Stewed Apples Recipe

This fiber-filled meal is easily digestible and quick to prepare, the perfect morning meal your gut will love. Stewed apples have an amazing benefit: gut-healing pectin, a gel-like sheen that's released when the apples are cooked. Cooked apples act as a gentle energy igniter to the digestive system.
