Did you know the FIRST ice hockey game in America was played in New Hampshire? It’s true! In 1883 at St. Paul’s School in Concord. It’s no secret that I love hockey. My cousins Spencer, Max, and Joey are hockey superstars (Go Spartans)! I’m a huge fan of high school hockey (Go Green Wave) and college hawkey (especially the Miami RedHawks, UNH Wildcats & Dartmouth Big Green).
So I was really excited to cheer on the Manchester Monarchs at their home opener on October 24th. It was an awesome game. The Monarchs beat the Portland Pirates 5-2. The Synchro Stars helped with the on-ice flag ceremony. We had a wonderful time at the game, dancing in the stands during the ice makes, trying to win prizes from the blimp, enjoying all the entertainment, and hanging with Max. It was a great team builder and tons of fun for our skating families.
The Miss New Hampshire Scholarship Program will be spending a day with the Manchester Monarchs during school vacation week on December 28th. Join Miss New Hampshire Megan Cooley and Miss New Hampshire’s Outstanding Teen Caroline Carter for the game at 3p. Tickets are just $20 and ticket orders are due by December 23rd. Email me at BeAwesomeKat@gmail.com for details. See you in Monarchs Country!

Today is National Eating Healthy Day, the perfect time to try new fruits or veggies like kiwis, beets, mango, sweet red bell peppers, cucumber slices, or edamame.
Most Americans only consume about half their recommended daily servings of fruits and vegetables. The American Heart Association recommends eating eight or more fruit and vegetable servings every day. For an average adult consuming 2,000 calories daily, that means about 4½ cups of fruits and vegetables a day.
Fruits and vegetables are high in vitamins, minerals, and fiber, and low in saturated fat and calories. Most fruits and vegetables also have no or little sodium, and eating a variety of fruits and vegetables helps control weight and blood pressure.
While heart disease and stroke are leading causes of death and disability for all Americans, more than 80 percent of risk factors for heart disease and stroke are preventable through behaviors like making better food choices, getting regular exercise, keeping a healthy weight and not smoking.
Be sure to celebrate National Eating Healthy Day with a rainbow on your plate. Try red, green, yellow, orange, and purple fruits and veggies to get the full spectrum of vitamins and minerals.
