Wellness Wednesday: DASH diet, FitBit Charge HR, Oatmeal and more

Many of you are likely trying to adopt healthier habits in 2015, so here are some motivational links to check out. Happy Wellness Wednesday!

  • I am excited to read The New Health Rules by Dr. Frank Lipman, and it just got added to my Amazon wish list. I found it in this article, which also mentions another book that interests me--Juice. Blend. Taste. 

  • Did you hear that the DASH diet was named best diet of the year? It stands for Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension. It's a diet rich in vegetables, whole grains and low-fat dairy. Basically, this is the diet I follow as a vegetarian. It just works for my body and medical needs. 
  • Oatmeal is back in the news as possibly being the key to a longer life. I can't always eat it first thing in the morning, but I have been eating it when I get to work lately with a little bit of peanut butter and it keeps me so full all morning!
  • Finally, I am super excited that the new FitBit Charge HR just came out yesterday! I'm probably going to buy the Charge HR and wait on the Apple Watch until it's 2nd or 3rd generation.
