The School Nutrition Association is putting on their yearly National School Breakfast week! Every year the SNA hosts this event to encourage breakfast in schools!
We all have those days where it's feels like time is dragging on, work is piling up and you're never going to make a dent in it, and you're just anxious and stressed out. It can make sitting at your desk an absolute nightmare.
For as long as most of us care to remember, it's been common knowledge that breakfast is the most imporatint meal of the day. What's odd is that everyone seems to be aware of this, but a large portion of Americans skip breakfast, or don't eat properly for breakfast.
After a very mild winter, it looks like for at least a little while we're going to get some temperatures that are normally not here until mid April. I know the staff here at Darlington isn't complaining.
If you're trying to lose weight, or even just eat healthier, one of the first things you need to cut out is that big gulp at the gas station. Fountain drinks can contain up to 49g of added sugar per serving. The worst part about that is that sugar adds a lot of calories but doesn't actually make you feel full.
When it comes to exercising and losing weight, everyone has their own idea of what will work best to get rid of that extra body fat. For some time, it has been commonly accepted that if you want to lose fat you do cardio, and if you want to gain muscle you do weight training. While cardio is important for your cardiovascular system, weight training will actually produce a higher caloric burn than straight cardio will.
One of the many products we have in our Appleways line is our Mini Vanilla Wafers, and they are great for adding to a variety of classic snacks for some extra flavor and nutrition.
Carbohydrates are one of our macronutrients, and it's very important to get the right amount and from the right sources. For some time carbs were viewed as bad for our bodies, and"no or low carb diets" were all the craze.
Breakfast is important, that's something that will likely never change. It's the first meal of the day, and it's a big factor in your energy levels for not only the remainder of the morning, but for the rest of your day.
