Help a Friend, Walk a Mile, Quick Fish Dish

Posted 03/30/2012 | By HealthCorps

If you know a friend is going to have surgery, ask how you can help. Offer to take her kids to school, walk the dog, shop for food, drop off prepared meals for a few days, or just sit with him or her. Surgery is stressful enough without having to ask for favors. Be proactive and be a good friend.

Driving just one mile less daily and walking that mile could mean a lot fewer obese people. Just burning an extra 100 calories/day could help you drop ten pounds in a year (if you don’t eat extra to compensate).

Combine Dijon mustard (1/2 tbsp), orange marmalade (2 tbsp) and a few drops of hot pepper sauce. Mix well and set aside. Take some small tuna fish steaks (1/4 inch thick), salt and pepper them and sear in a hot pan that you sprayed with a light coating of olive oil. Remove filets and add the liquid mixture to pan on low heat, stirring and cooking till marmalade melts. Remove and pour over tuna steaks. Serve over a bed of mixed greens, shredded carrots and thinly sliced shallots. If you like your salad dressed, use a flavored-vinegar mixed with a bit of olive oil and the juice of one squeezed orange.
