Dear 16-year-old me,

Seasonal Superfoods with Whole Foods

Posted by Jan Arrant on Oct 25, 2016 8:18:44 AM

When the weather turns chilly, I look forward to three things: pulling out my well-worn, favorite pair of boots, enjoying the glow of the fireplace, and making some soul-satisfying comfort food.  I’m sure you’re thinking a hearty bowl of chili or maybe Mom’s chicken noodle soup, but don’t forget your veggies.  Did you know fresh seasonal vegetables can actually help boost your immune system?  Superfoods, as they’re called, are nutrient powerhouses that pack healthy doses of antioxidants, polyphenols, vitamins, and minerals.  Not to mention, when you cook with in-season produce, you often get them at great prices because of the abundance of the crops.   Hungry yet?  Give these superfood recipes from our friends at Whole Foods a try.

Did you know one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer?  That’s a pretty scary statistic, especially for me, because I have a family history.  My maternal grandmother died of breast cancer when my Mom was just 10.  I wish I could have known my grandmother.  From the way my Mom has described her, it sounds like we would have had a lot in common.  I’m hoping breast cancer is not one of them.  That’s why when I heard about 3D mammography, I thought this is truly a break through and the next time I have my mammogram, I will definitely ask for 3D.
