LC Perfects the Parfait
This week in the Healthy Habits Fit Club, led by Healthy Lifestyles Coordinator, Leah Vazquez, Members talked about fluids and the need for hydration. Some of the key points that both Leah and Healthy Lifestyles Assistant, Taysha James hit home were that fluids are extremely important for the body, because our bodies use up fluids we drink, so we have to replace them, or “hydrate.”
The Members also learned that all beverages replace the fluids our body uses. Some have no calories (water, zero-calorie soft drinks, many flavored waters, zero-calorie sports drinks and coffee and tea), and some do have calories (100-percent juice, fruit drinks, sports drinks, fluid milk and other soft drinks).
The session wrapped up with the making of homemade parfaits. Members used low fat vanilla yogurt, all natural granola, raisins, cranberries, and pineapple to create these deliciously healthy treats.
