STRONG Saturday


The weekend is a great opportunity to log extra steps – think of it as putting steps in your “bank”. The days you fall short of your goal, you can pull from your bank. There are three great opportunities to crush your daily step goal this Saturday, September 15th:

8 a.m.                   5K Training for the Harbin Hero Hustle (runners and walkers)

9 a.m.                   Walk with a Doc

10 a.m.                 Hike to Health

All three events will meet in the Bridgepoint Plaza parking lot in Downtown Rome. In the event of inclement weather, please check the Harbin Clinic and HarbinSTRONG Facebook pages for updates.

7 Simple Recipe Swaps to Save Your Tried-and-True Favorites

A dietitian’s advice for making those old standbys healthier

Marcy Pugliese, Registered Dietitian for HarbinSTRONG, adds a few additional tips:
-Full fat coconut milk is still a very high saturated fat and sugar and should be used sparingly. (110 calories in 1/3 cup Coconut cream is 130 calories and 22g sugar in 2 Tbsp.) Skim milk will provide 30 calories and 100mg calcium – not found in coconut milk.
-Avocado great fat choice and substitute for Mayo. Realize your portion sizes shouldn’t change to get the benefits before eating a whole avocado.
-If you are looking to increase omega 3s in your diet, reach for salmon not beef. A 3.5-ounce serving of grass-fed meat averages about 80 milligrams of omega-3s—twice as much as regular beef. The same size serving of salmon has 1,000 to 2,000 milligrams of omega-3s.
