We're all trying to eat healthier right? We know we need lots of vitamins, minerals, essential fats and antioxidants, but sometimes we can know we need something without a clue of what it is and why we need it.
I put together this quick video to help explain what an antioxidant does how the affect "free radicals" (I think that's what my parents called me as a teenager.)
I hope you enjoy the video and if you have any questions about terms you hear or things you'd like to know more about, let me know, I'm always looking for new topics to create good health where ever I can.

I'm a snacker. I wish I could just stick with the normal 3 meals a day, but I like to snack, so I had to find healthy options that wouldn't keep calling me back for more.
I love Skinny Pop White Cheddar popcorn and this is a go to snack of mine, but I have to say it is hard to stop with one serving. My favorite snack is this little combo:
I put 1/2 cup of Frozen cherries in a bowl and microwave for 30 seconds. (you might like to keep them frozen...in the summer that's a yummy cool treat)
I add a 1/2 cup of Fage Plain 2% Greek Yogurt.
I buy the 2 cup size and score the top to let me know what 1/2 cup looks like.
I put that on top of my semi-warmed cherries and top the whole thing with .5 ounce of raw pecans.
I have used this little combo as a snack, breakfast, lunch, or desert.
