Recipe of the month

Apricot Glazed Cornish Hens with

Wild Rice Stuffing

4 cornish Hens - defrosted, cleaned and giblets removed.

Apricot Preserves

2 cups cooked Wild Rice

1/2 Onion, diced

2 Garlic Cloves, chopped

1 cup of sliced Mushrooms

1 tbsp Olive Oil

1 stalk Celery, chopped

Salt & Pepper to taste

1. Put oil in a saute pan. Add onion - cook 3 minutes stirring occasionally. Add small amounts of water if necessary      to avoid dryness in the pan.

2. Add celery and cook 2 minutes. Add Mushrooms and Garlic and cook 2 minutes.


3. Add this mixture to cooked Wild Rice. Add Salt and Pepper to taste.


4. Stuff loosely into cornish hens and place hens in a baking dish.


5. Spread Apricot Preserves liberally onto the hens. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.


6. Cover pan loosely with aluminum foil and bake in a pre-heated 350 degree oven for 1 hour or until a meat      thermometer reads 180.


7. Take hens out of the oven. Let hens sit at room temp for 10 minutes to allow the juices to sink back into the      meat.


ENJOY with steamed broccolini and roasted butternut squash as shown above.

Exercise of the month

Cobra Pose



  • Strengthens the shoulder stabilizers.

  • Opens the chest and heart chakra.

  •   Stretches the pectorals, anterior deltoids, hips and abdominals.

How to do this exercise:

(Always be sure to check with your Dr before performing this or any other new exercise especially if you have heart problems, high or low blood pressure, back or neck problems or are pregnant)

  1. Begin lying on your stomach with your legs long and lengthened. Place hands under your shoulders, engage your abdominals and as you inhale press your hands into the floor and lift your chest off the floor as you lengthen your spine all the way through the top of your head.

  2. Keep your chest open, abdominals lifted and elbows bent in at your side.

  3.    Exhale, bend your knees and rest in child pose.
