Wellness Tip
Reducing Fat
Looking for a good way to reduce the saturated fat content of soups and stews? Try refrigerating them overnight. Much of the fat will rise to the top of the cooled mixture and become solid. Then you can easily remove it with a slotted spoon. Improve your chances of achieving your new year's health goals. Be specific. Instead of promising to lose 15 pounds, state how you will do it. For example, say that you will add 40 minute walks along the lake front or workouts at the health club, 4 times a week. Use a simple tracking system, perhaps check marks on a calendar, to help you keep your focus.

Vegetarian Coconut Chili
Category: Vegetarian Entrees
Description: This chili has just a hint of coconut to add a tasty twist. If you want a stronger coconut flavour simply replace the vegetable stock with coconut milk.
For much of the last few decades, coconut oil got a bad rap in mainstream media. Critics said it was high in cholesterol and fat, and so many people did not include in in their daily diets. But island populations around the world have celebrated the coconut for centuries for its health benefits, using the meat juice, milk and oil the fruit provides in everything from cooking to disease prevention. Modern medicine is now jumping on the bandwagon and releasing its own findings on the health benefits of coconut.
