A Taste of What is to Come

A fresh take on Lake Superior water 

(as if it wasn't fresh enough)

Fruit infused water at the Dining Center!
Brand new this week is fruit infused water in the Dining Center! It may not feel like spring outside but this delicious (& healthy) beverage will give you some hope the spring is around the corner. You can thank Executive Chef Tom Linderholm for this addition, and the Dining Center staff for keeping the water flowing.

Did you know Duluth won the Best Water in Minnesota? Yes, I whole-heartily agree.

Soda, sports drinks and even 100% juices are loaded with sugar that do not serve our bodies. Filling up on foods and beverages full of sugar could prevent you from eating other more nutritious foods, there by missing out on important vitamins and minerals. Check out the Mayo Clinic's take on added sugars.

Keeping yourself well hydrated with water allows your body to be at its best! Both physically and mentally. Make this simple, healthy swap at your next meal.

Cheers to great tasting water & better health.
