My Favorite Grilled Garlic Chicken

My family is originally from Taiwan (like Jeremy Lin and Jason Wu), so we like garlic with everything. Aside from being tasty, garlic contains several different antioxidants including compounds that have been shown to inhibit the growth of basal cell carcinoma and melanoma cells. Garlic extract has also been shown to speed wound healing, as well as lower blood pressure.

Feed Your Face: A Vitamin That's Essential for Health and Beauty

By Dr Jessica Wu

Vitamin D is an important nutrient. It’s also the only vitamin that the body can produce on its own — with the help of sunlight. But the sun can also damage our skin. As I’ve said before, I like to have a tan, but I’m not willing to risk skin cancer, wrinkles, and brown splotches for it, which is why I'm always on the lookout for good ways to fake it.

Feed Your Face: Mango Salsa Recipe

By Dr Jessica Wu

I spend all week in my office, so on the weekends, I try to spend as much time as possible outside (in the shade, of course!). One of my favorite summer recipes is this mango salsa from my sister Tina, who recently made it for a family barbecue. She was inspired to create it by reading Feed Your Face, and it’s become her (and now my) go-to salsa recipe. Mangoes are rich in vitamin C, which is essential for building strong collagen, and tomatoes contain lots of lycopene and other antioxidants, which have been shown to help protect against sunburn and sun damage. This salsa is sweet and tangy, and it's a great option if you or any of your guests are sensitive to spicy foods or don’t care for chilies. Serve it with grilled fish (my favorite), over chicken, or as a dip.
