You know how they say that an apple a day keeps the doc away? Well with getting that daily dose of vitamin "C" it sure makes sense. But how many plain apples can you eat without getting a case of the "dulldrums"? How about trying a refreshing salad recipe as a lunch or side dish that now only has APPLES but is low in fat, sodium & virtually Cholesterol Free.
It's a COLD TORTELLINI APPLE SALAD that uses the refrigerated cheese tortellini so it's easy on the schedule. This is a great lunch idea too for bringing to work but be sure to keep it chilled until ready to eat. Something like this makes it easy to get your daily dose of that "C".
COLD TORTELLINI APPLE SALAD
3 tablespoons concentrated apple juice (you can get this frozen)
3 tablespoons light corn syrup
1 teaspoon cider vinegar
2 teaspoons firmly packed brown sugar
1/8 teaspoon garlic salt
1 package refrigerated cheese tortellini (9 ounce)
2 cups chopped apples
2 cups shredded salad greens
1 cup of mandarin orange slices or strawberries when accessable
1/2 cup thin sliced celery
1/4 cup sliced green onions
2 tablespoons pine nuts
Combine apple juice concentrate, corn syrup, vinegar, sugar, garlic salt and pepper. Cover and refrigerate. Cook the cheese tortellini according to package directions. Drain and cool thoroughly. In large mixing bowl combine tortellini and remaining ingredients. Toss gently with apple juice dressing and serve immediately.

STARVE A COLD...FEED A FEVER?
Or is it feed a fever... starve a cold?
Or is it "Starve a fever and feed a cold"? I always used to get that saying mixed up but with cold and flu season upon us it's a good time for some prevention tips. As simple as it sounds, good hand washing will reduce the incidence of bacterial and viral infections by one-third to one half and stomach viruses by up to 80%!
Practice a ritual of good hand washing by using these tips:
1. Use warm water.
2. lather up for at least 15 seconds (I learned on Oprah last year to sing one verse of "Happy Birthday" to yourself to keep track of this and haven't been able to get it out of my head since.)
3. Rub front of hands together to cause friction and get between fingers and under nails too.
4. Rinse thoroughly and dry. * Be sure to change towels often.
