What are antioxidants anyway? Most people understand that they’re beneficial to health, but may be unsure of what they are or how they work! Our cells need oxygen to perform vital tasks, such as transferring energy stored in food, or for powering our muscles. When our cells use energy, they produce a by-product of organic molecules known as free-radicals.  Unfortunately, these free radicals are damaging to our bodies.

The hearty green has received a lot of attention over the past few years. It’s one of my favorite foods, and I encourage everyone to make it part of their diet.

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.
