A few months ago I bought myself a bag of Granny Smith apples from the grocery store. I ate one every day for 3 days. For some reason I didn’t eat one the next two days or so, but then over the weekend I was craving another apple. I went to my bag of apples anticipating my delicious treat only to find that they weren’t as firm as they were at the beginning of the week. Disappointed I cut them in half hoping to eat at least some. And what did I find?? MUSHINESS! Yuck!
So I decided to order myself a #10 can of Granny Smith apples from Thrive
. I realized it was the perfect snack for at work and that can lasted a month in a half! Every time I felt like I needed a pick me up, I would reach for some apples. So good, tart and refreshing. I probably ate half an apple a day. And the best part they will last with no mushiness!!
