We’re halfway through January, how are you doing with your New Year’s resolutions; have you stopped swearing? Started running? What does your diet look like? The start of a new year encourages us to make a healthy change in our life and improve upon ourselves, whether it be structured around relationships, fitness, health, or wealth.

This time of year, everyone is trying the new fad diet in hopes of lasting longer than they did last year; at least through January, right? Here at JAZZ™, we aren’t crazy about the word “diet” – it’s no fun and sounds really boring. Instead, we follow and encourage a healthy lifestyle, which means incorporating our amazing and nutritious apples in as many dishes as possible. JAZZ™ apples are absolutely loaded with beneficial fibers, vitamins, and nutrients. And oh yeah, they taste incredible too!

This new year, try out something that you can stick to; something that lasts. A healthy lifestyle is so different from a diet, because it’s just that: a lifestyle. This means finding balance and eating more clean, fresh foods, not running from carbs and counting calories. Eating clean, whole, and fresh foods does a wonder for not only your body, but your mind as well. This means less processed foods, less added artificial sugar, and less trans fats. Does this kind of eating work? Well, write us back in a month and tell us how your body feels – you won’t regret it!

Our JAZZ™ apple winter power bowl is the epitome of what we are talking about! This bowl features quinoa (loaded with complex carbs and packed with protein), kale as the essential greens, carrots that are full of fiber, and the always refreshing JAZZ™ apple that provides an unmistakable crunch and flavour to complete this healthy lifestyle dish!

One of the hardest parts of trying to eat healthy whole foods or really sticking to any diet, is trying to curb your sweet tooth. We all get an itch for something sweet from time to time and a tangy-sweet whole JAZZ™ apple is a great substitute. Especially our balsamic and JAZZ™ apple almond butter stuffed dates! These sweet treats are delicious as well as nutritious, full of protein and healthy fats coming from the almond butter and TONS of fiber exploding out of the dates and apples.
