We have a beautiful apple tree in our backyard that provides us with more apples than we know what to do with come Fall. Yesterday, my 5 year old and I went out to pick some and after getting a nice basket full I asked her what we should make…we contemplated as she ate one. We debated between an apple, apple chips, apple sauce, apple muffins or apple butter. She decided that we should make apple fries with our spiralizer. So we tried all three plates on the spiralizer and decided that each is great in it’s own way. We ended up with some very nice thin pieces of apples and two different thicknesses of spiral fries. Once we spiraled all of apples we spread them out on a baking sheet and sprinkled them with cinnamon. I forgot to put parchment paper down which would have been very smart, next time! We baked the thinly sliced apples for 2 hours and the spirals for 3 hours. In the end we had a delicious after school snack for all the kids. If you haven’t guessed, I’ll probably be posting some healthy ways to use apples over the next couple of weeks since we have an abundance of them to eat up! In the meantime, you can enjoy this easy and healthy snack with your kids!

- 4 apples (I leave the skin on but you can peel)
- Preheat oven to 200F.
- If you would like to peel your apples, peel them. I leave the skin on.
- Use a vegetable spiraler (any plate works but for fries the thicker spiral is nice) or slice thinly.
- Lay parchment paper on a baking sheet.
- Spread spiraled or sliced apples onto the lined baking sheet.
- Sprinkle with cinnamon.
- Bake for 1 hour, toss, bake for another an hour (depending on the thickness you may need to put them in longer)
- Once the apple is crispy, remove and enjoy!
- The thinner the slices the faster they cook.

In January 2013 I realized I needed to do something to improve my health. I spent 2012 on maternity leave and often neglected taking care of my own health (sleepless nights and caring for a tiny human will do that!). Not to mention the many years before that where health was at the bottom of my list of priorities. Luckily, I discovered Lisa's 30 day green smoothie challenge. The recipes were incredible and a green smoothie drinker was born! But I didn't stop there. Starting each day in such a healthy way led me to consult with a naturopath (it would have been Lisa if we were in the same city), do an elimination diet, and discover that I have sensitivities to wheat and milk. I changed to a whole foods-based diet (most of the time) and took up running. In the span of 8.5 months I went from being tired and sluggish on the couch (literally - I could run for one minute at a time before having to walk) to having enough energy to run the Detroit International Half Marathon. I actually RAN the whole thing! And I lost almost 60lbs along the way! Thank you, Lisa, for being my catalyst. Your challenge kept me interested in a new way of living and saved me! I continue to drink a green smoothie every day for breakfast. What a wonderful way to start each day!
Thank you thank you thank you!!!
