JMS Daily Announcements

Wednesday, January 20, 2016

• INSIDE DAY FOR LUNCH BREAK DUE TO DANGEROUSLY LOW TEMPERATURE •

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

WELLNESS WAKEUP CALL
Legumes, also known as beans, peas and lentils, are special because they are high in protein and can help us last for a long time between meals without getting hungry. They contain no cholesterol, very little fat, and plenty of fiber. Legumes grow in pods that have a string along one side, like a little zipper.

People from Mexico, Spain, and South America have discovered delicious and nutritious ways to combine beans, rice, and colorful vegetables such as tomatoes, avocado, and lettuce in wrappers made from wheat or corn. We call these burritos or tacos.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
Pablomaria S. & Tyarion B.!
