Empowering Ouachita Baptist University Athletes to Fuel Their Personal Best!

I recently had the pleasure of speaking at the beautiful Ouachita Baptist University in Arkansas. The topic of the day was "Fueling for Your Personal Best." I would like to extend my deepest thanks to the folks at Ouachita Baptist University (OBU) for inviting me to share my knowledge and expertise with their students and staff.

One of the highlights of my visit was participating in the Cheerios Team Challenge. This fun and engaging event encourages students to enjoy a healthy snack without even knowing! The challenge involves eating a bite of Cheerios, taking a picture, and posting it with the hashtag #cheeriosteamchallenge. It was a great way to promote healthy eating habits in a fun and engaging way.
