NATIVE NUTRITION | This summer I had the pleasure of being an intern at The Native American Women’s Health Education Resource Center. I discovered from the Natives that the popular fruit among their culture is Chokecherry. An interesting fact about Chokecherry is that in the past, Native people and settlers used chokecherry bark and roots to make sedatives, appetite stimulants and medicinal teas for treating coughs, tuberculosis, malaria, stomachaches and intestinal worms. Although the fruit is not used for these reasons presently, it is still widely consumed today and can be a great addition to ice cream, fruit salads, juices, cakes, baby foods, and pies. #Nutrition #Chokecherry #Fruit #HealthySnack #Sweatspiration #PrettyGirlsSweat #PGS #Sweat #SweatSession #Strength #StayFit #Toning #Exercise #Health #Instafit #Body #WeightLoss #Workout #HealthlyLiving #MotivationMonday #Motivation #Fitness #Fitspiration #Inspiration #HU #QT9 #Ogre15 #Onyx9 #Onyx10 I Written by: Hampton University PGS Ambassador Shanice (@love_shanice07)

QUESTION: What are your favorite healthy eating tips for eating out? My friends and I end up eating out a lot to get together. ANSWER: Eating out is one of my favorite pastimes. You aren’t the one cooking the meal nor the one cleaning up the mess afterwards and the icing on the cake is someone else brings your food to you hot and ready to eat – that’s the perfect combination to me! However, eating healthy while eating out can be a challenge. Dining out options tend to be higher in calories than a meal you would prepare at home. But just because you are calorie counting doesn’t mean you cannot enjoy a meal out with friends. Visit TeenDiaries.net for a few things to keep in mind as to not ruin your healthy eating regime. Visit our fitness section to see what our @PrettyGirlsSweat NY Ambassador (Crunch fitness trainer Courtney Alexander - @realsexxytomboy) had to say! #Nutrition #PrettyGirlsSweat #PGS #Sweatspiration #Fitspiration #fit #motivation #WeightLoss #CleanEating #healthy #body #Health #Fitspo #Sweatspo #Sweat #Exercise #Workout #Fitness #Fitspired #ToneUp #instafit #motivation #GymFlow #SweatSisterhood #SweatSisters #HealthyTeens #Black #July #SweatSorority #TeenDiaries

Whole foods and spices are nature’s medicine! Take a look at these very powerful painkillers that you can most likely find in your kitchen! And for athletes, particularly basketball players, there are plenty of things on this list that you can use to with common injuries. || Written by: Ari Melenciano, 21 (@ciazajira) #nutrition #natural #naturalmedicine #health #wholefood #fitness #prettygirlssweat
