Dr. Tim Says....

Timothy S. Harlan, M.D.The recent report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is certainly alarming: it says that the number of Americans with diabetes will double or triple in the next forty years. If they're right, we'll see up to 1 in 3 of all Americans affected. The vast majority of these new cases will be Type 2 diabetes: people whose bodies continue to make insulin for regulating their blood sugars, but their bodies don’t use it properly.

Those who are already at a higher risk of developing type 2 diabetes include people who are older and with a family history of the disease, as well as being African American or Hispanic. Even so, Type 2 diabetes most commonly develops in those who are overweight or obese. Bad News, Good News – Diabetes On The Rise, But There's A Solution

Flank Steak with Espresso Rub

Steak on the grillThis is a fabulous and savory rub for steak. It's a great idea to keep instant espresso on hand - you can use it in a lot of recipes. (You could use instant coffee granules in this recipe, but the flavor will be much milder.) You could also use a cup of liquid espresso, but you would need to reduce it by about half. Put the espresso in a small pan over medium-high heat and simmer until reduced. Let cool and add the spices and oil.

Goat Cheese Mashed Potatoes with Basil Oil

Mashed PotatoesI love having herbed oil on hand. Basil oil is a great choice and is especially delicious in this recipe. You can use any herb oil you want to for this recipe – rosemary or thyme oil, for instance, will give these potatoes a lovely herbaceous flavor. (You could, of course, leave the oil out as well.)
