An apple a day keeps the doctor away? (Scientific info to back up this theory: Apples contain an antioxidant called quercetin, which helps boost your immune system. They’re also loaded with fiber and because fiber helps you feel full, apples can be a great (and delicious!) part of a plan to lose weight.)
