Hello Summer, Hello JOYA Apples
If you’ve been following my Instagram for a while, you might already know that I can’t live without my morning Oats – loaded with lots of mixed seeds, raisins, a little swirl of peanut butter, and lots of chopped crunchy red apple. Our family takes the old adage of ‘an apple a day’ to a whole new level actually, because our girls favourite snack before bedtime is always a shiny, crunchy apple. And, being a farm girl myself, I couldn’t be happier to partner with the lovely team at JOYA Apples to support a proudly South African farming story.
Not All Apples Are Created Equal
Packed with Vitamin C, nutrients and natural sugars, JOYA®apples are the crunchy way to get an instant energy boost. They can handle knocks without bruising, and thanks to their high water content, these super juicy, sweet and tangy, low GI snacks are the ideal way to quench your thirst on the go.
The farmers of JOYA®apples take extra time and attention when growing their fruit, which makes for a crunchier, juicier product with high nutritional values. Great care is taken to keep the apples chilled after picking, which means they also stay fresher for longer. This also ensures they maintain a water level of 85%, making them extra thirst-quenching.
Grown by specialist growers across South Africa, this beautiful red apple is a cross between Golden Delicious and Lady Williams. It combines their best features to create an apple that tastes delicious and offers an instant energy boost with each bite. Chopped, peeled or simply crunched, JOYA® apples are high in fibre, natural sugars, loaded with vitamins, minerals and healthy, unrefined carbohydrates – everything you need to live your best life.
