Healthy Inspirations Recipe of the Week – Slow-cooked Pork Roast

May 4, 2017

Pork-Loin-copy1[87]
Slow-cooked Pork Roast
Serves 4

Ingredients

1.5kg boneless pork loin roast
2 Tbsp coconut oil
5 cloves garlic, minced
1 onion, thinly sliced
1 Tbsp chili powder
2 tsp ground coriander
2 tsp ground cumin
¼ cup apple cider vinegar
1 ½ cups water or gluten-free vegetable stock
1 (400g) can whole tomatoes, with juices
2 bay leaves
1 Sea salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Method

  1. Sprinkle all sides of the pork roast with a generous amount of salt and pepper.
  2. In a large skillet over a medium-high heat, add the coconut oil and then sear the meat on all sides until it begins to turn slightly golden brown. Once finished, place in the slow-cooker.
  3. In the same skillet used for the pork, combine the garlic, onion, chili powder, coriander, and cumin. Mix well, scraping up the left-over meat bits in the pan.
  4. Add the vinegar to the skillet and allow it to come to a boil. Continue cook until the liquid is nearly evaporated.
  5. Finally add the water or stock to the skillet, using it to whisk up all the drippings and spices in the pan. Pour the whole thing into the slow-cooker with the pork roast.
  6. Crush the tomatoes over the roast, followed by the tomato juices. Add the bay leaves, give it a good stir and adjust the seasoning by adding more salt and pepper, if needed.
  7. Set your slow-cooker to low and cook for about 8 hours. Once the meat pulls apart easily and it is not too pink in the centre it is ready to serve.
  8. Discard the bay leaves, carve the roast in thick slices and serve with the cooking liquid as a sauce.

Happy 10th Birthday to Mid North Coast Physio!
From very humble beginnings, Mid North Coast Physiotherapy has grown to be one of the leading healthcare providers in the region.  We caught up with director Aaron Hardaker to hear about how they’ve made it 10 years and what’s in store to celebrate.

How did Mid North Coast Physio start out?
We started in a small rented room in Woolgoolga but quickly grew with the support of new clients and referrals from local doctors, leading to a new location and expanded days and hours.  From there, we expanded to Urunga to meet a similar need, before adding two more clinics in recent years in collaboration with Coffs Coast Health Club at Toormina and Moonee Beach.  We changed names from Northern Beaches Physio and Urunga Physio a couple of years ago to be more reflective of the reach of the businesses across the region, Mid North Coast Physio seemed to be much more appropriate.

Why do you see the 10th birthday as an important milestone?
More than anything, I think it shows we’re doing good things with helping clients achieve their goals.  If we weren’t, we certainly wouldn’t have lasted this long, let alone grown significantly over this period.  I’m really proud of the fact we’ve been able to help over 6000 people so far achieve better health, improved quality of life, less pain and more happiness – that’s why we turn up every day!

How can we join in the birthday celebrations?
We’ve decided to do things a little different to celebrate this birthday.  Instead of receiving gifts or having a big party, we’re going to giving some gifts.  Because we love what we do, we want you to come in and experience it firsthand. The first 20 people who call and wish us a happy birthday can choose to have either a 60min massage for the price of 30 mins, a FREE computerised Gaitscan foot assessment OR $20 off an Initial Physio consultation.

All you need to do is decide which special gift is best for you, give us a call on 1300 273747 and wish us a happy birthday to secure your appointment.  We may even come up with something extra special for anyone who is willing to sing Happy Birthday!

At 8am on Sunday 21st May
, dedicated Spartans will gather at Jetty Beach, Coffs Harbour on the sand under the Jetty to raise funds for the White Ribbon Foundation and The Unite Project. These charities support victims of domestic violence and youth homelessness.

An exclusive Spartan 1km Burpees badge is awarded at the finish line to all registered participants #gottaearnit

Why Burpees? They symbolise that no matter how many times a person is knocked down, there is always something within them that finds the strength and courage to stand back up. This is a small way we can let those affected by domestic violence and youth homelessness that they don’t stand alone.

Bring a towel, water and your determination. Register here  by selecting Sunday 21st May & we’ll see you there for a very unique exercising experience…

Body Shape Predicts Heart Disease Risk

March 7, 2017

pearapple
Your wise grandma may have told you never to judge a book by its cover, but when it comes to heart disease, you should rethink that advice. According to research from Intermountain Medical Center Heart Institute and Johns Hopkins University, a person’s body shape may be a better predictor of future heart disease than either body weight or body mass index.

Scientists looked at 200 patients with type 1 or type 2 diabetes—chosen because they had a high proclivity for developing left ventricular dysfunction—and assessed heart disease risk based on whether each patient carried more weight on the hips or in the abdomen. Subjects underwent CT screenings and echocardiography to measure global systolic longitudinal strain, which is an index of left ventricular function.

So, for a lower risk of heart disease, is it better to resemble an apple or a pear?

The researchers found that greater waist circumference was associated with “progressively worse global strain.” They could not find similar findings with other commonly used measures.

“After including either weight or BMI in the regression model, only waist circumference remained an independent predictor of global [strain], while weight and BMI became non-significant,” the authors wrote.

One of the report’s authors, Brent Muhlestein, MD, concluded, “This study confirms that having an apple-shaped body—or a high waist circumference—can lead to heart disease, and that reducing your waist size can reduce your risks.”

This information was presented at the American College of Cardiology 2016 Scientific Session in Chicago. An abstract appeared in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology (2016; 67 [13_S], 1609).

Exploding The Myths About Diets and Nutrition – HELP IS HERE!
For many of us, between what you hear on television and the nutrition “advice” flooding social media, deciding what is healthy can be really confusing.  The best way to filter fact from fiction is to hear it from an expert in the field.  Who better to do that than our very own Katie Drury, an Accredited Practising Dietitian.

Why should we choose you as our Dietitian Katie? 
Firstly, because I enjoy all things food – eating food, talking about food, cooking (especially baking) and experimenting with new foods. It was my love of food, along with my desire to work in the health profession that led me to make the move from my small, country town on the Lower Mid North Coast to Newcastle to study Nutrition and Dietetics. I am also an advocate of all foods in moderation (you can’t have a birthday with no cake!) and am passionate about providing realistic advice that will lead to a healthy lifestyle that is sustainable in the long-term.   Thanks to my background in competitive sport I have developed a strong interest in the area of sports nutrition to improve performance and give athletes the edge.  You can also receive education on how to shop, cooking techniques, meal ideas and delicious recipes. You will be provided with credible sources of nutrition information and bust through any myths around health, lifestyle and diet.

Thanks Katie.  Mid North Coast Physio are offering 5 FREE assessments with Katie to help you reach your health goals and discover a happier, healthier version of you.  Call 1300273747 NOW to secure your FREE assessment before they are gone.  Isn’t it time you started feeling great again?

REVEALED: Top Tips to Avoid The Christmas Bulge!
On average, Australians gain 0.8 – 1.5kg over Christmas time; and it’s not often easy to shift the excess weight once the New Year rolls around. So, what can you do to beat the Christmas bulge? Mid North Coast Physio’s Accredited Dietitian Katie Drury reveals her tips to eat healthy while still enjoying the Christmas festivities.What are some strategies that can be used to make Christmas eating healthier?
1. Don’t skip breakfast: Instead, opt for a filling and healthy breakfast to start the day off on the right food, and avoid over-eating when it gets to lunch and dinner time. For example, eggs on wholegrain toast, a wholegrain cereal, such as Weetbix with low-fat milk or fruit and yoghurt.
2. Stick to healthy plate portions: aim to have half your plate filled with non-starchy vegetables or salad vegetables (i.e. everything but potato, sweet potato and corn).
3. Avoid Boxing Day over-eating by freezing leftovers on Christmas Day in individual portions that can be defrosted when required.
4. Take time to appreciate the foods you are eating; put your fork down between bites and take notice of the flavour and texture of foods when you are eating.
5. Drinking alcohol can add to the merriment of the festive season, but you don’t need to drink in excess to be the life of the party. Aim to have at least two alcohol free days per week, and try not to have more than 2 alcoholic drinks per day.
6. Keep up your exercise over the holidays! Ask for a gym membership for Christmas and get outside on Christmas Day with the family for a game of backyard cricket or touch football between courses.

If you would like to find out more about how a Dietitian can help you, call 1300273747 to request a FREE pre-assessment appointment with Katie.  These appointments are strictly limited so call now to ensure you avoid the extra kilos this Christmas.

You Ask and We Deliver!

We love hearing your feedback, listening to your fabulous ideas and getting your requests.  In answer to many of your requests Santa has come early at Coffs Coast Health Club! 

You will be excited to know that we have just installed a massive air conditioning unit in the group exercise studio at Moonee.  The room is a bit smaller & doesn’t have the natural airflow of Toormina’s main studio, so this has been the number one request from Moonee since last Summer.  The feedback so far has been very positive, so it might be time for you to head on in and see what all the fuss is about.

In the last two weeks we have also purchased new kettlebells, slam balls, aerobic steps, tricep ropes, an olympic swiss bar and resistance bands. We have also ordered a couple of free wheel bikes as an extra warm up or circuit class option for both clubs.

A common request from our 50+ classes has been a circuit timer with variable timings and a large display, so we have just received one each for the Main Studio at Toormina and one is in the Studio at Moonee. Enjoy!

Help Us Help Our Communities Less Fortunate!

Every year we collect for worthwhile charities and this year is no different. The club spirit we have is immense and those in need benefit from all of our combined generosity. We have two ways this year to help…

Share The Dignity:
‘It’s in the bag’ campaign asks that we donate a handbag you no longer use, fill it with items that would make a woman feel special and even pop a thoughtful note into the bag to show her that someone cares and that she matters. Drop your bag to reception at Coffs Coast Health Club Toormina or Moonee, whichever is most convenient. All donations need to be in by 3rd Dec.

REAP:
REAP Coffs Harbour is a passionate and lively group of volunteers who collect food for disadvantaged local residents who are ‘doing it tough.’ Drop your items to reception at Coffs Coast Health Club Toormina or Moonee, whichever is most convenient. All donations need to be in by 17th Dec.

Stop and Smell the Roses by Glen Barnett

October 18, 2016

Ageing Sucks, So Stop And Smell The Roses roses.jpg

 Someone said to me the other day that ageing is unimportant unless you are a cheese. This person was 70 had a lovely weathered face and a life behind them that was filled with achievements, experiences, adventures and many different pathways.  Just like most people their age.  So why do I think ageing sucks – because I don’t want this life to ever end.

Yes, I know I could drop dead tomorrow but as you age there is that awareness that you are heading closer to the exit sign than you were a few years ago.

How fantastic is life. That is not a question it is a statement. There are so many wonderful things to explore, enjoy and experience.  Now that exploration and those experiences may not always be enjoyable but they do allow us to gather the knowledge and insight to so much more than we started out with.

Next time you go out and about take a moment or more to look, feel and listen.  Look at life around you. Close your eyes and feel life around you. Open your ears and hear life around you. Even draw your breath in and smell life around you.  Get saturated in life. Sometimes this experience will be overwhelming to all your senses. Other times you may feel one sense is more enlightened than another.  This is a simple process that we don’t often pursue because we are too busy, to rushed or to blinked in our pursuits.

We all have favourite things to do that bring contentment to us or put a smile on our faces.   Watching children play, listening to favourite music, singing loudly in the shower or car, smelling the flowers at the florist, browsing through your favourite magazine at the newsagent even doing something crazy like when your money comes out of the ATM shout “I Won, I Won”.

Everyday indulge in one of these but don’t see this indulgent time as a treat, because it is your right. Your right to stop and smell the roses and fully enjoy, experience and explore every minute of your fantastic life.

For any other crazy ideas on how to live life to the fullest, call Glen Barnett at Coffs Coast Health Club on 66586222.
