March is 
National Nutrition Month!


National Nutrition Month is a nutrition education and information campaign created annually in March by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, formerly the American Dietetic Association. The campaign focuses attention on the importance of making informed food choices and developing sound eating and physical activity habits. 

 

There are so many great resources on the website www.eatright.org 

that are worth checking out... Like "How to Eat Right on a Budget", "How to Eat Right on the Run", "Smart Snacking" and so much more!!!

 

  

Get the most out of your Doctor!

I read a great (not to mention, humorous) article in GQ this month as part of their quest to help readers get in shape in 2014.  There were very helpful facts and tips throughout the article, but as a doctor, what I really liked is that there was a focus on preventative care being a process... I'm always trying to stress to my patients how incredibly important preventative care is and that it's something to embrace instead of shy away from!  

Try not to wait until you feel something "off" to visit your doctors and when you do have an appointment, try to arm yourself with some information that will help you get the most out of your visits with us... essentially, help us to help you remain in good health!

Lentil & Goat Cheese Casserole

Lentils are perfect for providing the much-needed protein (18 grams per cup!) your body craves to keep it satiated and strong. By themselves, they may not seem very exciting, but combined with other cooked vegetables and cheeses, they're a little more enticing. This lentil and goat cheese casserole recipe I found  www.greatest.com 
brings some extra flavor and texture to otherwise simple, earthy lentils.
  • 1 cup  lentils2 cups water
  • 1/2 tablespoon olive oil1/2 red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 large carrot, grated
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 1 handful of fresh parsley, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons chickpea flour
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup goat cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste 

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

 

Bring the lentils and water to a boil, then reduce the heat to a simmer. Let lentils cook until all the water is absorbed - about 10 minutes. Set aside in a large bowl.

 

While the lentils are cooking, heat oil a medium frying pan over medium-high heat.

 

Add the onion, carrot, and garlic to the pan and saut´┐Ż until the onion is translucent and the other vegetables are tender.

 

Add the cooked vegetables to the bowl of lentils along with parsley, chickpea flour, soy sauce, and salt and pepper. Stir until evenly combined.

 

Lightly grease a small casserole dish (8x8 inches should work) with cooking spray or olive oil, and spread the mixture evenly in the dish. Top with the crumbled goat cheese.

 

Bake the casserole for about 10 minutes, or until the cheese has softened and melted.

 

Top with some extra fresh parsley, and enjoy!
