When it comes to food and health, there is a ton of debate on what and how to eat … but the one thing almost everyone agrees on is that fresh veggies and fruits rule. There are many reasons why, from healthier people to a healthier planet, and now we have “moodbooster” to add to the list. An Australian study in 2016 found increasing veggies and fruits by 8 servings/day made people happier. How much happier? The same amount as going from not having a job to gainfully employed (HUMONGOUS!).
Let’s celebrate our happiness-inducing veggies and fruits with a #GreatBigCrunch, a Foodshare event now in its 11th year.
When: Thursday, March 1, 2018 at 2:30pm EST – but you can crunch anytime.

Share: your crunch photos/videos (sound high!) using #GreatBigCrunch (If you’re at UHN, use #GreatBigCrunch #UHN and we’ll retweet you for days).
Register: with Foodshare so every crunch counts.
Who & Where: Anyone can participate anywhere across Ontario: workplaces, schools, outside or at home … perhaps not in a sterile operating theatre, but pretty much anywhere else is game. Help make noise for food literacy and a national school food program.

Biking regularly can help you get in shape, feel better, improve your health, and it’s just plain fun! Check out this TED Talk about the awesome ways that biking can change you.
