Start the Year Right with Healthy Crispy Fruit Snacks from Crispy Green!

Make These No-Sugar Added Snacks Part of your New Year’s Resolution  

Fairfield, NJ – January 07, 2021 – Embrace the best version of yourself in 2021 with a healthier lifestyle! As people continue to face health challenges due to the coronavirus pandemic, Crispy Green, makers of Crispy Fruit freeze-dried fruit snacks, believes (aside from good hand-washing and social distancing practices) a balanced diet, low in added sugar and carbohydrates, is the best way to bolster one’s immunity to help ward off potential illnesses, an ideal New Year’s Resolution.  

According to the Centers for Disease & Prevention people with underlying health conditions are more prone to serious complications arising from Covid-19. Leading comorbidities include diabetes, heart disease, obesity and chronic kidney disease. Studies from the CDC show type 2 diabetes as a leading risk factor. One UK study of 61 million medical records, found that 30% of Covid-19 deaths had diabetes, with twice as many having type 2 diabetes vs. type 1.  

Crispy Green believes a healthy lifestyle and diet as put forth by the recent Dietary Guidelines for Americans from the CDC is a great place to start planning your Healthier New Year. The guidelines recommend restricting calories from added sugars to less than 10 percent of total calories per day. Eating more vitamin-packed foods with fewer added sugars, less saturated fat, sodium and avoiding trans-fat is a great way to maintain a healthy weight and bolster your immunity.  

Reboot, Renew, Refuel 

Fruit is part of a healthy diet, packed with nutrients and antioxidants. Crispy Fruit is pure fruit, nothing else–no added sugar, clean single ingredient, Non-GMO and under 60 calories per serving! Crispy Green captures the nutrients and flavor of delicious, ripe fruit and freeze-dries them to the perfect crispy texture for a delicious AND healthy grab-n-go snack. “Our snacks not only taste great and are easy to incorporate into a busy lifestyle, but they’re also guilt-free because they contain no added sugar,” said Angela Liu, founder and CEO of Crispy Green. “We love that fact that they are the foundation to people’s healthy diets and could be helping to bolster their immunities.”     

Crispy Green’s healthy lifestyle website, Smart Lifebites is packed with information to help you start planning a healthier 2021. It features the latest in health information, nutrition tips, fitness trends, family, travel, recipes and more. This month Smart Lifebites features an inspirational story of a Crispy Green staffer who transformed her life by adopting a healthier lifestyle. And if you’re looking for a little fun, you can take a quz called “What’s Your Flavor” on www.crispygreen.com, and receive a surprise discount on your favorite flavor of Crispy Fruit!
