EASY WAYS TO STAY HEALTHY THIS SUMMER
Choose Fresh: Beware of the working person’s snack trap. It is often easier and cheaper to grab a bag of chips or a candy bar when you’re famished. Instead, try to bring fresh vegetables and/or fruit with you to work. Buy groceries at the beginning of the week and package single servings of your favorite healthy snacks to stash in your desk. Planning ahead is key! Add Greek yogurt and almonds for a boost of iron, calcium and omega-3’s!
Read Labels: We all know many processed foods are not generally good for our health. At times, we can be fooled by packaging that claims, “All natural” or “Low in sugar.” The key to seeing through the packaging comes in the ingredient list – read it. The ingredients are listed in order of quantity, so the greatest quantities come first and the lowest come at the end. If dextrose, high fructose corn syrup, enriched flour or any unknown ingredients are listed near the top, chose something else! If you can’t pronounce it, don’t eat it. If it’s “low sugar” but contains artificial sweetener such as aspartame, skip it. Got a mean sweet tooth? Try honey!
On March 25th, the CRES travel team will head to the Big Apple to attend our third consecutive Eastern Regional Meeting in New York City with the National Reverse Mortgage Lenders Association.
