Montana Meals COTM: Break the Fast!
Many of you mentioned “eat healthier” as a goal for 2015. A good first step to achieving this goal is to eat breakfast on a consistent basis.
Studies show that people who eat breakfast on a regular basis have more nutritious diets, are less likely to overeat later in the day, are less likely to be overweight and have more energy throughout the day. Any food eaten as breakfast will count for this challenge; however, the best breakfasts are low in sugar and include a source of protein (i.e. yogurt, eggs, nuts/nut butter, milk, cheese, lean meat) to keep you fueled and going strong until lunch.
Take the Montana Meals February challenge to turn eating breakfast into a lifelong, healthy habit. Track your breakfast for the month of February, and shoot for a healthy breakfast at least five days a week! If you’re participating in the Incentive Program, just track online. If not, email your log to Cristin at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Montana Moves COTM: Make Tracks!
This challenge would be easier if it would actually snow. After an unusually warm and dry January for much of the state, we’re hoping February is a little more normal. Nevertheless, Montana Moves encourages you to get out, play, and share this month with our “Make Tracks” challenge. Whether it’s skis, snowshoes, boots, or wheels, go outside and make some tracks! Thinking about going snowshoeing for the first time or knocking the dust off those XC skis? Here’s your excuse. Dog tracks count as well!
To complete the challenge, and be entered into our monthly prize drawing, take a picture of your tracks, and use the hashtag #montanamoves on social media, or email your pic to email@example.com to be entered to win!
