This is the time of year when everyone you know is getting sick. A simple way to avoid this from happening to you is to involve the recommended amount of fruit into your diet. Go shopping in the beginning of the week so you can have a piece of fruit every morning. It is a simple, enjoyable and healthy snack!
Staying Actively Healthy
One of the hardest parts of exercising regularly is finding the time to incorporate it into our busy schedules. An easy workout is jumping rope for intervals, totaling 10-20 minutes. Jumping rope can be just as effective as going for a run!
