Young people have always clarified the morality of our times. This sentiment was echoed throughout this past weekend as the student organization, Get Real! UNH, had the opportunity to attend the Second Annual Real Food Challenge “Breaking Ground” National Summit. The Real Food Challenge is a growing student movement working toward changing institutional purchasing power to create a more just and sustainable food system.

Organic foods and organic practices are receiving quite a lot of attention lately. I know I can't walk down the grocery store without seeing organic labels on food as well as advertising for "going organic" everywhere. Maybe you have no idea what being organic means and are interested in finding out, or maybe you already are an organic eater and want to spread awareness to others. Either way, those of you interested in eating organic or learning more about what it means to eat organically, this organization at UNH deserves your attention.

Are you a nutrition student who is itching to go abroad, but can’t seem to find a place for it in your busy schedule? This is a problem many nutrition students run into. Class scheduling is rigorous with the amount of classes nutrition majors have to take, and many times, students miss out on studying abroad because they feel like they have limited time.

Many people believe that the winter months are not conducive to growing vegetables. This incorrect notion is not only, but is preventing people from experiencing the wonderfully nutritious vegetables that are grown during these colder months.

Artichokes are a great source of Vitamin C, and they also help to aid in digestion. It is important to remove the thorns before consuming this vegetable.  Artichokes go great on salads, sandwiches, and almost everything else. They add a yummy, sweet and bitter flavor to any dish.

After getting home from class or work on a dark, chilly night why not warm up with a nice cup of hot chocolate? Hot chocolate can be a great treat to curb any sweet cravings plus you can add your own personal twist to it.

The presence of gluten-free foods has sky-rocketed across the nation and is causing some confusion. Some think that it can be used as a new fad diet, while others think that Celiac’s disease and gluten sensitivity are the same thing. First, let us determine what this “gluten stuff” actually is.

For my junior year, I decided to make the move to an off campus apartment instead of staying in the dorms. Other than having my own bedroom, the biggest perk is that I have a full kitchen now. No more two foot mini-fridge and nonexistent freezer. The transition from having a meal plan to cooking for yourself can be challenging, but it is certainly fun to learn how to cook. However there are some downsides as well, like the fruit flies that seem to never go away or last week's dinner rotting in your fridge.

Many people have the incorrect notion that you can’t find fresh vegetables and produce in the winter months that provide nutritious salads and other main dishes. Luckily, that idea could not be farther from the truth. In fact, many farmers are preparing right now for upcoming winter farmer’s markets in these next few months.

It's officially finals time! We're at the last stretch of our semester, but for most of us, the hardest part of our semester. I don't know whose idea it was to make the hardest part of our year the part where we are all mentally exhausted, but we just need to man up and get it done.

Have You Seen UNH's Wildcat Plate?

Everyone has heard of the dreaded "Freshman 15," however for me, it was more like the freshman 20. Coming to UNH as a freshman and having an unlimited dining plan made it super easy for me to eat WAY to much in our dining halls. Don't get me wrong, there are PLENTY of healthy choices to be made while eating on campus, but I just couldn't get over the delicious desert bar or the french fries that seemed to be there every single day.
