I truly believe that exercise IS medicine. I love the environment of Wildwood Athletic Club as it is more of a wellness center rather than a bodybuilding, powerhouse type of gym. I look forward to helping any current member with their questions about exercise and any prospective member about joining the club!”

Aw Nuts!

October 1st, 2017 | No Comments | Posted in Health and Wellness

We’re all on a constant search for quick, healthy snacks. Look no further than nuts, a small bite that’s packed full of protein and taste!

Either on their own or paired with your favorite fruit, all you need is a handful or about 1.5 ounces for a filling serving of fiber, vitamins, protein, minerals, and antioxidants.  You have tons of options but the healthier nuts are almonds, hazelnuts, peanuts, pecans, pistachios, and walnuts. Try nut butters if you aren’t looking for crunch, just remember to check the labels for low amounts of sodium and sugar, along with the best way to store your favorite spread.

Need a good recipe to kick start your new nut love? Check out the recipe for Chocolaty Spiced Nut & Cereal Crunch.
