Vegetable Food List – Does A dancer good!

 Dance. . . Go Home. . . Do it Again

Do you ever have days when you walk into the front door of your ballet/dance studio and say to yourself, “Wasn’t I just here?”  Well dancehealthier is certain that our muscles – if they had a voice – would most likely scream this!  “WeReN’T wE JusT HERE!”

One way – of the many ways – we can help our muscles recover faster, taper off excess amounts of lactic acid and prevent muscle fatigue is to eat healthy foods.  Plus, these healthy foods will do much more than just help out our muscles.  The benefits are endless. To name just a few: Physical strength, digestion, heart health, confidence, mental health, and “just feeling good.”  Feel free to add to this list.

Today’s Post will be a continuation (if you haven’t noticed already) of the last week two weeks, focusing on Vegetables.  Lots of Choices to add to your recipes, as well as chomp on for snacks.

One thought on “Vegetable Food List – Does A dancer good!

  1. Now with Spring in the air, much of these can be grown in your own garden….Herb’s love the South, and what a healthy accompaniment to a healthy dinner menu, not only for taste but for health! No need to add preservitives when you have the taste buds in your garden at your fingertips…..everyone can have a garden….even City folks….you can build one off your patio or invest in a local garden co-op!
