B4BC Team Rider and Tasty Tuesdays Guest Chef Elena Hight is back just in time for Thanksgiving with an amazing recipe for us using tart and tasty cranberries! Cranberries are a great source of vitamin C, fiber, and full of antioxidant power with flavonoids. And don’t forget to go ORGANIC!
We recently wrapped up our 4th Annual Check One, Two Campus Tour, whereas we hit the road for a month making stops at 16 campuses. The B4BC educational outreach experience activated in high-trafficked areas of campus, providing preventative health information to students while partnering with campus departments & clubs for year-round distribution of wellness materials that highlight the benefits of early detection and a healthy, active lifestyle.

Add a taste of fall to your day with a super food packed salad! Roasted sweet potatoes are the perfect way to not only add a punch of flavor to your salad but a whole lot of vitamins as well! Sweet potatoes are full of antioxidants and contain the disease preventing vitamins A, C, and E. They also help to keep a healthy heart, being rich in B6 vitamins, while their high fiber content makes them a great source of energy! In addition to sweet potatoes this fall salad contains 9 other super foods— making it the perfect way to keep full, healthy, and energized all day long!
Our friends at Goofy Foot Foods have come up with another super easy, super delicious recipe for us at B4BC! They take 5 minutes to make and they’re no-bake, which means you can whip them up and take them out on the hill as a power food for a day of snowboarding!
So as it turns out, the sweet treats that we love to trick-or-treat for on Halloween are full of chemicals, trans fats, preservatives, petroleum-based artificial colors and…dun dun dun…GMOs. How’s that for scary?!
TEAM RIDER // Sage Erickson #regram today from #TeamB4BC surfer @sageerickson, sporting her #pinkribbon for #October! Sage and our entire team of B4BC athletes are year-round role models of living a healthy, active lifestyle as a means of #breastcancer prevention! #behealthygetactive
We love October for SO many reasons, but one of them is P U M P K I N S! With Halloween right around the corner, get fired up with these delicious Pumpkin Bars sweetened only with honey from our favorite kitchen fiend, Team B4BC snowboarder Elena Hight!
PAUSE FOR PREVENTION // Don’t Smoke! This week at our #CampusTour stop at #CSUFullerton we took a tip from Tuffy the Titan! Smoking harms nearly every organ of the body, reducing your health and causing or contributing to several types of cancers. Did you know it can also limit a woman’s options for treatment and breast reconstruction? Make positive choices for your health: don’t smoke, and quit if you do! #behealthygetactive
Mixing Greek yogurt and berries is pretty much the perfect snack packed with protein, fiber and antioxidants, not to mention that sweet and creamy fix for your sweet tooth! This is too easy not to try, and soon to be a staple in your snack rotation. Plus, it’s healthier than your usual froyo run (yogurt + berries are just made for each other<3)!
