    Ancient Hawaiians baked it in an imu, pounded it into an ingredient for poi, and mixed it with coconut milk for pudding. They used the milky sap for glue and chewing gum, and the wood of its tree for canoes. The sap has also been said to heal cuts and other skin diseases.

    We all know the old saying about an apple a day keeping the doctor away. Indeed, apples provide several health benefits: vitamins A and C, and fiber. The easiest way to add an apple to your diet each day is to eat one raw, out of hand or sliced. You can be walking, driving, sitting at a desk, watching TV or reading the paper; apples are very portable. You can incorporate them into breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, and snacks. They can be eaten raw, cooked or dehydrated. And since October is National Apple Month, it’s a perfect time to try an apple a day. Your doctor will miss you.
