You’ve heard it before; “Make sure you’re getting those antioxidants!” But what exactly is an antioxidant, and why are they so important?
As a Cell & Molecular Biology major, I have to admit that I geek out a little when it comes to learning about the human body on a cellular level. I find it so fascinating, and I have decided to start sharing more posts and info about what I’ve learned through my studies. I hope you guys enjoy the topics, and if there are specific things that you’d like to learn more about feel free to reach out and let me know!
For today’s post, I’m discussing antioxidants and explaining why we need these little free radical scavengers in our bodies! 🙂 Continue reading “Antioxidants: What They Are And Why We Need Them!”

More and more people are making the switch to vegetarianism these days, and if you are like me, you are constantly searching out quick and easy ways to get a protein rich meal. Protein has so many uses in our bodies, as it is an important building block for bones, muscles, tissues, and healing abilities. It is really an essential component for many biological processes, so vegetarian or not, it is important for us to ensure that we are giving our bodies what it needs to function efficiently!
A few years ago I was in the mood for something sweet after my workout, so instead of my go-to protein smoothie, I decided to try and make some healthy pancakes. Luckily it was a success, and I make them all of the time now! Continue reading “Quick, Easy, Delicious (and Healthy!) Protein Pancakes”
Consistently eating healthy is sometimes a hard thing to accomplish, but it’s really about finding the right balance for your body.
I have always been mindful of what I put into my body, but a couple of years ago I became a little too obsessed I would say. I already avoided processed foods, but I decided to take it one step further and cut out all meat, dairy, gluten, and sugar from my diet. Now, I am not sure how many of you have done this (or maybe currently are) but you will realize that literally everything has at least one of those items in it! After months of limiting these foods, I came to realize that moderation is really the key to leading a healthy lifestyle while also being able to indulge from time to time. As my studies in molecular biology have taught me, there are so many things that can affect our cells, and the key is to always make sure that we provide our bodies with the proper nutrients that it needs to function at it’s best.
So on that note, I decided to share 5 foods that I believe we should all be eating frequently! Of course, if you have allergies or dietary issues with these foods you will have to look to other options. Continue reading “5 Essential Foods That You Probably Aren’t Eating Enough Of!”
