As I was cutting up an apple for my fruit salad I recalled a conversation I had with Cherie Ceberano a few decades ago now. Cherie was eating an apple. The whole apple, even the core. When I remarked on this she said, “That’s the best bit!” I was insufficiently curious at the time to ask why, but I have since learned the two healthiest parts of the apple are the skin and the seeds. The irony struck me next. What two parts do we cut off for the kids? the skin and the core! Then I thought of it as a good benchmark. The very healthy eat the flesh, skin and seeds. The next healthy eat the flesh and skin. Then there are those who don’t eat fruit at all!
