Healthy Snacks for the New Year
MACON, Ga. On Thursday, Food Blogger Erica Key of the online blog Eating with Erica joined the WGXA Morning News team to discuss all things healthy eating for 2017.
As the trend of healthy eating continues to grow across the nation, consumers often look for innovative ways to keep the full flavor of their everyday foods while adding in healthy substitutes and subtle changes to everyday eating habits.
Key says the trick is to find healthy alternatives for things that you normally eat and drink. Substitutes like green tea are always a good alternative for coffee. In stead of sugary drinks and snacks like soda and chips, you can try switching to things like coconut water and pretzels or nuts with hummus and avocado.
Another timeless staple is apples and peanut butter. During Key's segment she featured the organic apple brand Autumn Glory Apples , a unique variety of apples grown and in North America. The company has developed a unique way to pack the fresh fruit with sweet flavors, including hints of cinnamon and subtle notes of caramel.
