baked apple cheesecake

The baked apple cheesecake is a variation of the classic New York baked cheesecake. It features a base made out of graham crackers and butter, it’s topped with cinnamon-spiced apples and sweetened cream cheese filling which is then baked in the oven until golden and bubbling. When cooled, it can be topped with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream for serving. The best part about making your own cheesecake is that you get to taste both hot gooey fresh from the oven and soft chilled creamy sweet goodness! Yum!

Conventional vs. Organic

The image on the right is a typical example of conventional produce found in any grocery store. You can clearly see how picked-over and decimated this food is from being harvested before it has reached its full growth potential. A lot of these fruits and veggies never even had a chance to develop their true nutrient density during the growing process! That’s because growers want you to buy them, so they pick them before they’re ripe, ship them across the country in trucks that have blasting heating units, then put them out for several days under bright lights in the produce section at your local supermarket.
