Apples are one of the most popular fruits worldwide, and for many great reasons. (Did you know the proverb "An apple a day keeps the doctor away" dates back to the 19th century?) Beyond being inexpensive, easy to pack and eat on the go, apples are a good source of fiber (eat the peel!), and are rich in anti-inflammatory antioxidants, Vitamin C, potassium, phosphorus, and calcium, which serve important roles in keeping the body healthy.
Relationships are great. But sometimes it's hard to keep up with healthy habits when emotions are involved.
We were lucky enough to sit down with dietitian Jessica Katz, who answered some hard-hitting relationship-nutrition questions. Like: How can you trick your significant other into eating healthily? Is there a way to protect your heart with food? What steps should be taken to upstage a frenemy?

So how do you incorporate more fiber into your holiday parties without sacrificing taste? Follow these tips to a healthier holiday party filled with high fiber food!
