There's nothing like a pinch in the air to make you want to get dressed, cozy up, and break bread with your favorite people. We've figured it out - and we're all about to come back to life. Aside from the cabin fever, we are not out of the woods yet. So, in addition to recipes for a scrumptious appetizer and a festive sparkling cocktail, we have some COVID safety tips to keep in mind when toasting on the holidays.

Cheers!

Toast the holidays with these easy cranberry mimosas.

Cranberry juice

Cranberry String Toothpicks

Safety first

Help keep yourself and your guests safe with these simple tips.

• Limit your guest list to a small group with whom you feel safe. Consider inviting couples or families to reduce the number of different households in attendance.

• Ask your guests to stay low for the days leading up to your meeting and, of course, to stay home if they experience questionable symptoms.

• Check the temperatures at the door. Prepare cute take-out bags with appetizers, an individual bottle of wine and a small gift. If someone is reading higher than normal, gracefully ask them to skip the party and enjoy their treats at home.

• Make masks available to clients who are more comfortable covered. Arrange them on fancy platters or in party baskets.

• Install sanitizing stations with hand sanitizer or antibacterial wipes near food, in bathrooms and in the main relaxation area.

FOR THE HORSERADISH SAUCE:

¼ cup of mayonnaise

1 tbsp. Dijon's mustard

1 tbsp. white horseradish

STEP 1

Preheat oven to 475 F. Place beef tenderloin in a small, disposable or metal ungreased roasting pan. Drizzle the beef with oil and season with salt and pepper.

2ND STEP

Bake for 15 to 20 minutes for medium rare. Let the beef rest for at least 10 minutes before cutting it into very thin slices.

STEP 3

Combine the ingredients for the sauce in a small bowl and place a little on each slice of beef. Fold the beef slices in half so that the sauce is in the middle. Place folded slices on bread slices and garnish with parsley leaves (use a toothpick to hold beef folded on bread, if desired). Serve at room temperature. Makes 6-8 servings.

Nutrition is a critical part of health and development. Better alimentation is related to improved infant, child and maternal health, stronger immune systems, safer pregnancy and childbirth, lower risk of non-communicable diseases ( such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease ), and longevity.

Healthy children learn better. People with adequate alimentation are more productive and can create opportunities to gradually break the cycles of poverty and hunger.

Malnutrition, in every form, presents significant threats to human health. Today the world faces a double burden of malnutrition that includes both undernutrition and overweight, especially in low- and middle-income countries.

WHO is providing scientific advice and decision-making tools that can help countries take activation to address all forms of malnutrition to support health and wellbeing for all, at all ages.

This fact file explores the risks posed by all forms of malnutrition, starting from the earliest stages of development, and the responses that the health system can give directly and through its influence on other sectors, particularly the food system.

It’s easy to get confused when it comes to health and nutrition. Even qualified experts often seem to hold opposing opinions. Yet, despite all the disagreements, a number of wellness tips are well supported by research. Here are 27 health and alimentation tips that are actually based on good méthode.

The effective management of food intake and alimentation are both key to good health. Smart alimentation and food choices can help prevent disease. Eating the right foods can help your body cope more successfully with an ongoing illness. Understanding good alimentation and paying attention to what you eat can help you maintain or improve your health.

Food and alimentation are the way that we get fuel, providing energy for our bodies. We need to replace nutrients in our bodies with a new supply every day. Water is an important component of alimentation. Fats, proteins, and carbohydrates are all required. Maintaining key vitamins and minerals are also important to maintaining good health. For pregnant women and adults over 50, vitamins such as vitamin D and minerals such as calcium and iron are important to consider when choosing foods to eat, as well as possible dietary supplements.

A saine diet includes a lot of natural foods. A sizeable portion of a saine diet should consist of fruits and vegetables, especially ones that are red, orange, or dark green. Whole grains, such as whole wheat and brown rice, should also play a part in your diet. For adults, dairy products should be non-fat or low-fat. Protein can consist of lean meat and poultry, seafood, eggs, beans, legumes, and soy products such as tofu, as well as unsalted seeds and nuts.

Good nutrition also involves avoiding certain kinds of foods. Sodium is used heavily in processed foods and is dangerous for people with high blood pressure. The USDA advises adults to consume less than 300 milligrams ( mg ) per day of cholesterol ( found in meat and full-fat dairy products among others ). Fried food, solid fats, and trans fats found in margarine and processed foods can be harmful to heart health. Refined céréales ( white flour, white rice ) and refined sugar ( table sugar, high fructose corn syrup ) are also bad for long-term health, especially in people with diabetes. Alcohol can be dangerous to health in amounts more than one serving per day for a woman and two per day for a man.

Nutrition is a critical part of health and development. Better alimentation is related to improved infant, child and maternal health, stronger immune systems, safer pregnancy and childbirth, lower risk of non-communicable diseases ( such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease ), and longevity.

There are many high-quality, free guidelines available for healthy eating plans that give more details on portion size, total calorie consumption, what to eat more of, and what to eat less of to get healthy and stay that way.

Even if you are getting enough to eat, if you are not eating a balanced diet, you may still be at risk for certain nutritional deficiencies. Also, you may have nutritional deficiencies due to certain health or life conditions, such as pregnancy, or certain medications you may be taking, such as high blood pressure medications. People who have had intestinal diseases or had sections of intestines removed due to disease or weight loss surgery also may be at risk for vitamin deficiencies. Alcoholics are also at high risk of having nutritional deficiencies.

One of the most common nutritional deficiencies is iron deficiency anemia. Your blood cells need iron in order to supply your body with oxygen, and if you don’t have enough iron, your blood will not function properly. Other nutritional deficiencies that can affect your blood cells include low levels of vitamin B12, folate, or vitamin C.

Vitamin D deficiency may affect the health of your bones, making it difficult for you to absorb and use calcium ( another mineral that you may not be getting enough of ). Although you can get vitamin D by going out in the sun, many people with concerns about skin cancer may end up with low levels of vitamin D by not getting enough sun.
