Wellness tip- Add colors to your dishes. While it’s great to eat your greens, you want to mix it up and add other colored vegetables like orange (carrots), red (beets, peppers, red cabbage), and yellow (peppers, squash). This ensures you are receiving a good balance of the nutrition you need!
As I mentioned in my last post, early Fall is my favorite time of the year. With early Fall comes NFL games, tailgating, my new job as a teacher, and much much more. After a long day of work, I usually head straight to the fridge for a snack. Just a little something to hold me over until dinner. Lately, I’ve been making a Peanut Butter Fruit Dip for apples, bananas or berries. The combination of the fiber from the fruit and protein from the Greek yogurt and peanut butter keep me full until dinner. I’ve also brought this dip to BBQs, which has been a big hit. It’s something I can easily whip up to bring over to a friend’s house to watch football.
