Fuel for Your Body

We all know that we should be making smart choices when we shop around for the right foods to support our health and vitality.  Your body is a machine that runs best on quality fuel - here are some tips on keeping your engine in tip top shape!

Eat Avocados
Avocados are rich in monounsaturated fats and vitamin E, both of which support healthy skin.  Try them on salads, sandwiches, and even in smoothies.

Pack in the Potassium
People who stick to diets that are rich in potassium may be less prone to high blood pressure.  Besides reducing sodium and taking other heart-healthy steps, eat potassium-packed fruit such as bananas, cantaloupe, and oranges.

Grab the Garlic
Adding raw or lightly cooked garlic and onions to your meals may help keep you healthy.  Garlic has antiviral and antibacterial properties and is believed to boost immunity.

Hydrate with H2O
It improves oral health, promotes weight loss and provides energy.  Studies show drinking water raises alertness.  Next time you need an energy boost, skip the coffee and energy drinks and take in that H2O.
