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

Low-Fuss Crispy Roast Chicken

Rendering fat trickles from the chicken as it roasts onto a bed of sliced potatoes and onions, resulting in a deliciously crisp and juicy low-fuss bird with a built-in side dish.

Hot Honey Pork Chops with Escarole and White Beans

The spicy garlic-honey glaze for the pan-seared pork chops also forms the base of the sauce for the warm escarole-and–white bean salad in this easy one-pan dinner.

Hummus Dinner Bowls with Spiced Ground Beef and Tomatoes

Hummus is a great base for a weeknight dinner. Top each serving off with crispy spiced beef and a fresh tomato salad and dig in, with pita or without.

Antipasto Salad

Long sweet peppers show up at farmers’ markets during the peak of the season and may be sold as long sweet yellow, sweet banana, Hungarian Sweet, or Cubanelle. You can substitute two medium red, orange, or yellow bell peppers (don’t use the green ones).

Slow-Cooker Oatmeal With Apples and Ginger

This warming porridge features oats two ways plus brown rice, millet, or quinoa. Knowing you have a bubbling hot breakfast waiting for you on a chilly morning makes getting out of bed so much easier. This recipe feeds a crowd, but it also reheats easily for individual servings throughout the week.

Cinnamon–Chocolate Chunk Skillet Cookie

This eminently sharable cookie has all the flavors of a latte. And chocolate. Lots of hot, melting milk chocolate.
