    Hospital food usually brings on thoughts of mystery meat and foul smelling meals, but in the last several years Medical Center Hospital has strived to change that offering a variety of options from healthy snacks to watching their selection being prepared in front of them. MCH President and CEO Rick Napper said plans are to expand to offer outdoor seating and more seating inside. Vice President of Operations Matt Collins said plans are to renovate the cafeteria in April and finish in about three weeks.

    LaRue: Make pasta salad with a twist – Food and Dining – Lubbock Avalanche-Journal

    [Editor’s note: Food Made Fresh will return to its regular spot in the Wednesday Avalanche-Journal this week. It’s not too late for a backyard barbecue to celebrate the change of seasons. Good side dishes make it that much better.

    A twist on the Mediterranean diet is ‘ideal’ for heart health, doctors declare

    If you were to design the ideal eating plan for a healthy heart, plenty of evidence suggests it would be the Pesco-Mediterranean diet with daily intermittent fasting built in, a group of doctors declared this week. It’s still the plant-rich, olive oil-lubricated Mediterranean diet most people are familiar with, but with more emphasis on seafood as the main source of animal protein. This style of eating has many benefits, especially when it comes to long-term cardiovascular health and longevity, the authors wrote in a review of studies, published Monday in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.

    The best summer bread recipes, from cherry focaccia to a tomato and basil twist

    summer bread – Haarala Hamilton Bread is fundamental, the most basic food in many cultures, hallowed in some (if a piece of bread falls to the floor in Morocco, it’s retrieved and kissed). It’s cheap to make, filling and is used as either plate or container for other foods – think of flatbreads, sandwiches and wraps. Access to it is almost a right. Its scarcity contributed to the French revolution and its removal – in Syria, the Assad regime has deliberately bombed bakeries – is a weapon of war. In the UK, jam sandwiches have provided sustenance for the working
