Health benefits: “Unsweetened applesauce is just apples and water, making it rich in both soluble fiber, which helps keep cholesterol from building up on the walls of your arteries, and insoluble fiber, which keeps your digestion on track,” says Rachel Meltzer, MS, RD. “Applesauce (and apples!) is also a good source of the antioxidant quercetin, which prevents inflammation and may protect against heart disease and cancer.”
Mix it up: Sprinkle some cinnamon onto your applesauce for a warm, comforting flavor.
