Thank you for your interest in the 2014 IC A Healthy Me - 30 Day Summer Challenge Series. This year we have an option of two challenges that you can pick from or participate in both. 

Challenge One: Summer Salad Summon

We are what we eat! Lean protein and whole fruits, vegetables, legumes, and nuts all provide vital nutrients to power us through the day, keep the body healthy, and decrease fatigue. Green salads can contain a mixture of any these food groups and may even contain whole grains such as couscous, quinoa, brown rice or whole wheat pasta. We summon you eat three salads every week in order to reap the benefits associated with this power meal!
