Quick and Easy Apple Coring for the Neurotic

I am always looking for easy ways to eat well. I think about food and what I am putting in my body a lot. I wouldn't say I have an eating disorder, I have never made myself throw anything up and I am able to stop myself from all out binge eating. I do however get a lot of pleasure out of the high level of control I experience when I am closely monitoring my food intake.

Yesterday, as I ate my healthy brunch of a toasted salmon sandwich with spinach, I turned on Martha Stewart to keep me company. She and her guest were coring apples to make applesauce to go with a pork loin roast. I discovered the most amazing thing, you can core an apple without using the second step of cutting out the cores and wasting some of the apple and most importantly precious time. See diagram below.

So the next time you are standing around in your kitchen avoiding work and looking for something to feed your deep internal hunger, cut up an apple and head back to your desk. It's fast, it's easy and you'll feel virtuous which is good as gold in my warped mind.

I love it! I still think about the time that Martha taught me how to peel and pit an avocado, and end up with something that looked presentable and whole (instead of pre-guac). Now I can add apple coring to my repertoire. I feel virtuous already.xo
