|Have you heard of arugula? It is a green, leafy vegetable that contains about 20 times more beta-carotene and vitamin C, and 8 times more calcium than iceberg lettuce. When making green salads at home, consider opting for dark green leaves, such as arugula, romaine, chicory and thinly sliced kale. Substituting these greens in salads and on sandwiches creates a more nutrient dense meal.|

|Advanced Cognitive & Memory Enhancement|
|As we age, our memory skills and cognitive abilities tend to diminish. Many of us notice that we forget names or where we placed our keys or wallet.
While some people expect a certain amount of cognitive deterioration, many don’t realize that the aging process has very little to do with memory loss or other cognitive disorders. Instead, many cognitive issues stem from not getting the right nutrients, often compounded by poor lifestyle choices...|
|Dark Chocolate Zucchini (or summer squash) Cake|
Description: Dark chocolate the bitter sweet treat! It's more than wishful thinking - chocolate can be good for you. Studies show that eating chocolate, primarily dark chocolate, may contribute to improved cardiovascular health. Packed with natural antioxidants, dark chocolate and cocoa sit in the same good-for-you category as green tea and blueberries. That's because chocolate comes from cacao beans (or cocoa beans), which grow on the cacao tree and are full of natural plant nutrients. Most of the studies to date highlight dark chocolate's health values because it has the highest percentage of cocoa solids, therefore more antioxidants.
*Health Fact! 40g of cocoa powder a day for 4 weeks has been proven to increase HDL (good) cholesterol by 5% while decreasing LDL (bad cholesterol by 14%!
As a part of the summer squash family, zucchini not only offers delightful taste and texture to many dishes, but also carries with it many health bene?ts.
