This month means that warm weather is (hopefully) right around the corner, thoughts of Spring Break are in the air, and it is time to look back and reevaluate any progress that has or hasn't been made on New Year's resolutions.
If you're anything like the majority of people, myself included, your resolution to live a healthier lifestyle may have already come to a halt (or, in my case, never really began). Why is it so difficult to stay on track?
For me, one major aspect is that I try to make a full life overhaul instead of focusing on how small changes can add up. Am I really going to give up all sweets and begin working out five days a week? Ha!
However, looking for simple solutions is much easier (and more attainable), which is why I am excited to instead be able to make a Replacement Resolution with Musselman's.
Musselman's fully believes that making healthy, delicious apple sauce is more than just a job, it's a way of life for this 100-year-old grower-owned cooperative. Along with their traditional apple sauce, they offer apple sauce blended with other fruit flavors, lite apple sauce for those who are counting calories, apple juice, apple butter, and more.
But as well as their variety of great products, Musselman's Replacement Resolutions are an easy way to help you and your family stay on track. All you have to do is swap out one of your favorite snacks with Musselman's apple sauce. It’s that easy!
Replace an unhealthy snack with one that is healthy as well as delicious? The bigger question is where to start first!
With the arrival of a Musselman's Replacement Resolution Prize Pack...
...it didn't take me long to find the perfect place to begin: packed lunches.
I know that I'm not the only mom to struggle to come up with ideas as to what to pack in her kids' lunchboxes, so I find that I'm often giving my husband vague instructions before he heads to the grocery store. Get some yogurts for them, I'll say, followed by, I don't know. Crackers, maybe?
Which is why I can't blame him completely when what ends up coming home isn't... exactly what I would have chosen from the shelf. It's time to cut the calories by resolving to replace the sugary yogurts with healthy and delicious Musselman's apple sauce.
In each 4oz Musselman's apple sauce, there are only 50 calories, 0 grams of fat and 8 grams of sugar (which come directly from the apples themselves, as there is no sugar added to these yummy little cups).
In comparison, this yogurt concoction that my husband brought home (you had a coupon for these, right, Honey? Otherwise, why?) are in 3.5oz cups and contain 100 calories,1.5 grams of fat and 11 grams of sugar.
Considering that my girls love Musselman's apple sauce, I'm definitely going to be swapping out future yogurts with these healthy little cups! They'll receive half the calories, no fat or cholesterol, low sodium and all of the healthy goodness from fresh, seasonal apples!
While I can't say that any of us have taken up yoga with our new Musselman's yoga ball yet, I'm still happy that we have been able to seamlessly replace a variety of not-so-healthy snacks with a tasty cup of apple sauce instead. Forget the 100-Calorie Packs and miniscule portions, I'll take a refreshing and delicious cup of apple sauce instead!
Be sure to visit Musselman's website and connect with them on Facebook and Twitter to find out more about their whole line of products, find coupons and check out their recipes.
And, thanks to their generosity, one person will be able to bring home the wholesome, healthy goodness of the best apple sauce around as well, because...
One lucky person will win a Musselman's
