Many foods can satisfy hunger and give you energy to keep going, yet some may provide better nutri- tion than others. Just as you have choices in the types of gas you put in your car, you have choices in the types of fuel you put in your body. And the same as with your car, long term use of inferior fuel in your body can cause health problems down the road. This is a list of foods that can be a healthy as well as economi- cal choice: 1) Eggs - Eggs are a great, low carb source of protein and contain an array of other nutri- ents. Eggs are one of the most in- expensive and versatile of foods. Have them scrambled, in a veggie omelet, or hard-boiled (about 3- 4 egg yolks per week is still fine for your heart.) 2) Canned or dried beans - Beans top the list of inexpen- sive healthy foods. One-half cup Of beans provides around 15 grams of carbs, varying amounts of protein, and lots of fiber. Add beans to salads, soups, tacos, dips or chili. Beans can even be a healthy part of the diabetes meal plan. 3) Canned tuna - Canned tuna is another inexpensive lean protein source, packed full Of omega-3 fatty acids for a positive effect on heart health. Buy tuna packed in water and add it to a green salad for lunch or mix with a little plain yogurt, mayonnaise, celery, and onions for a quick and healthy tuna salad. 4) Frozen veggies - Frozen veggies such as green beans, broc- coli, cauliflower, brussel sprouts and spinach are low in carbohy- drates and practically considered "free food" for those with diabe- tes. They provide a variety of vi- 'tamins, minerals, and fiber and are lower in sodium than canned veg- etables." 5) Peanut butter - Peanut butter is high in calories and fat (the good kind), but don't let that stop you. Peanut butter is inex- pensive, low in carbs, and car!. re- ally fill you up. Watch the por- tion size and go for the natural kind, without added sugars and other oils. 6) Plain yogurt - Plain yo- gurt in a large tub is less expen- sive than the individual contain= ers. Don't just think of yogurt for breakfast - it can make a great snack with some toasted almonds and sugar-free jelly mixed in, it can be added to tuna, chicken, or pasta'salads, or blended with fruit for a delicious dessert. 7) Oatmeal - Most every'- one knows that oatmeal is a healthy breakfast choice, but oatmeal can be used in a variety of ways. It can be added to dishes such as meatloaf or burgers or in most other recipes that call for bread crumbs. Oatmeal is not low in carb, but its higher fiber than breadcrumbs and quite inexpen- sive as well. 8) Sweet Potatoes - They do contain carbohydrates, but they are packed full of good nu- trition; providing vitamin A, po- tassium, and fiber. Just make sure to watch your portion size. You can throw the sweet potato in the microwave and have a great side beher00Id @00-.nex .net REAL WEST CINEMA 11585 HWY. 181)EAST ' 538-5659 ' 'March 4- 10; 2011 Coming Soon: Red Riding Hood & Unknown Eat h d 7: c eap an dish in a few minutes (I like it with just some fresh ground black pep- per and lime juice.) 9) Seasonal Vegetables - Vegetables that are in season are offer/at their lowest price at that time, at their tastiest, and packed full of nutrients. Fall and winter vegetables include: beets, cab- bage, carrots, onions and winter squash. Summertime explodes with zucchini, tomatoes, and leafy greens. Naturally, we cannot for- get our red/green chilies in the fall! 10) Seasonal Fruits - The still eat well same story goes for seasonal fruit as seasonal vegetables. Lots of choices in the summer from ber- ries to melons. But don't forget fall and winter crops of apples, pears, grapefruit and lemons. Bon appetite, buen provecho, and I hope to see you in the shopping aisles and farm- ers' markets. ### Melvyn Gelb is a Diabetes Pub- lic Health Nurse for the Grant County Public Health Office. Melvyn can be reached at Or at 538-,5318, Ext. 127 DOH reports 12 influenza- related deathsso far this year Submitted by NM DOHISanta Fe Secretary Designate of Health Catherine Torres, MD, said today that there have been 12 in- fluenza-related deaths so far this flu season and is encouraging all New Mexicans to get Vaccinated against the disease. The deaths occurred in Bernalillo, Chaves, Dona Ana, Eddy, Luna, Taos and Valencia Counties. Eleven of the deaths occurred among adults aged 22 to 54 years and one death was a child. "We want to express our sympathies to the families who are dealing with the loss of loved ones due to the flu," Dr. Torres said. "Getting vaccinated against the flu every year is the" best pro- tection we have to prevent the disease, which can lead to seri- ous illness and even death. I en- courage everyone, especially those who are at higher risk from developing serious complica- tions to get a flu shot as soon as possible." It is important that people in the following groups get vacci- nated, either because they are at high risk of having serious flu- related complications or because they live with or care for people at high risk for developing flu- related complications: . Pregnant women (any tri- mester) • Children younger than 5, but espec.ially children younger than 2 years old • People age65 and older • People of any age with cer- tain chronic medical conditions like asthma, diabetes, and lung or heart disease • People who live in nursing homes and other long-term care facilities • Peoplewho live with or care for those at high risk for compli- cations from flu, including health care workers and caregivers of babies younger than 6 months • American Indians and Alas- kan Natives • People who are morbidly obese A November 2010 survey conducted in 20 sites around the country, including four New Mexico counties (Bernalillo, Sandoval, Santa Fe and Valencia) found that only 38 percent of adults and 36 percent of children 6 months through 17 years of age had received an influenza vacci- nation., Anyone can get influenza, but rates of infection are highest among young children and death rates are highest among the eld- erly. Infants, the elderly, pregnant women, and people with certain health conditions - such as heart, lung or kidney disease or a weak- ened immune system - can de- velop severe illness. Each year thousands of people die from sea- sonal influenza and even more require hospitalization. "In additioi to getting a flu shot, people should wash their hands frequently and cover their mouth and nose when they sneeze and cough to help pre- vent the spread of the disease to others," Dr. Torres said. New Mexicans should con- tact their health care providers to receive flu vaccine. The Department's public health of L rices provide vaccine to people who are at high risk for serious illness or death and people who have no health insurance. Pub- lic health offices are listed in the phonebook's blue pages under state government. Contact in- formation for public health of- fices is listed at People can find informa- tion about the u and flu clin- ics by calling toll-free at 866- 681-5872 or looking up the Department of Health's website, flu.shtml. Many of .the people at high risk for flu complications should also get a pneumonia shot if they have never had one. People who need to have the pneumococcal vaccine are: age 65 and older, and adults 19 and older who smoke, or have chronic health conditions, such as asthma, dia- betes, cardiovascular or lung dis- ease, cirrhosis, chronic renal fail- ure or are immunocompromised due to lymphoma, organ trans- plant, multiple myeloma or Hodgkin disease.
