Why do some people become seriously ill while exercising in hot weather and others don’t?

Now you don’t have to feel guilty about buying your kids that convenience-store slushie. Pre-cooling before hot-weather exertion improves the body’s ability to cope in the heat.

We don’t advise wearing an icy collar like the athletes in this study, but it’s good to know that putting an icy compress on your neck on a hot day will cool you down.

A good head-dousing isn’t just a way to celebrate a championship. It’s also a smart way to keep your body cool in the heat.

The Happiness that Whole Foods Bring


16 Sivan, 5776

I posted a recipe for home made pesto a while back, and I've enjoyed tinkering with it over time.

I also have a hobby of helping patients in a local hospital when they simply cannot stomach hospital food. I bring them home-made fare loaded with nutrition, flavor and pleasure-providing texture. The medical staff notices that they tend to do better soon after eating my home-cooked meals.

This month I helped a friend, and he's been doing a review series on Facebook about everything I made for him (a LOT!). I doubt that any professional chefs have enjoyed such fun at having their hard efforts praised in public. 

My friend is making more medical progress, thank GOD. Here's a peek at his humor-filled food review series in progress:

Continuing with my reviews of Yocheved Golani's meals for me:
This is a home made pesto on rice cracker. Most pestos are purees, heavy on oil. This is a rather dry pesto with stems and leaves relatively intact. It's hard to describe the texture, almost like a dry rub. Delightfully different.
Yocheved Golani Fennel greens blended with Brazil nuts, pumpkin plus sunflower seeds, Himalayan salt and grapeseed oil, preserved with a spritz of fresh-squeezed lemon juice. I'm so happy that you enjoyed the lively mixture.

Ira Machefsky Interesting. I usually don't like Fennel because of the licorice taste. Maybe the leaves are different.

Yocheved Golani The organic nuts and seeds bring a bouquet of flavor and aroma to the hand-made pesto. It ain't yer store-bought stuff.
