An Apple a Day…
For about a month now, I’ve been eating an apple a day. This started quite by accident.
One day, I was foraging around in the kitchen and came across an apple. What a great snack. Then, I ate one the next day and the next. Pretty soon, it became a habit.
I don’t eat an apple a day because it is going to keep the doctor away. If all you eat is apples, you are screwed. They are not nearly nutritious enough to sustain you. The average apple is 65 calories and has 0 grams of protein, 0 grams of fat and 17 grams of carbs. Sugar alert! Of course, an apple has fiber – about 3 grams (apple juice doesn’t), so the glycemic index (38) and glycemic load (6) are low. In addition, it’s an apple. It has one ingredient in it…apple. That’s my kind of snack.
Normally, that’s good enough for me to make a snack choice, but there’s more to it with apples. Eating an apple a day is representative of the simple disciplines in life. Those little things that are easy to do, but they are also easy not to do.

By the way, I know I need to get a mic for my camera. The Canon T3 shoots awesome video, but that mic doesn’t cut it in the wind.
