Snack the Healthful Way

Wawona Fruit Moothie

After the holidays, we all look for ways to eat healthier — and let’s be honest; we all enjoy a snack. Keep your snacking healthy this season by loading up on delicious fruit treats. Wawona frozen fruit from Fresno has been grown on a family farm for more than 60 years. Their fresh-frozen fruit is hand picked at the peak of ripeness and processed within 24 hours to capture that fresh-fruit taste. When fresh peaches and strawberries are out of season, you can still find them in these frozen bags. Try these simple recipes using Wawona frozen fruit to create healthy snacks all season long:

  • Make a “summer” smoothie with a cup of frozen peaches, ¾ cup Greek yogurt and a drizzle of honey
  • Top hot cereal such as oatmeal with frozen berries for extra nutrition in the morning
  • Combine frozen strawberries with sparkling water for a refreshing drink

Eating Healthy Doesn’t Mean Giving Up the Cheese


So it’s the New Year, and we’re all trying to lose those extra holiday pounds, right? And, if you’re like me, this year (just like every other year) you’ve vowed to cut out all fatty foods (including cheese), reduce your portion sizes and eat a bland diet of brown rice, lean protein and copious amounts of vegetables. Sound familiar?

While eating sensible portions and focusing on lean proteins and lots of vegetables are always healthy diet choices, no one said you have to lose the flavor too. I say, this year why torture yourself? Try grating a little Parmesan over your brown rice, or even try indulging in a quick bite of Sharp Cheddar instead of chocolate as your end-of-the-day treat. New research studies show that regular cheese consumption does not elevate artery-clogging cholesterol, and a one-ounce serving (which goes a long way when grated over veggies, fish or whole-grains) contains more protein and as much calcium as a glass of milk.

Go Nuts for Almonds


Mother Nature put just about everything in California almonds! These standout nuts supply a wealth of nutrients, and according to numerous research studies (some from UC Davis), making almonds a regular part of your diet may give your health a boost.

  • Tops in Vitamin E: A one-ounce serving (20 almonds) is one of the best sources of this antioxidant vitamin that may help ward off cancer and other age-related ailments, such as Alzheimer’s disease. And researchers strongly suggest that Vitamin E from foods is best (rather than from supplements) for getting this vitamin’s benefits.
  • Heart-health goodness: Almonds contain monounsaturated fats and unique compounds that help protect your heart. Studies show that eating almonds four times a week lowers heart disease risk by more than 30 percent. Other research shows that including almonds in your diet also helps lower artery-clogging LDL cholesterol levels.
  • Weight-loss aid: Several research reports suggest that including almonds as part of a low-calorie diet further assists in trimming body fat and waistlines, along with curbing appetite, compared to just dieting without these nuts.
  • Blood sugar moderator: New evidence points to including almonds as part of an eating plan to help control healthy blood sugar levels (great news for people with diabetes!).
  • Mineral powerhouse: Almonds supply a wealth of minerals including manganese, which is crucial for the protection of various body cells, and potassium and magnesium, two minerals key to healthy blood pressure.
  • Add almonds to just about anything: Sprinkle almonds over morning cereal, use as a topper for steamed veggies or cooked grains, and toss into greens either raw or sautéed for a nutritional boost.
