Mix It Up is back for all University of Portland employees, according to Carol Welch, human resources. All you have to do is eat at least five servings of fruits and vegetables each day, in a variety of colors — there are more than 120 choices. Start or join a team of 4 to 10 coworkers and prepare your taste buds for adventure (team membership is not required to participate). Each day, try different kinds of fruits and vegetables and log them on the Mix It Up website.
Look for these important dates:
- Monday, January 21 to Sunday, February 17: Team formation: you need to start or join a new team for this second competition; previous teams will not carry over.
- Monday, February 18: Start recording activity.
- Sunday, April 14: Competition ends, but continue logging activity through October 14, 2013.
If you’ve already registered for Mix It Up, there’s no need to sign up again but you will need to form your new team for this second competition. You can download the Mix It Up app for the iPhone or Android from the App Store (http://tinyurl.com/a6uopok) or Google Play (http://tinyurl.com/ahq2wxk) and log your produce servings as you go.
