There are so many advertisements today about how to get brighter, whiter teeth, and who doesn’t want perfect pearly whites? From Crest 3D White mouthwash to the generic brands of whitening strips, the amount of money made off theses products is overwhelming. For 20 treatments of Crest 3D White Professional Effects white strips, it costs approximately $54! As a college student it may be difficult to find the extra money to get your teeth brighter, but luckily there are ways to prevent your teeth from stains and other erosion that may occur in your mouth!

Get Real UNH is a small student organization on campus but they have a big goal. Their mission is to have at least 20% of all UNH food be local, fair trade, friendly to the environment or humanely produced by 2020. In addition, they would like to create a community that cares enough about these criteria for food to act on it. What you probably do not know is that you may have already engaged yourself in Get Real UNH by going to the Local Harvest Fest. This was in inaugural event in their “Food Month”.

Let’s face it- autumn is almost here. It’s a sad realization that no longer will we be able to spend our days lying in the sand at the beach (slathered in SPF 50, of course, right?). Ahead are days of sitting in the library until all hours of the morning, squinting at notes under a fluorescent light. That certainly is not conducive to a great tan. While we can’t condone toasting yourself in the sun- which can lead to skin cancer, which can be deadly - there is one health benefit to sunny days spent outside.

The beginning of the semester is typically the easiest time of the school year to get involved with clubs and organizations on campus, as many of them are recruiting new members to join their ranks at this time. One fantastic organization to get involved with on campus is Slow Food UNH. This organization is one you can feel good about being a part of, as it caters to the food lover and humanitarian in all of us.

We learn about the food pyramid early in life so we already know how to eat a balanced meal. There are some foods however, that are better than others. These are called “superfoods”. These foods can help boost immunity, and decrease the risk of some diseases and cancers. Some can even fight wrinkles, improve memory, and help you lose and keep weight off! It sounds too good to be true, right? Well, it’s not. Foods really can have these effects on you, maybe not instantly, but they will make a difference when you incorporate them into your daily diet.

March is National Nutrition Month, so for everyone who made a New Years resolution to eat better but maybe hasn’t always stayed on track, ahem, myself, this is a great time to focus on “getting your plate in shape” . The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics created this annual educational and informational campaign to stress the importance of making healthy food choices and developing lifelong eating and physical activity habits.

With spring break only a few weeks away, I have seen the gym with a constant influx of students, faculty, and staff in determination to get their beach body ready. However, there is one catch. I tend to see these die-hard, rock hard ab go-getters at the Hamel Recreation Center on Mondays through Saturdays. So where are they on Sunday, you may ask?

Monday, February 20, 2012

Often vegetables have a stigma attached to them as being tasteless and unpleasant to eat.  Also, it can seem like a salad is the only way to get your greens for the day.  However, there are plenty of creative recipes that incorporate vegetables to provide the nutrients you need while still tasting delicious.  The first two include kale, one of the most nutrient rich greens, loaded with Vitamin K, Vitamin C, calcium and 5g of fiber.  Its antioxidant content provides some protection against cancer and its fiber content aids in lowering cholesterol.  These reci
