Healthy Living Facts

Foods that don’t expire contain unnatural preservatives, additives, and chemicals that deteriorate your body. Focus instead on fruits, vegetables, lean meats, whole grains, low-fat dairies, and above all, moderation in whatever you eat.

  1. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day because it feeds your body and mind with the necessary nutrients and energy to function throughout the day. Eating breakfast regularly will also help keep weight off because it gets your metabolism going.
  2. Physical activity like aerobic exercise (walking, running), muscle strengthening (weightlifting), bone strengthening (jumping rope), and balance and stretching activities (yoga, Pilates, dancing) are especially beneficial to a healthy body.
  3. One can of soda contains 10 teaspoons of sugar, and the average American adult drinks 500 cans of soda every year, estimating about 52 pounds of sugar consumed in soft drinks alone.

Months that begin on a Sunday will always have a Friday the 13th in them.

July Recipe: Chicken Alfredo Baked Penne  

Ingredients:

  • 1 box (16 oz.) penne pasta
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 uncooked chicken tenders (not breaded), cut into chunks
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 bag (12 oz.) Green Giant Valley Fresh Steamers frozen broccoli cuts, thawed
  • 2 jars (16 oz. each) alfredo sauce
  • 2 cups (8 oz.) shredded mozzarella cheese

Directions:

  1. In a large pot of water, cook the penne pasta until al dente as directed on the box. Drain and return pasta to the pot.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the oven to 350°F. In a 10- to 12-inch nonstick sauté pan or skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the chicken and season with salt and pepper to taste. Cook five to seven minutes or until the chicken is no longer pink in the center.
  3. Add chicken to the drained pasta. Add broccoli and toss until all ingredients are evenly distributed. Pour the alfredo sauce over and stir.
  4. Pour mixture into an ungreased 13×9-inch (3-quart) ceramic or glass baking dish, and spread evenly. Sprinkle the shredded mozzarella cheese evenly over the top.
  5. Bake 18 to 20 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the mixture is bubbly.

Have a Successful Summer with CA!

With summer in full swing, you might be finding yourself with some extra time on your hands. Summer can be an amazing time to have fun, enjoy trips and activities, attend baseball games, go to a farmers market, and much more. But summer can also be perfect for gearing up professionally! Check out some of the following tips on how you can give yourself the “Campus Advantage” above your peers this summer:

  • Visit your campus’s career center. Since it’s summer, they are often less busy and can give you individual support for updating your resume or prepping you for an upcoming interview.
  • Log in to your resident portal and take advantage of the numerous resources in the Campus Advantage Career Success Portal!
  • Even if you don’t absolutely need a job this summer, consider finding a low-key part-time position that could provide you with some extra resume experience. Consider positions with transferable skills that would benefit your major.
  • Find a new volunteer opportunity or organization to join that fits a hobby of yours or helps others. Giving back looks great on your resume, makes a difference, and makes you feel good at the same time!
  • Hard to believe that shopping can help your professional game, but stores often have sales on business wear during the summer. Check out the racks to see if you can find a few classic interview-appropriate pieces for the fall.
  • Stop by the management office and let them know what kind of events they could host this summer/fall to help make you successful!
