Cauliflower is a cruciferous vegetable, in the same family as some better known superfood veggies like kale, broccoli and Brussels Sprouts. They are known for their anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant properties to fend off chronic disease and keep our bodies functioning at their prime! Sounds pretty good to me.

I have to admit, salads aren't always my first choice in the winter months but I have not been able to get enough of this one. It is definitely one that I will be transitioning into spring and summer. It pairs with pretty much anything. Seafood, steak, or even some grilled Haloumi cheese.

'Tis the season to make new year resolutions. For many, that often means vowing to commit to a new diet - again. And let's be frank, we certainly aren't restricted for choice of diets. The diet landscape is glutted with plans that promise rapid weight loss, yet fail to deliver.

As healthful as some oils can be, aim to consume whole foods as often as possible. Avocados are a perfect example. They offer much more than just their monounsaturated fats. They are also a wonderful source of vitamin C, potassium, vitamin K, as well as soluble fiber. All of these nutrients are absent in the extracted oil.

Vancouver has long been a vegetarian-friendly town. Back in 2010, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals named the city the sixth most veg-friendly city in North America and number one in Canada.

Fortunately, not all smoothies are unhealthy or dangerous -- in fact, green smoothies, when made with the correct vegetable to fruit ratio, along with healthy fats and plant proteins, not only provide greater nutrition than many common sit-down meals, but also serve as an easy, real-food alternative to many dubious prescription medicines.

Eating Less Meat Will Reduce Earth's Heat

Estimates of how much animal agriculture adds to greenhouse gases range widely, from about 14 to more than 50 per cent of total global emissions. Agriculture exacerbates climate change in a number of ways. Clearing carbon sinks such as forests to grow or raise food can result in net greenhouse gas increases. Farming, especially on an industrial scale, also requires fossil fuel-burning machinery, as does processing and transporting agricultural products.

This Roasted Beet And Kale Salad Is Even Tastier The Next Day

One thing I love about kale salads is that you can make a big batch to have for leftovers, and even dress it and the leaves won't go soggy. The leaves are much tougher than other greens, so I actually often like kale salads even better in the following days once the dressing has really soaked in and marinated the leaves.

One of the great pleasures of travel is, of course, the different food options that are available at different destinations. But for those travelling with food restrictions -- allergies, gluten-free, vegetarian, vegan or religious boundaries -- it requires some definite pre-planning.

I know, nobody wants to feel like a pain or an inconvenience to a restaurant or our dining partner. But the reality is that every time we cede to the salad, we are allowing people continue to believe that vegan food is dull, boring, tasteless and unfulfilling.

In North America, the most commonly-produced eggs are from battery-caged hens. These pitiful creatures live their whole lives crammed as many as five or six at a time into tiny wire cages, where they can barely move. This way they can't get any health-promoting exercise.
