Quoi de prévu pour vous cette fin de semaine?😊
Happy Friday!!!! "It's never too early or too late to work towards being the healthiest you"
I don’t know about you, but I can’t stand the treadmill and I don’t enjoy distance running given the stress on my knees. Because of that, I find team sports or outdoor activities are the best way for me to get in some cardio, without feeling like I'm forcing myself to workout. And it’s so important to get that heart rate up at least a couple times/week to maintain good health over the long term.

Our Pretzel Bites are an elevated take on a classic. Not only are the pretzels delicious by themselves covered with warm garlic butter, but they come with a warm bacon beer cheese dip! Great appetizer for watching a game with a pint of beer in hand! 🥨
