  3. EVERGREEN PICNIC Activity postponed for Sunday, December 1 Healthy Habits, Healthy Life – An activity on better nutrition for a happier lifestyle---Let's go bicycling! We think people need to eat healthy in order to stay healthy. And based on that concern, we are thriving so hard to integrate all sorts of health improving elements that can help you introduce yourself to a healthier lifestyle and therefore a happier life. We also add fitness to it. This time, the Watermelon Punch team has prepared for you a special and rewarding picnic, one in which you will come to enjoy 'green' at its best. When we say green, we mean it. We are inviting you to come to learn how to appreciate nature and what it offers to you in a more significant way. To achieve that we will bring you to XiangHu. One of the best ways to enjoy healthy life is by eating and drinking green. Green means being organic in every possible way. This natural way of living is essential to adapt for the demanding environment, where everyone is exposed to air pollution and other environmentally unfriendly elements. In the Mornings or any other times of the day, you can help to protect yourself from the harm of modern city life. Then let us get out of the city for a while, and let us reignite our bodies and minds with a green natural scenery and nutritious green smoothies, as well as other foodies with additional value. One juice or smoothie a day - made from green vegetables such as kale, cucumber, celery, and spinach - works wonders for organ health, immune system strength, and weight loss. What will happen at the Evergreen Picnic? The Watermelon Punch team will have prepared for you a kilt, green smoothies, and foodies. You will learn the benefits of a evergreen lifestyle.
