Upgrade Your Snack Game!

Upgrade Your Snack Game!Looking to upgrade your boring snack game for your kids at home during social isolation?Try these tummy-filling apple rings! Apples have been the ONE fruit I have been able to consistently find at the grocery stores and they pack a nutritious and delicious punch.I recommend starting with a Granny smith apple as they are slightly lower in sugar and carbs, 22% higher in fiber, and contain 63% more protein than their red apple counterparts.Start by rinsing the apple really well.
