Wellness Wednesday Recipe Winners
We hope to see others taking big strides toward their health and wellness goals this summer and beyond!
They believe in a wellness and sustainability-driven lifestyle. At the onset of the pandemic, when accessibility to goods and services was dramatically reduced, Mario and his wife transitioned to purchasing the majority of their produce and meat directly from local organic farms.
The Pratas believe that we are all a product of what we consume mentally and physically, and strive to consistently nourish their family in healthy ways. Since Mario and his wife Katelyn are subject to varied shifts, it is important to them to maximize the limited time they have all together with their three children.
The Pratas are fitness club members where they enjoy family workouts and fitness activities. Yoga is also something that the Pratas try to incorporate into their lifestyle. Through Katelyn’s yoga certification, she learned about physical movement and mindfulness which the Pratas believe in practicing with their family. 💗
The Leyrer family also submitted beautiful pictures of their completed Braised Chicken Chestnut recipe (see cover photo).
Mark says “since about a month ago I have been actively trying to eat healthier so that is why I made the conscious decision to serve it with lettuce instead of something like mashed potatoes or rice. I am not following any specific diet but this recipe looked good for targeting lower carbs, low calories, low salt… all good for blood pressure, blood sugar, and body weight!”
We look forward to seeing more photos of this week’s upcoming challenge recipe – Dan Dan Noodles with Spinach and Walnuts!
Other families have been asking if this challenge will continue into the following weeks. We’re so happy to see so much interest and participation that we have decided to keep the challenge going!
