Montana Meals March Challenge:  Make a MyPlate Meal

For this month’s challenge, build a meal that resembles the MyPlate icon: 1/4 of your plate filled with lean protein, 1/4 filled with grains, and 1/2 filled with fruits and veggies.  Take a photo, tell us what it is, and email it to us at wellness@montana.edu with the Subject line March Meals.  Check out www.choosemyplate.gov for tips and guidance on building a healthy plate, and stay tuned for a blog post with a few photo examples from your MUS Wellness Team.

Montana Moves March Challenge:  Register for a race or event in your community

Warmer weather is around the corner, and with it comes plenty of opportunities to get outside and participate in active events in your community.  Whether it’s a 5K, Half-Marathon, Bike ride, XC Ski race, or Fun Walk, now is the time to get it on your calendar and start training for it!  Plus, a lot of races and events have early-bird registration prices if you plan ahead!  To participate in this month’s challenge and be eligible to win, email us at wellness@montana.edu with the Subject line March Moves, and simply give us the name and location of your event, and for extra credit, some details about why you’re doing it.  To help you out, here are a couple of links to active events here in the Treasure State; or you can check out your local running, bike, or ski shop, and they’ll know what events are happening in your community.
