The CAA's Traveling Classroom Explores the World

The CAA Alumni Travel Study Program goes around the world on thought-provoking sojourns.  Many trips include a faculty member or featured expert that makes these adventures a kind of traveling classroom for the curious mind.  

Featured Alumni Travel Study Trip: Join the Columbia Alumni Association (CAA) on our remarkable journey to Sicily and the Amalfi Coast from May 31 to June 7, 2015. It is truly Italy at its very best. You will explore thousands of years of culture from the ancient Greeks, through Pompeii, right up to the modern pleasures of throwing your own pizza dough in a private cliff top home. Throughout, you will settle into lovely 4-star hotels, take leisurely walks on footpaths with breathtaking views, and meet the local people who get to take these dramatic settings for granted. Add in a limoncello tasting here and an afternoon at your villa-hotel’s pool there, and this will be an experience you’ll always remember.

    t is a green drink based on superfoods whose inventor is Drew Canole. Drew is also credited with the famous FitLife.tv, a wealth website. As the name suggests, Organifi uses organic ingredients, and a person gets 10 grams for every sitting. https://www.laweekly.com/organifi-green-juice-reviews-updated-2021-the-best-organic-superfood-powder-drink/

    Everybody is concerned about their health, but very few take care of it regularly. Either by doing exercise, yoga, meditation, or drinking various green smoothies made up of fruits and vegetables. https://www.organiccompleteproteinpowder.com

    Salmon, sardines, mackerel and certain other fatty fish are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, which are thought to lower the risk of heart disease and stroke. The benefits of eating fish may far outweigh the risk of harming your health from the mercury these fish contain, according to Harvard’s T.H. Chan School of Public Health. If you worry about the contaminants your fish dinner may contain, you can try eating lower down on the food chain. Certain fish, such as sharks, swordfish, king mackerel and tilefish, contain higher levels of mercury than smaller fish, like sardines, smelt, and anchovy.

    Sweet potato and squash also usually make the superfood list, for similar reasons as those listed for leafy greens. Both kinds of food are generally excellent sources of fiber, vitamin A and much more. They are also naturally sweet and don’t require the butter, cream or salt typically added to potatoes.

    Nuts and seeds contain high levels of minerals and healthy fats. Although these are common additions on superfood lists, the downside is that they are high in calories. Portion control is key. Shelled nuts and seeds, in this regard, are ideal because they take time to crack open and slow you down. A quick handful of shelled nuts could contain more than 100 calories, according to Hyde.

    Beans and whole grains are standard additions to the superfood lists. Beans are a source of low-fat protein. Beans contain insoluble fiber, which lowers cholesterol; soluble fiber, which provides a longer feeling of fullness; and loads of vitamins and trace minerals largely absent in the typical American diet, such as manganese. Whole grains — named such because, unlike refined grains, they are not stripped of their nutrient-containing bran and germ during processing — have similar benefits to beans, though they don’t contain as much protein. Quinoa is not a grain, but it cooks up like one, and this too is a remarkable source of protein, vitamins, minerals, fiber and antioxidants.

    Born and raised in Africa, i have visited Italy’s most beautiful area of coastline on some two occasions. This region is an inspiration to artists and writers like myself since the turn of the 20th century. I highly recommend exploring the stunning Amalfi coast and Sicily. You will delight in the unique, regional art, http://ubuntutransact.com culture, food, spectacular coastlines and wine. My personal favourite is Positano, the most suggestive center i believe in Amalfi Coast. It is a most enchanting town rich in art, history, culture and stunning landscape beauties.
