Did you catch The Morning Thing on Monday 4/6/15?
Here are the topics we talked about on the show.
We shared some yummy recipes for your leftover Easter eggs.
Bacon Devlied Eggs
Easy English Muffin Egg Pizzas
We also found some new uses for dish soap.
It was also a GET HEALTHY Monday.
Studies show that when it comes to making decisions to improve your health, Monday is the day most people make those decisions. The Knox County Health Department and Get Healthy Knox County want you to think of every Monday as an opportunity to do something to improve your health.
Today is the start of National Public Health Week and this year’s theme is “Healthier Nation in One Generation.”
Americans believe they are the healthiest in the world… but we actually live shorter lives and suffer from more health problems than our peers in other high-income countries.
“Healthier Nation in One Generation” refers to the notion that today’s youth will not live as long as their parents because of health problems from not eating right or exercising regularly….. so we need to tackle this problem now for our kid’s sake – and ours. Here’s what we are dealing with: Americans eat the most calories and 2/3 of our population is overweight or obese….37 percent of U.S. adults eat vegetables less than once a day (instead of the recommended five!!)…Nearly 50% of Americans suffer from a preventable, chronic disease.
Creating the healthiest nation in one generation requires making healthy choices as individuals AND as a society. You can do your part by deciding to do improve your own health.
Whatever healthy thing you decide to do whether it’s eating more vegetables or getting some type of exercise every day or making an appointment to see your doctor for a check up – Make the decision to get started today…. it’s Get Healthy Monday.
