One of the best parts about traveling is the feeling of exploring new and unexplored terrain. And what better way to immerse yourself in an experience than with a food trip?Indeed, food can bring you closer to the heart of any culture.

Every day people are exposed to hours of artificial light from a variety of sources – computers, video games, office lights and, for some, 24-hour lighting in hospitals and nursing homes.

As the warm, sunny days of summer wane, you might find it more challenging to eat a variety of colorful fruits and vegetables.

Stick with your nutritious habits during the next few months to maintain a healthy weight, prevent colds and illness, and stay energized through the fall and winter.
