This week at The Real Food Academy, we're focusing on antioxidants in an effort to help you win the battle over free radicals' damages to your body that accumulate with age.
That's why today, our Food For Thoughts features an article that reveals the benefits of antioxidant rich foods as we explore the impact of free radicals on the human body.
This week's adult class on Thursday is titled Rejuvenating Superfoods; For starters, we'll have Aloe Vera Juice, next we'll prepare an antioxidant rich Fresh Berries Salad with Home Made Vinaigrette, our entree will be a succulent Lemon Stuffed Branzino Whole Fish with Herbs with a side of Sautee Brussels Sprouts and for dessert, we'll make one of my favorites, Raw Chocolate and Chia Energy Bars. On Saturday, kids will make French Toast with Fresh Whipped Cream, an Egg and Vegetables Soufflé, also we'll prepare Deviled Eggs and for dessert, we'll make a delicious Strawberry and Banana smoothie.
It's fitting that this week's recipes also focus on boosting your antioxidant levels, so today, I want to share raw recipes that include a heart warming soup, a risotto with a seafood twist and for dessert, a simple sorbet that's sweet AND healthy!

I look forward to seeing you on Thursday and Saturday, and hope you will continue to make healthy choices when choosing food to fuel your body - and soul!
