Cherry Cinnamon Apple Bake Courtesy of Joe Cross


My husband and I recently watched the documentary “Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead” by Joe Cross. It is a docu-journey that chronicles Joe’s fight against his ailing health, his obesity and struggle to regain his health through “juicing.” I was truly inspired by the film and told my husband that we need a juicer. We are getting ready to return to the U.S. – to sunny California, no less – so he told me I have to wait until then. But I really wanted to give juicing a try as soon as I saw the film.

Well, I went on the website, www.jointhereboot.com, and set up a profile. I was very excited to find recipes! And not just for juices…for FOOD!!! I couldn’t hardly wait to try some out. And one of the first ones I tried was a breakfast recipe. The Cherry Cinnamon Apple Bake. YUM!

You have to try this recipe to believe it. It’s so super simple and absolutely divine. I make it most weeks now and have it for breakfast often.

Cherry Cinnamon Apple Bake

  • 1 cup Cherries (cut and discard pit)
  • 2 Apples cored and chopped
  • 3 tbsp Raisins (choose golden variety for a twist)
  • 1 tbsp Cinnamon (or more to taste)
  • 1/2 tsp. Nutmeg

Coat baking dish with canola oil (I use coconut oil instead to avoid GMOs) and place fruit in dish. Coat with cinnamon and nutmeg. Bake at 375 degrees for 45 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes. Enjoy!

How simple is that???

And you’ll be surprised at just how lovely it is in the morning for breakfast. Fast, simple and delicious. You just can’t beat that!

Here’s how mine looked…

There are a couple more recipes on the website that involve baking fruit and I want to give them a try, as well. So, stay tuned…

To a healthier, happier and longer life.
