I wanted protein recipes other than that mashing a vanilla-flavored powder with almond butter and flax seeds and calling it a day. I wanted something that really made me feel as if I was cooking. And yes, even good old-fashioned baking! Adding pure, unflavored, but wholesome plant-based protein powders to recipes brings out my inner foodie alchemist. I heard the call of the protein ninja. Whether you're vegan, vegetarian, or eat-everything-you-can-get-your-hands-on, a weeknight home chef, everyday athlete, or just a busy person looking wholesome, protein-rich snacks and meals, you deserve something better than another chia seed ball or protein shake for dinner. Award-winning vegan chef Terry Hope Romero leads the charge with 100 lean, mean recipes using a wide range of readily available ingredients—from supermarket-friendly staples to cutting-edge superfoods and an arsenal of gluten- and soy-free options. With an everything-you-need-to-know rundown on plant-based protein sources, and chapters like Stealthy Protein Pancakes, Waffles, Scrambles, & Much Much More, Super Toast: Savory or Sweet, and Better than Ever Burger Bowls, you'll soon be sneaking plant-based protein into your breakfasts, dinners, and everything in between. Dig into: Chocolate Avocado Smoothie Bowl Golden Corn Hemp Protein Waffles Baked Veggie Pan Omelet Edamame Spelt Flatbreads Garam Masala Red Lentil Toast Cheezy Herb Kale Scones Green Goddess Burger & Roasted Potatoes Bowl Tomato Gravy & Biscuit Kale Bowl Korean Tofu Taco Salad Lemongrass Tempeh Meatballs with Peanut Satay Sauce Waffled Tofu, Waffles & Collards Bowl Black Bean Hemp Brownies Peanut Butter Coconut Cherry Chewies …and many more!

Archie comes back from his summer away to find that he is the only kid in Grade 6 who has not grown bigger. Even his best friends Alfie and Shamini have gotten taller — and Shamini has developed in other ways, too. Archie knows that if only he can be more like the heroes of his favourite comic books, TV shows and video games, he'll be able to keep the older boys from teasing Shamini about her newly developed body — and maybe she'll keep her promise to go to the first school dance with him. From practicing the ninja crawl to bulking up with exercise and a high-protein diet, how can Archie fail?
Jasmonate (JA) is a plant-specific, oxylipin signaling molecule. JA hormone signaling is required for defense against both biotic and abiotic stressors, male-fertility, and other growth and developmental processes. Activation of JA signaling occurs rapidly upon hormone sensing. In the absence of hormone, DNA-binding transcription factors are inhibited by members of the JASMONATE ZIM DOMAIN (JAZ) family of repressors. This keeps transcription from JA-responsive promoters turned off and resources are directed away from defense and toward growth. In the presence of hormone, JA facilitates interaction between JAZs and the F-box protein CORONATINE INSENSITIVE1 (COI1). This results in the ubiquitination and subsequent degradation of JAZs, an action that alleviates repression by JAZs and allows for the activation of JA-responsive gene transcription. This body of work focuses on the identification and characterization of three new proteins and their roles within the JA signaling pathway, and also includes a review article published in Frontiers in Plant Science in 2012. The first protein, NOVEL INTERACTOR OF JAZ (NINJA), was identified in a yeast-two-hybrid screen for JAZ1-interacting proteins and functions as a co-repressor involved in JA signaling (chapter 2). TIFY8, is related to JAZs, sharing homology with JAZ family members through its conserved TIFY motif. We hypothesized that the protein may function as a dominant repressor of JA signaling, but my work here will show that this is likely not true. TIFY8 may instead have a role in regulating meristem function in early development (chapter 3). The next chapter (chapter 4) is a review article that details how protein-protein interaction studies have aided in the identification and characterization of several important transcription factors involved in JA signaling in recent years. Lastly, I present my work with the basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH) protein, MYC5, showing that overexpression of the protein in the male-sterile JA signaling mutant, coi1, restores fertility and a subset of other JA responses (chapter 5). Together, this work helps to move the field forward both by contributing to our understanding of the mechanism of JAZ repression as well as by characterizing the function of MYC5, a key regulator of JA-mediated male fertility.
