Staying Healthy: Cooking, Dancing & Gardening

By: Collette Vacations

Dance the Night Away

Do the Hula in Hawaii…stomp out the rhythm of folkloric dancing in Mexico (and wear a bright colorful skirt just for fun)…tango the night away in Buenos Aires, Argentina…move to the music at a salsa dance lesson at San Antonio’s Institute de Mexico…experience the song, dance and guitar of the flamenco, the national dance of Spain.

Cooking your way to a healthier you

  • Cook with olive oil.
  • Cut down meat portions, and increase portions of grains and legumes proportionately.
  • Eat more fish.
  • Eat more leafy green vegetables and salads.
  • Sit down for meals whenever possible, rather than eating on the run.
  • Choose whole grain breads and pastas instead of refined products.

Gardening – Reap what you Sow

What is more gratifying than arranging a lovely bouquet of cut flowers from your own garden or savoring the delicious flavors of colorful vegetables that you tended from seeds and picked fresh that day? Many Americans list gardening as a way to unwind and relax. Squatting, stooping and bending in the home garden are good for circulation and “playing” in dirt lowers stress levels and promotes a sense of well-being.
