Hmmm… heterozyklische Amine, polyzyklische Kohlenwasserstoffe, Benzpyren, Nitrosamine! 10.000 years of cultural development culminated in the haute cuisine. But now and then we’re avid for a piece of barbecued meat. Some Neandertal genes?

Dance Your Health Out

Christiana Care hosted women from across New Castle County, Del., for an evening designed to inspire attendees to improve their health through exercise and smart nutrition choices.

Combining dance, fun and education, the first ever Dance Your Health Out event, held at Westminster Presbyterian Church in Wilmington, provided free Zumba instruction, healthy food preparation demonstrations and health screenings to more than 200 women.

Attendees took part in a 50-minute Zumba workout led by instructor Davi Mozie that had them dancing, clapping and moving to the music. Zumba combines Latin and international rhythms with a fun, aerobics-style workout. The group included women of all ages—from teenagers to a woman in her 90s—with varying movement abilities, including “newbies” and skilled dancers.

Christiana Care employee Cindy Noble was one of the more experienced dancers in attendance, having lost 47 pounds in the past year thanks to Zumba and an improved diet. She was impressed by the number of first-time dancers at Dance Your Health Out.

“Every time I would turn around just to see what was going on in the room, I was amazed at the volume of people who were there dancing and into it,” Noble said. “People kept coming onto the floor, and they weren’t intimidated.”

“I think the group was exceptionally energetic,” commented Mozie. “When we got started I really didn’t think they would be able to last. We ended up going 10 minutes longer than we had planned because the group just didn’t want to stop. It was great.”

Others took advantage of the free health screenings available throughout the evening. Staff from Christiana Care’s Imaging Services and Center for Heart & Vascular Health assessed attendees’ risk for bone and heart disease, while members of Christiana Care’s Department of Family & Community Medicine calculated body-mass index and provided body-fat analyses.

Following Zumba, Jenn Barr, with Christiana Care’s Center for Community Health, conducted a healthy-cooking demonstration. Attendees sampled low-calorie dinner options provided by caterer Food for Thought and learned about the importance of nutrition in maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

A post-event survey of attendees offered insight about the effectiveness of the inaugural event. More than 97 percent of respondents said they were motivated to eat healthier and increase their physical activity.

The event was a collaboration of several departments within Christiana Care, including: Women’s Health Services; the Center for Heart & Vascular Health; Family & Community Medicine, Center for Community Health; Food and Nutrition Services; Imaging Services; Preventive Medicine & Rehabilitation Institute’s Food & Nutrition Services; Employee Health; and Volunteer Services.

Lentil Soup (Recipe)
recipes
Image by Ruthieki
I love this lentil soup. It’s warming and sustaining and delicious on cold days with a grilled-cheese sandwich. It keeps well in the fridge and freezes well, too, so I like to make up a huge pot of it and eat it for a week. This recipe is based on the lentil soup recipe from the Moosewood Cookbook. It’s fat-free and economical to make, as well.

Lentil Soup- Makes about 10 servings.
3 cups lentils (or one bag’s worth)
1/2 cup brown rice
8 cups water
2 tsp salt
8 cloves garlic, crushed
2 cups chopped onion (1 big one)
2 stalks celery, chopped
2 carrots, chopped
1 tsp basil
1/2 tsp thyme
1/2 tsp oregano
1 can diced tomatoes
fresh ground pepper to taste
red wine vinegar, to drizzle on top

Rinse the lentils well and combine with water and rice in large pot. Bring to a boil. Meanwhile, chop veggies and press garlic and add them to the mix. Add the spices and salt, too. Simmer for ~40 minutes or until rice and lentils are tender. Add more water by the cupful if the soup gets too thick. Add the tomatoes, adjust for seasonings, and serve with a drizzle of vinegar over the top of each bowl. Yum.

Strawberry Pie Recipe

I’ve had this recipe in just this form for over 30 years. Through luck, I haven’t permanently misplaced it or lost in during moves.

It makes a great strawberry pie, but can be used as well with peaches, apricots, or any fruit you don’t need to cook to have in a pie.
