Enjoy Cinnamon Apple Bake this Fall

Apple picking in the fall is a wonderful opportunity for Senior Citizens to be physically active outdoors. A trip to the apple orchard is ideal for Senior Citizens because there’s no need to bend over when picking an apple off a branch. 

After picking bags of apples, it’s time to start baking! Try making Cinnamon Apple Bake as a delicious fall treat. This apple-inspired bread pudding is sure to satisfy your sweet tooth. Plus, it provides critical nutrients that Senior Citizens need such as calcium and potassium. Use whole-grain bread for added fiber.
