Can you believe that it is 2017 now?? I am sure that with the start of the New Year the same thing is on a lot of people’s mind how can I improve my health?? One thing that is always big on us meal wise is what can I do that is easy, convenient, and can be consumed on the go?? Now like many other sports families, it seems our biggest go to is SUBWAY® restaurants!! Since always have a cooler with us is it’s easy to stop and get subs to go and keep them on ice until a break in games, especially during tournament weekends!With different health problems running our family history, we have met with a couple of nutritionists the past couple of years! I loved that one of them had a talk with the kids about the colors of the rainbow for vegetables and how much to incorporate them into your diet. My youngest compared this to making art with your food and being the little artist she is loving this as a way to incorporate more veggies into her meals. This is especially important to your heart as well and being heart healthy. Did you know that in 2016 SUBWAY and the American Heart Association had teamed up to launch +color?? Not sure what it is, it’s an initiative that will help to encourage Americans to add more fruits and vegetables to their diet, plus help to understand the critical health benefits that the change can mean to them!!! Just by adding an extra cup of color to your diet every day can help to improve your overall health. With 10 varieties of vegetables, SUBWAY is the perfect place to create art on a sandwich!
