Today’s Sandwich What’s in a sandwich really depends upon the tastes of the person eating it, of course. As you pack your lunch or lunch for your kids, you may find that you are stuck between two pieces of bread and the same old meat. You need something new and different. The truth is that sandwiches are really a blank canvas. In fact, the make of the canvas does not have to be the same day in and day out. Instead of the normal white bread, try a whole wheat wrap or a brioche. The Indian flatbread Roti can completely change the style of your sandwich. Pretzel buns and flavoured buns, such as onion or cheese, can add extra flavour to an otherwise boring sandwich.

Do you have a diet that is grain-free? Replace any bread products with lettuce wraps or cucumber slices. If you are health-conscious, or want to be, fill your sandwich with meat that is “free from” additives and raised “without antibiotics”. When it comes to which meat you would like, try something new. Check out the local deli for an assortment of meats. There may be a twist on something you like that could just take your sandwich to the next level. Porchetta, grilled pork and even duck are different choices to consider. Don’t forget about the protein from the sea including tuna, mackerel and other seafood.

What really makes a sandwich is what you add after the meat and bread. You may be used to a little mustard and some mayo, but why not be sand-venturous and try something new to top off your lunch?

Sundried tomatoes are a salty treat on many sandwiches. They are especially nice if you are creating a masterpiece that will need to be heated. Hold the mayo and grab the tangy aioli. The garlic spread has a wonderful flavour that compliments many meats. Pesto is usually associated with pasta, but it is a nice addition to many other foods. Try a dollop on your roast chicken or turkey sandwich. It just might be what you needed to spice up your lunch. If you prefer something sweeter, add some cranberry sauce or apple slices to your turkey sandwich. Smoked meat sandwiches with a pickle on the side can be so much more. Try a tip from the gourmet delis, add some sauerkraut and cheese to your smoked meat. Speaking of cheese, cheddar is not the only sandwich topper. Feta is a salty treat. Add some crumbled Feta to your sandwich. Why not make it more Mediterranean and add some onions and black olives? The combination is a hit with a salad. Blue cheese is a great sandwich topper, if you don’t mind the blue. Adding some crumbled blue cheese to a roast beef sandwich that has been coated in garlic aioli will have you salivating until lunchtime.

This Month IN HISTORY HISTORY OF CHOCOLATE Some people believe that chocolate is its own food group. After all, any food that spans back about 4000 years should really be recognized as being in a league of its own. Anthropologists found evidence that chocolate was produced in Mexico (Pre-Olmec) as early as 1900 B.C. Mesoamericans were responsible for first cultivating cacao plants in Central America’s rainforests. They roasted the beans and made paste that they mixed with water, vanilla, honey and spices to brew a chocolate drink. The Olmec, Aztec and Mayan civilizations all believed that chocolate was actually an aphrodisiac. The Mayans believed so fully in the fact that chocolate’s aphrodisiac properties were based on spiritual qualities that they worshipped the god of cacao. Only rulers, priests and nobles were allowed to consume chocolate at sacred ceremonies. In the 14th century, the Aztecs found that they were unable to grow the cacao beans in the dry highlands of Mexico. They turned to the Mayans for their supply of cacao beans. Montezuma, the 16th Century Aztec emperor, was believed to have consumed three gallons of chocolate a day to increase his libido. In the 1500s, Spanish explorers went in search of gold and silver in Mexico. Instead, they returned to the motherland with chocolate. Only

the richest in Spain could afford to indulge in chocolate drinks, which were sweetened with cane sugar and cinnamon. Chocolate didn’t spread to other parts of Europe until the 1600s when the daughter of Spanish King Philip III wed French King Louis XIII and brought her beloved chocolate to France. It was then that the popular treat began to spread throughout Europe. Chocolate remained a food for the elite until the 1800s when a Dutch Chemist invented the cacao press and revolutionized how chocolate was made. The change meant that cacao could be easily used as an ingredient in confectionary and production costs were more affordable. This also meant that chocolate was available for the masses and no longer just the elite. A few years later, a British chocolate company J.S. Fry & Sons created the first chocolate bar made from cocoa butter, cocoa powder and sugar.  Fast forward many years later and chocolate is readily available in many forms including milk chocolate and dark chocolate and with many combinations. There are those that bring back some of the ancient ways to enjoy chocolate including chocolate bars with chili. Chocolate is used in many desserts and is even created into culinary art forms. While, many enjoy chocolate sweetened with sugar, there are many types of sugar-free chocolates. They are made with maltose and other sugar substitutes but taste just as sweet. The sugar-free treats come in almost as many forms as their sugared cousins. You can find boxes of sugar-free chocolates as well as truffles, nuts and bars in many specialty shops and grocery stores.

Update On One Of Ontario’s Most Comprehensive Medical Cosmetic Clinics. By Ann Griffith

It’s been a few years since I last interviewed Dr. Philip Kritzinger of York Vein and Laser Clinic. What a difference! Brand new facility, new name, new services! Here are excerpts from the interview. AG: I see that your name has changed to York Laser and MedSpa and that you’re moving to a new location in Aurora. When can we expect the new clinic to be open?

Dr. Kritzinger: We hope to be open at the beginning of March. The new clinic is 6,000 square feet, and it’s beautiful! We’ll be offering all our usual services. York Vein Clinic will be downstairs. The cosmetic clinic will be on the main floor, and we’ve added a day spa on the top floor. Hence the new name: York Laser and MedSpa. AG: Day spa? That sounds exciting! What services will the spa provide? Dr. Kritzinger: We’ll be offering massage and body wraps for women, men, and couples. Our clients will also have access to our sauna and steam room before hitting the shower after their treatment. There will be a variety of relaxing facials for men and women. Our estheticians use the most luxurious skincare products from Europe.

10 | Sponsored Content


AG: Any new esthetic treatments for the ladies?

AG: Is there anything new for skin care products?

Dr. Kritzinger: Yes, our objective is to offer full esthetic services along with the cosmetic procedures we already do like Botox and fillers. People are time poor, so it makes sense to offer a “one-stop shop” to our clients. We added eyelash extensions, eyelash tinting and microblading to our menu. Mani/pedis will be available as add-ons to other procedures. Now women can get everything they need at our clinic, it’s so convenient for them.

Dr. Kritzinger: The science behind cosmeceuticals is always evolving, especially for anti-aging. We recently started carrying a skincare product called Regenica. It uses growth factors extracted from fibroblasts which are the cells that heal the skin and create collagen. Growth factors is one of the best anti-aging ingredients out there. It’s like having healing in a bottle! Then there’s Biologique Recherche. This is a product line from Paris that is unlike anything else. It uses multiple serums, and results are amazing.

AG: That sounds great Dr. Kritzinger. You mentioned microblading, I’ve never heard of that. What is it? Dr. Kritzinger: Microblading is a hot new item. It’s semi-permanent eyebrow tattooing that uses fine strokes that look like real hair. It’s completely different from the old way of tattooing where your eyebrows look unnatural, like a solid line. It lasts two to three years. It’s great for people who have over-tweezed their brows or are tired of having to use an eye brow pencil every day. A.G. Are there any other treatments to improve fine lines and pigmentation? Dr. Kritzinger: Yes, we’ve added two new treatments, The Perfect Peel and microneedling. The Perfect Peel is a medium depth peel. It’s fast and painless. You could have it done during your lunch hour and go back to work, but you will peel in a few days. It does an amazing job at reducing pigment, improving fine lines or acne scars. The other reason we decided to carry it is because we can treat dark skin with it. Microneedling uses fine needles to create tiny punctures in your skin. It triggers your skin to create new collagen and elastin which makes your skin look more youthful. It’s a great anti-aging treatment that can be done in a series. It definitely improves your skins’ texture and firmness and is also great for acne scars. It gives you almost as good a result as laser resurfacing with less downtime and lower cost. AG: There’s a lot of buzz in the media surrounding a new procedure for fat reduction called CoolSculpting , and I understand you now offer this treatment.

AG: Lastly, my friends and I have been hearing about a new treatment for vaginal rejuvenation but are embarrassed to ask. Can you explain a little bit more about it? Dr. Kritzinger: Sure. We’re now offering Femilift. It’s a laser treatment that helps with mild incontinence, but for the majority of women, it’s used for vaginal tightening to enhance sexual gratification. For postmenopausal women, it also improves vaginal dryness and irritation that results from the loss of estrogen. It usually takes three quick sessions once a month or so. They’re almost painless, and there’s no downtime. And the satisfaction rate is extremely high, like 95%. AG: Wow! That sounds fantastic. Anything else you’d like to mention?

Dr. Kritzinger: Yes we do. CoolSculpting is the world’s #1 noninvasive fat reduction procedure. It delivers controlled cooling to kill fat cells under the skin. You can treat a lot of body areas including the tummy, love handles, double chin, arms, thighs. What’s great about it, is that there’s no downtime. Once you have your treatment, whatever fat cells are gone, are gone for good. Most people need between 2-3 treatments depending on the amount of fat they have. If you’re interested, you should book a consultation with one of our estheticians. We also hold regular day time and evening seminars so you can learn more about it.

Dr. Kritzinger: Stay tuned for the grand opening celebration we’ll be hosting for the new building. It will likely be in late spring. If people want more information, they can call us or visit our website. It’s currently undergoing a make-over, but all the information is still there. AG: I’ve always loved your website. Lots of useful information, and no hype. Thank you for talking to me Dr. Kritzinger. I always learn so much, and it never ceases to amaze me that there’s always something new at your clinic. You never stop!

Here’s their contact information: yorklasermedspa.com, (905) 853-3200 .They’re still in the same location they’ve occupied since 2004 at 647 Davis Drive, Newmarket across from the hospital. In a few weeks they will move to 95 Wellington Street East in Aurora. That’s the south side of Wellington in the heritage district near the Go station. Sponsored Content | 11


Discover The Beauty of

Staircase Makeovers Let’s admit it. Staircases aren’t the first thing on the list when it comes to home renovations. In fact, they may not even make the list! Yet, giving your staircase a facelift can make a dramatic statement in your home. Many homes have carpeted stairways leading to the second floor. After a few years, the carpet can become worn and dirty. Even with periodic cleaning, the carpet never springs back to the way it used to look. Some homeowners prefer carpeted staircases. If you prefer carpet, take it to the next level. High grade carpet is best for stairs. Don’t choose one that is too thick. Thicker carpet and underpad can make the stairs unsafe by causing slips and falls. Look for a carpet that is soil resistant. That will help make sure it looks its best for longer. If you are not sure whether you want to do a wooden surface or carpet on the stairs, compromise. Try using a carpet runner. It covers the center of the stairs with carpet while leaving exposed wood on the sides. It’s the best of both worlds. Hardwood staircases have a certain charm. They often become the focal point of a hallway or room. Try giving your wooden staircase a makeover. A classic white and black finish will draw the eye and create a sophisticated atmosphere. Paint the stairs and hand railing black. Cover the spindles with white paint. The combination of the two is very eye catching. If you prefer the rustic look, try white washing your existing wooden staircase. If it looks a little worse for wear, this touch will give it a vintage look and will not require any stripping and re-staining. Dressing up your hardwood staircase doesn’t have to include paint. Give the railing a facelift by changing out the wooden spindles for rod iron. There are some beautiful designs that will change the entire look of the structure. Try something unique and add rope spindles for a beachy look. If you want to see something really different, consider glass panels. If your home’s look is more modern than traditional, consider adding glass panels instead of spindles to your railing. Glass panels come in various shapes and sizes. There are some that are even coloured. Some panels are etched for a more artistic look.

Staircases can be more than just a way to the top. There is a lot of unused space under the stairs. With a little ingenuity and some muscle, the useless space can become great storage. Check out the structure of the staircase and what’s underneath. The space can be used as a closet or for other storage. Consider adding paneling on the exterior of the staircase to create a hidden door leading to the space. For book lovers, this area could be made into a great bookcase.

Top Romance Movies Most people can tell you a list of romantic movies they have seen at least 10 times. It is that flick they turn to when they are in ‘that’ mood. They know the movies so well that they can recite lines and accurately describe certain scenes. Among the list of the most popular romantic movies of all time are three comedies that have something in common, rather someone in common… Meg Ryan. In 1989, Meg Ryan made a name for herself in the popular RomCom,‘When Harry Met Sally’. The endearing movie is about two friends (Ryan and Billy Crystal) that have known each other for years. They fear that starting an intimate relationship would ruin their friendship. Likely one of the most memorable scenes involves Ryan ‘faking’ while in a restaurant with Crystal. A woman at another table quips, “I’ll have what she’s having”. The movie was a huge hit for Director Rob Reiner and writer Nora Ephron. Ephron was nominated for an Oscar for Best Screenplay Written Directly for the Screen. Sleepless in Seattle was the second movie that Nora Ephron worked with Meg Ryan. This time Ephron directed and wrote the screenplay adaptation. The story involves a husband and father (Tom Hanks) that heads to Seattle to try to start over again after his wife dies. Meg Ryan stars as a journalist that hears Hanks’ son on a callin radio show saying his father needs a new wife. The tale

unfolds and Ryan (who is engaged to another man) believes she must follow fate and meet Hanks. The movie saw Ephron nominated again for a screenplay writing Oscar. It was a few years later when Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks teamed up in another RomCom, You’ve Got Mail. It was another Nora Ephron-Meg Ryan-Tom Hanks flick. This story involved two business rivals who despised each other. They meet on the Internet and unwittingly fall in love, not knowing they are business rivals. The movie earned Meg Ryan a Golden Globe nomination. RomComs have long withstood the test of time because they touch on the fairytale feeling of romance. It has been 27 years since Richard Gere and Julia Roberts won the hearts of moviegoers with ‘Pretty Woman’. The movie has been at the top of many lists since it appeared in 1990. Pretty Woman was followed by many other romantic movies including Four Weddings and a Funeral, Bridget Jones’ Diary, Love Actually, The Notebook, Brokeback Mountain, 500 Days of Summer and most recently, La La Land. La La Land united Ryan Gosling and Emma Stone in a romantic musical about a pianist and an actress who fall in love while attempting to navigate their careers in Los Angeles. Emma Stone took home the Oscar for Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role. The movie made more than $150-million.

Designing Homes for Designer Living

Old man winter can be the best playmate, or the worst. Sometimes he is just too much. On those blustery days when no one in the family wants to head outside, what can families do to pass the time? Contrary to what the kids will say, there are plenty of things to do. It just takes a little creativity. Games Night. Most kids may roll their eyes at the thought of having to play a board game. They equate ‘board’ with boredom. With the whole family involved, they will likely find themselves enjoying the game. Make it a game marathon. Ask each family member to get involved choosing the games to play. Try to fit in as many games as possible. For the more competitive types, throw in a few prizes.

Movie Marathon. If games really aren’t your thing, consider a movie marathon. Look through any movie series you may have that are family favourites. Start from the beginning and watch the series back-to-back. Be sure to have an ample supply of popcorn and drinks. Crafts. If your family is a crafty bunch, consider having a craft day. Drag out the glue, construction paper and sparkles and create a few masterpieces. Try a familythemed craft. Design your own family crest and paint it on a piece of cardboard.

something that your family will treasure for years to come.

Imagine your home, totally organized!

Hide and Seek. There are only so many hiding spots inside that anyone can use in a game of Hide and Seek. When in doubt, improvise! Choose an item that has to be hidden somewhere in the house. Take turns hiding it. Before too long the kids will be begging to have a turn to hide it and next thing you know the hours have passed. Write a Story. Some people may say that they are not creative enough to write a story, but that is the fun part. Have your kids drive the story. Each person gets a chance to write a line of the story. It will take the tale in many different directions and will be sure to create a lot of laughter. Name a Tune. It’s always fun to test your knowledge of any subject. Try having a rowdy game of Name a Tune. Designate someone to be the DJ. They can play the first few seconds of a song and the rest of the group has to call out the name of the song or the artist. For a quieter version, have everyone write down their responses. Give each person in the group a turn to be the DJ. Start with playing a song for 10 seconds and then as everyone advances, shorten the amount of playtime. It can be a lot of fun and will change the tune of an otherwise blustery winter day.

Senior BEAT EATING HEALTHY There are some beliefs that the older we get, the more we are able to eat whatever we want whether it’s healthy or not. Nothing could be further from the truth. As we age, our bodies need more TLC than most would expect. Healthy eating can make a big difference. It is not uncommon for many seniors to lose their appetites. This may be caused by loneliness or medications that have been prescribed. Contact your doctor if you believe your medication is affecting your desire to eat. Whatever the reason, it is important to try to eat three healthy meals a day. Staying healthy also requires watching the waistline even after 65 years of age. Maintaining a healthy weight will reduce the risk of developing chronic diseases such as heart disease, high blood pressure and diabetes. If you have a chronic illness then healthy eating can help you manage the effects of the disease and monitor your weight. It is important for seniors to get an ample supply of nutrients like potassium, calcium, vitamin D, minerals and fiber. Eating habits do change the older we get. It’s often because of a lack of appetite as well as a change in the social environment. Those who are cooking for one are less likely to go to the trouble of making a healthy meal. Eating alone can also be unsettling. Make a meal a social event. Plan a get together with a friend, especially one who is also alone. Turning a meal into a social event will help ensure you eat better. When it comes to what you eat, make a few adjustments to some of the foods you consume.   Fruits and vegetables are important parts of any meal. Add sliced fruits and veggies to your menu. If you suffer from arthritis or any other debilitating disease, look for already sliced fruit in the grocery store. If cost is a factor, choose those foods that are easy to eat and better on the wallet. Adding spinach to pasta or an egg dish will add a tasty dose of vitamins. It doesn’t require slicing or dicing and it is easy to use. Skip the salt as much as possible. This is a lesson for any age group. Use spices and herbs to add flavour to your favourite dishes. If you are not a cook and prefer to buy packaged foods, reach for those that have low-sodium. Remember that you can always add your own spices and herbs to dress up your meal.  Thirst can diminish with age. Remind yourself to drink water often unless you have a health issue that dictates otherwise. Make sure to drink about three cups of low fat milk throughout the day. It is important to consume enough calcium and vitamin D. If you cannot tolerate milk, try eating yogurt or other foods high in calcium.

Fighting Cellulite Let’s face it, dimples are cute but only on the face. So many of us have multiple dimples in places we just don't want to discuss. Of course those dimples go by another name, Cellulite. Even the sound of it makes most people cringe. Cellulite is fat deposits that push through connective tissue beneath the skin creating an orange peel look. About 90 percent of women over the age of 40 have some form of cellulite. The dimples appear mostly on the buttocks and thighs. It may come as no surprise that a healthy diet will help you avoid cellulite. Stay away from foods that are high in saturated fats and cholesterol. Choose healthy fats, like nuts, avocados, and olive oil. They have been found to assist with weight loss and in turn, cellulite. Avoid eating foods that are high in sugar. Think twice about having that honey cruller with your morning coffee. Instead eat plenty of fruits and vegetables. Eat whole grains including wholewheat bread and pasta. Cut down on the amount of salt you eat. Switch out the salt shaker for other spices to dress up your food. Drink plenty of water and avoid alcoholic beverages. Get off your cellulite. Fit an exercise routine into your busy schedule. Spending an hour every day shaking that cellulite will burn fat and will help to avoid adding pounds to those thighs. Try cycling, jogging, aerobics and even fast walking to increase your heart rate and reduce fat deposits.

Always check with your physician first before starting any new exercise routines. Likely the most annoying thing about cellulite is the fact that you can never really get rid of it completely. If you are doing your best to fight the good fight and you feel like you are still losing, try heading to the spa. There are a few methods that are used to help reduce the effects of cellulite. RF treatments can be effective in smoothing dimpled areas. The RF device sends radio waves through the skin and into the underlying tissue. Heat is created shrinking the fat cells and tightening the collagen. On the surface, the cellulite is reduced and the skin appears smoother. RF treatments work best on mild to moderate cellulite. Those with severe cellulite may not see the same results. There is no real pain to the treatments and there are virtually no side effects. However, the RF device cannot be used to treat patients that have pacemakers.   Most patients will begin to see some results within a week. It usually takes about six sessions to adequately reduce the cellulite. Some patients may need as many as 10 sessions to break down the fat deposits. The skin will continue tightening for about four to six months. After the sessions are complete, most patients will need to have one or two sessions a year to maintain the effects.

Youth BEAT ENGAGING IN SCIENCE By Samantha Forani, Graduate of McMaster University Science is not for everyone. It can be complicated and confusing, and truthfully, frustrating. However, there are many ways to become engaged in science that may not seem so daunting. And the best part, it encourages physical activity as well as engaging in social activities. Programs such as Rink Watch and Nature Watch are just two examples of great ways to become active in the science community and have fun doing it.   Rink Watch was launched in 2013 by researchers at Wilfred Laurier University and it observes and analyses ice patterns and ice conditions of over 1400 different outdoor skating rinks and ponds in North America. Do you enjoy skating or playing hockey outdoors in the winter? Do you have a rink in your backyard, or a local frozen pond you use? Rink Watch asks for people like you to simply log on, and send information in with regards to the ice conditions that day and for the times when you skate outdoors. Was it too soft that day? Maybe it was only thick enough to skate on at a much later time than the year before. Rink Watch wants to know all of this as it helps them to track climate patterns and ice conditions. This is a great way for

you to take your favourite activity and use it to benefit science. It is also a wonderful social community as they have a Facebook page you can join and meet other people with the same interests. There are also amazing contests and prizes, including prizes donated by the NHL. Now if skating is not your ideal sport, then maybe Nature Watch is the site for you. Nature Watch was first launched in 2000 and is a partnership with Environment Canada and many other organizations. They aim to have the Canadian public help them track any sort of changes in the climate and natural environment. Information collected from Nature Watch is used in many scientific reports and analyses specifically aimed at the three subcategories Ice Watch, Frog Watch, and Plant Watch. Did you perhaps notice that a certain flower in your favourite park bloomed much later than the year before? Or perhaps you noticed an increase in frog population in the pond near your home. Nature Watch wants to hear all about it to put into their latest research.   Nature Watch is also a great motivator to get your friends and family to explore the environment around you. Just as with Rink Watch, gather your friends and go to that frozen pond and play a game of hockey. These sites offer many ways to have fun, but also observe your surroundings and contribute to science. These are great sites for both youth and adults, and motivate you to be active, join a new community, and engage in science!

Edible Valentine’s Marshmallow Pops

By: Carmina Pereira You will need: • marshmallows • white chocolate • sprinkles • paper straws • food coloring • clear plastic bags

This month send us an original photo of

Skating Fun Our contest is open to people of all ages! Win Cineplex Movie Tickets! (2 General Admission Tickets, a Regular Sized Popcorn & Two Drinks). The winning photo will appear in the next issue of The Month Ahead. Email your photo (minimum 1MB file size) to bpianezza@gmail.com no later than February 10th, 2018. Please include your full name, address & phone number. 34 | February 2018 www.TheMonthAhead.ca

What to Do:

1. Cut a small slit in the top of the marshmallows to allow you to insert your straw. 2. Put them in the freezer for about 5-10 minutes. They do not take long to freeze and by doing this, the marshmallow is adhered more securely to the straw. 3. Melt the white chocolate in the microwave on medium heat and stir every 30 seconds. White chocolate burns easier than regular chocolate so watch it closely! Add food coloring if desired. 4. Dip the frozen marshmallows in the white chocolate. Tap the excess white chocolate off. The frozen marshmallow will make the chocolate harden quickly so don’t wait too long before dipping them into the sprinkles.  Let dry. 5. Wrap up pops in individual plastic bags and tie with a pretty ribbon.
