Live Well Aztecs: Leading the Way to Well-Being
Here at SDSU, leading an active, engaged and balanced life is not only fun, it’s rewarding! The Live Well Aztecs initiative is a campus wide collaboration that combines many resources in order to promote health, wellness and well-being for students, faculty and staff.
To further promote health and wellness, Live Well Aztecs has teamed up with SDSU Dining to allow making healthier choices easy! Food items labeled, “Live Well Aztecs Approved”, allow you to identify healthier choices such as foods that contain 100% whole grain, have lean protein (including seafood), as well as foods that are a good source of fruits and veggies and low in sodium, added sugars and saturated and trans fats.
The “Live Well Aztecs Approved” label can be found at various places on campus including, Starbucks and the Aztec Markets.
It can be easy to overlook your nutrition with the many other priorities and responsibilities you have as a college student. But nutrition impacts many parts of your life, including mental alertness, brain functioning, and physical well being and stamina. Attend a workshop to learn how to fit healthy eating habits into your daily routine!
