When you’re trying to be intentional about living a healthy life, you might think fast food is entirely off the table — but it doesn’t have to be. Even registered dieticians and nutritionists zip through the drive-thru lane or order fast-casual eats sometimes. The difference is in what they order, though.

We love them both, but there’s no denying that the fall apple bounty you’ll soon be bestowed with presents some big decisions. There’s no way you can snack on all of those apples before they go bad. You can only make so many pies or so much applesauce too before you grow tired of them. Instead, the answer lies in finding innovative ways to make healthy and nutritious apples into healthy and nutritious recipes.
