Cookie parties, family gatherings, reunions with friends – this season is full of great times to gather with loved ones. And to stuff your face with delicious treats.

But you can make your desserts a little more healthy with these tips for making high fiber baked goods.
The good news is that with a few easy additions and substitutions, you can turn your favorite holiday baked goods into fiber powerhouses without detracting from the decadent taste that makes you crave them so much in the first place.

But that's not all! There are many fun uses for apples. They can be deliciously useful both in and out of the kitchen. Read on to learn how apples can be used in the kitchen, for a facial mask, and even as an exercise booster!
