Fun in the Sun

Did you know that fresh air and sunshine is good for your health? As summertime comes into full swing, it is a great opportunity to get outside and enjoy the beautiful weather. Some benefits of being outside include:

  • Increased vitamin D. Sunshine causes the body to create Vitamin D which helps keep your bones and teeth strong, supports your immune system, brain and heart, and may even boost your mood! Vitamin D is found in some foods, but we get most of our Vitamin D from the sun.
  • Better concentration. Studies show that taking a walking break outside could improve your focus.
  • Reduced stress. Being out in nature has been shown to lower stress-causing hormones, and blood pressure and improve mood. This may be related to the free aromatherapy provided by trees and flowers.

Boost your health and make the most of your summer by trying these fun outdoor activities:

  • Take a walk on your lunch break or after dinner
  • Go kayaking
  • Pick berries or peaches at a local farm
  • Have a BBQ or picnic
  • Go for weekly bike rides
  • Plan a camping trip
  • Do yoga in the park
  • Head to the beach or pool
  • Play a round of mini golf
  • Shop at the farmers market
  • Go for a hike
  • Stargaze

  • Go fishing
  • Play volleyball, badminton or wiffleball
  • Start a garden

What our clients are saying

“Just want to take a moment to thank you for running such a great kitchen. It’s been a huge benefit to have such a delicious and various assortment of foods to choose from, all without having to leave the building. I’m always amazed at the daily variety and the quality of food that is offered. The cafeteria has made my food choices as easy as can be.”

“Thank You for once again going above and beyond to ensure that our programs are a success. Your willingness to customize menus as well as provide your expert guidance to develop a well-rounded selection of offerings is what keeps us coming back! The food is always exceptional! Our programs would not be a success without the CulinArt team!”

“Thank you and your staff for all the care and thought you give CSW adults and students. You approach events with such care and elegance- I don’t know how you do it! Especially day after day. Please thank all your staff for their wonderful work and kind manner with all of us. Here is to a great year!”

“I just wanted to send a quick note acknowledging the wonderful food and service provided by our new vendor.  The food was delicious and the students consistently commented on how amazing everything was.  What a difference! In addition, the staff and management were so easy to deal with – very professional.  They were punctual, responsive and attentive to our needs.  Thank you again for making a positive change to the quality of life of our students.”

“Thank you for including me today in the food waste demonstration/[chef competition] and flattering me with the role of “judge.” I will proudly don the [Stop Food Waste Day] apron the next time I plan an “event” in our own kitchen. I think this is a very worthwhile cause and the statistics you read off are staggering. They, alone, can intimidate a home chef, let alone be the “driver’ for a professional one.”

“I just wanted to give a huge compliment to the cook at Main Street. Today I had the Salmon Super Bowl and it was amazing!!!! Every day I go in there she always has something that looks too wonderful to pass up! Thank you for always having such a variety of food!”

“The dinner I had tonight at Forman was not only the best meal I have had at Forman in the entire time I have been here, it was the best meal I can remember having anywhere in a long time. [It] was a restaurant quality meal, and it added to the enjoyment that the two young ladies serving me could not have been more charming. What an energizing way to finish a weekend eating a dinner like that.”

“Even though we see challenges every day, each one of you rises to the occasion and makes it seem so easy. I cannot express how impressive it is to see you all work in such a fashion. You are true professionals.”

“What a difference a top chef makes to student satisfaction and enjoyment of campus life!  At a recent boarding school conference, food was mentioned as a key retention method and it is really true. The comforts of home are found in good food and meals enjoyed with friends. We couldn’t be more pleased with the healthy and delicious daily options presented by our chef and his team. Frank even has a suggestion box, so he is always open to new ideas and he even offers cooking classes for our students!”

“I hope you do the food service in heaven.”
