Wellness Wednesday

#WellnessWednesday: As the weather grows cold, a warm bowl of oatmeal is a great way to get your daily whole grains intake. Try adding fresh fruit, seeds, or nut butter for some extra nutrients. Alternatively, you can choose savory toppings like wilted greens, a poached egg, and salt and pepper. 🥣🥬

Join our staff nutritionist Charanya Sundar as she shares some tips on balancing meals with fibers, whole grains, and proteins.

#NationalCaregiverAppreciationMonth: Do you know a caregiver? If so, give them a call and let them know that they’re appreciated. 📞

Some caregivers are fortunate to have the love and support of family, while others face a lot more hardships.

If you are either of these folks, #DACL wants you to know that we’re very grateful for you. To have the love in your heart to be a caregiver is phenomenal, and for that, we thank you. 💙

#WellnessWednesday: November is National Diabetes Month. Let’s be mindful of our added sugar intake this month and focus on fresh fruit and vegetables, lean meats, and whole grains.

Take some time to try a bowl of oatmeal with fruit for breakfast, a tuna sandwich on wholegrain bread for lunch, and a piece of grilled skinless chicken with a side of colorful vegetables for dinner. Easy and delicious! #NationalDiabetesMonth
