Day 1: Apple Picking in Oak Glen, CA

Day 1 of #27DaysOfThanks: Apples

It’s apple season…

and I had the pleasure of spending Halloween Day apple picking in the small orchard town of Oak Glen, CA. I picked organic Granny Smith, Roma Beauty and Red Gold apples! It gives you such a different perspective when you pick the food you eat yourself…it gave me a sense of gratitude and appreciation and made me feel that we take our food for granted at times. I highly recommend this experience to everyone and it would be great for kids too.

We picked apples at Riley at Los Rios Rancho…

We also stopped by a small organic fruit stand called Mom’s Orchard and tasted a bunch of jams, mustards and sauces. My favorites were the Spicy Peanutbutter and the Apple Jam!

Here are some reason to be thankful for apples:

1. They are high in Vitamin C and A which will boost your immunity this time of year.
2. They have fiber and eating one everyday for a snack will keep you feeling satisfied and regular.
3. They can reduce cholesterol and prevent disease by aiding in detoxification.

A great way to get an apple in is to add it to your juice or smoothie!

Here is the Spicy Peanut Butter and Apple Jam Sandwich I made with my pickings from today:
