I live in Washington State. Apples are grown here and I have access to a wide variety of apples. Does anyone monomeal apples? I feel like I do not read about a lot of people eating a large quantity of apples. Any info would be helpful. I am wondering if I should take advantage of the apples available to me now and in the coming months?
I'm not sure how easy it is to get enough calories from them I think when i did the math you need 40 or 50 of them to get enough calories I think it might be hard to do with apples. Its still very easy for me to eat 10-15 a day on a high intake of htem kinda day. there in season by me I just got a bushel of macintosh for 10bucks. I'm going to eat them like crazy then make applesauce and get another bushel or two to eat like crazy etc..
nothing like fresh apples!
Great idea to make applesauce! I will definitely do this. Thanks for the suggestion.
Yeah with the surplus of apples I thought how could I not take advantage of the huge selection of these crisp juicy apples! Glad to hear others are mono-mealing them!
I monomeal apples. Like Jim says, it can be tough to get enough calories, so a banana/date meal in the evening might boost the cals up quickly. That said, I'm going to try apple island hopefully later in the month, as there'll be a glut of wild apples ripening near me.
Apples can cause melon belly, so watch out for that!
blend up apples with dates thats a good combo ;-)
Agreed! I've been doing this daily. About 8 apples and 15 dates.
Sounds like a great combination. I will try it! Thanks!
Ah thanks applecore for the warning on melon belly. I am sensitive to certain fruits and fear getting melon belly so I will be mindful of this.
I absolutely monomeal apples. I usually have 4-5 average sized apples while I drive to school and on my way back, so 2-3apples driving to school and the other 2 driving back. Those 4-5 are only about 500calories so that's kind of a small meal to me.
I also live in Washington and how could you not take advantage of apples when they are in season? That's when they taste the best! Trying new apples is a great past time of mine =)
Brian since you live in Washington and enjoy trying new apples you might enjoy this article in the Seattle Weekly. http://www.seattleweekly.com/home/949129-129/apples-apple-early-far...
I am right there with you and LOVE trying new apples. We are spoiled living here in the PNW with the large variety. I live in the Seattle area so I love taking a trip east of the mountains to get boxes of apples from the orchards.
This is great for me to know others are monoing apples, since where I live, we have a whole apple harvest festival (which oddly enough doesn't really include fresh apples, just SAD food made with apples) but we have a couple huge apple orchards that open up during this season!
I am currently eating a ton of apples too! It was a great year for apples here in Illinois. So, I got a bunch for 40 cents a pound! Feelee has a recipe for apple pie in a glass in her 5 day challenge that I am going to do tomorrow! Enjoy the apples!!!
