News for the Residents of Hidden Glen

Support Your Community Saturday, September 29, 2012 - 11 am to 6 pm at Cat Hollow Park Our Mission: To provide an opportunity for local nonprofit organizations and individual volunteers to raise funds that will serve our community. Over 5,000 participants will come out to enjoy the festivities and support local nonprofits. 18th Annual Hairy Man Festival - Saturday, September 29th     Each year, the festival raises about $40,000 in food and cash donations to help local children and families in need. The net proceeds from the Hairy Man Festival are donated to local food banks (Round Rock Serving Center and St. Vincent de Paul) as well as multiple local nonprofit organizations. Proceeds will also benefit CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates). The mission of CASA is to be a voice for abused or neglected children through the power of volunteer advocacy and changes in the child protection system.  CASA volunteers are appointed by judges to watch over and speak up for abused and neglected children.   For many abused children, their CASA volunteer is the one constant in their lives - and often the one adult who cares only for them. www.texascasa.org.     The family fun-centered event raises money for many local charities, and offers a full day of food, arts & crafts shopping gallery, children’s activities, and live entertainment all day. Admission to the festival is two non-perishable food items or $2 per person to go to local food banks. This event is sponsored by The Brushy Creek Women’s Association. The festival is located at Cat Hollow Park off of RM 620 at 8600 O’Connor Drive.   For more information please visit www.HairyManFestival.org or www.BrushyCreekWomen.org Copyright © 2012 Peel, Inc.

HIDDEN GLEN HAPPENINGS

LOWERING YOUR CHOLESTEROL By Concentra Urgent Care

September is Cholesterol Awareness Month. This is conveniently scheduled before a season known for overeating. Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukah, and the New Year all fall after September. Each of these events include numerous hours spent planning and preparing foods such as candy, pies, cookies, stuffing, and mashed potatoes with gravy. Not only do the fall months bring holiday foods, the changing of the seasons to the cooler fall months make it easier to pack on pounds that can be conveniently hidden under bulky winter clothing. Start by knowing your numbers, so you can be informed and prepared. People with numbers in the unfavorable range should try to do as much as possible to lower their total cholesterol, LDL, and triglycerides and to raise their HDL. • For adults, 30 minutes of moderate physical activity daily and for those aged 6-17, at least one hour of physical activity each day. • Maintain a healthy weight - Moderately active females need about 2,000 calories a day and moderately active males need about 2,400 to maintain a healthy weight. If you are trying to lose weight, decrease this number by roughly 500 calories per day. • Don't smoke. • Eat foods high in fiber and nutrients and low in saturated fat and cholesterol. So what can you eat? Changing your diet to lower your cholesterol isn’t hard; incorporating a few new, relatively painless habits into your routine can make a big difference. As long as your numbers aren’t in the unfavorable range, you don’t necessarily have to swear off cheeseburgers and French fries forever, but they shouldn’t be part of your regular diet. Here are some quick and easy cooking tips that will help you lower the cholesterol in your food: • Use lean cuts of meat with little visible fat. For beef, use the round, chuck, sirloin, or loin; for pork, use the tenderloin or loin chop; for

lamb, use cuts from the leg, arm, and loin. • Buy “choice” or “select” grades, which have less fat than “prime” does. Use lean or extra lean ground beef. • Broil rather than pan-fry your hamburger, lamb chops, pork chops, and steak. Place meat on a wire rack to allow fat to drain when cooking. Instead of basting with drippings, keep meat moist with wine, fruit juices, or an acceptable oil-based marinade. • Prepare stews, boiled meat, and soup stock in advance, refrigerate overnight, then remove the hardened fat from the top. • Remove skin from chicken and turkey before cooking or eating. • Limit processed meats like sausage, bologna, salami, and hot dogs. They tend to be high in calories, saturated fat, and sodium. • Limit organ meats like liver, sweetbreads, kidney, and brains, which are very high in cholesterol. • Eat broiled, baked, grilled, or boiled seafood, which is lower in total fat and saturated fat than most meat and poultry. • Cook vegetables in a little vegetable oil and add herbs instead of butter. • Make cream sauces, soups, mashed potatoes, and scalloped potatoes with low-fat or non-fat milk. • Use canola, safflower, sunflower, soybean, or olive oil instead of butter, lard, and shortening. • Substitute egg whites for whole eggs. The cholesterol in eggs comes from the yolks. • Replace the oil in muffins, cookies, and cakes with pureed fruits or veggies. • Replace the breadcrumbs in your meatloaf with uncooked oatmeal. • Use brown rice instead of white rice, and try whole-grain pasta. With these diet and lifestyle changes your cholesterol will decrease, allowing your blood to flow freely through your arteries, bathing your heart and brain in oxygen.
