Not only has research shown that this organic smoothie might reduce fatigue and stress, recent studies prove that the powerful antioxidants and phytochemicals in blueberries may improve cognitive function as well. For an extra “umph”, try adding some walnuts! Rumor has it that walnuts contain essential fatty acids that support the development of brain cells and neurotransmitters. Get hip to this drink and give your body some unforgettable nutrition! Here’s the recipe:

INGREDIENTS
1 cup fresh-pressed apple juice
1 fresh ripe banana
1 1/2 cups frozen blueberries
1/2 cup frozen raspberries
1/4 cup raw walnuts, preferably soaked and drained

DIRECTIONS
Combine the apple juice and banana in a blender. Add the blueberries, raspberries, and walnuts. Blend until smooth. #PrettyGirlsSweat #PGS #Nutrition #Health #Food #Metabolism #CleanEating #healthy #body #Health #instafit #motivation #Smoothie #HowardUniversity #HU | written by: PGS Howard University ambassador Gemilath, 19 (@gmamafunk)

Encouraging us to “cook nice” and enticing us all with his delicious creations, @ChefSamTalbot is leading the Sustainable Living movement. As a chef, author, and television personality (you may recognize him from the hit show “Top Chef”), Chef Sam is encouraging everyone to break down the wall between the way we eat and the way we live, and to keep the circumstances at which our food is prepared at the forefront of our minds. This perspective, along with his diabetes diagnoses at the young age of 12, contributes greatly to his unique recipes and personal cooking style.  Chef Sam also recognizes the importance of staying physically active in conjunction with eating right, as his hobbies include snowboarding, surfing, and practicing yoga. To check out his recipes or to get more information on his book “The Sweet Life: Diabetes Without Boundaries” you can visit his website samtalbot.com. written by: Howard University PGS ambassador Tamara Hendley, 21 (Twitter: @Nt2DayButTamara) #PGS #Nutrition #ChefSamTalbot #CleanEating #SustainableLiving #Diabetes #CookNice #HealthyTeens #PGSHowardU #HowardUniversity #HU

DURING SCHOOL SNACK | Do you always have the mid-day munchies during class but you don’t want to overindulge in junk food? Prepare a fruit salad in the morning to enjoy during the day. Fruits high in vitamin C (kiwi) and fruits with water (watermelon) have been proven to speed up your metabolism so that you don’t ruin you appetite during lunchtime. #nutrition #freshfruit #afterschoolsnack #sweatsisterhood #healthyeatinghabits #eatclean #PGSTempleU #templeuniversity |Written by: Temple University PGS Ambassador Andréa, 21 (@_femmefataledre_)
