At Professor Wellbody's Academy of Health & Wellness, we understand there's only one thing harder than making healthy behavior changes: Sticking to them! We all need a little help from our friends, and that's the purpose of the Wellbody Blog, a friendly online gathering spot--a community well--where you can dip into health news; wellness tips; recipes; latest research about nutrition, exercise, sleep and hygiene; plus, real stories from virtual neighbors who are also trying to change their lives for the better. Start from wherever you are; share ideas, information, inspiration. At Pacific Science Center, we believe each of us can do something everyday to improve our health and well-being.
Wellbody Recipe: Campfire Crunch
Even if the woods and tents are not in your stars this week, you can still whip up a healthy (and adorable) campfire with fruits, veggies, cheese and pretzels.
Check out this healthy outdoor-inspired snack that's easy to make and fun to eat -- another crafty Wellbody recipe from our friends at Bean Sprouts Café & Cooking School.
3-4 green grapes, sliced in half
3-4 red grapes, sliced in half
1 slice cheddar cheese
2-3 medium carrots, finely sliced
6 pretzel sticks, broken into pieces
Clap your hands and rub them together to get them nice and warm. Place the grape halves, cut side down, in a small circle, about the size of a cup.
Use clean scissors or rip the cheddar cheese to look like flames. Gently press the cheese flames together so they stand up. Place them in the center of the grape fire pit. lay the carrot pieces on the cheese, upright.
Place the pretzel pieces around the flames. Now sing a campfire song!
