What is the Most Popular Fruit in the U.S.?

Thursday, August 21st, 2014

Nothing says summer quite like your favorite fresh fruit and vegetables! These warmer months are the peak of the growing season for many of these tasty treats, and their crisp, refreshing flavor is the perfect complement to a sunny day out by the pool or at a picnic. That being said, which of the many delicious fruit out there are particular favorites of Americans, and what kinds of yummy summer dishes can you make with them? Hearn Kirkwood has a few suggestions.

Bananas
For years now, bananas have made the top of the list when it comes to the U.S.’s favorite fruit. While they are a healthy, potassium-rich food on their own, bananas are also very versatile fruit that can be incorporated into a number of dishes. They are a staple of lunchtime sides like fruit salads, as well as many breakfast foods, like banana bread and muffins. For those trying to eat healthy, a banana is an essential addition to a fruit smoothie- it creates the perfect, creamy texture and pairs well with many other flavors!

Apples
You know what they say- one of these a day keeps the doctor away, so Americans must be eating them by the millions! Apples are a classic American favorite thanks to apple pie, but they also can be used outside the realm of dessert foods. Pork and apples, for example, is a popular savory dish that is easy to make and a guaranteed hit with your family!

Oranges
It’s everybody’s favorite citrus! Whether it’s a nice, cold glass of OJ in the morning or a handful of slices for a snack, oranges are a popular fruit that has one big benefit: Vitamin C. Vitamin C is responsible for keeping you healthy and staving off colds. Oranges, like apples (not that we’re trying to compare), have found their way into savory dinner dishes as well- think of orange chicken, the staple of your favorite Chinese takeout menu.

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 Have Healthier Eating Habits In 2012

Tuesday, December 27th, 2011

 Are you trying to have healthier eating habits for this New Year? If yes, we are here to help you eat healthier this year with nutrition and food must-dos. Read below to get started.

 

Cook And Eat More Homemade Meals

 Not only is cooking from scratch more rewarding, but it is healthier to eat from home than away from home. More than half the meals we consume in the United States of America are eaten outside of the home. Meals that are not homemade are larger in portions and lack healthy ingredients. Homemade foods are more likely to taste delicious and be healthier. If you fear your skills in the kitchen, try buying an easy to use cookbook.

 

Buy Local

 When you buy local you have healthier selections and you increase your chances of finding quality goods. Look up a market that provides an abundance of quality local goods.

 

Look at the Labels

 The best way to eat healthier is to look at the ingredients of what you are eating. When shopping for food, do your best to buy goods that are labeled organic products. Do your best to avoid foods consisting of corn, soy, cottonseed and canola by products. Examples of canola byproducts are oil, starch and flour.

 

For a great selection of nutritious foods, shop at Hearn Kirkwood, contact Hearn Kirkwood by calling 410.712.6000 (Baltimore), 301.621.2992 (Washington DC), or visit our website!

How To Identify And Cook Steak Cuts

Tuesday, November 29th, 2011

 

Do you know how to identify and cook steak cuts? If no, we are here to help you! Read below to learn!

 

Eye Round

This is an nonredeemable cut of meat. It is tasteless and tough. You can save money by buying it.

 

Chuck Steak

Chuck steak is the shoulder of an animal. This cut of meat has great flavors and a good balance of tenderness and toughness.  If you have a cut with a long flat bone, it originates close to where the prime rib is cut. It usually has a piece of the tender part of a rib eye. Cut the rib eye out and use the chuck steak for stew or burgers. You can freeze what you do not use for meals later.

 

How to Cook Your Steak Right

 

If you enjoy tender steaks, the best technique to use to get your cuts tender is to cook them low and slow. If you want your steaks juicy, brown your steaks on high and then heat down to a medium low and cook slowly. Make sure to turn them often.

 

To learn how to cook to perfection your steaks well done, medium rare or bloody rare, read this article from the Huffington post.

5 Tips on How to Avoid Over Indulging During Thanksgiving

Thursday, November 17th, 2011

 

Are you looking for ways to make your Thanksgiving dinner a healthy choice? If yes, we are here to help by giving you five great tips on how to avoid overindulging. Read below to learn!

 

Thanksgiving promotes families to overboard with the calories and consumption, then regret it later. The temptations of gooey apple pie and dense sweet potatoes topped with melted marshmallows make it hard for most to be disciplined during dinner.

 

Here are five ways experts suggest you do to avoid over indulging on not so healthy foods during Thanksgiving:

 

 

Stick to Healthy Portions

 

Experts recommend that you have one plate of Thanksgiving food. They say it is all you need. Fill up half of your plate with vegetables, fruit, whole wheat roll, a quarter of mashed potatoes or sweet potatoes, another quarter should go for the meats of turkey or ham. The more color to your plate, the better. Add leafy greens, carrots, bell peppers and beets to your veggie spread.

 

When you fill up on these types of food, you have a lower caloric density and a higher level of nutrition to serve your body. You will not only feel full but you will not be bloated or tired because it is a lighter, healthier and well-balanced meal.

 

As for dessert, pick fruit or pumpkin pies, they have fewer calories than chocolate or pecan pies.

 

Have Single Servings of the Most Unhealthy Foods

 

If you stick to single serving of the unhealthiest foods, you will avoid feeling bloated. Have a half of cup of mashed potatoes- that is the regular size of a cupcake. Have Turkey the size of your checkbook.

 

 

Eat before you indulge.

 

Make sure you do not starve yourself the whole day waiting for the big dinner. You are not saving room for your big meal but preparing yourself to over eat. Eat breakfast. Eat lunch. Have snacks. You will thank yourself later.

 

For more great tips on how to avoid overindulging, read this article from MyHealthyNewsDaily.com.
