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.

Summer is finally here in the northeast with temperatures in the 80’s. It’s time to fire up the grill, and even if you don’t have on, prepare recipes that are easy and light, as well as, tasty.

A pot full of garlicky steamed clams needs nothing more than some crusty bread – or even just a spoon – to accompany it. In this version, tarragon and chives add a bracing freshness to the clams while lime juice and zest brighten things up.
This Jamaican-style jerk sauce’s heat is towering, but it does not overwhelm the flavors that accompany the flames: thyme and allspice, along with wisps of caramelized sugar and a scent of rum.
This grilled broccoli is dressed simply in tamari, olive oil and balsamic vinegar. It results in crisp-tender florets that are beautifully sweet and salty beneath the smoke.
Hot, smoky garlic bread is equally friendly to a juicy steak, a whole fish or a Caprese salad.Hot, smoky garlic bread is equally friendly to a juicy steak, a whole fish or a Caprese salad.
