Other films represented in the exhibit are The Duchess and The Danish Girl, along with television series including the blockbuster Emmy-winning hit “Downton Abbey.”

Smoothie: A smoothie is a great way to get your fruit servings in. Fruit is an important part of a healthy diet) Combine your favorite berries and a half a cup of plant milk for a healthy, antioxidant rich breakfast.
Green Juice + a handful of nuts: A great breakfast for those who aren’t hungry in the morning. Green juice is rich in nutrients and the healthy fat from the nuts will sustain your energy and help you absorb the fat soluble vitamins.
