TUESDAY, Aug. 20, 2019 (HealthDay News) -- Americans eat three times as much cheese as just 50 years ago, but not because we're enjoying careful indulgences like a cheese plate with fruit and whole grain crackers. Experts point to the cheese overload in pizza and other Italian dishes, Tex-Mex favorites and the ubiquitous mac-and-cheese. That's a lot of saturated fat and calories. But most people don't have to avoid cheese completely -- it's just a question of being more judicious in your selections. Because the dairy fat found in cheese as well as in whole-fat milk and yogurt has been given a slight reprieve in the war on saturated fat, eating small amounts is OK. But you probably don't want to depend on cheese alone to get in the recommended three dairy servings a day, especially...

Health Tip: Exercise Portion Control

19 August 2019
(HealthDay News) -- To maintain a healthy weight, how much you eat is just as important as what you eat, says the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases. Your optimal portion size may or may not match the serving size listed on a product. It's dependent on your age, weight and metabolism, among other factors. To manage food portions at home, the agency recommends: Do not eat out of the box or bag. Take out a serving and eat it off a plate. Avoid eating in front of the TV or while busy with other activities. Focus on what you are eating, chew well and enjoy your food. Eat fewer high-fat, high-calorie foods. Freeze food you won't serve or eat right away. Eat meals at regular times. Buy low-calorie snacks.

FRIDAY, Aug. 16, 2019 (HealthDay News) -- Dairy foods have been getting a lot of attention from researchers in recent years, notably from studies done both jointly and separately by scientists at Harvard and Tufts universities. They looked at the relationship between full-fat dairy and the risks for heart disease and diabetes. A 3,000-participant study found that people who included dairy fat in their diet had a lower risk of diabetes. One theory for the link is that people who skip or limit dairy might compensate by eating more refined, low-fiber carbohydrates, which can increase diabetes risk. A study that followed more than 200,000 people over several decades looked at the relationship between dairy fat intake and heart disease. It found no increase in heart disease risk among...

Spice Up Your Meals With Habanero Chili Chutney

THURSDAY, Aug. 15, 2019 (HealthDay News) -- If you're a chili pepper lover who can take the heat, then take it to the next level with super spicy habaneros. Habaneros aren't for the faint of heart. They rank among some of the world's hottest chilies on the Scoville scale, which is used to measure the heat of all types of peppers. Habaneros have a round, almost pumpkin-like shape and come in a variety of colors, including orange and red. They also have a slight fruity aroma. Since they may be too spicy for some, a great way to serve them is with a chili chutney. Chutney is a thick, sweet condiment that can be served "on the side." It's a great way to turn adventurous people into chili fans. Before you get started, make sure your kitchen is well ventilated, since capsaicin, the active...
