Kefir Apple Bowls

Apples are powerful food like medicine for your body. These apples make the whole house smell like the holidays. Apples have been associated with a number of benefits that could help promote long-term health, but one of my favorite things that apples, and more importantly the peel can do is feed the all-important bacteria called Akkermansia Municiphila. Akkermansia muciniphila helps to maintain our gut lining and has many health benefits. Our gut lining keeps us protected from the outside world so eating a lot of apples is a really good thing.
