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:

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.
