Dining Do’s and Don’ts: 4 Tips To Make Healthier and Tasty…

Avoid “double cheese,” sausage or pepperoni. If you crave pasta, stick with tomato-based sauce instead of cream sauce. Have your spaghetti as a side dish (one cup) alongside salad and chicken, rather than as a main entrée, which can be several cups.Chinese — Vegetables are a mainstay of Chinese food, with greens such as bok choy, gai lan and broccoli taking a front seat. Replace some of your noodles or rice with extra vegetables. Opt for stir-fried dishes rather than deep-fried options such as egg rolls or breaded chicken. Get high-sodium black bean or soy sauce served on the side, and use them sparingly.Indian — Enjoying Indian food is a tasty way to eat more fiber-rich beans. Opt for dal (spiced lentils, peas or beans) made without too much oil, or try chickpea curry. Tandoori meats are a delicious and lean choice. Limit dishes made with lots of oil, ghee or coconut milk (the calories add up quickly), and rely on flavor from spices instead. Order dishes with gobi (cauliflower) or palak (spinach).Greek — Grilled meat and chicken are lean, but they’re usually served with potatoes AND rice. Replace one of them with vegetables. Go easy on the salty dips such as taramosalata. Start with a cucumber and tomato salad instead.Most menus are filled with refined grains. Always choose whole-grain options when available. If refined grains are the only choice, keep the serving size small. And since restaurant portions are oversized, get in the habit of saving half for later or share.  Have you ever gone to a restaurant intending to eat something healthy, only to have your plans quickly derailed? We spoke with Sherri Flynt, registered/licensed dietitian at Florida Hospital, about what you can do to stay on track while dining. She offers a guide to four common nutritional traps — a flood of fat, carb overload, deep-fried dangers and bloated portions — in four popular cuisines so you can make smart choices while savoring every bite.

Seal of approval

first_imgIt’s a sign of our environmentally conscious times that reducing food waste was one of the driving factors behind Honeytop Speciality Foods’ decision to invest in technology for applying resealable closures to a line of own-label tortilla wraps.The Zip-Pak ’press-to-close’ seal means that shoppers can keep their tortilla wraps fresh between meals, thereby reducing wastage. What’s equally important is that it also helps the products to stand out on shelf, says Honeytop joint MD David Laurence. “This new machine and the reclosable packaging help us to differentiate our products. Reclosable packaging offers consumers the added flexibility and convenience they demand.”The closure is applied using a ZipPak Reseal 360XM applicator unit attached to a Fuji Alpha flow-wrapper. According to Fuji’s technical manager Charles Ingham, the applicator unit applies the seal to the film as the product is wrapped – a more cost-effective method than using pre-made bags or film with the seals pre-applied.”Pre-made bags have to be filled individually, while if it is pre-applied to the film, you can get less on a reel, which means more change-overs,” he says. Even so, having to apply a seal does still slow down flow-wrapping speeds, with the Alpha’s top rate of 120 packs per minute cut by around half.In plant bread, consumers have long been able to reseal their loaves, thanks to the sticky plastic tape used to close the bags. But even the simplest designs can be improved as evidenced by a tape application machine from the newly launched UK subsidiary of US company Burford Corporation. As well as applying tape to bags of plant bread, the TCS Tamper Evident Tape Closure System also applies a paper strip across the ’legs’ of the tape, which makes it easier to pull apart and acts as a tamper-evident seal.”It provides another way for bread companies to demonstrate due diligence and the integrity of their product,” says the company’s UK sales manager Terry O’Donoghue. “The machine is designed completely differently to others on the market, with a different concept for applying tape. The type of rollers we use means we can apply tape with a stronger level of adhesive, which means they are easier to reseal and bags are less likely to burst open.”The TCS, which runs at over 80 loaves per minute and has already been taken up by Hovis and Vogel, incorporates a Markem Smartdate 5 thermal printer for codes and ’sell by’ information. Options include manual or automatic tie height adjustment and the machine will work with a number of substrates including polyethylene, polypropylene and paper bags.Select Bag Sealers has also introduced new bag-sealing technology recently, which ensures tape and printed information is applied extremely accurately. Launched last year, the SBS-Thurne Flexi Sealer can be electronically raised and lowered, as well as adjusted width-ways, to adapt to different-sized products, thereby ensuring the tape is accurately applied. “This is extremely important because information on the seal is required for essential point-of-tie information such as traceability codes,” says sales manager Nick Kemp. “Other sealers cannot guarantee the position of the print as accurately.”Accurate application of seals also ensures the bread inside is tightly packaged, eliminating the possibility that it could slant to one side. Speeds of up to 95 bags per minute can be achieved, depending on product, and the machine is available in two models – 90mm length seal format for standard polythene bags or 110mm for thick polypropylene or paper.last_img read more

CHAMPION BEHOLDER RETURNS TO WIN GRADE III, $100,000 ADORATION BY 2 ½ LENGTHS AS STEVENS, MANDELLA & HUGHES TEAM FOR 1 1/16 MILES WIN IN 1:42.73

first_imgOWNER HUGHES SAYS GOAL IS TO FACE NYQUIST IN BREEDERS’ CUP CLASSIC IN NOVEMBER AND TO RUN AGAIN IN 2017 AT AGE SEVEN ARCADIA, Calif. (May 8, 2016)–Idle since Sept. 26 and the prohibitive 1-9 favorite, Spendthrift Farm’s Beholder made short work of five rivals in taking Sunday’s Grade III, $100,000 Adoration Stakes by 2 ½ measured lengths under Gary Stevens. Trained by Richard Mandella, the three-time Eclipse Award winner got 1 1/16 miles under a snug hold in 1:42.73.Breaking from the far outside, the 6-year-old mare by Henny Hughes relaxed well but was caught four-wide into the Club House turn outside Moyo Honey, All Star Bub and Sheer Pleasure. Approaching the three furlong pole, Beholder was a length off Sheer Pleasure and took command while in-hand leaving the quarter pole.“She left there sweet like she always does,” said Stevens, who has now guided Beholder to victory in 10 of his 11 engagements with her. “She went over (to the gate) super, super quiet today. I almost thought I had her too quiet. Richard does all the work, along with (regular exercise rider) Janeen (Painter) and the whole crew and I get to have all the fun, and that’s all it was, was fun.“Being off as long as she has is a tribute to Richard and Mr. Hughes showing that kind of patience. The sky’s the limit for her. She didn’t take so much as a deep breath when I pulled her up. She’s a very happy mare.”In what has become a regular occurrence, Beholder, who had $692,457 bet to show on her, created a minus show pool of $137,142. She paid $2.10, $2.10 and $2.10.“She was supposed to win this race, and that usually makes trainers more nervous than anything, because you realize how bad you look if you get them beat,” said Mandella. “The Vanity ($400,000, Grade I, one mile on June 4) looks like the next step.”Spendthrift owner, B. Wayne Hughes, pointed out that he’d flown Stevens back from yesterday’s Kentucky Derby in his private jet to ensure the Hall of Fame jockey was back at The Great Race Place in time to ride his superstar mare, who he said would be pointed to a hopeful engagement with Nyquist in the $5 million Breeders’ Cup Classic at Santa Anita on Nov. 5.“Not only am I still thinking about going up against the boys, but I want Nyquist to be the Triple Crown winner,” said Hughes. “We were hoping to run against American Pharoah, but she got sick and we weren’t able to. It’s very important to us to be able to take a shot at a Triple Crown winner. I think it would be amazing.“I had a long talk with Gary on the plane flying back this morning and he told me she’s bigger and better than she ever was before…It was my decision to run her at age six, but Richard approved it. If she has a good year this year, I’ll do it again next year at age seven.”In winning the Adoration, Beholder improved her record at Santa Anita to 12 wins from 13 starts and her overall mark now stands at 21-16-3-0. With the winner’s share of $60,000, she increased her earnings to $4,496,600.Ridden by Martin Garcia, Sheer Pleasure was off at 7-1 and paid $2.40 and $2.10.All Star Bub checked in third with Rafael Bejarano and paid $2.60 to show.Fractions on the race were 24.01, 48.25, 1:12.44 and 1:36.44.Racing resumes at Santa Anita on Thursday with first post time at 2 p.m.last_img read more
