“If you’re not hungry enough to eat an apple, then you’re probably not hungry.”
—Michael Pollan, Harvard University Professor
I eat an apple every morning as part of my breakfast routine. Honeycrisp and Jazz are two of my favorite varieties.
It is a bit strange to me that I rarely eat apples any other time of day. Perhaps because I am literally breaking my fast from my last meal or snack, 10-12 hours earlier.
