Hollywood and Dine

It’s the middle of the week and that means two great things: It’s almost the weekend, and David is cooking again!

He sat down with “Catwoman” herself, Anne Hathaway, and got her exact recipe for Avocado Chimichurri Bruschetta. Check out our video clips to learn some of David’s tips and tricks.

Southwest General: Summer Pregnancy
As many women will tell you, pregnancy can be tough on your body. Add in multiple days of above 90 degree temperatures, and we’re talking torture! Here to keep expecting woman healthy and safe was Dr. Shirley Bennett from Southwest General Health Center.
Share Dr. Shirley’s tips:
  • During pregnancy, women should be particularly cautious about sun exposure. Too much sun can cause overheating and dehydration, and also skin is more susceptible to burn due to the hormonal changes.
  • Always wear sunscreen and stay in the shade when possible.
  • Also, insect bites can open the door to exposure to Lyme disease or West Nile virus.
  • Use insect repellent with DEET.
  • Drink about eight glasses of fluid a day, more if the temperatures are high or if you are sweating a lot.
  • Red flags for dehydration are dizziness, fatigue, headache, nausea, contractions and more.
  • Edema or swelling in the ankles and feet is common in this very hot weather. Restricting fluid intake does not help. Increasing fluid intake and lying on your left side with your feet up, above your heart, will help. If you develop sudden edema or swelling, see your doctor for a blood pressure check as this can be a sign of preeclampsia (also known as Toxemia).
