Walk With a Doc!


According to the American Heart Association, walking has the lowest dropout rate of any physical activity. Think it doesn’t do any good? Think again. Walking is low impact, so it’s easier on the joints than running.

Walks will take place the first Saturday of each month at 9:00AM:
  • January 7th: walk will be led by Dr. Richard Parent with St. Helena Hospital.
Location:  The Hartle Court Shelter on the Napa Valley Vine Trail

Napa Valley Resolution Run
The 5K/10K grows in its 5th year!
2017 started with a bang as a record number of people ran and walked the New Year's day race!  Yountville welcomed fitness enthusiasts and first time 5Kers alike as they took to the streets and Vine Trail. Some had set lofty goals of achieving a personal record, others wanted to enjoy the fresh new year at a more leisurely pace. The 10K was won by Kevin Pool in a time of 32:32. Michelle La Sala was the winner of the women's 10K in 42:11. Vadim Pelavin crossed the line first in the men's 5K in a time of 17:20. Amy Crain ran 19:08 to finish first in the women's 5K.

January Recipe
 
Greek Yogurt Deviled Eggs

Ingredients:
12 hard-cooked large eggs, peeled*
About 2 tbsp. finely chopped spring onion*
1/2 cup plus 2 tbsp. low-fat Greek yogurt
3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1 tablespoon country Dijon mustard
About 1 tbsp. finely chopped chives
About 2 tbsp. finely chopped spring onion
      

Preparation

1. Cut eggs in half lengthwise and pop yolks into a food processor; reserve whites. Add yogurt and salt to food processor and whirl until smooth, scraping down bowl as needed.

2. Transfer yolk mixture to a medium bowl and stir in mustard, 1 tbsp. chives, and 2 tbsp. onion to blend. Set egg whites on a platter, hollow side up. Scoop yolk mixture into a piping bag fitted with a star tip and pipe mixture into hollows. Sprinkle with more chives and onion if you like.

*For perfect hard-cooked eggs, cover them in cold water in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and let stand 12 minutes. Plunge cooked eggs into ice water, crack all over, and let sit in the water for a few minutes before peeling. Look for spring onions (regular onions picked young) at farmers' markets in spring and at Latino markets year-round. They have a fatter bulb than green onions--which have less crunch but make a good substitute.
