Vernon - Okanagan Women’s Expo - Oct 1 & 2, 2022


Wellness Tip
Climbing
According to our fitness experts, a 150-pound person walking on a flat surface at 4 miles per hour burns roughly 4.7 calories/minute. Stair climbing burns more, from 8-12 calories per minute. Next time, try an experiment; take the stairs instead of the elevator! Every stair counts - only 5 stairs to the calorie. Not interested? Continue to walk; it's good for you too!

Recipe
Roast Turkey Roll Stuffed With Fruit, Nuts and Camembert Stuffing
Category: Holiday Recipes
Description: Holiday Dinner all rolled into one.
There are about 32g of protein in a 4-oz. serving of turkey, making it a very good source of these essential amino acids. Just one serving of turkey provides 65 percent of your recommended daily intake of protein.
Protect Yourself From Cancer. A little-known health benefit of turkey is that it contains trace minerals thought to aid in cancer prevention. Turkey contains selenium, which is essential for the healthy function of the thyroid and immune system. Selenium also has an essential role to play in your antioxidant defense system, helping to eliminate cancer-friendly free radicals in the body. Get Your B Vitamins. Turkey is considered a good source of vitamins B3 and B6, rated because of the density of these vitamins in the meat. A serving of turkey meat has 36 percent of the daily allowance of B3 and 27 percent of your recommended intake of B6. Benefit From Less Saturated Fat. Saturated fat is necessary for biological functions, hormone production, padding for organs and energy. While saturated fat is necessary for a healthy body, most moderately-active people need to avoid overindulging. Turkey has under 12 percent of the recommended daily allowance of saturated fat per 4-oz. serving.
Choose Organic, Pasture-Based Turkey
Grass-fed turkey raised under organic conditions convey the most health benefits. Grass-fed turkeys offer higher nutrition and are superior to birds given antibiotics or raised without access to natural pasture. Consider looking for a local, grass-based poultry farm when shopping for organic turkeys.
