Health and Fitness News

Welcome to the Stars Hollow Gazette‘s Health and Fitness News weekly diary. It will publish on Saturday afternoon and be open for discussion about health related issues including diet, exercise, health and health care issues, as well as, tips on what you can do when there is a medical emergency. Also an opportunity to share and exchange your favorite healthy recipes.

Questions are encouraged and I will answer to the best of my ability. If I can’t, I will try to steer you in the right direction. Naturally, I cannot give individual medical advice for personal health issues. I can give you information about medical conditions and the current treatments available.

You can now find past Health and Fitness News diaries here.

What to Cook This Weekend

Sunday night is the big movie awards night, the Oscars. This year the festivities start at 1 PM ET on ABC. The Red Carpet parade begins at 5:30 PM ET culminating with the big event at 8 PM ET. I will be ensconced in my usual spot on the couch with a large bowl of buttery popcorn and a pitcher of Martinis with several olives. But what to eat besides popcorn? Here are some ideas starting with a luscious desert you can make tonight.

Almond-Crust Raspberry Cheesecake

A quick raspberry sauce adds pastry-shop polish to this cheesecake. Want extra to serve alongside the dessert? Double the ingredient amounts and reserve half the sauce. Bonus: You’’ll get more of the berries’’ anti-inflammatory benefits.

One-Skillet Hot Sausage and Cabbage Stir-Fry with Chives

Sauté hot Italian sausage meat with ginger and garlic, mix with veg, and dinner’s a wrap!

Bitter Greens Salad with Melted Cheese

Baking a salad might make you nervous, but a quick moment in the oven will only wilt the greens slightly and yet melt the cheese so that it cloaks the greens nicely.

Crudités With Bacon XO Sauce

XO sauce can be used as an all-purpose condiment. It’s great over rice, steamed or roasted veggies, or roast chicken.

Pasta Carbonara with Cabbage and Mushrooms

Everything you love about pasta carbonara, but with a little less pasta and a lot more vegetables.

Gramma Pandolfi’s Pasta Sauce with Meatballs

When only the most supreme of comfort foods will do, there’s pasta with meat sauce.
