JMS Daily Announcements

December 18, 2015

Friday, December 18, 2015

• OUTSIDE DAY FOR LUNCH BREAK EVERY DAY UNLESS THE WEATHER DOES NOT PERMIT •

Remember ~ your day is what you make it. Let's make it a good one!

WELLNESS WAKEUP CALL
Having trouble remembering to eat your veggies? Slice up raw carrots, celery, peppers, broccoli, and cauliflower. Keep them in a zipper bag in the refrigerator or toss them in your backpack for a nutritious snack between meals.

Salad is about more than just lettuce. Healthy salads have many different vegetables, and you can make them interesting by adding sunflower seeds, raisins, or your favorite nuts.

Don't get locked into eating vegetables the same way all the time. For example, you can have green beans by themselves, with pasta and tomato sauce, in vegetable soup, or even chopped up in your rice.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
