Anthony William, “The Medical Medium” in my search to help my dear friend fight her battle against colon cancer. The Medical Medium is convinced that what we eat matters to our day-to-day body and soul health. Even more important, is the food we eat when our body is in crisis, or suffering a chronic illness. Simply put, food heals! If you are not feeling your best self, I highly recommend you check out his book and follow him on instagram.
