FOOD INSPECTION REPORTS – The Courier-Times: News

The Environmental Public Health Office of the Henry County Health Department conducted five routine, four temporary and one pre-operational inspection during the second week of September. County inspectors identified four critical violations and 10 non-critical violations during that time period.

Unless there is an immediate risk to public health and safety, Indiana regulations give business owners 10 days to review food inspection reports before releasing them to the public.

Tasty Ways to Get More Fiber | Health

FRIDAY, Sept. 29, 2017 (HealthDay News) — You probably know that it’s a good idea to eat more fiber. But do you know why?

Fiber is found in plant-based foods. It adds volume to your diet, but passes through the intestines quickly because the body can’t digest it. That’s why fiber can make you feel full faster and prevent constipation. It may also help lower your cholesterol level and reduce your risk for heart disease, obesity and diabetes.

According to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, women should get 25 grams of fiber every day and men, 38 grams. Yet only 5 percent of Americans meet this guideline.

With a little effort, you can reach this healthful goal by eating a variety of fiber-rich foods rather than depending on supplements. That’s a good idea because you also get the foods’ other nutrients — vitamins, minerals and more.

Vegetables are a major source of fiber, some more than others. These include leafy, raw greens, and cruciferous ones like broccoli and Brussels sprouts. Depending on the veggie, you can enjoy it raw or cooked. Legumes like lentils, dried peas and all manner of beans are other good sources of fiber; many even pack in some protein, making them a great substitution for meat.

Nuts and seeds also add fiber to your diet. Just watch quantities since they’re very calorie dense.

Put fresh and dried fruit on your list, too. Apples and pears with the skin are good choices. Also try raisins and prunes.

Hot cereal like oatmeal and cold cereal like bran flakes provide good amounts of fiber. And, of course, don’t forget whole wheat bread and pastas, bran muffins, brown rice and even popcorn.

However, ramping up your fiber intake too quickly can cause gas and bloating.

So if you’re looking to fill up on fiber, experts say start slow and gradually increase the amount you eat every day.

For more high-fiber foods along with their calories and portion sizes, check out this list from the U.S. Dietary Guidelines.

The Gut/Skin Connection – mindbodygreen

The first step to healthy, radiant skin is balancing digestive health. If you think about a garden, the soil is like our gut. It needs the right nutrient levels and bacterial balance to support the plants and for them to be strong, their leaves robust, and their flowers to blossom. For our skin to be strong and lustrous and radiant, we also need the right bacterial and nutrient balance in our gut.

Our gut is home to a large portion of our immune system. It’s where we make nutrients (that make collagen), antioxidants (that protect our skin), metabolize hormones, neutralize pathogens, and make neurotransmitters and detoxifying enzymes, so it’s little wonder that the state of the gut has a profound effect on our skin.

The cell danger response (CDR) is the evolutionarily conserved metabolic response that protects cells and hosts from harm. The skin, hair, and nails are the last places to get nutrients that go to more important organs first. If we’re not getting enough nutrients or digesting our food properly due to poor gut health, our skin will start to starve. This affects skin elasticity and collagen production and will manifest in dull, lackluster skin with poor tone. Studies show that those with good digestion have a healthier fatty-acids profile in their skin, making their skin plumper, more hydrated, and more moisturized.

Here are a few ways you can go about achieving a healthy gut and a radiant, glowing complexion.

1. Consume high levels of antioxidants.

A diet rich in antioxidants is nature’s internal skin care regime, helping to fight rogue free radicals and repair cell damage. Antioxidants are abundant in vibrantly colored vegetables; fish; mushrooms; legumes; seeds; leeks, onions, and garlic; green tea; and black tea. My new book is filled with gut-loving recipes that are nutritious, delicious, packed with antioxidants, and will feed your cells and your gut microbes.

2. Stay hydrated.

Drink 2 liters of clean, filtered water daily. It goes without saying that drinking lots of clean water is key to keeping the skin hydrated and cleansed. Studies tell us that the skin contains approximately 30 percent water, which contributes to plumpness, elasticity, and resiliency. Water intake not only improves skin hydration but can also improve skin thickness and density.

3. Eat fermented foods.

Fermented foods improve digestion and the absorption of minerals and nutrients. Fermented foods are rich in bioavailable nutrients to feed the skin from within (fermentation predigests the food, so the nutrients are more available for the skin and body to use) and are great for improving digestion as they contain both prebiotics and probiotics.

4. Chew, chew, chew.

The more you chew, the more saliva you mix with your foods, which is a good thing because saliva contains digestive enzymes that lubricate the food and break down fats, all of which is beneficial to your digestive system.

5. Consider enzymes.

Good health is not only about what you eat but what you digest, and enzymes in food help our body digest beauty nutrients. The enzymes themselves, such as proteolytic enzymes found in papaya, are also anti-inflammatory, immune-boosting, detoxifying, and healing in the body. All raw foods contain enzymes, but certain foods like lacto-fermented foods, sprouted seeds, figs, mango, pineapple, avocados, and bananas are extra powerful.

Plus, the plant-based superfood you should be eating daily for glowing skin.

Thursday briefing: Council sacks group that ran Grenfell | World news

Top story: ‘Do more and do it faster’ for tower survivors

Hello – it’s Warren Murray bringing you this morning’s news, digested.

The Grenfell Tower property management group has had its contract revoked by the borough council that owns the estate because it “no longer has the trust of residents”.

The Kensington and Chelsea Tenant Management Organisation (TMO) is accused of failing to listen to residents’ complaints leading up to the London fire, and a poor response in its wake. The deputy leader of the Conservative-run council, Kim Taylor-Smith, told a council meeting last night that there was a lack of confidence in the TMO’s fire safety record and a unanimous vote of no confidence from 25 residents’ associations.

The senior coroner in the case, meanwhile, says that 67 victims have been positively identified – among them at least 18 children. All children on the list of missing were accounted for, said Dr Fiona Wilcox, and she hoped this had at least brought “some relief” to the families anxiously awaiting news.


Hugh Hefner – There is breaking news this morning that the founder of Playboy has died aged 91. The pioneering publisher of titillating magazines – who boasted of sleeping with thousands of women – died at his Playboy Mansion of natural causes, said his son, Cooper Hefner. Hugh Hefner started expressing his views on sexual liberation in his high school and college writings, then worked for a while at Esquire magazine. In 1953 he went it alone and sold his first issue of Playboy, featuring nude pictures of Marilyn Monroe. His financial backers included his mother, Grace – who put in $1,000 because, according to Hefner, she “believed not in the venture, but in her son”. The magazine over the years featured not only naked women but the writings of Jack Kerouac, Ian Fleming and Margaret Atwood, and interviews with the likes of Fidel Castro, Frank Sinatra, Marlon Brando and John Lennon. Read Stuart Jeffries’ obituary of Hugh Hefner for his full life and times.


‘Oh, Jeremy Corbyn’ – The contrast could not be more stark after Jeremy Corbyn declared the death of neoliberalism, just as Theresa May was preparing an address defending the free market. “We are now the politicial mainstream,” said the Labour leader in his Brighton conference speech where he promised to introduce rent controls in cities, penalise developers for locking up land, increase state intervention in housing and utilities, and tax big businesses more.


Jeremy Corbyn’s conference speech in four minutes – video highlights

The Conservative PM, meanwhile, is today due to make a spirited defence of capitalism in a speech to mark 20 years since Labour, under Tony Blair and Gordon Brown, made the Bank of England independent. May, who began her professional life at the bank in 1977, is expected to say: “A free market economy, operating under the right rules and regulations, is the greatest agent of collective human progress ever created.”


Black holes and old carbon – Astrophysicists have again detected gravitational waves from the collision of two black holes, lending further backing to Albert Einstein’s theory that space itself can be stretched and squeezed. The waves travelled 1.8 billion light years before being picked up by two sets of detectors: one called Ligo, in the US, and the other, Virgo, near Pisa in Italy. Scientists looking closer to home say they might have found evidence for life dating back 4bn years on Earth, in the form of graphite traces in rocks from Canada. There is some scepticism around the claim, though, because our planet was under heavy bombardment from meteorites at the time – and the researchers’ peers say they may be jumping to conclusions about the carbon-12 isotopes they found.


‘We don’t know what happened to him’ – The body of American student Otto Warmbier showed no obvious signs of torture after he died following release from North Korean imprisonment, a coroner has found. Warmbier was sentenced to 15 years’ hard labour after being convicted in 2016 of trying to steal a propaganda poster from a Pyongyang hotel. He was sent back to the US comatose this June. Donald Trump had backed up Warmbier’s parents’ claims that he was tortured while in the regime’s custody. But Ohio coroner Lakshmi Sammarco said only small scars from medical instruments were found on his body – and not the damaged teeth his parents had claimed, or signs of the broken bones that might be expected. All that was known was that he suffered brain damage from lack of oxygen. “We don’t know what happened to him. That’s the bottom line,” said the coroner.


‘Guerrilla war’ on truth – Alternative news sites are out to destroy the credibility of mainstream outlets, the senior BBC journalist Nick Robinson has warned. Sites like the pro-Corbyn Canary, the rightwing Westmonster, pro-independence Wings over Scotland and leftwing Novara are set up to advance an agenda rather than fairly report the news, argues Robinson, who will give the inaugural Steve Hewlett memorial lecture tonight. “Our critics now see their attacks as a key part of their political strategy,” Robinson writes in the Guardian. “In order to succeed they need to convince people not to believe ‘the news’.”


‘Our exhausting path to democracy’ – Hong Kong activist Joshua Wong, doing six months’ jail for organising the “umbrella” protests of 2014, writes with stirring defiance today on his determination not to let a new era of Chinese authoritarian rule snuff out the pro-democracy movement. “One simply cannot turn a blind eye and kid oneself that Hong Kong is still the same as it has always been,” he says. “[But] I continue to believe that Hong Kong, as the freest part on Chinese soil with the strongest faith in democracy, can still make a difference.”

Can you really live on an uncooked diet – and is it good for you anyway?

Felicity Cloake, who writes our long-running perfect recipes series, busts some of the myths around going “fully raw” – including that nutrients are destroyed by cooking (actually, it frees them up for absorption by our bodies) and that what was good for our prehistoric ancestors should be good for us (except we’ve got mouths, teeth and stomachs too small for their diet). Cooking also kills germs and makes things like potatoes digestible. “The benefits of a raw diet have been somewhat overcooked,” Cloake concludes.

Sport

The participation of Ben Stokes in the Ashes series this winter remains in the balance following the fight in Bristol over which the England all-rounder was arrested on suspicion of actual bodily harm.

Antonio Conte has expressed dismay at the decision to stage Chelsea’s game against Manchester City on Saturday, claiming he will only be able to select his team “one or two hours before we play” as he gauges his squad’s recovery from the eye-catching if draining win at Atlético Madrid. Romelu Lukaku scored another two goals as Manchester United thrashed CSKA Moscow 4-1 in Russia and Celtic enjoyed a perfect night in Belgium where they beat Anderlecht 3-0.

Tiger Woods has admitted he may never play competitive golf again owing to his well-publicised back problems. The US Ski and Snowboard Association will put forth a formal proposal next week for Lindsey Vonn to participate in a men’s World Cup downhill race next year. And OJ Simpson could be released on parole as soon as Monday in Las Vegas under a plan being finalised by Nevada officials.

Business

The dollar received another boost after Donald Trump announced plans for the biggest shakeup of the US tax system for three decades. Investors took Trump’s plans as another good sign for the US economy, strengthening the chances of a rate rise in December. Asian markets have been mixed with Japan and Australia up, but Hong Kong and Shanghai down. The FTSE100 is set to open up fractionally higher. The pound lost ground to the dollar at $1.337 but rose to €1.14.

The papers

A finger-pointing Jeremy Corbyn is all over the front pages today. But some titles are giving the middle finger to Ryanair instead – accusing it of “cancelling Christmas” (the Mail and the Metro) and “ruining hols for 400,000 more passengers” (the Mirror). The Times says Michael O’Leary’s airline is facing a legal storm that could include millions of pounds in fines.

The FT headline on that Corbyn conference speech seems just a little more animated than usual – his plans on tax and rent have “put business and landlords on alert”. “The Tories are hanging on by their fingertips,” Corbyn says on the Guardian front. The Telegraph and the i lead with Theresa May threatening trade retaliation against punitive US tariffs slapped on Bombardier planes built in Belfast. The Express goes it alone with “Millions face pension shock” about final salary schemes that it says have only a 50% chance of paying out in full.

Smart food choices, smart portions

Healthy eating can often seem complicated. It’s easy to get overwhelmed by the sheer volume of foods available in grocery stores, or to wonder exactly what a portion size looks like. Don’t let yourself get overwhelmed; these simple suggestions can help ensure you’re eating a nutritious, good-for-you meal every time you fill up your plate.

Divide your plate.

Fill half your plate with vegetables and fruits; divide the other half between a healthy grain and lean protein. This simple visual works no matter what size plate you’re eating off of (though a smaller plate can help you keep your overall portions in check).

Go for whole grains.

Good whole-grain options include brown rice, quinoa and whole-grain bread. One portion (about 80 calories) equals 1/2 cup or a 1-oz. slice of bread. Starchy vegetables, such as potatoes and corn, count toward the grain part of your plate.

Choose lean protein.

Opt for sources such as chicken, fish, lean beef or pork, and tofu. A healthy portion is a 3-oz. serving of meat/poultry or a 4-oz. serving of fish (about 150 calories). For beans, 3/4 cup = 3 oz.

Fit fruit in.

Aim for the equivalent of 2 cups daily. Consider a “cup” equivalent as 1 cup fresh, 1 cup juice or 1/2 cup dried. You get the biggest nutritional bang for your caloric buck by choosing whole fresh fruits (about 60 calories per cup).

Eat more veggies.

Adding a green salad to your meal will help you fit in the 2 1/2 cups of vegetables recommended daily for most adults. (A “cup equivalent” of salad greens or raw greens is 2 cups; for other vegetables, such as broccoli florets, carrots or green beans, it’s 1 cup — cooked or raw.)

Have a little healthy fat.

Drizzle, don’t dump, dressing — just a tablespoon or two. Good to know: 1 teaspoon of oil (e.g., olive, canola) and 1 tablespoon of light salad dressing both contain about 45 calories.

Sip smart.

Drinking 6 to 8 glasses of water — tap, mineral or sparkling — daily will help you meet your fluid needs without adding extra calories. Trade out water for 1 or 2 glasses of nonfat milk for added protein and calcium; just be sure to account for calories (90 calories per cup).

Know your portion sizes.

Memorize this handy guide to help you estimate portions:

1 teaspoon = tip of your thumb (to the middle joint)

1 tablespoon = your whole thumb

1 cup = your fist

3 ounces meat = palm of your hand

Former Chef Dishes On Gwyneth Paltrow’s Paltry Diet, Cementing Paltrow’s ‘Alternative’ Views

Gwyneth Paltrow is one celebrity that the public seems to love to hate. The 44-year-old mother-of-two has been at the center of more controversy based on her strict “new age” views on diet and health than many celebrities that invite real scandal. Kate McAloon, a chef to the stars, worked for Paltrow and her then- husband, Chris Martin, during the filming of the first Iron Man movie. McAloon made no effort to downplay the incredibly restrictive diet parameters set by Paltrow for her entire household.

“I had a brief from their assistants…they eat nothing. They are very strict. They avoided any sugars, anything sweet, no dairy, just more vegetables,” McAloon said in an interview with new.com.au.

“When I got there, I was trying to stick to the brief, and I realized as I started adding more ingredients in, they said, ‘Your food is getting better.’ That’s what happens when you eat more than grass.”

The chef has worked for several celebrity couples, including Miranda Kerr, Courtney Cox, and David Arquette. She has the rare opportunity to observe the Hollywood elite in their natural habitat, and generally had positive things to say — until it came to Paltrow.

Paltrow has made no secret of her celebration of the “raw food” diet, and strict focus on holistic healing methods. The actress is the founder of Goop, a ‘lifestyle brand’ and newsletter founded in 2008. Goop gave Paltrow a platform to express some of her new age ideas on health and wellness. Unfortunately, it also gave the public a platform to point out just how inaccurate, and sometimes dangerous, her ideas could be.

In her July interview with the New York Times, licensed obstetrician and gynecologist Dr. Jen Gunter denounced much of the information in Paltrow’s publication. After reading through Goop’s recommendation for protecting against parasites with a goat milk cleanse, Gunter had this to say,

“I’d just write it off as crazy except some people are going to follow this advice and waste a lot of money.”

The doctor went on to debunk the newest health tips involving everything from steaming one’s lady parts to the insertion of a jade egg into the vagina to improve physical intimacy.

“I read the post on Goop, and all I can tell you is it is the biggest load of garbage since vaginal steaming.”

This isn’t the first time that Paltrow has been met with scrutiny over the information being touted in Goop. In 2013, the publication was accused of sexualizing pre-teen girls when it advertised children’s string bikinis. In spite of the mixed reception, the actress-turned-entrepreneur announced her plans to expand Goop as a brand and possible television program last week.

Paltrow has tried to defend herself against criticism, telling CNN Money that she is “close to the common woman.” The interview with McAloon is only the most recent proof that people are still avidly interested in the way that the “other half” lives.

Fairground kitchen beset by violations before eclipse; 14 health violations include rodent droppings on food packaging

More than 100 firefighters and other emergency response personnel stationed at the Deschutes County Fair & Expo Center for the total solar eclipse were eating food from a contaminated kitchen during part of their time there.

During a health inspection conducted by Deschutes County Health Services on Aug. 16, the Fair & Expo Center received a score of 78, considered a priority violation requiring a re-inspection. The 14 individual violations included instances of cooked food placed near raw meat, out-of-date supplies and rodent droppings on food packaging.

“Some places have good days; some places have bad days,” said Eric Mone, communicable disease and environmental health supervisor for Deschutes County.

From Aug. 16 through Aug. 23, the Fair & Expo Center played host to a multi-agency coordination center for groups in Crook, Deschutes and Jefferson counties, that were there to monitor the influx of visitors to Central Oregon and respond to emergencies, such as fires or car crashes. Nathan Garibay, emergency services manager for the Deschutes County Sheriff’s Office, said representatives from police and fire departments across the region were present at the facility, as were officers from Deschutes County Search and Rescue, Oregon Health Authority, Oregon Office of Emergency Management and more.

Mone, who was among those stationed at the Fair & Expo Center, took the opportunity to conduct a routine inspection on the facility’s main kitchen, which provided breakfast, lunch and dinner for the approximately 175 people stationed at the facility that week.

The inspection found that rodents had chewed holes in peanut packages and a bag of pinto beans. Rodent droppings were found on the floor and on packages of food, according to the inspection write-up. Additionally, raw pork was stored above cooked food, which can cause cross-contamination, and some of the equipment was stored without being cleaned, according to the write-up.

Dan Despotopulos, director of the fairgrounds, said there’s no excuse for performance by fairgrounds staff, but pointed to several mitigating factors. The Deschutes County Fair concluded on Aug. 6, leaving the fairgrounds with a little more than a week to clean up, bring in additional food and prepare for an influx of visitors arriving for the eclipse.

“The whole kitchen was all cluttered up,” Despotopulos said. “It was probably the worst time for an inspector to come in.”

He said the kitchen provides for 15 food stands when the fair is in full swing, each of which has to be cleaned. Despite that, Despotopulos said the facility has had various issues with rodents in the past. The fairgrounds is near Redmond’s southeastern edge, adjacent to land owned by the Bureau of Land Management, and the property occasionally has to deal with woodchucks and other rodents. Mone added that the presence of animals at the county fair can attract small rodents to the facility.

“I think that area’s definitely susceptible to that kind of vermin,” Mone said.

After the inspection, Mone alerted Despotopulos to the problem, and the director of the fairgrounds began cleaning facilities immediately, and brought a pest control company to the facility the next day.

“The fair did a really good job of being responsive,” Mone said.

Despotopulos said no one got sick from the food served at the facility, and Garibay added that the food didn’t affect the staffers working there.

“Our experience with the fairgrounds was absolutely satisfactory,” Garibay said.

The Fair & Expo Center was re-inspected on Thursday. Brody Hodges, the environmental health specialist who conducted the second inspection, found several small issues, but said there were no rodents in the kitchen, and several untriggered mouse traps on the floor.

“Most of everything was corrected,” Hodges said.

Hodges added that there was no food being prepared during the second inspection, which made it easier to keep the facility clean. Despotopulos said the pest control company is working with the fairgrounds on a contract basis, and is focused on keeping rodents out of the kitchen.

“Sometimes, you get a slap on the wrist, and it wakes you up,” Despotopulos said.
