The last post from @momnutrition before signing off for the night! Apples and peanut butter are like peas to carrots, am I right?! If you’re looking for the perfect post dinner, pre-bedtime snack [in case you haven’t noticed we are big snackers in our house], then give this one a try! Slice your favorite Michigan apple, drizzle with warm peanut butter, and top with your favorite cereal. Nut allergies in your house? Drizzle with yogurt or honey! My kids would vote for both… don’t tell them I’m giving you options 😉
DYK you can make your own applesauce in the microwave? To make the applesauce, core and chop 2-3 Michigan apples into ½ inch chunks. Place in a microwaveable safe bowl, cover, and cook on high for 10 minutes. Stir and cook for an additional 5 minutes. Mash and eat as-is, or add this unsweetened version to recipes like these cinnamon applesauce muffins! Recipe link to muffins below.
When I think of healthy snacking, a Michigan apple always comes to mind. In fact, my boys wake up from their afternoon naps knowing Mom is going to be serving a sliced apple with some kind of protein source. My formula for a healthy snack [whether you need one during the workday, before an athletic event, or post-toddler nap], is always fiber + fruit + protein. You could swap a veggie in there too, but we are talking fruit with apples! Here are a few of our favorite snacking combos. Do you have anything to add to the list?! (Photo credit: @momnutrition).
Katie here again [@MomNutrition]. I’m a firm believer that one cannot have too many slow cooker recipes. Especially when that slow cooker recipe involves lean protein, fiber, AND disease fighting antioxidants. That’s exactly what you’re getting with this slow cooker pork chops, apples, and onions. Spoiler alert: it takes 10 minutes to prep and you can use ANY Michigan apple variety you might have on hand!

Good morning @MichiganApples community! Katie here from @MomNutrition. I’m a registered dietitian and Mom to 3 Michigan apple-loving kiddos located in the Metro Detroit area. I’m thrilled to be sharing some of my family’s favorite Michigan apple recipes during today’s Instagram takeover! What you might not know is March is known as National Nutrition Month, and Michigan apples are one of the most nutritious foods you can feed your family. Want to know my favorite apple nutrition fact? Recent studies show apples may help improve memory. And as a busy Mom of 3, I need all the help I can get when it comes to remembering the in’s and out’s of our day! And what better way to get your brain and body moving in the morning with these overnight apple cinnamon oats made in your slow cooker! You can snag the recipe in the comments below. Who else is enjoying a Michigan apple with their breakfast?! . . . . . . . . . . . . #apples #breakfast #overnightoats #healthy #recipe #food #foodpic #healthyeats #healthyeating #healthyfood #yummy

Shari Says: “Remember that adding a high fiber, low calorie, piece of whole fruit, like an apple to your meal helps you feel satisfied” #NationalNutritionMonth #MIapples
Prepping for meals ahead of time is a surefire way to guarantee you eat healthy, even when you’re in a hurry.
