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

Summer ends tonight at 9:54 PM ET but the fall activities are already in full swing. After outings with family and friends, what better way to end the day with a delicious meal that is quick and easy to fix.

Garlicky Steak With Carrot, Walnut and Dill Salad

Any steak benefits from a quick marinade, but especially a flank steak. The salad, made from long strips of carrots, is a light, sophisticated side.

Sea Scallops With Brown Butter, Capers and Lemon

No better way to serve sweet sea scallops that in a buttery lemon sauce.

One-Pan Bruschetta Spaghetti

Spaghetti in the dead of summer, when tomatoes are at peak ripeness and break down quickly to coat any pasta in irresistible flavor, is the best time to eat spaghetti.

Cumin-Roasted Salmon With Cilantro Sauce

Be sure to slather the vinegary herb sauce on the still-warm salmon to allow the warm spices and fresh herbs to get to know each other better.

Kale Salad With Apples and Cheddar

For a kale salad to be successful, use the most tender kale you can find and cut it into very thin filaments or chop it very finely (or both). Curly kale and Russian kale are more tender than black leaf kale.
