Stay smooth AND healthy! Some of the latest FIT BITS* from our show!
Having a holiday party or get-together? Why not offer some healthy dessert options? Maybe along with that cake or pie, serve a fresh fruit tray or some luscious chocolate covered strawberries!
Want to avoid majorly overdoing it on Thanksgiving? Spread your eating out. Some families take a couple hours between dinner and dessert. Organize a touch football game or go on walk before your pumpkin pie for extra health benefits….and fun!
Should you eat organic? Nutritionists disagree on its value. However, The USDA’s tests do show that most non-organic produce contain residual pesticides even after washing. Buying everything organic can be pricey. The top recommended foods to buy organic are: celery, pears, peaches, apples and cherries.
You’ve heard the term attitude is everything? A group of researchers at the Stanford Longevity Center say having a good attitude may be the key to living longer. Staying positive can mean less stress and lower cortisol levels–and may well add to your life!
Go straight to the gym, do not pass go…or stop at home! If you work out at the end of the day (somewhere other than your home..a gym, fitness class, etc.), don’t go home first. That lure of being home and settling in may entice you to skip your workout!
