Let's Give 'Em Something to Buzz About: By Deirdre Imus, 8-23-2016 - There’s been a lot of buzz lately about honeybees, those quasi-nuisances that can send even the most stoic among us into a tailspin trying to avoid an encounter. And while a bee sting is undesirable, the pain you’ll feel then is nothing compared to the pain we’ll all feel – and soon – if we don’t do something to protect these sometimes petrifying pollinators. 

 Celebrating 15 Years Protecting Children's Health & the Environment

 The Deirdre Imus Environmental Health Center®  - When you are among the first voices to speak out on an issue, it’s difficult to know if anyone is listening. When I founded The Deirdre Imus Environmental Health Center® at Hackensack University Medical Center fifteen years ago, concern about our children's health being impacted by toxic exposures in the environment was not the hot button, trendy issue it is today.  Read more...

 

Deirdre's Dish Pick

 

Frances' Vegetable "Fried" Rice - Recipe by Deirdre Imus, The Imus Ranch: Cooking for Kids and Cowboys.  I recommend using all organic non GMO ingredients. Brown rice takes its name from the outer bran coating that is left intact rather than removed in milling, as it is in white rice.  Because of this, it is higher in fiber, vitamin B, and important minerals than white rice is.  It also takes a while longer to cook, but the delicious nutty flavor, as well as the additional nutritional value, make it worth the time.  The edamame in this dish also provides a good source of protein.

If you have a fond memory from your childhood about some of the dishes we post please click here to contact us, we would love to hear your story.

If you have a Healthy Recipe that you enjoy and would like to see others indulge in, please share it with us: Deirdre.Imus@hackensackmeridian.org - You may have your recipe posted live on my Recipe Page!

    From the Green Room: Cuddling

    Robert "Cuddle Me" RubinYou’d think that the Secretary of the Treasury would be one of the more boring cabinet positions. Then along comes a revelation about former Treasury Secretary Robert Rubin that blows that notion right out of the water:  according to sources, Bobby Bucks attempted to get his smoove on with former investment banker (and snappy dish) Iris Mack. But the way the nation’s “accountant general” likes to get busy, is not exactly the way the rest of us do. This tee-totaling, bean-counting nerd propositioned Ms. Mack…by asking her if she wanted to go upstairs and “cuddle.”

    Yes, cuddle.

    Two losers cuddlingEvery man has had that soul-crushing, demoralizing experience when his woman makes it known she’d prefer for the non-sexual intimacy to the favorite men’s choice: wild, abandoned, headboard-banging nookie.  When the horned toad rears its ugly head, a guy has a difficult time understanding why his old lady wants him to act like a cross between a giant throw pillow and a sleepy puppy. I’ve always maintained that if you just want to lie next to something warm, I’ll get you a hot water bottle. 

    Playa Rubin, on the other hand, took the high road, not choosing the Bill Clinton/John Edwards method of spending an evening.  And yet, thinking about him curled up in a fetal position around this fiduciary fox skeeves me out more than imagining the two of them actually having sex.

    Potential cuddler Lloyd BentsenSomething about Treasury Secretaries…hugging…is nastier than the idea of them doing the nasty.  Think about it.  You don’t want your head filled with the image of James Baker snuggling with his sweetie, do you?  Or Henry Paulson, naked and nuzzling? Try to conjure Lloyd Bentsen in his jammies “making spoons.”

    Ewwww.

    You could use that one next time you’re actually having sex and want to postpone the inevitable.  Trust me, it works better than thinking about baseball.
