Banking on Gold

I had my first (that I can remember) Ginger Gold apple yesterday.  It was crisp and tart, and the price was right.  I may "bank" on these frequently this fall!  I'd put these apples right up there with Braeburns (another favorite of mine).

I also bought a seedless watermelon. We haven't had a bad or mediocre melon all summer.

Fruit was a large part of my food intake yesterday.

Says eHow:  Apples are a great source of dietary fiber - at least 15% of daily requirement.  They also have 13% of the recommended allowance of vitamin C in addition to a number of antioxidants.  Apple skins contain flavinoids that help prevent blood clots and help regulate blood pressure and cholesterol.  A medium apple contains 81 calories.  No need to feel even a little guilty for enjoying one as a snack or lunch with peanut butter spread on its slices!

What I did right:   Vitamin, posted, walked 30 minutes, made healthy choices in food, successfully controlled portions.


  1. Hi Rebecca....Have never heard of Ginger Gold apples. So far this week, I've gone swimming twice and walked once. Have been cognizant of portions. Took vitamins. Sincerely, Susan from p.s. Cannot comment on your post through Google. Don't know why.

  2. I've been eating so much more fruit on WW than before , and feel fabulous for it (and skinnier!). I went from 0-1 pieces per day to 2-4 now. We have a new yellow-skinned apple here in New Zealand but I don't know the name. It was nicer tasting than I thought it would be. I love apples!


  3. I haven't had this variety but I'll look for it! Bob & split an apple with our lunch today and I only ate 1/2 of a chicken salad sandwich with it. So for me, that was 1/2 of my normal portions...progress :)

  4. I am not a fan of apples. I wish I liked them without a crust but I cannot and do not. Watermelons, though I swear I could eat my weight in melon!
