Lesson 2 – FUEL

Students engaged in a game of “Eat More, Eat Some, and Eat Less”, applying the lessons they learned about “fueling in the green” (i.e. focusing mostly on items below the green line) and principles adapted from the University of Michigan’s Department of Integrative Medicine’s “Healing Foods Pyramid”, and concluded the lesson by learning how to make a "Green Slime" smoothie


Lesson 3 – RECOVER

Students at ICS learned about the third leg of the balanced stool….Move – Fuel – Recover, and how only when we give our bodies and brains a proper balance of Recover (sleep, rest, recovery) can we be at our best!  We learned about the importance of sleep quantity (number of hours) and quality (sleep cycles) as well as other ways to tap into our very best recovery strategies including “metered” and diaphragmatic breathing tactics!
