i'm the world's biggest nerd. i know it. i embrace it. as part of the biggest loser/hayley's life style change going on - i'm trying to eat more fruits and vegetables. one of my produce purchases is always apples. as i actually like apples. last time i went, i got a bundle of fuji apples. this time i went and got gala apples. i'm noticing a big difference between the two in my enjoyment level. i will start getting fuji apples. only. even if it means i have to pay more. so that got me thinking. its amazing to me that there's that big of a difference in apples. i found this website. interesting! i'll include some of the facts about apples that i find neato. and yes. i did just say neato. and yes, i am going to use a great deal of what i found next fall in my "apple/fall/johnny appleseed" unit. yay ~ i love finding things that are helpful for school!
