When you think about getting sick, you think about all the advice your parents gave you as a kid: don’t go out in the cold without your jacket, get plenty of rest, and wash your hands. You might not be thinking about eating food to strengthen your immune system.
As part of our January seasonal theme, Small Changes for a Healthier You, we’re focusing on little tweaks to your routine that make a BIG impact!
The holidays are the perfect time to practice (or start to practice) mindful eating. It is often easier to mindfully eat foods that we deem special or indulgent than it is our everyday food choices. So, Thanksgiving is a perfect day to allow yourself to enjoy ALL of your favorites while embracing the mindful approach to eating.
Earlier this month, Parkhurst Dietitian Alicia Koloski teamed up with onsite Marketing Manager Lindsay Winn at Loyola University Maryland to offer healthful, seasonal samples and accompanying recipe cards to students. This was all part of Loyola Dining’s #WellnessWednesday, an initiative spearheaded by Winn, and part of LUM’s broader Healthy Hound program.
