Through Dryuary and Beyond!

Through Dryuary and Beyond!

Whether or not you’re going for a full Dryuary, after the indulgences of the holidays and New Years, few things are more appealing than something clean, cool, and nutrient rich to sip on.

Jar Salad - Simple, Nutritious and Oh So Good!

Jar salads are exactly that, salads in a jar. These really are a fantastic way to make sure you get a boost of healthy veggies in your day and they are so simple to make. A great suggestion is to put cooked quinoa at the bottom and layer the veggies such as shredded beets and carrots, slivered almonds and raisins then finish it off with some crisp lettuce. It is best to keep the dressing to the side and to add it into the jar right before eating. Get creative and enjoy this simple way to eat more of your vegetables!

Combating Oxidative Stress: Healthy From the Inside Out

Oxidation is a normal process by which our body uses oxygen (hence the term oxidation) for energy metabolism.  During virtually every cell function, including the creation of ATP (our body’s energy currency) electrons are passed back and forth between atoms. Free radicals are formed as a by-product of these reactions.  Free radicals are atoms with unpaired electrons which are highly unstable and short lived.  That being said, the damage from free radicals is self-perpetuating.

The Choice is in Your Hands

When we are at the grocery store, the market or the farm gate we have a choice – organic or not, in-season or greenhouse grown, local or imported, transitional or conventional.  Your choice may be driven by cost, seasonality or taste, it might be guided by your support of local growers or by the protection of your health and the environment.  Whatever the reason, the choice is in your hands!  My suggestion is to make the decision which will optimize your nutrient intake and minimize your toxin load.  Buying local, in-season produce and organic products protects your inner environment and the outer environment too.
