Dr. Tim Says....

Timothy S. Harlan, M.D.Does making a change in your life make a difference?

Yes it does..

I've been writing for years now about the significant impact making changes in what you eat can have on your health. There's a lot of research that I've reviewed to support this but much of this have been isolated studies on such things as whether legumes are good for you or the benefits of olive oil. That's not to say that there hasn't been research on what we call "lifestyle intervention" but this past week a group reported on a study of 800 participants and how profound an effect making changes in your life can be. Change Matters

Featured Recipe

Chili Rubbed Pork Tenderloin

Sliced Pork TenderloinI like food that’s slightly spiced like this recipe. Simple rubs using chilies, cumin, paprika, nutmeg, etc. are really fantastic. The best part is that recipes like this one are just as good cold as when they are just off the stove. This pork tenderloin and the Cumin, Black Eyes and Corn Salad (Low Sodium Version) are the perfect picnic food.

This recipe is safe for Coumadin (warfarin) users, low in sodium, gluten-free and lactose-free. Those with GERD / Acid Reflux should avoid it.

Eating Gluten Free
with Julie Gee

Julie GeeFood is a major part of our everyday lives. When you have Celiac Disease, eating away from home can be a challenge. As you've progressed with your understanding of Celiac Disease, you've most likely discovered a wide variety of interesting and tasty gluten-free foods. Preparation and anticipation are critical to maintaining your gluten-free diet in challenging situations away from home. The first situation we'll discuss is eating at work or school.

Many of us work in environments where fast food or take-out is readily available during work hours. Living with Celiac Disease requires a shift in your daily habits and thinking. My first suggestion is to keep some non-perishable snacks at your desk and bring a brown bag lunch whenever possible. Eating Gluten-Free in Social Situations: Lunch
