We loved this recipe and wanted to share it with you– and in return we were asked to share this interesting information about bingo and its’ benefit to health!  So here it is…

Although bingo is beneficial to mental health, a lifestyle without any form of physical activity can take a toll on your body. A sedentary lifestyle can increase your risk of diseases like cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease and obesity. To avoid being a couch potato, it’s essential to exercise regularly. The good news is that the type of exercise you can engage in doesn’t have to be rigorous. Simple activities like walking and cycling can do wonders for your physique.

It goes without saying that in addition to exercise, a nutritious diet also plays a major role in maintaining a healthy body. Nowadays, food is packed with preservatives that can be harmful to the body. Some companies take initiatives to provide a wide variety of preservative-free food. In fact, a popular British supermarket has eliminated preservatives from all their food products. Iceland Foods, sister company of online bingo portal Iceland Bingo is freezing their food products to ensure the natural preservation of vitamins and minerals that may be lost during the harvest, transport and storage of fresh goods.

You too can take charge of your health and improve your lifestyle through exercise and diet, Here is a recipe of Vegan, Gluten-Free Brownie with Dates, Coconut and Figs that you can snack on while playing online bingo:
