I’m craving toasty comfort food and snacks. I’m also doing my best to eat whole, healthy foods and stick to my budget. I'm human and I crave a bit of sweetness every now and then. Low in calories, high in fiber, loaded with crunch and flavor, apples are one of my favorite comfort foods. Personally, I tend to gravitate towards Fuji and Pink Lady apples.
One of my favorite treats (that tastes decadent but isn’t), and that I make when I’m craving a little sweet comfort, is roasted apples.
