Health Tip of the Homestand
Fall is a fun time of year for football, cool weather, and sugary treats. Beware of what you might find in those tasty snacks! Foods like candy are high in added sugar and filled with empty calories. You would have to walk 5 thousand, 5 hundred and 50 steps to burn off all the calories in a full size candy bar. That's 2.75 miles! Instead of grabbing that candy bar, consider eating fruit which contains nutrients that are important to your health.
