Healthy Warrenville

healthy warrenvilleRecently I was approached by a Warrenville citizen who was interested in starting a group called Healthy Warrenville. Similar groups are making a difference in West Chicago and other nearby communities. We discussed the ins and outs of starting such a group in Warrenville and decided that a grass roots approach would be best!

Our mission is:
To increase healthy eating and physical activity in Warrenville to make our city one of the healthiest communities in the region.
Our goal is the have a calendar of events that citizens can check out and get involved with as they choose. These could be anything from walks, bike rides, and kayaking to healthy cooking classes, gardening groups, stress management, and more!
 
We needed a way to share the events with those in the community (Warrenville and nearby), so we created a Facebook group. This is a public group, so anyone who is invited, who has the link, or who stumbles across it is free to join us. As events come onto our radar, we will post them on our Healthy Warrenville Facebook Group. I invite you to  join this group, so that you can take advantage of these events, get healthier, and have fun in the process! Once you are a member, feel free to share it with friends and family who you think might also be interested. 

If you aren't on Facebook, you can also stay up to date with local events by subscribing to the newsletter "This Week in Warrenville", Sign up at warrenville.info, and events will come to your inbox each week.

If you are hosting or hear about an event that you'd like to share, you can post it on the facebook page as well. 

The more I learn about health, the more I learn that "community involvement" and "relationships"  are crucial factors for good heath. What a better way to get involved in the community and form real relationships with other like minded people.  My husband Jared and I decided to host a "Weekly Walk with the Docs" in order to meet people in the community, as we move our bodies.

Walk with the Docs

Starting on Monday April 23 at 9:00 am, my husband Jared and I are going to host a weekly "Walk with the Docs" event.  Come out and join us! The more the merrier. This will be every Monday morning at 9 am. We will meet at the gazebo near the prairie path (across from the Warrenville Libary). We will take a quick break around mid May-early June as we are settling in with the new baby, and then the Monday morning walks will resume. If you are in the Facebook Group, you will be able to see any last minute updates or changes to the schedule. 

If you live locally, join us so we can improve our health as individuals and the health of our city!

Happy Thanksgiving!

fruit  traay shaped like a turkey for thanksgiving

 

Over the past few years, we've come up with a Thanksgiving tradition to make a fun and healthy appetizer -- shaped like a turkey. Last year I shared a picture of a veggie turkey with you. Here is a fruit turkey!   Just google turkey appetizer platter and you'll get LOTS of ideas. For those of you that use pinterest, this would be another great place to find lots of healthy and creative ideas. It can be a fun kids activity too. Try it, take a photo and share it on our facebook page!

In case you are still looking for the good real food recipes for tomorrow, here is a link to a previous years post with all sorts of healthy recipes! 

Finally, I know it seems obvious, but I want to remind all of you to remember what you are thankful for this holiday season. I am thankful for my family, friends, health, and of course my patients! If there is someone in your life who you are thankful for, be sure to tell them. They will be happy to know, and it is incredibly healthy for you to express thankfulness as well. 

Have a happy and healthy holiday!

Happy Thanksgiving.

Dr. Jamie and Dr. Jared
