Weekly Health Tip:

Please click on our "Health & Wellness" tab above.

08/01/20: Avoid processed junk food. Processed junk food is extremely unhealthy. They provide mostly empty calories; they have been engineered to trigger your pleasure centers/tricking your brain into overeating – even promoting food addiction in some people. So if and when you snack, snack on real food instead: such as celery or carrot sticks with a nut butter (e.g. – cashew butter or almond butter), mixed nuts (a small handful) or seeds, one serving of fresh fruit or fresh fruit slices with nut butter or non-dairy cheese, red bell pepper with guacamole, kale chips, cucumber slices with hummus, dried unsweetened coconut, or a snack from yesterday’s nutritious lunch or dinner.
