Healthy Tips & Trivia

I’ve always been a big fan of trivia.  I’ve learned the most interesting little bits of info by following along with all kinds of trivia.  And, yes… I’ve always been a big fan of Trivial Pursuit. Loved to play it and still would if I could find someone that would play along with me.  My family doesn’t find it near as much fun as I do!

You would be amazed at all the types of trivia you can find.  Anything from the completely mundane to more serious and important topics.  Even health related!

If you like trivia as much as I do, then you’ll love this list below.  Along with the trivia, I’ve also thrown in some good tips to know, but most of these are just fun trivia.  Maybe you can see if you can pick out the tips from the trivia?
