After over 25 years of publishing DrGourmet.com and our weekly newsletters we are going to be making a significant transition. After over 6,000 newsletters and hundreds and hundreds of recipes, thousands of columns, and hundreds of questions answered, we will stop publishing today.

The recipes and information that many of you have told us you rely on will not be going away, but in the next few days will be incorporated into a larger and important Culinary Medicine project. Within the next few days all links to DrGourmet.com will be redirected to our new home at mds.CulinaryMedicine.org. We hope you'll visit!

With this transition we will be launching an exciting new application - a menu builder - and we'll continue to feature robust content for you to continue eating great food that just happens to be great for you.

In the coming weeks our subscribers will begin receiving a new newsletter, less often but with the great information that can help you keep eating great food.

Over the years we have heard from many of you how much our work has helped you be healthier. It has made all of our hard work more than worth the effort, and I hope that you will find the new offerings just as valuable.

Thank you so much for these 25 fantastic years.

Timothy S. Harlan, MD, FACP, CCMS

Featured Recipes

Mussels in Curry Sauce

The touch of curry with garlic and shallots is a perfect complement to the sweet mussels. The fresh herbs really bring the dish to life and you can use almost anything you have on hand -- parsley, chives, oregano, or a bit of fresh thyme.

Chicken and Veggie Lettuce Cups

This is a really fun recipe to make especially for serving with kids. The stuffed lettuce cups with the veggies and chicken are full of great flavor and this is a great snack but can be a great meal also.

Shrimp with Chili Lime Butter

Shrimp with Chili Lime Butter

Shrimp dishes are great because they are just so darn quick. The hardest part of making dinner is deciding what to go with your shrimp.

This recipe is a great example and is perfect for a quick weeknight dinner. It is super simple to mix up some yummy butter, put a bit of olive oil in a pan, sauté your shrimp and add the butter to make a great sauce.

Mexican Rice

This is a perfect recipe for those who think that they don't like brown rice. Cooking the rice a little bit longer will soften the brown rice, and adding the spices only enhances the nutty flavor. It's perfect for your family - they may never know that it's brown rice.
