    The Youth Salad

    Written by: Tatiana Vicol

    So, what's the deal with the Phytonutrients? These are compounds found in plants, nutrients that protect the plant from UV radiation. Pretty smart, right? Multiple studies have shown that just as in plants, these smart chemicals have the ability to combat free radicals in the human body. A free radical is a molecule missing an electron. When these molecules are cruising around your DNA or other cell membranes they steal electrons from them through a process called oxidation. Aging, cancer, cell mutation, immune function damage, heart disease, and much more are all influenced by your body's ability or antioxidant availability to combat these nasty cruisers.

    Nutty Butter Squash Bake

    Written by: VEGA

    Quality fats give our bodies energy. Coconut oil and the omega-3 fatty acids found in nuts and seeds fuel our bodies from the inside out and keep our minds sharp for the demands of day-to-day life. Coconut oil contains a medium chain triglyceride that is easily digested prior to exercise (similar to a carbohydrate), but sustains energy well, due it to being a fatty acid.

    Fully-loaded Spring Samosas

    Written by: Sarah Britton

    "When I decided that I wanted to make samosas this week, the one thing stopping me was the dough. Just thinking about out how to make it thin, flaky and crispy without deep-frying it, and hopefully gluten-free without any weird ingredients was enough to make me throw in the towel before even hitting the cutting board. I knew that I was entering into a multi-attempt recipe project, and that made me want to lay down and take a big ol' nap, when all I wanted was to bite into a hot and spicy, crispy samosa. Oh, life is hard." - Sarah Britton, My New Roots
