There are things I love about every season, but I have to admit that summer is my favorite season of all. If you’re a summer person, too, I’m sure we share the same reasons for it: sun, sand, swimming, outdoor adventures, and eating—enjoying the abundance of wonderful fresh-cut (and fresh-caught) produce and fish. As George Gershwin famously wrote and everyone from Ella Fitzgerald to Billie Holliday to Sublime sang,“Summertime, and the livin’ is easy.” That’s why I love the season so. In summer I have some extra time to plop into a beach chair and do a much-needed midyear review. How’s life going? How are my family and friends? Is the business on track? Am I happy? And, most important, How’s my health? That last question is critical because without good health, it’s…

BOOST YOUR BRAIN POWER Put your foot down to keep your mind sharp As you know, walking or running is a great way to clear your head. Now new research demonstrates that it’s also a good way to boost your brainpower. Researchers at New Mexico Highlands University (NMHU) found that every step boosts the blood supply to your brain. When your foot hits the ground, the impact sends pressure waves through your arteries, which increases blood flow to the brain. That’s important for healthy cognitive function because blood flow carries oxygen and nutrients to your gray matter. Using ultrasound to measure arterial blood velocity waves, the researchers found that although running creates a greater foot impact, walking still produces the larger pressure waves that significantly drive blood flow to the brain. The key…

NIX TEXTING Multitasking is better in theory than in practice. Take exercise, for example. People who try to catch up on communications by talking on a cell phone or texting while they exercise invariably lower the intensity and benefits of their workout, according to a study conducted by Bloomsburg University of Pennsylvania. When your mind is distracted by communicating, your speed and intensity lowers and your postural stability suffers, increasing your risk of injury by up to 45 percent, say researchers. ALOE, I LOVE YOU No doubt, you’ve applied the juicy gel of this succulent to soothe your sunburn skin. Now it seems the aloe plant, which is loaded with powerful compounds, is beneficial to your insides, too. A meta-analysis published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine found that prediabetic and…

TIPSY MIXER In an Australian study, eight men were given an alcoholic beverage made with an artificially sweetened mixer one day and one made with a non-diet mixer the next. Blood tests revealed that the diet drinks caused more alcohol to be absorbed into the bloodstream compared to drinks made with non-diet mixers. Why? Lack of sugar, which slows the body’s absorption of alcohol. HE AIN’T HEAVY, HE’S MY WAITER It’s well documented that lighting, wall colors, music, and even where you sit in a restaurant can influence what you order and how many calories you consume at that meal. But did you know that a jolly waiter wearing suspenders could encourage you to eat more, too? According to a study from the Cornell Food and Brand Lab, customers who order from an…

GLUTEN-FREE DOESN’T MEAN WORRY-FREE Using data from three long-term health studies, Harvard University researchers found that the people who ate the most gluten had a 13 percent lower risk of developing type 2 diabetes than the people with the lowest gluten consumption. “Gluten-free foods often have less dietary fiber, making them less nutritious,”said Geng Zong, PhD, of Harvard.“People without celiac disease may reconsider limiting gluten intake for disease prevention, especially for diabetes.” KEEP YOUR MEAT MOIST Using leaner cuts of meat, such as loin or round, can mean dinner turns out a bit dry because such cuts contain less fat. But you can get around that problem and still reduce your saturated fat intake by choosing a different cooking method for leaner cuts. Try a moist-heat style of cooking like simmering or braising…

add fruit to the fire

Don’t let meat monopolize your grill this summer. Toss sliced watermelon, peaches, pineapple, plums, strawberries, mangoes, and even bananas onto the grate of your charcoal or gas grill to enjoy one of summertime’s greatest culinary pleasures. Grilling caramelizes the natural sugars in fruit, intensifying its sweetness and adding a beautiful char that infuses the fruit with smoky notes. Dessert is the obvious course for grilled fruit, maybe with a bit of homemade whipped cream or Greek yogurt, but making it part of your main meal or as a side dish will measurably elevate your grilling game. Try the recipes below, or experiment on your own. But first, use these six tips to make fruit grilling easier and tastier. Use fruit that’s barely ripe and firm. Overripe grilled fruit can get mushy.
