Microwaved Apples with Cinnamon - 17 Day Diet Friendly


Being on the 17 Day Diet hasn't been easy for two reasons.  One, I love sweets!  Two, I love food in general.  I have been dying for something sweet and nothing was working to curb that craving.  That is until now. I can't believe how good this tastes and how healthy it is at the same time.  It tastes like apple pie.  That is without the sugar, butter and crust.  Okay, it doesn't exactly taste like apple pie but close enough and I can eat it everyday.  All you do is take an apple (I used Red Delicious), slice it, sprinkle with cinnamon and microwave for 1 1/2 - 2 minutes.  I like mine mushy so I nuked the heck out of it.  Not only is the apple good for you but cinnamon has great health benefits of reducing fasting blood glucose, triglycerides, LDL cholesterol and total cholesterol.  Gonna love it!
