Crunchy Waldorf Salad

We love all kinds of apples, and if you’ve read our other posts, you probably know that apples are the one food we’ve had practically daily since we were in high school.

However, we may start working some more Granny Smiths back in our lives as some research shows that Granny Smith may be the best for stomach health thanks to their high amount of non-digestible compounds, including dietary fiber and polyphenols.Since the fiber and polyphenols arrive in the colon undigested, once there, they are fermented by bacteria in the colon, which benefits the growth of friendly bacteria in the gut.
