Remember when making food choices…choose color!

A variety of colorful fruit and vegetables will provide your body with the vitamins minerals and fiber needed to maintain health and energy. It is suggested that we consume 5 servings of fruits and vegetables per day. Try to choose vibrant colors when making choices and fresh or frozen fruits or vegetables are always the best choice.

I find Farmer’s Markets are a great place to find some healthy choices although the selection may be limited and sometimes not convenient…most of the Farmer’s Markets I find are while I’m out-of-town and not planning to buy, so plan ahead…On the other hand, Henrey’s Market tends to have a great variety, with plenty of Organic options, at a very affordable price. Remember, when you have the choice…choose Organic!!!

Thirty minutes of physical activity for adults and 60 minutes for children is very important to maintain good health and a healthy weight…Remember to drink water for hydration especially when it’s hot outside.
