UPMC Body Changers launches new office routine

As a fitUnited partner UPMC Body Changers has now launched a ‘Fat Free Tuesday’ aka ‘Skinny Tuesday’ when everyone is asked to bring in a healthy salad or ingredient. It was a resounding success – greeted and consumed with great enthusiasm!

Items brought in included: Three kinds of homemade bread, jam and peanut butter; various salad greens – spinach, mixed greens; a fresh fruit salad; a fresh fruit bowl; oranges; clementines; raspberries, blueberries and strawberries; a jicama-cucumber salad; a celery root-arugula salad; shredded cheese; low-fat salad dressings; purple cabbage salad; shredded carrot salad; fresh cucumbers, celery, grape tomatoes, olives, pickles, carrots; chickpeas; croutons; dried cranberries; walnuts; hard-boiled eggs; sliced ham and sliced cheese. Yum!

Vicky March, of UPMC Body Changers says: "I am hoping we will keep doing this and that communal healthy lunches on the second Tuesday of each month becomes a tradition in my office!"

We say it sounds delicious - can we be invited next time?
