Healthy Super Bowl Food? Marlene Koch Believes It's Possible

Healthy Super Bowl Food? Marlene Koch Believes It's Possible

The 'Eat More of What You Love' author gives her tips for satisfying snack options

You may not believe that your Super Bowl party can be healthy and delicious, but if anyone can pull it off it’s Marlene Koch. Her legions of followers would agree — Koch’s most recent book, Eat More of What You Love, was the country’s fourth most popular cookbook this year.

Koch believes that bettering your Super Bowl menu is a necessity. As she pointed out, "The Super Bowl is the second-highest caloric day for people, after Thanksgiving." But it’s not a matter of just putting out boring veggie plates with low-fat dip. Koch recommends cheesy nachos, but she adds beans for bulk, uses a leaner beef and a reduced-fat chip and mixes chicken stock into the cheese. Her recipe takes a 680-calorie dip and turns it into only 160 calories. "It’s the kind of eating big you can do and still stay small," she says. She also suggests a caramelized onion dip with light cream cheese and light mayonnaise.

For more of Koch's tips watch the video above and make sure to pick up her best-selling Eat More of What You Love to make sure you have all the game day recipes!

Daimler Disagrees With Tesla and VW’s Batteries-or-Bust View

(Bloomberg) -- Daimler AG’s truck chief expects hydrogen-powered big rigs to play an important role in slashing emissions from the transportation sector despite the technological hurdles and skepticism raised by two prominent rivals.Focusing solely on battery-electric vehicles would be risky because of the scarcity of certain raw materials and challenges grids will have supporting wide-ranging charging networks for trucks and buses, Martin Daum, Daimler Truck’s chief executive officer, said in a phone interview.“We cannot afford to bank on just one technology to reach the climate goals,” Daum said. “The focus until 2025 will be 100% on battery-electric vehicles. Between 2025 and 2035, we’re going to need both battery-electric and fuel cell vehicles because the massively growing infrastructure requirements require a two-legged approach.”Fuel cells, which generate electricity from hydrogen and therefore eliminate the need to recharge batteries, have been touted for years as a potential alternative to combustion engines. But high costs and sparse fueling infrastructure have stood in the way of broader adoption and left the technology far behind battery-electric powertrains in the passenger-car market.Electrifying commercial vehicles is more complex -- they’re larger, heavier and used for everything from deliveries to supermarkets in urban areas to long-haul transport in remote areas. Daimler recently formed a joint venture with rival Volvo AB to jointly develop fuel cell stacks.Daimler’s DetractorsWhile prominent industry leaders including Tesla Inc.’s Elon Musk and Volkswagen AG’s Herbert Diess have repeatedly criticized fuel cells and argued battery power is the only way forward, Daimler and Volvo aren’t alone in seeing long-term potential.“Decarbonization of the energy mix represents the most profound shift in energy since the start of the industrial revolution,” Sanford Bernstein analysts led by Neil Beveridge said in a note to clients. “It is simply impossible to reach net zero by 2050 without hydrogen playing a major role.”Daimler’s truck division is the world’s largest maker of commercial vehicles and on track to be spun off from the Mercedes-Benz luxury-car operations this year. The split reflects the diverging technology trends between passenger cars and commercial vehicles. Both will need enormous investment in new technology to comply with stricter emissions standards.Daum, 61, mapped out more aggressive profitability targets on Thursday and objectives to generate the funds needed to navigate the industry’s transformation.“We want to be a resilient company that can avoid losses even in difficult years,” he said. The unit plans to list at the Frankfurt stock exchange later this year and could enter the country’s blue-chip DAX Index.Global PresenceDaimler boasts a truly global footprint that’s unique among commercial-vehicle manufacturers. While Volvo just trimmed its presence in Asia by selling its UD Trucks business in Japan, VW’s Traton SE unit is finishing its takeover of U.S. truckmaker Navistar International Corp. next quarter.Apart from Mercedes trucks, Daimler’s trucks and buses division comprises Fuso in Japan, BharatBenz in India, Setra in Germany and Freightliner, Thomas Built and Western Star in North America.The company has relied heavily on profits from Freightliner in recent years, as North America tends to generate much of the industry’s earnings. Executives said Thursday that boosting profitability at European operations will be a top priority and pledged to reduce personnel and material costs to become more competitive in the region.Asked whether Daimler may consider an acquisition of CNH Industrial NV’s Italian business Iveco, Daum said his focus is on the company’s own operations. “I don’t see the need for us to add an asset to our European business,” he said. “There are no plans for any structural changes.”More stories like this are available on bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.

Absa Is Said in Talks to Sell Asset Management Unit to Sanlam

(Bloomberg) -- Absa Group Ltd. is in talks to sell part or all of its asset-management business to Africa’s largest insurer, a deal that could create a firm with more than 900 billion rand ($65 billion) in assets, according to people familiar with the matter.South Africa’s third-largest lender is in discussions with both Sanlam Ltd. and partner African Rainbow Capital Investments Ltd. about a deal, said the people, who asked not to be named because the discussions are private. No decision has been reached and an agreement may not be concluded, they said.A combination of the Absa business with the Sanlam-owned equivalent would become one of the country’s largest money managers, behind the state-owned Public Investment Corp. The negotiating parties see room for further growth as the sector is otherwise populated with a number of small players, the people said.Absa and Sanlam declined to comment. ARC, the investment vehicle of South African billionaire Patrice Motsepe, said it couldn’t comment on any talks with potential new partners.The talks are taking place after Absa announced a decision to unwind its $6 billion money-market mutual fund, citing risks to the bank due to clients’ belief its investments held the same degree of safety as cash in a savings account. The move fueled speculation that Absa may really be looking for a buyer.Absa is currently being run by interim Chief Executive Officer Jason Quinn after former head Daniel Mminele quit following a disagreement over strategy last month.African Rainbow Capital last year acquired a 25% stake in Sanlam’s asset management arm. At the end of last year, Sanlam Investments had about 649 billion rand in assets under management.Absa’s investment management unit oversaw 263 billion rand at the end of December.More stories like this are available on bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2021 Bloomberg L.P.

Morning Routine

Today I thought I would share what my morning routine looks like, as a mom of 5.

Usually my body just wakes up around 5 o'clock, but if it doesn't then my alarm goes off at 5:30 and I get up. That's when I will let the dogs outside, use the bathroom, and weight myself.

Then I go into the kitchen and turn on the coffee pot, and then pour myself a cup of coffee. After getting my coffee, I walk back into my bedroom, sit down at my desk, and enjoy my cup of coffee, while chatting with my husband (who is also enjoying a cup of coffee).

Once i'm done with my coffee, I grab out my bullet journal and work on that for a little while (my husband is usually leaving for work at this point). In my bullet journal, I keep track of all my health/fitness stuff so that's usually what i'm entering into my journal in the morning.

After that, I try to get moving. I start with picking up my bedroom. I make the bed, pick up stuff off the floor, put away any laundry laying around, etc..

Then, at this point, I am just waiting for 7 o'clock to come around (when the children wake up), so I might read a book, watch a YouTube video, write a blog post, or check my social media accounts, to kill some time.

7 o'clock rolls around, and all the children start to wake up. That's when I start making breakfast, after some morning snuggles with the littles. By 7:30 we are eating breakfast.

After breakfast, I clean up the kitchen (dishes, wipe down counters, etc.), then I start a load of laundry for the day. Once my morning chores have been done, I help the 2 youngest get dressed and ready for the day.

Then I get myself ready for the day, and then once i'm done it is usually almost 8 o'clock (which is when we start school). I call the 3 oldest to get their schoolwork and come to the table. We get started with math first (which we do for 1 hour) and while I go back and forth helping the 3 oldest with any math problems they are struggling with, I am also working with my 4 year old with his preschool work.

Then the rest of my morning is spent helping children with schoolwork, keeping the toddler entertained, and trying to move around as much as possible (so that i get my 10,000+ steps every day).

So that's what my mornings looks like pretty much every day, with the exception of the weekends. However, i still wake up at the same time on the weekends, and do most of the same things in the morning, with the only exception being schoolwork with the children.

Artichoke Dip

Artichoke Dip is a crowd-pleasing favorite at parties and events like the Super Bowl. It normally comes loaded with cheese, which can make it very unhealthy, but it does not have to be that way. You can substitute healthy ingredients in place of the unhealthy ones, and still have a dish that people will love and thank you for. The cost of this dish is approximately five dollars total, so this one is also budget-friendly.

  • 1 Can Artichoke Hearts (drained and chopped)
  • 1/2 Cup Light Mayonnaise
  • 1/2 Cup Light Cream Cheese
  • 3/4 Cup Grated Parmesan Cheese (divided in two)
  • 1 Cup Skim Shredded Mozzarella (divided in two)
  • 1/2 Tsp. Garlic Salt
  • 1/2 Tsp. Pepper
  • 1 Tbsp. Scallions (chopped)

Heat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Stir together artichokes, mayonnaise, cream cheese, 1/2 cup Parmesan, 3/4 cup mozzarella, garlic salt, pepper, and scallions. Place in a baking dish. Top with the rest of the cheese and bake for 20 minutes. The dish should be golden and bubbly. Serve with pita chips or veggies.

Thai Inspired Tuna Salad

We are introducing a new category on the Vreeland Clinic’s Blog….Recipes. I love food and as the person in our household who does the grocery shopping and cooking I want to make meals that both taste good and are healthy. Now, if you are a regular reader you know that for us “healthy” means eating protein, lots of vegetables and low glycemic fruit, good fats, and keeping the processed food and grain based carbohydrates to a minimum. Often, I find a recipe that calls for a grain or sugar which I omit or substitute something else. You’ll find those recipes with my edits in this section.

Additionally, one of the biggest obstacles for someone who is starting a program with us and changing their diet is figuring out what to cook. For those accustomed to a Standard American Diet it can be a little overwhelming and my hope is that this section of the blog will be a great resource for them. I also hope that it is a resource for those who’ve been on the program for years. I know I always love trying new things!

I had a brainstorm the other day standing in line at the deli counter of one of our local grocery stores. The store had prepared Thai Tuna Burgers. They looked delicious and most of the ingredients were in line with our eating plan but they of course contained bread crumbs or something to bind them together. I realized I could use those flavors in our tuna salad. We eat a lot of tuna salad as it’s a great protein source and has anti-inflammatory omega-3 fatty acids. Here is my creation. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did. I know we’ll be adding it to the tuna salad rotation.

Thai Tuna Salad

¼ c. cashews, chopped (I used roasted because it’s what I had on hand)

½ c. fresh cilantro, finely chopped

1 c. of mayo (use less if you like your tuna salad drier and more if you don’t)

Combine tuna, onion, cashews, cilantro and hard-boiled eggs in a bowel. Squeeze the lime over the mixture. Add mayo and mix. Enjoy with some raw veggies or over a bed of mixed greens!

Feel free to add some red pepper flakes to spice it up a little.

It’s Never Too Late

Point to Ponder: Is there something that you have been putting off that you have been wanting to do?

by Neissa Brown Springmann

Like me, I’m guessing that prior to last Thursday you had never heard of Orville Rogers. It wasn’t until iGnite leader, Alli Phillips, sent our team a video of Orville, at 99 years young man racing and beating his 92 year old competitor in the 60 meter sprint during the Masters Indoor Track Championship that I learned who he was. The now viral video is certainly inspiring, but on Saturday morning, while doing my mundane weekend laundry folding and listening to the national news, I saw an interview with Orville and heard his hardly mundane and impactful story.

In this 3-minute interview, Orville revealed that as a result of reading the book Aerobics by Kenneth Cooper when he was 50-years old, he began running. Incredibly, in the almost 50-years that Orville has been running, he has logged over 42 thousand miles! When asked about his workout routine, he said that 3 times a week he warms up with a lot of stretching and time on the Elliptical machine followed by slowly running 3 miles. Even more impressive are the 2, 100 meter wind sprints that he tops off his 3-miles with. In addition, he strength trains, eats fish and chicken 6 days a week, red meat 1 day, and plenty of colorful fruits and veggies. He also added that he takes a daily multivitamin and gets a physical once per year at the Cooper Clinic in Dallas. When asked what gives him his spiritual edge, he said he believes in God, considers himself blessed and has a wonderful family who he plans to celebrate his 100th birthday on November 28th with after he participates in the Masters Outdoor Track & Field Championship this summer in Baton Rouge. His motto is “You don’t stop running because you get old. You get old because you stop running.”

Every bit of this World War II pilot and world record holder’s story is inspiring, but the part that made the greatest impression on me was that he didn’t begin running until he was 50 years old, which is typically when people end their running routine. In addition, he sees his commitment to his health as a means of honoring his temple so that he can serve to his greatest ability. Furthermore, when he was 90 years old old he went skydiving for the first time and at 93, he went hang-gliding.

Besides the word “stud”, there’s only one other set of words that best describes Orville and that’s a fearless go-getter. That being said, I really wonder which came first–the chicken or the egg? Was Orville born eager and fearless or did his life experiences create a can-do fearlessness spirit in him? Did he become this was after surviving World War II and flying for many years as a commercial pilot? I guess we’ll never know, but I can’t help but think that environment has something to do with it, as his “go for it” attitude was a part of his daily life and it continues to be.

While some fear and hesitation is healthy, by in large, fear really ticks me off because I believe that most of it is bogus, irrational and unfortunately, grows with age. Research from the National Institute of Mental Health found that 60% of the things we fear will never come true 90% of the things we fear are considered insignificant and 88% of the things we fear about our health will never happen. As this relates to our daily lives, fear and not being willing to “go for it” single-handedly prevents us from trying new things, creating new relationships, exploring new careers, and therefore living the big and bold life that I believe God created us to live. Ultimately, it undermines faith and puts God in a box.

When making the bold decision to regularly put ourselves our there and go for something we’ve been putting off or have told ourselves we can’t do, it will be deliciously terrifying. However, just as passing up opportunities is addictive, so is going for it and saying “yes”!

No one knows, at least I haven’t found it in an article or heard in an interview, if Orville Rogers was nervous or hesitant to go on his first run. I assume he considered that it would be uncomfortable, probably hurt and he likely would not be able to complete the whole distance. None-the-less, his decision to go for it at 50 years old has now bloomed into him being a 99 year old You Tube sensation who is getting to share his inspiring story on television and on the internet and making the case that no matter how old we are, if we want to do something, we should go for it!
