Apples, oranges or bananas?

f9adc3fb18e7e6eb38380ebcaf7e_grandeOh, those food studies. First, it’s eat eggs. Then it’s don’t. Next it’s red wine, chocolate, and cheese. Now, it’s apples. A British study is saying apples, and in particular apple juice, are so chock-a-bock with acids that they’re more likely to cause dental erosion than, say, Coke.

Well, not that it’s bunk (actually, far from it I think), but I don’t really pay much attention to studies these days. Most have me rolling my eyes. (Have you guys heard of the IgNobel Prizes, honouring improbable research? Hilarious.) And anyway, everything in moderation, right? But this particular study doesn’t really affect me because I don’t eat apples.

Yeah, I know, what a shocker. Here’s why:

  1. I used to eat lots of oranges, and I got out of the habit of eating apples.
  2. I find apples way over sour or over sweet.
  3. I now eat lots of bananas because they’re way more versatile, especially as breakfast foods.

So I’d pick bananas. Then oranges. And lastly, apples. On their own, that is. But if you’re talking about apple crumble…well, that’s a different story.

What’s your fruit pick?
