Be Active & Eat Well!

This semester, we are focused on activity tracking and nutrition education- tailored to you!  Our Healthy Hour nutrition series aims to give you the knowledge, resources, & tools for healthy eating.   And by letting you choose the easiest, most convenient way to record your daily activity, you may just discover that keeping track is the key to staying on track.

Below you’ll find links to fantastic nutrition resources for meal planning, on-the-go-eating, dietary recommendations, & more.  There are also suggestions for web based and mobile apps that will simply log daily steps or your every move.  

Wondering where prizes fit in?  At every event, we’ll hand out or hold a raffle for great prizes- gift cards, shirts… you’ll have to show up to find out what it will be!  We will also randomly request a week of your chosen activity log via email, which will be another way to reap the rewards of the Way of Life program.
