Over the years Vitamin D has not been one of the most commonly talked about vitamins. Despite not being a frequent topic of discussion among the general public, Vitamin D plays a critical role in health. According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, Vitamin D has many health benefits. One of the main roles Vitamin D plays is aiding in calcium absorption and bone health. Without adequate Vitamin D a person runs the risk of developing weak and misshapen bones or even Osteoporosis.

Regent’s College has a variety of meals each day and I thought it was because they are trying to cater to the different cultures here at the school, but this is not the case. English cuisine  is similar to American cuisine in that it is a mix of different cultures. In the morning, there is a combination of a full English breakfast, French croissants and pain au chocolat (a chocolate-filled croissant), and some granola and yogurt.

Returning to school in the spring semester can be quite draining for any student. Going from a cozy house, filled with family and friends to waking up at early hours and trekking across campus in below freezing temperatures can tire even the most active person. To even hold your head up you might buy two or three coffees a day. Before you go and purchase that fourth cup, think twice about what other healthy alternatives are out there to help wake you up!

Young people have always clarified the morality of our times. This sentiment was echoed throughout this past weekend as the student organization, Get Real! UNH, had the opportunity to attend the Second Annual Real Food Challenge “Breaking Ground” National Summit. The Real Food Challenge is a growing student movement working toward changing institutional purchasing power to create a more just and sustainable food system.

Organic foods and organic practices are receiving quite a lot of attention lately. I know I can't walk down the grocery store without seeing organic labels on food as well as advertising for "going organic" everywhere. Maybe you have no idea what being organic means and are interested in finding out, or maybe you already are an organic eater and want to spread awareness to others. Either way, those of you interested in eating organic or learning more about what it means to eat organically, this organization at UNH deserves your attention.

Are you a nutrition student who is itching to go abroad, but can’t seem to find a place for it in your busy schedule? This is a problem many nutrition students run into. Class scheduling is rigorous with the amount of classes nutrition majors have to take, and many times, students miss out on studying abroad because they feel like they have limited time.

Healthy Winter Vegetables

Many people believe that the winter months are not conducive to growing vegetables. This incorrect notion is not only, but is preventing people from experiencing the wonderfully nutritious vegetables that are grown during these colder months.

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.
