Reasons to Include More Dair y in Your Diet A healthy diet can improve quality of life and reduce a person's risk of developing disease or other negative health conditions. For example, a diet rich in fruits and vegetables can boost the immune system and promote cardiovascular health, lowering the risk of heart disease in the process. While the benefits of including fruits and vegetables in your diet are widely known, the medical benefits of dairy are often overlooked. The following are a handful of ways that dairy products like low-fat milk, cottage cheese and yogurt can make a nutritious and beneficial addition to your diet. • Dairy packs a protein- and calcium-laden punch. One cup of nonfat yogurt can provide as much as onethird of your daily recommended calcium intake and nearly 20 percent of your daily recommended protein intake. Though dairy products like ice cream don't pack the same nutritious punch as yogurt, healthier fare like reduced-fat cheese and skim milk can go a long way toward meeting your daily intake of protein and calcium. • Dairy is a great source of vitamin D. In addition to providing sufficient calcium and protein, dairy also helps men, women and children boost their vitamin D. That's especially important in the winter months when people tend to get less exposure to the sun. Exposure to the sun is a natural way to boost your vitamin D, but the shorter days and colder weather of winter can make it hard to get sufficient vitamin D during that time of year. Dairy products like low-fat milk can boost your vitamin D, which can improve your bone health and, according to recent research, might help reduce your cancer risk. • Dairy may help lower your blood pressure. Men and women with high blood pressure might benefit from including more dairy in their diets. In a study of 5,000 adults, researchers found that those who reported consuming the most low-fat dairy products were more than 50 percent less likely to develop high blood pressure than those who consumed less low-fat dairy. Though researchers are not certain as to the reason behind low-fat dairy products' impact on blood pressure, some theorize that their calcium and protein content are likely behind the benefit. • Dairy benefits your bones. Dairy has long been known to improve bone density, but it's not just seniors who benefit from the bone-strengthening impact of dairy. Youngsters who consume dairy can also expect an increase in bone mass, which can make them less susceptible to injuries like broken bones. Seniors who consume dairy to improve their bone density should know that a recent study from researchers at the Institute for Aging Research found that not all dairy products are equal when it comes to improving bone density. While milk and yogurt were linked to higher bone mineral density, dairy products like cream and ice cream contain less protein, calcium and vitamin D — and more fat and sugar than yogurt and milk — and these products may actually be associated with lower bone mineral density. Though there are many ways men and women can improve their overall health, it's important to consider the nutritional value of dairy when making any alterations to your diet. - Metro Services

Six Can’t-Fail Sofa Buying Tips Sofas are a staple of any household and buying the perfect one may not only be a challenge, but it can also mean a big investment. Before you head out to shop, consider these tips so you not only get a bargain, but a good buy. 1. Take measurements. The last thing you want is a sofa that's over- or under-sized for the room. Start by measuring your room. Make a drawing, noting doors and windows, and bring it with you. Most furniture stores have onsite decorators who can put your dimensions into a computer and show you just what your new sofa would look like in the room and if it will fit. 2. Photograph your room. Take a few pictures of your room and bring the picture with you as you shop. Even a digital photo on your phone is a big help in remembering important details about the room. Better yet, you can show it to the store's interior designer for input.

3. Ask for a designer. Large national chains and locally-owned furniture stores frequently have designers on staff to help you make a selection. Rather than relying on a sales person, a designer can offer considerations and ideas you might not have thought of to help you make a better, more informed purchase. 4. Give it the Goldilocks test. Size matters when it comes to sofas and there's more to size than just length; size also refers to the pitch of the seating. Check that seat cushions aren't so deep that your feet are off the floor, making you feel like a little kid, and making your petite guests uncomfortable. Other sofas have backs with a pitch that causes those seated to lean far back, making them unsuitable for formal use and possibly uncomfortable for guests with neck or back problems. Older family members may have trouble getting up from these sofas. You want to be sure, like Goldilocks, that the sofa you pick is "just right." 5. Take it for a test drive. Once you've found a sofa you like that fits in your room, it's time for a test plop. Sit on it, lie on it and generally use it the way you'd use your existing couch. If the sofa is for watching TV, stretch out on it the way you would at home. If you've brought the kids along, have everyone sit on the sofa together. 6. Ask yourself, will it blend? To make sure the sofa will match your decor, use the photo you've brought along. Does it match the rest of your furniture? If you're tempted to go with a large or wild pattern, remember that you'll be living with that for a while and it may turn stale. A smarter choice is to get a neutral sofa and use pattern in your wall coverings or cushions because you can change these elements more easily.

Make Your Graduation Party a Success It's the season for celebrating. Thousands of graduates will be marching down school auditorium aisles soon to receive their diplomas. Tassels will be flipped and caps will be tossed in the air in celebration. After the ceremony, parties all across the country will ensue. If yours is a family who will be commemorating the accomplishments of a graduation by inviting friends and family to celebrate, you may want to begin party preparation early on and follow some tips for entertaining success. START PLANNING NOW Special events that take place at specific times of the year can make finding a venue or hiring party vendors quite competitive. Graduations occur during a very limited window of time and waiting until the last minute to secure a party site or make catering reservations could leave you with few options. Begin making reservations the moment you learn your son or daughter’s graduation date. If you plan to celebrate on a day other than the graduation day, then there may be more room for negotiation. Planning early also helps you to get a better price. During crunch time at the end of the school year, businesses may realize their products and services are in high demand and ask a steeper price. Those Planning a graduation party who book and buy early will have early can save you money. the benefit of shopping around for the best price. Some of the planning that should take place early on includes: • Party venue reservation, • Setting up catering, • Determining a guest list, • Establishing a budget. MONEY-SAVING TIPS Cost is a big factor when it comes to social occasions. Saving money with respect to graduation parties can be as simple as joining resources. Chances are you know several families who are having graduation parties at the same time as yours. Consider having a joint party with a few families so graduates can celebrate together. A joint party can also save you money. Each can be responsible for a certain aspect of the party experience and cutting the costs two or three ways helps everyone meet their budgets. Another way to keep costs down is to have the party on a weeknight or a day other than the graduation. Weekends will be the most expensive, especially weekend evenings. Altering the time or day of the party can save you money. In addition, limit the menu to finger foods or snacks to keep the price in check. CONSIDER AN OPEN-HOUSE POLICY Hosting a graduation party open house means that people can drop by during a specific time frame and mingle. It takes the pressure off of having a party start and end at a firm time. Graduates often find this is a good option so that they can hop from party to party and celebrate with friends who are having their own events. KEEP IT SAFE Serving alcohol at a high school graduation party is unadvisable, as many of the guests may be underage. In many instances, the party host is responsible for the well-being of party guests. Should guests leave intoxicated and get injured or cause an accident, you may be liable. At college graduation parties, alcohol may be served, but as a parent it is your responsibility to ensure guests are able to make it home safely and to take charge if a guest is intoxicated. Having a plan established and securing the supplies, food and venue for your party in advance will make the party much easier to pull off. That means you will be able to enjoy the festivities in full the actual day of the celebration. -Metro Services

Frank’s Steaks 4 Jericho Turnpike, Jericho (516) 338-4595, frankssteaks.com “You Never Know Who You’ll Be Sitting Next to at Frank’s Steaks” reads the sign above a framed list of over 100 wellknown names in the entranceway of the Jericho steakhouse. Long Island native Billy Joel, Regis Philbin, Gloria Estefan, Kevin James, the cast of The Sopranos, Micky Dolen of The Monkees and New York Mets announcer Howie Rose have all feasted on the traditional American dishes at Frank’s Steaks. On the way to your table, you will notice one wall decorated with beautifully crafted, handmade, crayon drawings. Upon being seated, a cup of crayons on the table and the white paper tablecloth make everything clear. Guests’ drawings of people, landscapes and animals — mostly praising the steakhouse — adorn the restaurant’s wall and give a unique flair to the dining area. Whether dining alone, with friends, family, your significant other or co-workers, the atmosphere of Frank’s Steaks is suitable for any occasion. TVs in the bar area channel the big game or latest news, with dining tables to the left, but a separate dining area without the distraction makes for a professional, romantic or even casual evening.

Every meal begins with warm bread: pumpernickel, onion and breadsticks. After perusing the wine list of over 150 choices, it was time to make a decision on our appetizer, which resulted in Baked Littleneck Clams ($11.95) and a Caesar Salad ($8.95). The eight clams were succulent and warm, while the salad was fresh, with plenty of dressing and Parmesan cheese. Other choices include Double Gorgonzola Bread, Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms, Maryland Crab Cakes and Chicken Tenders. Having heard about Frank’s Steaks’ Zagat-rated Romanian Skirt Steak ($29.95), one of our entrees was a no-brainer. Without even looking at the menu, my friend chose what had been voted as “The Best Skirt Steak on Earth” and it definitely met our expectations. Marinated in Frank’s Secret Sauce of garlic, along with duck sauce and a Worcestershire base, this was an amazing recipe for one of the more delicious steaks we have eaten. Knowing it would be difficult to find a meal that would measure up, I chose the Grilled Chicken Teriyaki ($19.95). Smothered in sauce, I could taste the hint of garlic and apricot in the two meaty pieces of boneless chicken breast. As a side, we dipped Frank’s Potatoes ($7.95) — thick French fries with onions — into Frank’s Steak Sauce. On its own, the sauce tasted like it should be paired with a seafood dish, but when combined with the potatoes, it was fabulous. All sides are family-style and we also enjoyed the flavorful Broccoli with garlic ($7.95). The Zagat-rated dish isn’t the only thing to rave about at Frank’s Steaks. Served only on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, the King Cut USDA Prime Rib of Beef is described on the menu as a 30oz. large monster cut, so big “you won’t believe it!!” Frank’s Steaks has 12 tantalizing steak choices and roasts, racks, chops, seafood and chicken dishes, as well as kid’s choices to complete the menu. Although tempted by Frank’s Triple Chocolate Delight, Frank’s Rice Pudding, Angel Food Cake and Cheese Cake, we were in the mood for Chocolate Mousse ($7.50) and the fine Swiss chocolate, thick cream and fresh whipped cream came layered in a small glass cup; it was a soothing way to top off a hearty meal. This fine steakhouse has a Father’s Day Special, as well as a Summer Lobster Feast, now until September 22. Frank’s Steaks is open seven days a week; they have another location at 54 Lincoln Avenue, in Rockville Centre. -Kristin Cacchioli

First Impressions Home Remodeling helps clients achieve their dream homes, customized to their lifestyle and liking. Owner Paul Panagiotidis has been in the business for almost thirty years and said that it is good for people to remodel their homes, because “your home is something very special and you need to be happy wherever you are living. When you have the right person for the job, remodeling your home can be a very pleasant experience.” First Impressions is a family business; their years of experience ensure that each job is done right the first time. Panagiotidis has been working in the field, helping his father, since he was about eight years old. His skills and knowledge have vastly accumulated over the years and he now guarantees that First Impressions is the ultimate company for efficiency, quality and time management. “You get the best of everything when you work with us. No one can do it as efficiently and offer you the best quality in the shortest amount of time. We get everything done right and don’t draw out the pro-

cess any longer than it needs to be,” stated Panagiotidis. First Impressions relocated to the North Shore, since that is where most of the work is, and Panagiotidis wanted to be more available to his clients. They relocated to Hicksville and are better able to serve their clients from their office on North Broadway. “Customer service, along with quality work, are my top priorities, and because of that, I have built a strong reputation in the area,” said Panagiotidis. “Clients will see me every day; I am always on the job. Personal discussion and communication with me help my clients feel at ease and comfortable; they know they are getting exactly what they want. I am 100% accessible.” First Impressions offers both major home renovations and minor repairs, using the best and newest products on the market. They always have fresh ideas and can personalize your home, adding curb appeal, as well as an inviting, warm interior. Add additional living space, while modernizing the style of your home and improving energy efficiency and home functionality. Home remodeling with First Impressions ensures longevity and increased value of your home. “I specialize in interior and exterior design and building; whatever I design, I can build,” said Panagiotidis. “People are in good hands when they choose me and I always leave my customers satisfied.” To begin the home remodeling process, First Impressions offers a free consultation and Panagiotidis will come to your home, introduce himself and get a feel for what it is that you want done with your home — perhaps a deck outside for entertaining or relaxing, or windows that offer protection from UV rays and eliminate loud noises outdoors and cold drafts. First Impressions only hires the best workers and they have served over 5,000 clients; they claim all have been satisfied with their work. First Impressions is able to raise the community to a higher level, with the beautiful and flawless work that they do for homes and buildings. “I guide all of my clients in the right direction, step by step, and I stand behind my work,” said Panagiotidis. “I love what I do.” -Kristin Cacchioli
