Winter Weather Health and Fitness Tips

If last weekend’s Snowpocalypse, courtesy of Jonas, is any indication of weather for the remainder of winter, we may find ourselves less mobile and more apt to be lounging around. All of that time spent being a couch potato, watching movie marathons, and the comfort (junk) food that comes with it may leave us with a few too many extra pounds when swimsuit season rolls around. No worries, because Team TME has you covered with delicious recipe picks from Amanda Foti, Senior RD of Selvera Wellness and simple exercises to keep you on track -- even during a blizzard -- from SWERVE Fitness Instructor, Jason Tran.

Yummy and healthy snacking isn’t as difficult as you’d think, but you will need to plan ahead and hit the store before the winter weather hits. A good rule of thumb is keeping keys ingredients on hand so that when the urge to snack hits, you’ll have everything that need!
