New Year’s Resolutions: Eat More Apples!

January 20th, 2015 · No Comments

Dippin’Stix sliced apples and premium dips are an excellent snack choice for those who are trying to lose weight in 2015.

As we roll into 2015, many are working hard to keep the resolutions they set on New Year’s Day. According to a study done by the University of Scranton, the number one New Year’s resolution for 2014 was to ‘lose weight’, with ‘staying fit and healthy’ falling in the number five slot. Though about 70% of people can maintain their resolutions through the first two weeks of the New Year, less than 50% keep their resolutions through June.

Whether your resolutions include eating more fruits and vegetables, losing weight, or staying healthy, Dippin’ Stix apple slices can help you achieve your goal. The phrase “an apple a day keeps the doctor away” may come to mind. One or more apples a day can help you maintain or lose weight while keeping you full. One step better, our premium dips can help satisfy your sweet tooth craving so that you stay focused and on track.

In addition to helping you lose weight, apples have many nutritional benefits that will help you function at your best all year long!
• Soluble fiber, like the pectin from apples, can strengthen your immune system.
• Older women who eat a lot of fruit have less chance of bone fractures.
• One apple a day for a month can lower LDL levels (“bad cholesterol”) by 40%.

Apples have long been known for their nutritional value, but what exactly is so special about this tasty fruit? For an 8 oz. serving, or one large apple, there are only 130 calories and negligible amounts of fat or cholesterol. The average apple has about 35g of carbohydrates. This might leave many on low-carb diets cringing, but it’s important to remember that cells need carbs as an energy source. The sugar and carbs found in apples and apple slices are essential for lasting energy and normal digestion.

There are so many benefits to eating apples that it makes sense to fit it in to your 2015 resolutions. This year, instead of focusing on the negatives (what you’re losing or giving up), put a positive in your life: eating more apples!

Dippin’ Stix can help you stick to your resolution. Our single-serving apple slices with premium dips are an easy and convenient way to add more fruit to your diet. With dips like peanut butter, caramel, and yogurt, there is one to satisfy every one of your cravings! Use our Store Locator to find a grocer near you that sells Dippin’ Stix!
