Snack Like a Pro!
Cavs Guard Shaun Livingston Talks Healthy Eating with Students for Fit as a Pro Program
The Cleveland Cavaliers do a lot to stay in shape and to lead healthy lives on and off the court, and healthy eating is top of the list! As part of the Cleveland Cavaliers Fit As A Pro program presented by Medical Mutual and Giant Eagle, Cavs guard Shaun Livingston and Assistant Strength Coach Derek Millender stopped by the Cleveland Clinic Wellness Institute with 3rd graders from Royalview Elementary to discuss the importance of eating healthy and share tips on choosing healthy snacks.
The Cavs were joined by the Wellness Institute’s Executive Chef Jim Perko and Program Manager Amy Jamieson-Petonic to quiz the students’ knowledge of ways to eat healthy and teach the youngsters how they can substitute the “bad” food they eat for “good” alternatives.
After all the talking, everyone got to tasting! Shaun and Derek helped Chef Perko make bright green-colored smoothies for everyone using fruits and vegetables. Each of the students enjoyed their fair share of the healthy concoction and received a copy of the recipe so they can make the special treat at home and share it with their families.
