We're not long into 2015, so people are likely heeding carefully that New Year's pledge to watch what they eat and drink.

That can be a tough task for Canadians who love a Tim Hortons double-double and apple fritter.

So the coffee-and-donut chain has come out with a new promotion highlighting menu items that won't jeopardize your attempts to stay healthy.

The company has also launched an improved nutrition calculator that allows you to build a Tim Hortons meal and figure out how many calories and grams of fat you're consuming.

Here are eight items that the company lists as its "good, wholesome" offerings. (We should also note that while the company included a Timbit as part of its healthy offerings, we chose not to include it because ... come on guys, it's a Timbit.)
