Eureka Farm in eastern Washington. It's a big, hearty salad, full of
fresh herbs. And with its yogurt-based dressing it manages to be
light and sprightly, too."

Food Tips of the Week
Dieting made easy
When deciding on a weight loss program, it is essential to try to restrict your intake of salt, fat and refined carbohydrate.
The argument against reduced carb diets
Its popular as hell, but it is really safe for you?
Increased consumption of animal-based products may lead into elevated consumption of saturated fat and cholesterol, which most authorities believe will increase the chance of coronary problems.
Most of the undesirable side-effects stated, like feeling tired, bowel disorders, or bad headaches seem to be only temporary, but critics contend that low carb diets are not without permanently harmful side effects.
Foods containing lycopene
(includes apricots, red peppers & baby jackfruit)
Lycopene is a natural compound and one of the same family of phytochemicals as carotene. Lycopene is behind the red color of quite a few fruits and vegetables.
Usefully, unlike numerous nutritional compounds, it does not become less effective if cooked but is observably increased in efficacy by the cooking process.
Lycoprene's main advantage is that it works as an antioxidant and is believed to be of use in the fight to lower the chances of developing cancer.
Lycopene is the strongest quencher of singlet oxygen, which is correlated with skin aging. It is also thought to impede the progression of diseases affecting arterial blood vessels.
