Dig into a full buffet of food-related content in this delicious new issue of Y Magazine. From BYU research addressing food insecurity at home and abroad to insights on diet and body positivity to the special significance of food in BYU culture and history, there’s a lot to chew on. Bon appétit!

A football player is surrounded by the food he eats in a day, including eggs, oatmeal, smoothie, meat, fruit, and protein bars.

Between learning plays, lifting weights, and running stadium bleachers, BYU’s football players have a lot on their plates, figuratively. And it’s all powered by what’s on their plates, literally. Guess how many calories an offensive lineman like Connor J. Pay (above) consumes to power a full day of training.

Teh periodic table of elements.

Russian chemist Dmitri Mendeleev put together the periodic table of the elements more than 150 years ago.

Adding to its beauty is the inspiring story of a mother’s love, recognition of her son’s abilities, and sacrifice. Maria Mendeleev’s example reminds us of the human dimension behind every creation. Watch this video for a history lesson on chemistry and the Mendeleevs.
