Cheesy Apples from Dr. Oz

Cheesy Apple Sandwiches 

 Ingredients:
apple
3 tbs. low-fat ricotta cheese 
10 almonds
 lemon juice

Core apple and slice in 4 pieces horizontally and spread a light layer of ricotta cheese on the bottom 3 of the pieces of apple.  Chop the almonds finely and sprinkle over the ricotta cheese.  Squeeze lemon juice on top of the ricotta and almonds.  

*Dr. Oz tip: Lemon juice slows down the absorption of sugar.  

I like to slice my apples like normal and spread the ricotta/almond mixture over half the apple slice and then squeeze the lemon over all of them.  Makes it a little easier to eat than in sandwich form.
