WAUSAU, Wis. (WSAW) - Just in time for the holidays, we’ve got the tips, tricks and food and drink ideas you need to enjoy  a healthy and happy holiday season.

Kelly Jones, MS, RD, CSSD, LDN, joined NewsChannel 7 at 4 on Friday to share the scoop on simple ways to stay energized and feel great during the busiest time of the year, including ideas for sneaking in exercise even when stuck at home.  Plus, easy ingredient recipe swaps that will wow your holiday guests and provide an all-important nutrition and antioxidant fix.

Jones talked about one being pomegranates. The original superfruit, they’re easy to love and easy to open. The ruby-red arils make a tempting snack. They’re great in salads, yogurt and oatmeal, or on toast, instead of jelly. As a garnish, arils add pizzazz to any dish. Here are some of the great benefits:

  • A good source of fiber
  • 8% daily value of vitamin C
  • Non-GMO.
  • Gluten Free.
  • Certified Kosher.
