Heart

What was initially diagnosed as a simple infection changed Amy Malsem’s life forever… As a happy, athletic 25-year-old, Amy Malsem was busy running her own business and enjoying an active life. A sore throat resulted in a common diagnosis of throat infection, but the infection was actually one that attacked Amy’s organs, mostly her heart.

Most women Amy’s age don’t have their own cardiac teams, and don’t have to know or truly understand words such as severe heart failure, dilated cardiomyopathy, transplantation and ejection fraction. Her personal favourites to know and understand were lifesaving, surgery-avoiding beta-blockers. The journey from these first words to the present day has included many unpredictable challenges and triumphs which Amy has met with courage, determination and a well-maintained sense of humour. “In my opinion, the keys to regaining excellent health are overcoming the fear of the prognosis, proactively accessing accurate expertise and information, laughing with the people you love as heartily (no pun intended) and as often as possible and shopping, using the

BEST excuse ever, ‘I literally can’t live without owning those shoes’,” she says. Amy, now in her 30s, continues to manage her heart condition well and is thoroughly enjoying her business and social life. She finds fun, challenging ways to stay healthy, like learning to swim butterfly despite limited talent for it and walking her two energetic dogs. Amy also enjoys her time spent inspiring others to live a full and healthy life.

Healthy for thought Fresh fruit and vegetables are known as the all stars because of the punch they pack in the health stakes.They are low in fat, provide protective nutrients to help combat disease and are a rich source of fibre. Here’s a guide to the benefits of nature’s very own super foods…

Low in fat

High in nutrients

Rich in fibre

Australian waistlines are among the widest in the world, sparking fears that obesity-related diseases will take their toll on our already overstretched health system. A greater reliance on fresh fruit and vegetables, which have a low-fat content, could help those battling to lose excess kilos. Nutritionist Catherine Saxelby says in her book Nutrition for Life that reducing weight almost always reduces cholesterol (both total and the harmful LDL-cholesterol) as well as lowering blood pressure. Many fruits and vegetables are also regarded as low GI (Glycemic Index) foods, helping you to feel full for longer and keep blood sugar levels steady, reducing the storage of fat.

Dark green leafy vegetables, such as spinach and Asian greens, are packed with nutrients. Make sure they make a regular appearance on your plate because they are known to be rich in the B vitamin folate which may help to reduce homocysteine, a risk factor for heart disease. Folate also has a role to play in the formation of red blood cells and enzymes and preventing anaemia. Spinach is also a good source of protective antioxidants vitamin C, beta carotene and vitamin E. In fact, a standard serve of spinach provides 10 milligrams of vitamin C, one-third of the recommended daily intake. Greens are also sources of minerals magnesium and iron, while calcium is found in broccoli.

By eating a diet rich in fruits and vegetables, you are improving the fibre profile of your diet. That will aid digestion and prevent constipation, reducing the need for laxatives and lowering the risk of developing haemorrhoids and diverticular disease (a condition affecting the large bowel or colon). Saxelby says fibre can also help prevent cancer, by diluting the bowel contents and shortening the time for the food residue to pass through, thus minimising contact with any carcinogens (cancer-causing substances) ingested. It also has the ability to bind possible cancer agents and excrete them. She even thinks fibre is responsible for the saying, “An apple a day keeps the doctor away!”

Slow Co oking to dine for... In the recently published ‘Slow’, Allyson Gofton provides easy-to-follow recipes for those who like delicious dishes that simmer away while you work, rest and play.

Potato & lemon grass soup 1 onion, peeled and finely diced 50 grams butter 4 lemon grass stalks 1 leek, white part only, finely sliced 500 grams floury potatoes, peeled and diced 4 cups water 3–4 teaspoons chicken stock powder 1 cup milk ½ cup crème fraîche or sour cream 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh chives

Turn the slow cooker on to low to prewarm while gathering and preparing the ingredients.

serves 6–8 preparation time 20 minutes cooking time low 5–6 hours, high 3–4 hours, plus extra 30 minutes

Into the pre-warmed slow cooker put the onion and butter from the pan with the lemon grass stalks, leek, potatoes, water and chicken stock powder and stir as well as possible to mix the ingredients evenly. Cover with the lid.

Cook the onion in the butter in a frying-pan over a moderate heat for about 12–15 minutes, stirring occasionally until the onion is soft. Try not to brown the onion. Hit the lemon grass stalks with a mallet or the handle base of a cook’s knife to bruise them. This allows the flavours to come through during cooking.

Cook on low for 5–6 hours or on high for 3–4 hours, or until the potato is tender. Remove the lemon grass stalks and purée the ingredients in a food processor or with a blender until smooth. Return to the slow cooker with the milk, crème fraîche or sour cream and chives and cover with the lid. Cook on high for 30 minutes before serving hot with a drizzle of olive oil (lemon-scented is nice here) and a few extra chives. Alternatively, allow the soup to chill and serve cold.

Greek lamb with spinach, pine nuts & feta 250 grams frozen or fresh spinach 2 spring onions, trimmed and finely chopped ¼ cup well-packed chopped fresh parsley ½ teaspoon dried dill leaves or 1 tablespoon chopped fresh dill 100 grams feta, crumbled ¼ cup grated Parmesan ½ –¾ cup pine nuts, toasted 1 boned full leg of lamb 1–2 onions, peeled and finely chopped 1–2 teaspoons minced garlic 1 cup green olives 1 cup dry white wine ½ cup olive oil, extra virgin olive oil is nice here 400-gram can borlotti beans, butter beans or chickpeas, well-drained and rinsed ½ cup chopped fresh parsley grated rind one lemon serves 10 preparation time without browning 30 minutes preparation time with browning 40 minutes cooking time low 5–7 hours, high 3–4 hours, plus extra 30 minutes

Turn the slow cooker on to low to pre-warm while gathering and preparing the ingredients. Defrost the spinach if frozen and place between two dinner plates. Squeeze the plates over a sink and allow excess moisture to fall away. Press as firmly as you can so the spinach is as dry as possible. If using fresh spinach, wash the leaves, remove the stalks and cook the leaves in a saucepan with only the water that clings to the leaves, until wilted. Drain and chop finely. Mix the spinach together with the spring onion, parsley, dill, feta, Parmesan and pine nuts. Season well with pepper. Using skewers, secure the opening at the knuckle-end of the boned leg of lamb. Pack the filling into the cavity where the bone has been removed. Use skewers and/or string to secure the opening at the top of the leg of lamb to ensure the filling is well-enclosed.

If wishing to brown the lamb: Brown the lamb as well as possible in a dash of oil in a hot frying-pan. Transfer to the slow cooker. Scatter in the onion, garlic and olives, and then pour in the wine and olive oil. Season with salt and pepper and cover with the lid. Cook on low for 5–7 hours or on high for 3–4 hours. Carefully remove the lamb from the slow cooker. Scatter in the beans or chickpeas, parsley and lemon rind and stir to mix. Cover and cook on high for a further 30 minutes while the lamb is resting. Serve the lamb sliced with spoonfuls of the sauce and vegetables and accompany with grilled, sliced eggplant and baked vine tomatoes. warringah mall COASTING Lifestyle

Chloe, Will, Annabel and Charlie Champion spend their time at Warringah Mall. Here’s what they choose when they have a fast food craving.

Chloe Champion When budding model Chloe catches up with friends at the mall, she opts for healthy, low-fat takeaway to keep her trim for fashion shoots. A 99% fat-free Berry Crush from Boost Juice, a grilled chicken caesar salad from Sumo Salad, fresh sushi or sashimi from Sushi Bar or a vegetable stir-fry from Simply Noodles. These are her favourite fast food choices. Well, most of the time. Every now and then she splashes out on a sweet treat, usually a chocolate muffin from Muffin Break.

Will Champion Skateboarding and surfing require plenty of energy food so Will is pretty keen on carbs to fuel his hobbies. In the blissful position of being able to eat anything he likes without piling on the kilos, Will often incurs Chloe’s outrage as he tucks into nachos, tacos or burritos with lashings of cheese and sour cream followed by a serve of piping hot potatoes from Wrap the Mexicana. Or if he’s in the mood for pasta, he’ll head to Pasta e Basta for a slice of delicious lasagna.

Annabel Champion

Annabel

Annabel is the dessert queen of the family. If her parents permitted, she would eliminate main meals and just eat cake! At the mall, she can’t go past the Tiny Teddy Sundae from Donut King. If she’s with Chloe, she usually delights in a donut or two in any flavour! When sweets are off the menu, she enjoys a Crispy Chicken Snack wrap from McDonald’s.

Charlie

Charlie Champion In the taste department, Charlie is the most easy-going of all the Champions. He’ll eat almost anything. He’s partial to a chicken burger from Oporto and teriyaki beef rolls from Rockin’ Rolls. Of course, he likes all the finishing touches too, especially the great range at Wendy’s. It’s always a tough choice between the Ice Cream Cupcake filled with a scoop of ice cream and topped with flavoured whip cream and chocolate or the Mega Triple Choc Shake. Sometimes he takes so long to make up his mind that Chloe and Will buy both for all the family to share.

4 ways to keep fit this It may be winter but there’s a lot to do inside and out on the Northern Beaches. You can go mountain bike riding, swimming, hiking or work out in the gym. Here’s a guide to help you get started… workout too. As you ride over bumpy, hilly terrain then soar down hills, you will be boosting your cardio fitness, building muscle, burning fat and improving balance and core strength. And it’s fun being in the great outdoors and riding in beautiful countryside.

1. On your bike Throughout winter, Sydney is often blessed with clear skies and calm, sunny days, the perfect conditions to experience the adrenalin-packed sport of mountain biking.

Start off with some simple rides to slowly build up your endurance before attempting longer, harder journeys (See Where to go for a few ideas on local trails). Visit the Northern Beaches Mountain Biking Group’s website www.nobmob.com for details on social rides and how to enjoy the sport with like-minded people. If you wish to join a local club, check out Manly Warringah Mountain Biking Club at www.mwmtb.com/content/

Mountain biking is ideal for all the family and it’s something you can do on your own or with a group or club. It’s easy to get started. Simply hire a bike (and helmet) or buy a set of wheels and hit the many trails in the Northern Beaches from Manly Dam to West Head and beyond. Mountain bikers tackle all sorts of terrain from fire trails and back roads to fields and mountains. It’s a great

Where to go You don’t have to go far on the Northern Beaches to find great places to ride. The 9.7km loop around Manly Dam is regarded as one of Sydney’s best rides and suits all levels, from beginner to advanced. Bairne Track is an easy 10km fire trail ride, perfect for beginners, rewarding riders with stunning views over Pittwater. The Northern Beaches Mountain Biking Group recommends driving to West Head Road then continuing on for a further 6.2km from the junction with McCarrs Creek Road. You will need a National Parks and Wildlife pass or you can park by McCarrs Creek and cycle up.

Gear to go

For a range of comfortable gear, including shorts and shirts, to wear mountain biking, visit Rebel Sport, Lorna Jane and lululemon athletica at Warringah Mall.

2. Hit the water

Where to go

Swimming in winter can be more challenging than other sports because of the chill factor. While some hardy souls swim all-year round, even travelling up the coast and beyond to compete in ocean swims, it will not be for everyone, even with the best wetsuit money can buy.

If you prefer to exercise in a group, join a squad such as the Narelle Simpson Swim School, which operates out of the Manly Andrew “Boy” Charlton Swim Centre narellesimpsonswimschool.com.au or sign up for Adult Swimfit or Casual SwimFit classes at the Warringah Aquatic Swimming Pool warringah.nsw.gov.au/wac

However, there is no excuse for not swimming indoors in a heated pool at your local swim centre. Some centres also have an outdoor heated pool that is open all-year round or open from August. So you can get fit in winter, pencil in a few events on your calendar for next summer to test out your new-found endurance and improved cardio fitness.

Then, once you are fit, you may like to enter next season’s ocean swims, such as the 1km or 2km Cole Classic from Manly to Shelly Beach in February or the South Curl Curl Surf Life Saving Club Ocean Swim around the headland to Freshwater Beach in April.

You can start off with a gentle swim then build up to something more ambitious. For example, aim to swim about 500m or whatever feels comfortable then start adding more lengths until you are swimming about 1km or more, depending on your goals. Mix up your strokes and pace and add variety to your routine with a kickboard and fins. To add another dimension, start timing your lengths or join a squad (see Where to go).

warringahmall.com.au

[9]

Gear to go You’ll need swimmers, goggles, cap, fins, kickboard, gear bag or back pack and, ideally, a quickdrying towel. Head to Rebel Sport, lululemon athletica, The Big Swim, City Beach and Surf Dive ‘n’ Ski at Warringah Mall for all your swimming needs.

[11]

[12]

If you haven’t had a swimming lesson since you were a teenager or even earlier, consider stroke correction classes. It may only take one 30-minute session to improve your speed through the water.

4 ways to keep fit this 3. Take a hike

Where to go

The Northern Beaches is a hiker’s dream with more than 30km of coastline and three national parks, Sydney Harbour, Ku-ring-gai Chase, and Garigal.

A classic in the Northern Beaches, the 9km Spit Bridge to Manly walk in the Sydney Harbour National Park passes lovely beaches, waterfront homes, pockets of subtropical rainforest and impressive cliffs with views to the heads. Don’t forget to pack your camera. Allow at least three hours one way to appreciate the surroundings.

You can also stroll around Manly Dam Reserve, the cliff-top at Long Reef or try the 1km walk to Barrenjoey Lighthouse on the headland at Palm Beach. For details, visit www.nationalparks.nsw.gov.au

[ 2]

For many, hiking in Sydney is more enjoyable in winter’s cooler temperatures as you can rule out the humidity factor. It’s also a great way to get fit. It is relatively low impact, improves heart health, tones legs and aids weight loss. It’s a pastime that can be targeted at different [1] fitness levels so it’s something the whole family can enjoy. Simply start with a 1km or 2km walk then build up to longer, more challenging day hikes. All you need is a decent pair of walking shoes, layered, comfortable clothing, a packed lunch and snacks for energy, water bottle, hat and a camera to capture views and wildlife.

In Ku-ring-gai Chase, the mediumrated 7km West Head Resolute Track offers views from Pittwater to Palm Beach. For details, visit www.environment.nsw.gov.au Garigal, which takes in the valley of Middle Harbour Creek, its tributaries, the slopes along the northern side of Middle Harbour to Bantry Bay and part of the Narrabeen Lake catchment, offers a choice of tracks. Bushwalking NSW’s. For details visit www.ozultimate.com

Gear to go Hiking gear continues to feature more high-tech, lightweight and quick-drying, sweat-absorbent fabrics. To get geared up for hiking, including shorts, pants, shirts, tops, shoes, fleece, waterproof jacket and backpack, try Mountain Designs, Kathmandu, The Athlete’s Foot and Foot Locker at Warringah Mall.

4. Work up a sweat Not everyone likes to exercise in the great outdoors through winter. If you fit this category, you can gain an efficient workout in a short space of time at your local gym. You’ll have the opportunity to exercise in a group if you take a class or you can do your own thing, combining a program of weights with cardio machines such as the treadmill, bike or cross-trainer. You can also hire a personal trainer to take your fitness up another notch or to inspire you to turn up in the first place! Exercising at a gym can do wonders for your cardio fitness. If you add weight sessions, you’ll build and tone muscle, helping to prevent the onset of the brittle bone disease osteoporosis. You’ll also burn fat faster. There are other benefits too. For example, classes such as yoga and pilates help improve core strength and flexibility.

Body Burn, X Train, Boxing, Body Step, Dance, Pilates and Yoga. If weightloss rather than fitness is your primary goal, the Tony Ferguson Weightloss Program, backed by a team of health professionals, has helped over 600,000 Australians lose weight. The centre, on Level 2 near Hoyts, has been created as a destination for customers looking for weight-loss solutions in a supportive environment.

Gear to go Suitable shoes, socks, tights, shorts, track pants and sweatabsorbing tops are the staples for gym workout sessions. For great gear, try Rebel Sport, lululemon athletica and Lorna Jane [8] at Warringah Mall.

Just a few of my favourite things

Sky news reader Tracey Spicer juggles many roles, from Warringah Mall Eagles Angel and mother of two to radio broadcaster and newspaper columnist. She takes time out from her busy schedule to reveal her five favourite things inside her Northern Beaches home.

Aboriginal painting My all-time favourite thing is a beautiful piece of traditional Aboriginal art by Charlie Tjapangati that I bought a few years ago from Birrung Gallery in Woolloomooloo. I have been an ambassador for World Vision which runs this gallery and much of the proceeds go back into the community to help areas such as housing, sanitation and welfare. It is a win-win. The money goes to a charity and I have something beautiful in the house to teach my kids about the indigenous people of this country. It’s the first piece of art I have ever bought and it has pride of place in the lounge room.

Masai necklace

Computer

I was given this necklace by Masai tribespeople when I was working for World Vision in Kenya. I keep it on my bookshelf with other African artefacts. It reminds me of the two trips I took that changed my life: one to Bangladesh and one to Kenya. It’s a constant reminder of how fortunate we are to live in a western country and how important it is for us to help those less fortunate whenever we can.

I love my new computer. I love it almost as much as my husband. I’ve always had pretty ordinary PCs but recently I bought a desktop Mac with a screen almost the size of a cinema. I do so much writing from home that it’s great to have something as wonderful as this to work on.

Cosy up with these warm, new looks for winter.

Slow cooker My best friend bought me a slow cooker for my birthday last year. It’s truly the best thing since sliced bread. I am mad about cooking corned beef so I’ll put the meat on first thing in the morning and let it cook for nine hours before taking it out and serving with vegetables. It’s a great invention for a working mother.

Bookshelf I am a voracious reader and I keep every book I love on this bookshelf in my home office. It gives me great joy, reminding me of everything I’ve loved about the books. I think it is quite striking and must be strong because I have so many books on it.

Sharing the magic and romance of living by the sea

WIN $1,000

Jedo’s Beach House Gift Voucher For your chance to WIN this perfect COASTING Lifestyle magazine prize, simply visit warringahmall.com.au and enter the competition. The $1,000 Jedo’s Beach House Gift Voucher is valid for 6 months after the draw date. Competition closes 23 July 2010. NSW Permit No. LTPS/10/5015

Beach House ‘Living by the sea’ is the inspiration behind the innovative furniture and decorative homeware ranges to be found at Jedo’s Beach House. Founded 12 years ago, there’s something unique to be discovered that’s perfect for every home on Sydney’s Northern Peninsula. From Caribbean aqua blues to muted and sun-bleached earth tones, there’s also the “Just for Jedo’s” custom design furniture and homewares range to complement and invigorate any living space.

Apart from the captivating choices you’ll find when you enter Jedo’s Beach House at Warringah Mall, it’s the welcoming and knowledgeable staff that makes finding something special that much more engaging. It starts with owners David and Nell Laime and visual merchandiser Susie Laidlaw who, with their team that includes Kerry, Sandi, Jessica, Kendall and Bec, have been voted finalists for the upcoming 2010 Northern Beaches Local Business Awards in the Home Furnishings category. Whether it’s a fresh and invigorating makeover for your home, a special gift or an everyday escape to the beach-inspired tropics, you’ll find Jedo’s Beach House’s new and exclusive lifestyle store at Shop 192, Level 1 at Warringah Mall. Phone: (02) 9905 2177. During July 2010, the doors to Jedo’s Beach House will be temporarily closed for a short period before re-opening with an even more beautiful store design filled with the very best of coastal style.

easier After a spell of shopping, your exit from Warringah Mall’s carpark will be smoother and swifter thanks to a new payment system. Warringah Mall will introduce a fast, efficient Auto Pay system on 1 July so you can pay before returning to the driver’s seat. The new payment method applies only to stays over three hours. Shoppers will still be entitled to three hours of FREE parking, or four with a movie ticket. So how will it work? After you park your car, you simply take your ticket with you when you shop. If you’ve been shopping for less than three hours, simply return to your car and exit as usual. If you’ve been at the mall for over three hours, simply pay at the Auto Pay machine using cash, Visa or MasterCard before stepping back into your car or you can pay at the exit gate with Visa or MasterCard. When you exit, simply insert the ticket. Commenting on the new system, Philip Spence, Warringah Mall Centre Manager, said: “We’re delighted to put in place a modern and efficient parking system to help save our customers time when exiting the mall. The new system will make a visit to Warringah Mall an even better experience for shoppers.”
