King Kullen Prepares for Fall Season

(PRWEB) October 02, 2014

The leaves are changing and the weather is getting cooler; its time for fall! This season, be sure to make good, healthy decisions on what to eat. King Kullen offers the freshest produce, tons of baking and cooking ideas and more to help customers enjoy the season.

When one thinks of fall, the first food that comes to mind is apples. Apples are packed with tons of great nutrients and vitamins, which make them a staple for anyones autumn diet. With a NuVal score of 96, apples are an excellent nutritious choice. For those who arent familiar with NuVal, it is a nutritional scoring system that scores food from 1-100 on the basis of nutrition; the higher the score, the better the nutrition.

The NuVal system is easy-to-use and a great way to help families make good, healthy choices, said Michele Tonner, King Kullens nutritionist. Fall is a season of change, which means its the perfect time for you and your family to make a positive change in your daily life to improve your diet, and King Kullen can help.

King Kullen is the only grocery store on Long Island offering NuVal scores to its customers, and the scores are available for free on the shelf tags of thousands of items throughout King Kullen.

Dont have time to make a trip to the orchard this year? Try apple picking at the local grocery store instead. Director of Produce and Floral Rich Conger notes that King Kullen has a robust variety of apples in store, with assorted taste profiles to satisfy each member of your family. Conger recommends Honeycrisp apples. They are an exceptionally sweet apple with a great crunch. Their popularity has grown significantly over the last few harvest seasons.

Apples are perfect for healthy snacks or a great ingredient for pies, cakes and cookies. Baked goods can contain healthful ingredients while maintaining superior taste, said Sue Brooks, King Kullens Director of Bakery and Frozen Foods. If you choose to substitute recipes with healthier options, you can end up with a delicious result that not only tastes great but is good for you too!

This recipe for strawberry ghosts can be easily changed by substituting yogurt for chocolate: Try making these crunchy apple chips for a snack that packs tons of flavor into a crispy bite: Visit King Kullens Halloween Board on Pinterest for more fun recipe ideas:

While many consider it a vegetable, pumpkins are another popular fall fruit. Pumpkins have no saturated fats or cholesterol, and are rich in antioxidants, dietary fiber, minerals and vitamins.

It seems like pumpkin is everywhere during the fall, and its no wonder! Pumpkin makes a delicious addition to cookies, breads and other baked goods. They also add a warm flavor to homemade, pumpkin-spiced lattes.

We offer our customers fresh pumpkins throughout the fall, said Conger. Whether youre using them for baking or for carving, youll surely find a great, locally-grown pumpkin at King Kullen.

Fall is also the perfect time for enjoying some autumn-themed crafts with the kids. With a little creativity, its easy to find fun, simple and inexpensive crafts for kids using items that can easily be found around the house.

Pinterest is a great resource for those looking to get a little crafty this season, said Tracey Cullen, Director of Pricing and Social Media. We love to find, and test, interesting-looking activities and share them with our customers.

Try this craft using paint, paper and a childrens handprint: A toilet paper roll can even make the perfect shape for a pumpkin:

This season, try something new! Whether its a new recipe, craft or fun activity, its sure to be enjoyable. Stop in to any of King Kullens 39 locations for more fun fall information and find everything needed to make this season special.

Count cups, not calories, on the road to health

ST. PAUL, Minn. (PRWEB) September 30, 2014

Its time to cut the crap- skip the fads, count the cups and drop the fat. The research is clear. Americans consider obesity a more serious societal issue than cigarettes and alcohol. However, a recent Gallup poll found that their desire to shed pounds significantly outweighs their efforts to do so.

So, why this disconnect? Dr. Nick Meyer, author of “The ProportionFit Diet,” says gimmicky diets that promote extreme measures are one reason people are too intimidated to try and change their lives.

These fad diets arent successful because they focus solely on deprivation, Meyer said. Gaining control of your waistline isnt about completely cutting out important food groups; its as simple as understanding the food you eat.

By boiling down the hype and concentrating on facts that matter, Meyer helps readers of all ages form a healthy approach with his new guide, The ProportionFit Diet: Count Cups, Not Calories.

Meyer brings decades of medical experience to the book, which teaches readers the effective ProportionFit lifestyle as well as important facts about nutrition, fitness and potential diet pitfalls.

The ProportionFit Diet is a simple and realistic plan that is built on understanding portion control and how it impacts weight management, Meyer said. This isnt about a special pill or extravagant meal plans- its about becoming healthier without turning your lifestyle, budget or sanity upside down.
