Having a tough time consuming your recommended servings of fruit per day? Ever tried making a smoothie? Smoothies are a quick and easy way to fit in your daily recommended intake of fruits while enjoying a delicious sweet treat. All you need is a blender, some fruit, and some juice. The best part, you can hide other healthy foods in them too! My personal favorite smoothie is what I call the Tropical Island Smoothie. Here’s the recipe:

This Isn't Your Average 4th of July Hotdog Eating Contest...

Friday, March 4, 2011
By: Sarah Sceery

With even the basic nutritional knowledge, the thought of an eating contest might make you feel a little queasy. The idea of eating as many hotdogs as you can in a matter of minutes could almost give you a heart attack just thinking about it. Yet, right here on UNH campus there is one eating contest that actually takes a different approach. Annually, the Pan-Hellenic Sorority, Alpha Phi, holds their philanthropy event called “Eat Your Heart Out.” The event is designed with healthy foods in mind. The competition is a healthy eating contest between Greeks or any member in the UNH community.

Relax with Reiki

Wednesday, February 23, 2011
By: Katrina Heisler

We all have different techniques we use to relieve stress in our lives - working out, deep breathing, yoga…but I doubt many of you have heard of Reiki. This increasingly popular stress reduction technique is a Japanese practice that means “spiritually guided life force energy.” The idea behind the method is that there is an unseen energy that flows through our bodies. Low energy causes one to get sick or have a higher stress level where as a high energy allows one to live a happy, relaxed life. Reiki is a natural healing process that promotes peace and harmony within the mind and body.

It’s common for physically active individuals to hop off the treadmill right after a run or jump on a bike as soon as they get to the gym, especially these days when finding a machine at the UNH gym is like finding gold. However, in doing so, an essential part of your work out is lost. Many times, people tend to forget how important a warm-up (and cool-down) is for an effective and safe workout.

So before you’re kicking yourself over indulging in the luscious treat, relax, and pop another chocolate into your mouth or even use it to cook a delicious meal for you and a loved one!

What's Homework, Again?

Tuesday, February 15, 2011
By: Sarah Sceery

Unfortunately, that nice, long five-week break is over for college students. Gone (for the next four months) are the days of sleeping for as long as you wanted, going to the gym for as long as you wanted, and not having any lingering class projects hanging over your head. Returning to school and resuming classes after a long break can bring up mixed emotions.
