Osteoporosis Support Group

Osteoporosis is a disease of bone in which bone mineral density is reduced, bone microarchitecture is disrupted, and the amount and variety of non-collagenous proteins in bone is changed. It is estimated that 1 in 3 women and 1 in 5 men over the age of 50 worldwide have osteoporosis. It is responsible for millions of fractures annually, mostly involving the lumbar vertebrae, hip, and wrist.

Bone-Boosting 'Apple Bagel' Snack Recipe

I found this delicious, bone-boosting recipe for a bagel snack thats pH-balanced and good for your bones. Instead of a grain-based bagel, this round snack uses apple slices as the base and builds up from there with delicious bone-healthy ingredients. Apples contain a unique combination of antioxidants both polyphenols and flavonoids which gives them a nutritional edge over other fruits. I hope you like it!

Now on to the Apple Bagel Snack Recipe:
You can use trail mix, chocolate chips, coconut, or chopped nuts as a topping for your Apple Bagel if you choose not to use the Lawrence of Arabia Cereal Mix (shown below).

To make the Lawrence of Arabia Cereal, simply mix together the following ingredients:

1 cup rolled oats
cup sesame seeds
cup chopped almonds or pecans
cup chopped dates

And below is the recipe for the
Bone-Healthy Apple Bagels

1 medium apple, preferably organic
1 tablespoons unsweetened almond butter
Raw, preferably organic honey to taste (optional)
cup Lawrence of Arabia Cereal

Mix the almond butter and honey in a small bowl; place the cereal in a shallow dish.
Slice the apple crosswise into -inch slices.
Using an apple corer or small cookie cutter, cut out the core, stem, and blossom end out of the slices.
Pat the slices dry and spread them with the almond butter-honey mixture. Then push the slices gently into the cereal, almond butter side down.

This sounds really good-will have to try it when I can find time to make it. One thing I have read before is that apples are rich in boron which is needed for bone building.

This sounds really good, and it's gluten-free so that I can eat it. Thanks for posting.

That sounds so good!! I'm going to copy and paste it into my receipe
file. Thanks
