RECIPES: Holiday Fruitcake, Christine’s Applesauce Christmas Loaves, Norwegian Christmas Bread

By Rae Udy

Naturally sweet dried fruits and crunchy nuts combine to create nutritious holiday fruitcakes and breads. Through the years fruitcake has gained and unfortunate reputation for being heavy and tasteless, but the following moist fruitcake and fruity breads look elegant, taste delicious and offer a good source of protein, iron and dietary fiber.
Holiday Fruitcake is a traditional fruitcake recipe and requires a lengthy cooking time. Bake in one large Bundt pan or two loaf pans to share with family and friends.
Try Christine’s Applesauce Christmas Loaves for a healthy twist on the original. This easy to make fruitcake is more like banana bread than fruitcake and has a sweet, nut topping.
Norwegian Christmas Loaves take making bread to a new level. The recipe looks complicated but it really isn’t, just a few steps. The effort will be worth it.
Have a Happy Holiday Season.

RECIPES: Blueberry-Lemon Muffins, Blueberry-Pineapple Ambrosia, Berry Baked Apples

By Rae Udy

Research at Tufts University has uncovered the anti-aging powers of blueberries and other dark colored fruits and vegetables.

James Joseph, a nutrition researcher at the Jean Mayer USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging at Tufts and author of “The Color Code” wrote, “Many of the ailments that we’ve come to fear – cancer, heart disease, diabetes and osteoporosis among others – are not inevitable at all, by fortifying our diets with colorful fruits and vegetables, we may prevent many of these diseases from striking in the first place.”
In 1999, Joseph first reported blueberries can help slow memory loss and improve coordination, thanks to the antioxidants that give them their dark blue color. Improvements in balance were also significant.
( http://enews.tufts.edu/stories/1154/2002/03/11/PowerOfBlue )
( http://enews.tufts.edu/stories/619/2004/09/09/NothingToBeBlueAbout )
According to the Blueberry council, http://blueberrycouncil.org/nutrition.php ,blueberries are an excellent source of vitamin C. A one cup serving provides 14mg or almost 25 percent of the daily requirement. They are also a good source of dietary fiber and manganese.
Blueberries rank among the highest on per serving basis of antioxidants with 6,552 micromoles. Substances called polyphenols give blueberries their blue hue and are the major contributors to the antioxidant activity of blueberries.
( http://blueberrycouncil.org/nutrition.php )
With just 80 delicious calories per cup and virtually no fat, blueberries offer many important nutrition and health benefits. The following recipes are from the Blueberry Council website.

RECIPES: Soy Pancakes, Spinach Cheese Rolls, Almonds Oats Granola Fruit Crisp

By Rae Udy

April is National Soyfoods Month and according to the Soyfoods Association of North America, soyfoods.org, 38 percent of Americans enjoy a dinner that includes soy foods every night.
( http://soyfoods.org/press-releases/april-is-soyfoods-month )
Soymilks, yogurts, noodles, soy-based cheeses and meat alternatives aren’t found just in health food stores anymore. Many soy foods are easily purchased in your neighborhood grocery store during the entire year.
Soyfoods also brings more options to people who have certain food allergies or on special diets. Those who are lactose intolerant, or allergic to milk can enjoy soymilk and people with peanut or nut allergies can try soy nut butter or roasted soy nuts.
Soyfoods containing soy protein can be allies in the ongoing battle against heart disease, the number one killer of adult men and women. Over 40 scientific studies have proven the positive effect of soy protein on lowering cholesterol levels.
The Food & Drug Administration recommends eating 25 grams of soy protein every day as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol. A serving of soy latte provides 7 grams of soy protein, roasted salted soynuts contain 12 grams and a soy cheeseburger has 9 grams of heart-healthy soy protein.
( http://soybean.org/health.html ) Look under Heart Health and Heart Disease paragraph.
The following recipes are from the soyfoods.org site. From breakfast to dessert they have a great example of the many soy products available and how easy it is to cook them.

RECIPES: Sweet & Nutty Stir-Fry. Take-a-Break Snack Mix

by Rae Udy

February is American Heart Month, according to the American Heart Association. During the month, their goal is to raise funds for heart research and to provide education about heart disease and stroke.
Heart disease is the number one killer of American men and women. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, about every 25 seconds an American will have a coronary event.
Some heart attacks are sudden and intense, but, according to the CDC website, http://cdc.gov/Features/HeartMonth/, most start slowly with mild pain.
Chest discomfort in the center of the chest that lasts more than a few minutes, or goes away and comes back is one sign a heart attack may be happening. Other symptoms include pain and discomfort in other areas of the upper body, such as, one or both arms, the back, neck, jaw or stomach.
Shortness of breath, breaking out in a cold sweat, nausea or light-headedness are more warnings of heart problems.
The AHA, the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, the American Red Cross and the National Council of Aging urge people to know the signs of a heart attack and know the importance of calling 911 immediately at the onset of symptoms.
The AHA recommends eating a wide variety of nutritious foods daily. Fresh fruit and vegetables, fiber-rich grains, nuts, legumes and seeds are smart food choices that will benefit your long-term heart health.
These recipes are just two of the many offered on the AHA website, heart.org. Main dish Sweet & Nutty Stir-Fry is light and filling at the same time and Take-a-Break Snack Mix is fun to have on hand anytime.

RECIPES: Pita Wedges with Green Olive Tapenade, Peach Crumble

By Rae Udy

Food trends are always changing and according to the Mayo Clinic website, http://mayoclinic.com/health/comments/MY01645 , these six food trends will be popular in 2011.
Home food preservation and canning is a popular trend continuing from the weak economy. More people are taking this step to control the amount of sugar, salt and preservatives in their diet.
With more women in the workforce,more men are in the kitchen than ever before.
Technology can help in the kitchen with instant information online or on your phone about food nutrition, recipes and coupons to download.
Local buying is also a popular food trend. Consumers want to know where their food came from and patronize local merchants at the same time.
Expanding the comfort zone and trying new foods is one way to wake up your taste buds and improve your outlook towards nutritious foods.
Baby boomers are always looking for the new ‘super food’ to supply nutrients to help preserve vitality and delay aging. The search is still on, but you will find an abundance of super foods in your produce aisle, according to Mayo Clinic nutritionists, Jennifer Nelson, M.S., R.D. and Katherine Zeratsky, R.D.
These recipes from the Mayo Clinic website, http://mayoclinic.com/health/meatless-recipes/RE00104 , include a nutritional breakdown, dietitian tips and helpful hints.

RECIPES: Fruit Dipping, Apple-Hazelnut Salad In A Cup, Salsa Fresca, Strawberry Banana Cooler, Fruit Slushy in a Can

By Rae Udy

A healthy body needs nutrients for growth, development and energy but getting tweens to eat the proper foods can be a struggle.
Designed for kids 9-13 years old, the website Bam! Body and Mind, at bam.gov/sub_foodnutrition/index.html , provides information needed for children and their parents to help make healthy lifestyle choices.
( http://www.bam.gov/sub_foodnutrition/index.html )
This Centers for Disease Control and Prevention site, offers games to help tweens choose the right foods in the cafeteria, answers questions about food and nutrition and provides fun and easy-to-make recipes for the whole family.
( www.cdc.gov/nutrition/ )

Have you wondered about how much food a 9-13 year old should eat? This site breaks down how many fruits, vegetables, grains, protein, dairy and fats needed for this group.
A more active child in the target age range, should try to eat 2 cups of fruits, 3 cups of veggies, 7 ounces of whole grains, 6 ounces of protein, 3 cups of low-fat milk and 6 teaspoons of fats or oils each day. A less active 9-13 year old would need slightly less.
( www.bam.gov/sub_foodnutrition/diningdecisions_questions.html )
Confused on how foods measure up in cups, ounces and teaspoons? The site has a fun “count decoder” to help. For example, 1 ounce of grain is counted as a slice of whole grain bread, packet of instant oatmeal or 1 cup cooked rice.
( www.bam.gov/sub_foodnutrition/dining_pop_count.html )

The following is just a sample of the delicious and nutritious recipes located in the Cool Treats section, http://bam.gov/sub_foodnutriton/cool treats_alone.html.

RECIPES: Beth’s Holiday Fruitcake, Grace’s No Bake Fruitcake

By Rae Udy

Naturally sweet dried fruits and crunchy nuts combine to create nutritious holiday fruitcakes. These moist fruitcakes look elegant, are nutritious and taste even better as they age throughout the holiday season.
My mom, Beth White, and my mom-in-law, Grace Weese, make these fruitcakes about this time each year. Mom hides her classic version in the back of the fridge until Christmas morning and Grace sends her fruitcake treat in a package we eagerly wait for after Thanksgiving.
Beth’s Holiday Fruitcake is a traditional fruitcake recipe and requires a lengthy cooking time. You can bake this recipe in 1 large Bundt pan, 2 bread loaf pans or 8 mini loaf pans to share with family and friends.
Grace’s No Bake Fruitcake is made with graham crackers and marshmallows. This no-bake cake will turn any fruitcake hater into a fan with its light taste and texture. Vegetarians and vegans can buy marshmallows made without gelatin at health food or online stores.
