Easy Meal Makeovers With Mango (NAPSA)—Need a secret weapon against food boredom? Looking for a simple, foolproof ingredient to add an element of surprise to your next meal? Look to mangos to make over dishes with naturally sweet, tropical flavor. Mango’s versatile taste enhances any meal, like on-the-go breakfasts, brown-bag lunches, after-school snacks and family dinners. They pair well with other flavors, transforming meals and snacks with fresh flavor that brightens your plate and your taste buds. If you are trying to maintain a fresh and fit lifestyle, mangos deliver a host of nutrients to make healthy eating more delicious. They are high in fiber, cholesterolfree, fat-free, and a good source of dietary fiber. A one-cup serving of mangos is just 100 calories and provides 100 percent of your daily vitamin C. That’s not all: Mangos live up to their superfruit status with more than 20 vitamins and minerals. A few simple tips when selecting a mango will make this healthy fruit a weekly staple on your grocery list. To find a ripe mango, just squeeze gently. Color isn’t always the best indicator of ripeness. A ripe mango will be slightly soft like a peach or avocado. Keep unripe mangos at room temperature and store ripe mangos in the refrigerator. To speed up the ripening process, place unripe mangos in a paper bag. Whole ripe mangos may be stored for up to five days in the refrigerator, or can be sliced, cubed and placed in an airtight container in the freezer for up to six months. Once you have a ripe mango, wash the fruit and use a clean knife and cutting board for slicing. Simply slice off the sides of the fruit

Give your lunch a punch of pizzazz: Have a ham, cheese and mango sandwich. about a quarter of an inch off center, avoiding the large seed in the center. Once you have these two sides, or mango cheeks, you can get to the flesh by slicing through the flesh but not through the skin and scooping it out with a spoon. Once cut, mangos don’t lose their color, and the texture holds up extremely well, making them a great prep-ahead fruit. Keep slices on hand to upgrade everyday staples like mango on cereal or oatmeal, quesadillas with mango, mango and ice cream, or yogurt topped with mango. Since mangos are available year-round, they are a perfect addition to everyday favorites, family staples and tried-and-true recipes. The fresh taste of mango is a fun departure from tropical fruits such as banana or pineapple. Kick up the flavor in everyday meals like toast topped with almost butter and mango or gooey-sweet Mango Upside-Down Cake. Adding mango is also a great way to upgrade inseason produce year-round, from mango-strawberry shortcake and mango and peach crisp to mangocranberry sauce and mango and yams with toasted marshmallows. Mango’s flavor is bright and sweet with a little tang, so try it

in dishes where you might use a tomato, like mango salsa, Caprese salad with mango, fresh mozzarella and basil or a mixed green salad. Also, don’t be afraid to try mango on the grill, baked in sweets or sprinkled with sugar and put under the broiler. For a simple lunchtime makeover, add fresh mango slices to a classic sandwich like Grilled Ham and Cheese with Mango. Tropical mango makes a sweet addition to this traditional dish with an unexpected pop of flavor and color. What do you call it when mangos create a tropical transformation? A Mangover, of course. Grilled Ham and Cheese with Mango Makes 1 sandwich 2 Tbsp. softened butter 2 slices whole wheat bread 2 slices Monterey Jack cheese 4 slices deli ham 1 mango (about 1 pound), peeled, pitted and sliced Spread 1 tablespoon butter on one side of each piece of bread. On first slice of bread, place 1 slice cheese, ham and mango on unbuttered side of bread. Top with remaining slice of cheese and second piece of bread, buttered side up. Heat small, nonstick skillet over medium-low heat. Place sandwich in skillet and cook until golden brown and cheese is melted, 3 to 4 minutes per side.

Diabetes And Eyes: What Your Vision Is Trying To Tell You (NAPSA)—Diabetes is a serious disease that can affect many aspects of the body—the heart and kidneys, blood circulation and even the eyes. 1 In fact, diabetic eye disease has increased in prevalence by 89 percent between 2000 and 2010 and is a leading cause of blindness among American adults.2, 3 Despite this, vision care is often overlooked by people with diabetes as they work to manage the many other health problems the disease can cause. According to a survey by the American Optometric Association, 55 percent of people are unaware that diabetic eye disease often has no visual signs or symptoms.4 Additionally, 44 percent of Americans don’t know that a person with diabetes should have a comprehensive eye exam once a year, including a retina (dilated) eye exam. 4 Yet these exams are the only way to diagnose serious eye diseases associated with diabetes at its early stage. 5 Regular retina eye

Annual retina eye exams are the best way to catch developing eye diseases among people with diabetes. exams are critical for early detection and treatment of these progressive eye diseases that often begin without warning. The longer a person has diabetes, the higher their risk for eye disease. Over time, diabetes may cause damage to the blood vessels in the back of the eye, known as

diabetic retinopathy, which can lead to diabetic macular edema (DME). DME occurs when the damaged blood vessels leak fluid and cause swelling. Although symptoms are not always present, this swelling can cause blurred vision, double vision and patches in vision, which may appear as small black dots or lines “floating” across the front of the eye. Approximately 26 million Americans have diabetes and may be at risk for DME. 6 More than 560,000 Americans have DME. 7 Yet approximately 55 percent are unaware that they have the disease.7 African Americans and Hispanics over the age of 40 are also at a higher risk for DME.8 Prevent Vision Loss Getting an annual retina eye exam is the best way to help detect changes in vision. Don’t wait—make an appointment with a retina specialist today. For more information about DME and tips for healthy vision, visit
