Always eat fruits & veggies that are “in season!” – they cost less and they’re more nutritious! Try to eat local, that way it’s not being shipped halfway across the world!

The end of summer means an abundance of delicious and ripe fruit. Peaches, nectarines and plums are perfect on the
grill, and make a fast and healthy dessert without extra fat and calories. Cut your fruit in half and remove the pit. Sprinkle tops with spice (cinnamon, nutmeg or ginger are great choices) and grill over medium heat for 2-3 minutes on each side. Serve with a dollop of vanilla nonfat greek yogurt, garnish with drizzle of honey and pinch of spice, and and enjoy!
Papayas are also a good source of vitamin C, vitamin E, vitamin K, potassium, folate, and zinc. Papayas have also been shown to be very helpful in promoting healthy lungs, a strong immune system, and a healthy heart.
If you are looking to get a little more out of your dance workout, try wearing heavier shoes (like a cool new pair of hightops) or buying light ankle weights. Also, any chance you get during the workout, engage your core. It will help with stability and strengthen your tummy muscles.
