Focus on nutrition and active lifestyle to help children establish healthy habits

My professional organization, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, has just announced its first-ever Kids Eat Right month. The goal is to focus on the importance of healthy nutrition and active lifestyle for children and families. Establishing these habits early in life increases the chances of turning around the staggering epidemic of early onset obesity and the diseases that follow.

Jazz up brown rice with a lime cilantro taste

If you think brown rice is boring, I would bet that you haven’t tried my recipe for lime cilantro brown rice. You may have enjoyed something similar at a local or chain restaurant and assumed that it would be too complicated to make at home.

Jennifer: Who owns Lodi Memorial Hospital? It’s clear it’s not affiliated with Kaiser Permanente or funded by taxpayers as many county hospitals are.

Why is the Galt Police Department not issuing tickets for left turns in the right turn only lane?

Dear Jennifer: With the recent opening of the new Walmart in Galt, I have noticed more traffic along Twin Cities Road. I don’t understand why the Galt police are not out issuing violations to drivers who turn left when the signs clearly depict right turns only.

Proper food choices are important during times of stress

Everyone experiences stress. It’s part of life for many, but if it becomes excessive, stress can increase the risk of high blood pressure, heart disease, obesity, cancer and many gastrointestinal disorders. Stress also affects nutrition. When the body is under stress, digestion and absorption of nutrients are impaired.

Is it legal to paint address numbers on the curb?

Dear Jennifer: A young man recently knocked on my door and, armed with paint, offered to touch up address numbers on the curb in front of my house. He said they are used by emergency vehicles. Does he need a permit to do this? More importantly, is it even legal? I thought the sidewalks were owned by the city.

Provide sweetness as well as nutrients to meals with nectarines

Although these hot days may leave you wishing for the weather to turn cooler, our bounty of delicious summer fruits and veggies are a pretty amazing trade off! Our kids especially look forward to the white nectarines they sample and we buy at Thursday night Farmers’ Market and Curry Farms on Turner Road. This week, I set a few aside for nectarine and berry compote, a recipe that Mia was so excited to be able to prepare with me on a recent episode of California Bountiful TV!

Klinker Brick’s Lodi Rosé is the ideal summer wine

Summer is here; and as usual, the weather has caught fire. Once upon a time, this would be the season when wine lovers reached for ice-chilled bottles of fizzy Portuguese pink wines in cute little bottles that could be turned into cheesy lamps or vases.

Master recipes provide a base for many dishes

Master recipes are incredibly helpful, as they provide the basis for so many dishes. A personal favorite, Mediterranean spread with cannellini beans, was one of my recipes featured in the latest issue of California Bountiful Magazine (May/June 2014 issue), along with a write up about me. (My first magazine appearance — very exciting!)

Borra’s Limited Edition White flavor bursts with crisp lime, green apple and pear-like fruit

What can’t Lodi grow well? Because the Delta’s moderate Mediterranean climate and rich sandy loams are so accommodating, the region grows the largest variety of classic wine grape in the U.S. With such a plethora to choose from, inevitably unexpected wines are crafted by some of the more adventurous winemakers — such as Markus Niggli, the Swiss born winemaker of Borra Vineyards, Lodi’s oldest family winery (bonded in 1975).
