Eat Well with Ballet Austin
Food is fuel; fuel to power your body and your brain. Healthy food will help you feel better, boost your immune system and fight infection.
With so much information out there about nutrition, it can be challenging to know where to start and what to believe when it comes to food!
Yet your food choices affect all areas of your health. Your health affects how you feel. How you feel is important for overall well-being. We follow the science when it comes to nutrition and hydration. From the science we will share food facts and helpful resources, and hope to encourage and inspire with quotes, practical tips, and more.
Let’s start by thinking of food as fuel; fuel to power your body and your brain! It can boost your immune system and fight infection. Everybody is different, but each one of us can benefit from learning basic nutrition principles and following simple, actionable tips.
We love good food and sharing healthy recipes; food and recipes that are healthy but taste great; cooking that everyone can enjoy. Please share your favorites recipes with us and we will feature them! Email your recipe ideas to firstname.lastname@example.org
During the month of May we will highlight Mental Health Awareness Month, Older American’s Month, and National Strawberry Month and the delicious power of strawberries! Visit our pages and discover how each can affect your well-being.
