Posted in Appetizers.

Roasted Red Bell Pepper and Artichoke “Tapenade”
Serves 14; 2 tablespoons per serving
12 ounces roasted red bell peppers, rinsed and drained if bottled
1/2 14-ounce can quartered artichoke hearts, rinsed and drained
2 ounces sliced button mushrooms
3 tablespoons chopped fresh basil leaves or 1 tablespoon dried basil, crumbled
2 to 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice or cider vinegar
2 tablespoons chopped red onion
2 medium garlic cloves, halved
2 tablespoons olive oil (extra-virgin preferred)
1/4 teaspoon salt
In a food processor or blender, pulse the bell peppers, artichokes, mushrooms, basil, lemon juice, onion, and garlic until coarse. Pour into a medium bowl. Stir in the oil and salt.
Cook’s Tip: To roast bell peppers, preheat the broiler. Lightly spray a broiler pan and rack with cooking spray. Broil the bell peppers on the broiler pan about 4 inches from the heat, turning until the peppers are charred all over. Or grill whole bell peppers over medium heat for 2 to 3 minutes on each side. Put the broiled or grilled peppers in a plastic or paper bag and close the bag or put them in a large bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Set aside for 5 to 20 minutes. Rinse the peppers with cold water, removing and discarding the skins. Cut the peppers in half and discard the cores, seeds, and stems. Blot the peppers dry with paper towels. Roasted bell peppers will keep in an airtight container in the freezer for up to four months.

Lower Blood Pressure With Chiropractic

Written by Dr.Scott Rosenthal. Posted in Family Health.

My first "real" patient ("real" meaning not another student!) during my internship has left lasting memories. I was in Atlanta that summer of 1991, and it was hot. Between being nervous from having the first patient ever of my new career gaze with desperation into my eyes, and the blue, polyester blend clinic jacket that covered my long-sleeve shirt and matching blue tie, the day felt even hotter! My patient was in extreme pain. My mind raced. I took deep breaths to stave off hyperventilation. Then the miracle happened. After weeks of chiropractic care, a welcomed surprise occurred in my first patient's life. The day ended with smiles. I survived. He survived... and he felt real relief!
