This week the host of Fashion Flash is Staness of Menopause Makeover. In addition to timely medical advice and a great health calculator and record keeper, IMO Staness has some of the best low calorie recipes on the web. This week I was looking for something to bring to a Super Bowl Party on Feb 3 that would not lower the life expectancy of the assembled sports fans. Standard Super Bowl buffets usually feature buffalo wings with blue cheese dressing, nachos with cheese and meat and every kind of chip on the planet. I road tested the turkey chili recipe from Staness and it was perfect. According to Staness, the heat from the chili peppers increase metabolism so that I actually burn calories as I eat it. This chili is also high in iron ( from the turkey) and in vitamin C ( from the tomatoes, peppers and chili). Now I have to decide if I’m even going to even mention that it was low fat, low salt and just all around wonderful for the body.
This week I am also so excited to introduce our newest Fashion Flash blogger– Barbara Hannah Gufferman, author of The Best of Everything After 50: The Experts Guide to Style, Sex, Health, Money and More. She interviewed top experts including Diane Furstenberg ( fashion), Frederic Fekkai ( hair) and Dr Patricia Wexler ( skin) to come up with ideas of the best and the brightest to deal with issues that affect 50 plus women.
In addition she has a weekly front page column on Huffington Post, is the Chief Pundit for Fabulous Over Fifty and is a regular contributor to AARP. Barbara has appeared on The Today Show, and Good Morning America and is a regular on NPR, Dr Oz Sirius Radio and the Oprah Channel. Last year the National Osteoporosis Foundation honored her for her outspoken support of women’s health.
