Beating The Summer Heat With Cool Down Foods And Drinks

Wednesday, June 20th, 2012

Searching for ways to beat the summer heat? If yes, look no further than your dining room table. You can beat the summer heat with what you eat and drink! Hearn Kirkwood has for you some delicious food and drink recipes you can serve yourself and guests to stay cool without cranking up the AC. Read about these no-cook summer recipes now.

 

One great ways to stay cool during summer is to water down your meals. No, we don’t mean drench your meals in water. Instead, serve high water content foods such as watermelon, cucumbers, celery, iceberg lettuce, and tomatoes. These foods will keep you hydrated and help your body more effectively release heat.

 

Serve yourself a watermelon gazpacho (here) for those hot days.

 

Next, add some spice to your meals. Spicy foods help your body induce sweat, which naturally lowers your internal temperature. A delicious, spicy recipe you can try today is the Szechuan Shrimp. Now you know why people in desert environments, such as the Middle East, love spicy meals during the summer.

 

Another way to stay cool during the summer is to go green. Eat big, leafy, green salad every day of summer. Greens help thin your blood and allow your body to release body heat and cool down. A spinach salad with summer strawberries should do the trick. Here is the salad recipe.

 

With your salad, have a mojito. Mojitos have menthol from the mints that cause your body to feel cool. Mints also have a hint of spice to help with body sweat flow. But best of all mints have calming properties, so you will remain cool, calm and collected during those hot summer days.

 

Last but not least, add garlic to your meals. Garlic helps to reduce blood clotting and can decrease your body heat. This is possible because garlic increases blood circulation and allows the body to sweat moderately. Roast and spread garlic on your grilled corn this summer.

How To Stay Healthy With Cocktails And Cocktail Hors D’oeuvres

Tuesday, April 24th, 2012

 

Did you know that cocktails could help you look younger? It is true! One cocktail a day can keep the doctor away. Based on a Harvard University study, one cocktail a day helps middle age women and men to grow old without developing any physical or mental limitations.

 

Drinking cocktails regularly will reduce inflammation, raise HDL (good) cholesterol and improve insulin function. But what should you have with your cocktails? Hearn Kirkwood is here to help you answer that question with a list of appetizers and hors d’oeuvres you should serve with cocktails! Read to learn about them!

 

There are numerous types of hors d’oeuvres – canapés, crudités (with or without dips) and pastries. When it comes to serving hors d’oeuvres with cocktails, have plenty of finger food that will not drip or splash. The less napkins you will need…the better.

 

Next, make sure the hors d’oeuvres are savory. When drinking cocktails, you should avoid sweets. Salty appetizers work best, especially with martinis.

 

Some great flavors to use in your hors d’oeuvres are cheese, olives, tomato, bacon, ham and fish. Do not make these flavors too strong. You want your food to complement your drinks, not overpower your cocktails.

 

Your hors d’oeuvres can be hot and cold. Peanuts, mini pretzels, nachos are prefect starters for a cocktail party because they are bit-size, salty and make for little clean up.

 

Another  hors d’oeuvre you should consider is quiche.  Quiche Lorraine (cheese and bacon/ham) or tuna is great to give out at your cocktail party. You can bake this pastry, let it cool and fill it with cucumber, crème fraiche and salmon tartare.

 

Vegetable chips are also a delicious, healthy choice to serve with cocktails. Or try an adventurous appetizer of asparagus wrapped in Prosciutto and sun dried tomato pastries.

 

No matter your choice of hors d’oeuvres enjoy your bit-size snacks and wonderful cocktails. You will be enjoying great food and beverages well staying healthy!

National Pancake Week: How To Make Fun and Delicious Pancake Shapes

Monday, February 20th, 2012

It is national pancake week! If you are a pancake lover, then this article will provide you fun and creative information on how to make pancake shapes. Read to make breakfast fun and enjoyable this week!

 

When meals are made creatively, it encourages fussy eaters to eat and learn at the same time (make breakfast a geometry or reading lesson). Being an artistic chef for breakfast is a moderately easy duty. It only takes the following items:

 

Ø Metal geometric-shaped cookie cutters

Ø Non-stick cooking spray

Ø Flat griddle

Ø Pancake batter

Ø Plastic squeeze bottle

Ø Metal Spatula

Ø Plate

Ø Butter Knife

 

The first thing you need to do is spray your cookie cutters with your non-stick cooking spray. Next, pre-heat your griddle to the temperature suggested by your pancake mix. You should use only a griddle with a flat cooking surface.

 

Once the griddle is heated, place the cookie cutters on the griddle. Make sure the cutting side is face down.

 

Pour the pancake batter into your plastic squeeze bottle and squeeze the pancake butter into the cookie cutters until the halfway point.

 

You do not want to fill the pancake batter anymore than halfway because the batter will flow over the cutters. Cook the pancakes and remove the cookie cutters with the pancakes still attached to it. Use your metal spatula to scrape your pancakes off the griddle and onto to your plates.

 

Once on the plates, remove the cookie cutter molds from the pancakes.  Place pancakes on uncooked side back on the griddle to brown (cookie cutter molds should not be attached).

 

Have a happy national pancake week! Do not forget the syrup!

 

Buy your fresh fruits for your pancakes, as well as your pancake batter, from Hearn Kirkwood.

4 Foods To Eat To Improve Your Skin Complexion

Monday, February 13th, 2012

 

Looking for ways to combat acne and improve your complexion? If yes, this article will help you eat better to improve the health of your skin with 4 skin super foods. Read to get started on your perfect skin diet.

 

Almonds

 

Almonds are seeds but most people believe they are nuts. Almonds are full of vitamin E, which helps block the sun from harming your skin. If you consume 20 almonds a day, you will suffer from sunburn less. Vitamin E helps protect your skin cells from UV light and helps prevent skin cell damage from environment elements. If you do not like almonds, try 2 Tbsp of peanut butter.

 

Carrots

 

 Carrots are wonderful vegetables. They can clear up breakouts because of vitamin A. Vitamin A prevents overproduction of cells in your skin’s out layer. Without vitamin A, dead cells and sebum will clog your pores. Vitamin A is also wonderful because it reduces the chances of skin-cancer cells developing. You should eat 16 baby carrots a day. If you do not enjoy eating carrots, have 1 cup of meal or cheddar cheese instead.

 

 Dark Chocolate

 

Dark chocolate is filled with Flavonols, antioxidants that reduce roughness in your skin and protect your skin from sun damage. Dark chocolate gives you better skin texture and makes your skin more resistant to UV rays. Eat a few ounces of dark chocolate a day. If you are not a fan of dark chocolate, eat blackberries, blueberries, cherries, and raspberries.

 

 Spinach

 

 Eat spinach as much as you can to prevent cancer. Leafy greens prevent skin tumors. They also repair and maintain your DNA, making it easier for your skin cells to renew themselves. Not to mention, the water in spinach and other green make your skin wrinkle less because the water penetrates cell membranes. If you do not enjoy eating spinach, eat collard greens.

5 Ways To Grocery Shop Healthier

Tuesday, January 31st, 2012

Are you looking for ways to make your grocery shopping healthier? If yes, we are here to help by providing five tips on how to navigate the supermarket in the most effective way. Read below to start making smart choices in the grocery store.

 

To cook healthy meals, you need the right ingredients on hand in your kitchen. Most grocery shoppers do not have the time to look carefully at food labels and find the best nutritious foods at great buys.

 

Here are just a few ways to shop and eat better:

 

 Plan Your Meals Per Week

Before you step into the grocery store, have a game plan. Figure out what meals you want for the week or two weeks. List ingredients you will need to make these meals. Make sure you check out weekly discounts in grocery ads and never go to the grocery store hungry. When you go to the grocery store hungry, you setup yourself to spend more.

 

Shop For Variety

When shopping, make sure you shop for food included on the food pyramid such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains, dairy, lean meat, fish, poultry, beans and nuts. Buy food with the most nutritious values. For example, you should buy sweet potatoes over white potatoes because sweet potatoes are richer in beta-carotene.

 

If you enjoy eating something new every week, pick a new fruit or vegetable for you diet every week. Eat plenty of produce.

 

Look for the Least Processed Foods

When it comes to breads, cereals and pasta, buy the whole grains with the least amount of processing. Oatmeal is a great whole grain to eat.

 

Eat Fish Two Times a Week

Fish is affordable and an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids. If you are not a fish eater, choose lean cuts of meat such as round, top, sirloin and tenderloin. If you prefer chicken, pick skinless poultry.

 

Do not forget your Dairy

Dairy foods are a great source of calcium and vitamin D you need for bone growth. You should have three servings a day (this can include yogurts and cheeses as well as milk).

Tuesday, January 10th, 2012

Are you looking for ways to help your teenager son or daughter eat healthier this year? If yes, we are here to help by providing you information and ideas on how your teen can eat healthier, quicker and make easier meals. Read below to get started.

 

Eating the right foods in moderation will help your teenager maintain health and keep a balanced mood. Teenagers need specific nutrients to function successfully during the day. In fact, the most important meal is breakfast for a teenager. The body needs a daily supply of the following:

 

Ø Protein. This makes up components of muscles, hair, nails, skin, eyes and internal organs such as the heart and brain. Protein helps teens grow and keeps red blood cells healthy. Some great protein foods are eggs, cheese, soy products, fish, nuts, chicken, beef and pork. If you are a vegetarian, a great way to get the appropriate amount of protein is through consuming soy products, beans and nuts.

 

Ø Carbohydrates.  They are the body’s main source of energy and help the nervous system, muscles, and internal organs function. You can get enough carbohydrates by having fruits, vegetables, whole grains and beans in your diet.

 

Ø Fats. They are the body’s energy reserve and keep your body warm. Fats have nutrients of vitamins A, D, E and K. Fatty tissues will protect the body’s vital organs from trauma and temperature changes.

 

 Here are some great meal ideas for healthy, quick and easy consumption for your teen:

 

 Breakfast

 Ø Have a soy shake. You only need a cup of vanilla, chocolate, soy milk or milk from a cow. Blend this with banana and 2 ice cubes. This will improve your mood and how you function during the day.

 

Ø Eat Oatmeal. Oatmeal with chopped nuts, raisins, banana and strawberries is a great source of protein.

 

Ø Drink Orange Juice. This will give you the calcium and vitamin C you need to start your day.

 

Ø Eat Fresh Fruit. Some great fresh fruit to eat first thing in the morning are oranges, pears, strawberries, bananas, peaches, and blueberries. Eat it with yogurt and granola.

New Year: 4 Tips To Eating Healthier While Staying on A Budget

Thursday, January 5th, 2012

Are you trying to eat healthier this new year while staying on budget? If yes, we are here to help by providing four tips on eating healthier while staying on a budget. Read below to get started.

Transitioning to a diet that is purely organic and filled with fresh foods can become pretty pricey. You can eat healthy and stay on budget by weighing in food costs as you manage your budget. You must prioritize healthy, organic and fresh foods when picking out your diet for the New Year.

 

Eat Less Meat

 Meat products can be very costly because of how much effort and time has to be invested in producing it. The average American citizen eats more meat than he or she really needs to stay healthy. You can stay on budget while taking care of yourself by buying high quality meat in fewer quantities. You will get all the health benefits while staying in a budget.

 

Buy in Bulk

 When you buy in bulk, you save money because bulks are sold at a lower price per quantity ratio. Here are just a few great food products you can buy in bulk:

Ø Pasta

Ø Dried Fruits

Ø Nuts

Ø Flours

 

Give Your Body The Appropriate Amount of Organic Produce

There are 12 fruits and vegetables you should purchase organically rather than fruits and vegetable pesticides.

Ø Peaches

Ø Apples

Ø Sweet Bell Peppers

Ø Celery

Ø Nectarines

Ø Strawberries

Ø Cherries

Ø Pears

Ø Grapes

Ø Imported Spinach

Ø Lettuce

Ø Potatoes

 

Eat Seasonally

 When you eat seasonally, your food is more inclined to taste better and be more nutritious for you. This happens because your food is not shipped from the other side of the world. Seasonal foods usually cost less. To obtain the best deals, stock up on fruits and vegetables in their natural season. You can then can preserve or freeze them for when they are not in season.
