When You Can't Eat Raw Apples, Sautee 'Em!

One of the things about chemo that I have found a slight bit on the irritating side, is the kind of person I have become: a germaphope.
With having very low white blood cell counts, I have had to be VERY careful about where I go, what I touch, who I am around, and even what I eat. When you know something as simple as a cold could put you in the hospital, you kinda become paranoid...
I don't spend large amounts of time in close quarters, with large groups of people, so as to limit exposure to germs. And I have had to replace my natural homemade cleaners, for bleach to ensure no germs linger on my cabinets.
I have even had to stop eating raw fruits an veggies for a time.
I really had a craving for apples today. But, knowing my counts are still low, I knew chowing down on a fresh one might not be such a great idea. So, I got creative, and cooked some up.
All I did was peel and slice two apples. Preheated some coconut oil in a pan. Placed said apples, in  the oil. Sprinkled on some cinnamon and nutmeg. Sauteed them for about 6 minutes...

and voila! A yummy, healthy fall snack.
A perfect follow-up to setting up an outdoor scene. :D
