early for Cincinnati Health & Life staff. While many of our friends and families are spending their remaining vacation days at tropical destinations, we’re home dreaming of festive tunes and frocks, sumptuous feasts and gifts galore for our nearest and dearest. Don’t get me wrong: I’m not complaining. After all, home is where the heart is, and it’s where everyone returns to enjoy all of December’s gift-giving celebrations. I fondly recall the days growing up with my large Italian family during this time of year—the aroma of a home-cooked meal embraced everyone who walked through the doors. That feeling was rivaled only by an actual hug from a visiting friend or relative. Some things never change. Knowing that home is the hub of family festivities, we provide some ways to touch everyone’s heart. Looking to freshen your home décor before the holidays? Beginning on page 26, we show you how to use stripes to enliven a room. On page 32, we present six tempting and easy-to-prepare smoothies that are sure to hit the spot (and soul) and deliver a nutritious punch. Then on page 48, learn about the healing powers of grapefruit. ’Tis the height of the grapefruit season, when they are ripe and contain the most antioxidants—take one bite and you’ll be singing its praises. Of course, if your preference is a holiday getaway, read our story about the Italian island of Capri—known as the world’s first resort—on page 46. It’s a treat for the eyes and spirit. All of us at Cincinnati Health & Life wish you a wonderful holiday season!

WHAT DOES ART TASTE LIKE? How often do the culinary and visual arts come together in any major way? Hardly ever, until a group of enterprising volunteers at the Contemporary Arts Center got together to brainstorm the book Cuisine, Art, Cocktails: Celebrating Contemporary Cincinnati. The plan was to enlist some of the city’s most gifted chefs, sommeliers and mixologists to offer up recipes inspired by their own response to particular pieces by artists featured at the CAC. The Center’s Curator of Education, Jaime L.M. Thompson, says, “When Maria Kalomenidou, my co-creator and the book’s designer, and our team of docents first dreamed up this project we expected around 10–15 recipes at most. But as soon as we began to spread the word and gauge interest in the project, local chefs pledged to help us by the droves. They were so excited about our concept—to celebrate Cincinnati, the culinary arts and the cutting-edge exhibitions of the Contemporary Arts Center.” The project was created as a way to support the CAC’s education programs, and all funds raised by its sales will go toward that worthy goal. But the book also stands as a striking, original artistic statement on its own merits. After all, where else are you likely to catch David Cook (Daveed’s, Daveed’s Next Restaurant, Daveed’s Catering) coming up with a dessert dish in response to a Robert Mapplethorpe photograph, or Nathan Sheatzley, executive chef at the Cincinnatian Hotel and Palace Restaurant, building a dish based around beets to complement the colors of a Pat Steir silkscreen piece? Speaking for herself and her co-creator, Thompson says, “Neither of us would have imagined that an idea dreamed up by our docent council would grow to something of this scale. We both could not be prouder.”

SEEING RED The first rule when it comes to baseball fandom is that there’s no such thing as too much. The deeper you dive into it, the more fun you can have. And that goes double if you’re talking about Cincinnati Reds fans. So don’t miss the opportunity to get an off-season dose of the Reds by taking a VIP Major League Clubhouse Tour, offered Saturdays at 12:30 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. through March 18. This 90-minute guided exploration of Great American Ball Park takes you behind the scenes to see the Reds Clubhouse, the Visitors Clubhouse, the field-level media room, Reds Radio and television broadcast booths, batting tunnels and dugouts. You can even take in the view from the warning track behind home plate. As you go, learn about the ballpark and the history of the Reds. If all that leaves you still wanting more, each tour ticket includes admission to the Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame and Museum, baseball’s largest team Hall of Fame, which is adjacent to the ballpark. Tours are popular and sell out, so to avoid disappointment purchase tickets in advance from the museum.

Close encounters of the SEAHORSE kind

The seahorse is one of the ocean’s cutest characters. Who can resist a fish that looks like a horse, mates for life, and prefers to swim linked tail-to-tail with a partner? You’ll be hooked when you visit the Newport Aquarium’s newest addition, Seahorses: Unbridled Fun. This interactive exhibit lets you discover 10 species of seahorse, plus sea dragons, trumpetfish, shrimpfish and pipefish. Highlights include (but are not limited to) the Weedy Sea Dragons, Australian natives that are among the rarest creatures in the aquarium, and the Ribboned Sea Dragons, which look like seaweed and hang out in groups to enhance their disguise. You can get up close to the seahorses and their friends in person, and closer still via the giant video screen that magnifies the fish in their habitat. Stand next to the larger-than-life seahorse sculptures to see all the features that make these creatures so unique. Digital seahorse games and art round out the experience.

20 Seasons To celebrate As artistic director and CEO, Victoria Morgan has been on point—figuratively, not literally—for the Cincinnati Ballet for 20 years this season. In the maledominated world of ballet directors and choreographers, Morgan has led the Cincinnati Ballet to exponential growth, placing the company in its strongest position ever, both financially and artistically. That’s certainly something to celebrate! The Cincinnati Ballet is doing just that all season long, with groundbreaking cultural exchanges and artistic collaborations, as well as traditional ballet performances, including King Arthur’s Camelot, with original choreography by Victoria Morgan.

ROCKING THE POPS What do you get when you combine the sheer sonic power and grand symphonic sweep of an orchestra with the emotional intensity of one of rock’s most celebrated singer-songwriters? Well, if you’re lucky enough to turn up at the Taft Theatre at 7 p.m. on January 8, you’ll get a once-in-a-lifetime collaboration between Melissa Etheridge and the Cincinnati Pops. For nearly three decades, Etheridge has been releasing infectious tunes that range from all-out rockers to tender ballads, blending the raw, raging energy of rock ’n’ roll with the intimate lyrical approach of an acoustic-guitarstrumming balladeer. She also struck some major blows in women’s uphill battle for equality in the rock world. Along the way, Etheridge crafted huge hits like “I’m the Only One,” “Come To My Window,” “If I Wanted To,” and more; unleashed a long string of Platinum-selling albums; earned a pair of Grammy awards, and even snagged an Oscar for Best Original Song. As a cancer survivor and LGBT activist, she’s been as inspiring personally as she has been with her music. Now imagine Etheridge’s unstoppable artistic force given an extra orchestral boost by the Cincinnati Pops, as their strong but sophisticated approach adds a symphonic level of drama to her already arresting tunes. Come to think of it, if you show up at the aforementioned time, you won’t have to do any imagining at all.

This wasn’t just a stomach cramp. This was Greg’s incredible fourth-quarter comeback being thwarted by a ruptured appendix.

You’re more than just a patient, and we’re more than just an ER. After a rocky first half, the Cobras were finally making some headway on the court. At least it seemed that way until the dull ache in Greg’s stomach turned into sharp, shooting pains he could no longer ignore. That’s when he turned to our emergency care team. The shorter wait times and electronic medical records that traveled with Greg helped him spend less time in the lobby and more time getting the care he needed for his ruptured appendix. And with an award-winning nursing staff and 24/7 specially trained physicians, Greg was able to make another amazing comeback.

PLANNING & PARTNERSHIP TRIHEALTH’S MIDWIVES PROVIDE SUPPORT FOR POSITIVE OUTCOMES.

Paula Morelli, a Certified Nurse Midwife with TriHealth Nurse Midwives, supports mom-to-be Amanda Ison.

Birth plans are one way we partner with the women in our care, because each woman has her own vision of how she wants her labor and birth to progress.” —Paula Morelli, CNM “Our philosophy is that pregnancy, labor and birth are natural and normal processes,” says Paula Morelli, CNM (Certified Nurse Midwife) with TriHealth Nurse Midwives, “and we approach them as such.” It’s an important philosophy, because having a baby can be an intimidating proposition. But through partnering with a midwife, women and their loved ones can find peace of mind throughout the pregnancy and birthing process. Paula and the other CNMs at Good Samaritan work closely with patients and their families to ensure the best possible outcomes through detailed communication and birth plans—but they also have to be prepared to deal with the unexpected. “Birth plans are one of the ways in which we partner with the women in our care, because each woman has her own ideas and vision of how she wants her labor and birth to progress,” Paula says. “And we try to facilitate that in the best way possible. But we also embrace the fact that things are sometimes beyond our control. The Certified Nurse Midwives at TriHealth work collaboratively with TriHealth obstetricians when medically necessary to ensure the safety of the patient and her baby.” This facilitation and support aren’t limited to the planning that takes place prior to birth. The midwives are available throughout a patient’s pregnancy, and at Good Samaritan, that means going the extra mile. “We have a nurse midwife on call 24/7, and we’re there from a woman’s admission through birth,” Paula says. Studies show that the constant presence of a labor-assisting professional increases patient satisfaction and leads to more positive outcomes. “We’re very fortunate at TriHealth to have a CNM on call,” Paula says, “and it’s a commitment on our part. We recognize how important it is.”

Midwife Myths & Facts There are a lot of misunderstandings about midwives and what they do. Let’s dispel some of those: • Midwives only assist with at-home births. In 2014, nationally only 2.7 percent of midwife-attended births occurred in homes. The vast majority­—94.2 percent— occurred in a hospital or medical center. • Midwives can’t prescribe medications or order tests. Midwives are licensed health care providers with prescriptive authority. • Midwives have no formal medical education. CNMs are advanced practice nurses with an RN license and Masters or PhD in advanced practice nursing. Midwives maintain state licensure, and national and hospital credentialing. • Midwives are just involved in the moment of birth. Midwives are identified as primary care providers, and they work with women of all ages throughout their lives.

This philosophy of support goes beyond mother and child to encompass the entire family. “Whatever that ‘family’ looks like, we encourage participation and help the family support the patient—during labor and also during the postpartum period,” Paula says. One important segment of the postpartum period that TriHealth recognizes as especially critical is the first couple of hours following birth. That’s why TriHealth’s policy of kangaroo care is especially important. “The woman has grown and birthed this baby, and she deserves to hold her baby and develop a bond,” Paula says. “That first couple of hours out in the world is a critical time, so TriHealth has instituted a policy of

skin-to-skin contact for at least one hour after birth.” But prior to birth, there’s much to discuss and plan. Midwives work with women throughout their lives, not just during pregnancy, and it’s a true partnership. “How can we help a woman deal with whatever her situation is?” Paula asks. “I don’t tell them what to do; I want to partner with her and let her know what her options are. I truly love what I do and feel very fortunate that our practice is set up as it is.” Beginning in February 2017, TriHealth will extend midwifery services to Bethesda North Hospital through a new practice location in Liberty Township.

A Woman’s Resolution for Health This year, commit to screenings that could save your life. 18

WINTER 2017 | triHEALTH.cOM

CIN.W16.IGH_V10_MR.indd 18

11/21/16 3:50 PM


Screenings by the Numbers A quick rundown of the health screenings for women over 40 and over 50: Dr. Madiha Kahn (right) and Jacinda Jackman, Front Office Specialist, of TriHealth Associates.

Over 40 • Annual BP check, breast exam and pelvic exam • Annual mammogram

We’ve all played the New Year’s Resolution game. By the time the ball drops above Times Square, we’ve made lofty plans and promises—but these often fall by the wayside and we’re left right where we started. For 2017, you can change this frustrating pattern. Make a commitment to have the tests and screenings that can help you prevent disease or identify it early enough so that treatment will be effective. “Health care screenings allow early detection of premalignant lesions or early stage disease,” says Madiha Khan, M.D., an Ob-Gyn with TriHealth Associates. “Diagnosis and treatment of early-stage disease provide a better prognosis and higher survival rates.” So, early detection is critical, but what screenings are most important? One of the most crucial is the colonoscopy. “Colon cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death in the U.S., and it has been suggested that the initiation of colorectal cancer screening has decreased the death rate by 53 percent,” Dr. Khan says. “There are multiple different methods to screen for colorectal cancer, and it’s important to have a discussion with your doctor to decide which is best for you. Colonoscopy is considered the gold standard screening test, and it is the most widely used.” Equally critical to diagnosing problems

before they become larger issues is the mammogram. In the U.S., a woman’s lifetime risk for developing breast cancer is a bit less than 15 percent, and the majority of breast cancers are detected through mammograms. “In women 40 and older, mammography is the mainstay screening method, and studies have shown that it’s the only screening modality that has decreased breast cancer–related mortality,” Dr. Khan says. Also, a woman should make a point to observe the schedule for cervical cancer screening, which has significantly decreased the incidence and mortality rate from cervical cancer. “Since the initiation of Pap smears in the 1950s, the incidence of cervical cancer has decreased by 70 percent,” Dr. Khan says. “Pap smears allow for the detection and treatment of precancerous and cancerous lesions at an earlier stage.” As for other resolutions, Dr. Khan has some advice: “I think it’s best to establish a game plan or timeline on how you plan on achieving it. For example, if your goal is to lose 30 pounds in the next year, break it up into losing five pounds every two months. And creating a team atmosphere will help with motivation, involving your spouse, family, friends or even your doctor as your coach!”

• Cervical cancer screening (Pap smear): cervical cytology every three years or cytology with HPV testing every five years • Diabetes testing beginning at 45 done at three-year intervals  • Cholesterol/lipid screening beginning at 45 and done at five-year intervals • Immunizations: TDAP every 10 years and flu vaccine annually 

Over 50 • Colorectal cancer screening (Colonoscopy every 10 years, flexible sigmoidoscopy every five years, barium enema every five years) • Bone mineral density screening (DEXA scan) beginning at 65 and done at one- to 15-year intervals based on results • Thyroid screening (TSH level) beginning at 65 and done every five years  • Urinalysis every year beginning at 65  • Immunizations: Herpes Zoster at 60, Pneumococcal at 65

A REENERGIZED REFLECTION HOW A FACELIFT HELPED ONE PATIENT FEEL LIKE HERSELF AGAIN. 20

12/5/16 2:12 PM


Kevin Shumrick, M.D., who has been practicing in Cincinnati for 25-plus years, consults with a new patient.

Aging is, of course, a natural process— one we embrace as a gift and a privilege. Still, as we grow older, changes in physical appearance can dampen the spirit. When you feel energetic and happy, but your friends wonder whether you’re getting enough sleep because you look tired, or they ask what’s wrong because you look angry, it’s easy to get discouraged. That’s how 69-year-old Mary felt. “I just wanted to look more like myself again,” she says. “Not to look drawn or tight, but to have some of the excess skin gone.” For help, she turned to the TriHealth Cosmetic Center and Kevin Shumrick, M.D., who is board certified in plastic and reconstructive surgery, and in treating disorders of the ears, nose and throat. “I had heard Dr. Shumrick’s name a number of times,” says Mary. “A friend of mine had some reconstructive surgery due to cancer, and he did a fabulous job for her.” Dr. Shumrick, who has been practicing in the Cincinnati area for more than 25 years and with TriHealth for the past 10, believes the TriHealth Cosmetic Center stands out among its peers. “We come at plastic surgery from a medical perspective,” he says. “We really focus on the patient and what’s best for her or for him.” “Some plastic surgery centers actually have a ‘closer’ who has a sales quota to meet,” he explains. “If you go into a center like that, you’re getting a procedure.” At TriHealth, physicians strive to understand what each patient needs, and whether the procedure being considered is really going to benefit them. “We aren’t trying to talk people into surgery,” says Dr. Shumrick. “We look at what we can do for an individual patient that’s going to give the best result.” TriHealth Cosmetic Center’s board-certified physicians offer proven treatments tailored to each patient’s lifestyle and skin. Because of their specialized training, Cosmetic Center physicians have the expertise and experience to safely and

That’s always what we strive for – to give a look that’s natural, but with some definite improvements. We minimize the surgical footprints.” –Kevin Shumrick, M.D. effectively perform advanced cosmetic procedures. In addition to facelifts and dermal fillers to counteract aging and sun damage, the Cosmetic Center offers an extensive array of care, including treatment of acne, stretch marks, rosacea, and spider and varicose veins. Other services include ear reshaping, nose reshaping (rhinoplasty) and hair removal. Mary’s facelift was tailored to address her concerns, which included sagging skin around her mouth, under her chin, and in the jowl area. “Mary wanted to look a little fresher,” says Dr. Shumrick. “She wanted to improve things but not look like she’d had surgery. And that’s always what we strive for—to give a look that’s natural, but with some definite improvements. That surgical look you sometimes see

defeats the whole purpose. We minimize the surgical footprints.” Mary was more than happy with the results of her procedure. “It wasn’t too much,” she says. “Dr. Shumrick did exactly what I wanted, and it was just perfect for me.” Would she recommend him to friends? “I wouldn’t hesitate to refer anybody to him. He’s an excellent doctor and a very nice man. He’s concerned about helping people.” Judging from the reactions of Mary’s friends, Dr. Shumrick succeeded in creating improvements that didn’t scream surgery. “After the procedure,” she says, “I saw a friend I hadn’t seen in a month, and the first thing she said was, ‘Mary, you’ve lost some weight.’ And I thought, ‘Perfect. She didn’t notice a thing.’”

The mission throughout TriHealth—and our culture—is to help the members in the community to live healthier lives. Everyone on the staff is very involved and genuinely cares about our clients and their success.” —Kristen DeAngelis, R.D.N. All she wanted was to fit comfortably in an airplane seat. Since joining the TriHealth Fitness & Health Pavilion’s HealthOne program in May, Lisa Marshall, of Mason, has reached that goal—and so many others. She has lost 58 pounds. She has cut daytime insulin use by two-thirds and her nighttime dose by more than half. Long-standing joint and muscle pain are gone. Marshall says even her vision has improved: “I was showing signs of glaucoma. Last month, my doctor saw major improvements in my eye health.” Teresa Butt, of Cincinnati, has enjoyed the Pavilion’s swimming and exercise facilities for 20 years. Along the way, she found that age changes the body in many ways. She, too, decided to try the HealthOne program in May, and has since met her short-term goal of losing 31 pounds. In addition, she has experienced relief from the pain of osteoarthritis, and improvements in cholesterol and blood pressure. Butt loves

the support network the program provides, and being able to work with a nutritionist. “I thought I was eating healthy,” she says, “but I didn’t look at things like salad dressing, with so many calories.” According to Kristen DeAngelis, R.D.N., several Pavilion programs focus on weight loss, but there are also programs offered for cancer wellness, musculoskeletal pain, joint pain and inflammation, and balance. The goals are about improving overall health, reducing risk factors for chronic preventable disease, and giving members the quality of life they deserve. DeAngelis explains: “That’s why we offer holistic, integrated services that include fitness and nutrition classes, athletic and personal training, cooking demonstrations, acupuncture and spa services.” Plus, says DeAngelis, the more often patients experience community involvement and receive encouragement from Pavilion staff and fellow members, the easier it

will be to make the changes to everyday behaviors that are essential for long-term weight loss. “The mission throughout TriHealth—and our culture—is to help the members in the community to live healthier lives,” she says. “Everyone on the staff is very involved and genuinely cares about our clients and their success.” DeAngelis sees her role as dietitian, health coach and counselor, working hard to empower each individual through the health programs offered as well as individual nutrition consults. “When I meet a new patient,” she says, “I listen. What is his or her goal? What have they tried? What worked and what didn’t? I stress the importance of individualizing plans based on the participant’s lifestyle, and that we’ll work together to discover the best path for them.” Each week, participants leave with short-term goals and a strategic plan that both feed into their larger goal of improved health outcomes. A short-term goal might be a dietary strategy like eating breakfast daily or drinking 1 cup of water before having coffee, or it could relate to physical activity or stress reduction. DeAngelis helps each individual decide when, where and how they will effectively and realistically be able to achieve their weekly goals. Paying attention to these important details helps people incorporate new food regimens and activities into their daily routine. “This program has a personal touch,” says Butt. “You become part of a community. Our group uses a Facebook page to encourage each other. It’s not just about weight loss, it’s about getting healthy and feeling good about ourselves.” Marshall agrees: “This is the best thing I’ve ever done for myself. Everyone on the staff helps keep me motivated. I love the social network and the chance to meet people. Someone in the program or on staff will say, ‘You’re looking good,’ and I just want to work harder.” Butt has made big changes in how she eats. “I take 15 to 20 seconds to think about the food I’m going to eat. Is it really good for me? At restaurants, I ask questions about sauces and calories.” Butt and Marshall both were nervous about what would happen when their HealthOne program ended. But they feel confident in the everyday life changes they’ve made—and know that they can continue working at the Pavilion and enjoying their path to better health.

rose hip ‘affogato’ with crumbled ‘amaretti’ Rose hips are a true superfood packed with antiinflammatory and antioxidant compounds. If you can’t find rose hip powder in your local supermarket or health food store, you can always purchase it online. FOR THE ‘AMARETTI’ n

4–5 soft dates, pitted 3¼ oz./¾ cup ground almonds or almond flour

n

2 oz./¼ cup almond milk

n

FOR THE ROSE HIP SOUP n  1½ oz./¼ cup rose hip powder n  1 Tb. arrowroot or potato starch n

17 fl. oz./2 cups water

n

3 Tbs. pure maple syrup

TO SERVE n Vanilla ice cream

Directions Preheat oven to 350°F and line a baking tray with parchment paper. Place all of the ingredients for the date ‘amaretti’ in a food processor and pulse until mixed. Alternatively, put the dates in a bowl and mash them with a fork until they form a paste. Add the rest of the ingredients and mix until well combined. Taste and adjust the sweetness to your liking by adding more dates if necessary. Transfer to a piping bag and pipe into about ¾-inch diameter rounds, like amaretti biscuits (Italian macaroons). Bake for about 10 minutes or until golden. Set aside to cool while you prepare the rose hip soup. Put the rose hip powder in a saucepan along with the arrowroot and water. Bring to a boil, whisking continuously to prevent lumps from forming. Reduce the heat, whisk in the maple syrup and simmer for about 5 minutes, or until a smooth syrup forms, before removing from the heat. Strain it through a fine-mesh sieve to get it completely smooth. To assemble, spoon a scoop of vanilla ice cream into the base of two medium-sized glass jars or bowls, or in a large jar (as featured in the photo), and pour over the rose hip soup. Finish with a sprinkling of crumbled ‘amaretti’ and some extra ice cream on top for the sweettoothed. Serve straight away before it comes running down the glass jar.

{ financial balance }

Time to fix the mix?

When the assets in your investment portfolio get out of whack, rebalancing can put them right—and protect your future.

“Don’t put all your eggs in one basket,” an old saying warns

us, and there’s true wisdom there. If your balanced investment portfolio becomes too heavily concentrated in the “basket” of stocks and not enough in bonds—or vice versa—you could be putting your nest egg at greater risk than you intend. Rebalancing can help. It means redistributing funds among asset classes to get back to your intended target asset allocation—the percentages of invested funds placed in categories such as stocks, bonds, money-market funds or cash. Think of rebalancing as returning your portfolio to the mix of investments you chose based on your risk tolerance and life priorities. “Research shows that over five years or more, if you’ve rebalanced your portfolio at least once a year you’ll be better off,” says Carol Hoffman, a certified financial planner and Principal at Clear Perspectives Financial Planning in Cincinnati. Suppose that two years ago, planning your investment strategy, you decided to put 60 percent of your funds in stocks and 40 percent in bonds. Then stocks went crazy. Now you find that because of the growth in the shares of stock you own, you have 64 percent of your money in stocks and just 36 percent in bonds. That would be fine if stocks always went up, or if stocks were always a better bet than bonds. But we know those things aren’t true. And if stocks now happen to crash downward, your 64 percent puts you in greater danger than the old mix—the one you chose—would have. “When the stock market is up, that’s right when you want to sell,” says Hoffman. “But that’s hard for people. It’s emotionally difficult because everyone loves winning, so they want to hang onto whatever’s winning. But it’s well proven that you get the best return for your portfolio over the long term by rebalancing.” In this case, rebalancing means selling a portion of your stocks and buying more bonds to get the portfolio back to your 38

desired balance. Rebalancing forces you to buy assets that have recently underperformed and sell those that have recently done well. In other words, it ensures that you follow the old investing adage: “Buy low; sell high.” Rebalancing helps you take advantage of the market’s tendency to overshoot on both the downside and the upside. Be aware of any transaction costs when you look to rebalance, and figure those into your decision. If you shift funds too often, it could cost more than the adjustments would be worth. Fortunately, some investment firms—especially with retirement accounts—offer free automatic rebalancing at specified intervals. There is also software that triggers a rebalance if a certain degree of change—say, 5 percent up or down—takes place in the percentage share allocated to an asset class. “With a 401k or 403b plan, if you rebalance once a year typically there is no cost,” says Hoffman. “But if you do it more frequently, there could be fees.” If your assets are in other investment vehicles, such as an IRA, Hoffman advises that you ask about fees before you rebalance. In addition, there could be tax consequences to consider. How often should you adjust your investment mix? For the typical investor in normal market conditions, annual rebalancing is likely very efficient. But keep in mind that in highly volatile market conditions you may want to rebalance more frequently. Of course, rebalancing isn’t magic. By reducing your stock holdings from that 64 percent to 60 percent, you could limit your gains if stocks continue upward. But long-term planning remains your best guide. No one can be consistently successful at timing markets, but with a disciplined approach you can help reduce your overall portfolio risk—and hopefully enhance returns. —Sheryl Nance-Nash

The Community Runs for

A good cause More than 1,000 people turned out to support Hospice of Cincinnati at the Annual Hike for Hospice and TriHealth 5K Run held on October 1 at Summit Park in Blue Ash. Many people came to walk in memory of their loved ones who passed away in Hospice of Cincinnati’s care while others supported the cause by running at the beautiful Summit Park for the TriHealth 5K. Supporters stayed to receive their awards for running in the 5K. They enjoyed music and food and gathered with friends and family to support a great cause. All proceeds from the event helped Hospice of Cincinnati continue their mission to provide the best possible, most meaningful end-of-life experience for all who need care and support in our community.

Tickets: from $30. For the full plot, head to www.cincinnatiarts.org/events/detail/ something-rotten.

CAPRI La dolce vita was practically invented on this beautiful Italian isle, famous as the world’s oldest resort. by Rita Guarna

Opposite: A rock formation creates a natural arch over the sea. This page, left: Uber-fresh pasta al frutti di mare—that is, with “fruit of the sea”; right: The Hotel Caesar Augustus stands 1,000 feet above the Bay of Naples, and guests enjoy a nightly display as the glitter of the Milky Way is reflected on the water below.

In Capri, the world’s first resort, no one seems to be in a rush to get anywhere. But this isn’t necessarily a lazy man’s trip either: Because Capri is small and steep (four miles long and two miles wide) with so few roads, it’s a walker’s island (cheating is allowed—you can rent a Vespa to explore some byways). In fact, Capri is a geological castoff from the peninsula of Sorrento in the southern part of the Bay of Naples. Limestone cliffs separate the two main towns: laid-back Anacapri and the more populated Capri (the town) in the east. Anacapri boasts Monte Solaro, 1,900 feet high, while Monte Tiberio, its somewhat shorter sibling, is topped by the ruins of the Emperor Tiberius’ palace, Villa Jovis. While a few main streets connect key points, most streets are really narrow twisting lanes or paved paths that crisscross what is still a surprisingly wild, rocky island, home to goats and lizards, maritime pines and oleander. (The word Capri comes from the Greek word kapros, meaning wild boar—but I didn’t encounter those!) No visit to Capri would be complete without swimming in the sea (and seeing the Blue Grotto—yes, it’s a big tourist attraction, but worth visiting if only once). Banish notions of islands you may have visited in the Caribbean: Beautiful beaches there ain’t—most of these tend toward small and pebbly, and the few sandy swaths you’ll find are awash with people and umbrellas. But what they lack in sand they more than make up for in scenery and scenes. La Fontelina on the southern coast

is one of the best lidos, or beach clubs, with a good restaurant tucked into the rocks that serves pasta and seafood galore. And it sells day passes. You can slip into the water from the rocks and have a lemon granita waiting after your swim. If images of Poseidon and Neptune don’t make you feel buoyant, then the salinity of the water certainly will. (Nowhere have I felt more aloft, except perhaps in the Dead Sea.) It seems you can float forever. Back on terra firma, it’s a toss-up as to what will captivate you more: heartstopping views of the sea and the three iconic Faraglioni rocks—named Stella, Mezzo and Scopolo—or the beautiful people whose comings and goings make the dock a sort of catwalk. Of course, it can’t be reached by taxi. You either go by private boat or walk down a very steep hillside. When it’s time for dinner, you will be tempted to overindulge, no doubt scarfing down plates of homemade pastas, just-caught fish and bowls of fresh figs and washing it all down with bottles of fine wine. After all, this is southern Italy, where everyone has some manner of garden growing zucchini, tomatoes and potatoes, not to mention olive trees, lemon trees and even cactus trees—the kind that grow prickly pears (delicious— but swallow, don’t chew, the seeds). The Caprese grow their own herbs, fruits and vegetables. They buy seafood directly from the fishermen and make pasta at the kitchen table. It doesn’t get fresher than this. Whether you eat at La Terrazza di Lucullo (try the legendary ravioli capresi)

or one of several nearby ristoranti, you won’t be disappointed. And don’t skip the dolce. While many think of cannoli as the quintessential Italian dessert, I recommend the not-too-sweet sfogliatella, a Neapolitan specialty consisting of crispy pastry crust filled with creamy ricotta. It’s best when it’s eaten warm from the oven. Still, no one will look askance if you decide to eat only the famous Caprese salad—vine-ripened tomato, basil and mozzarella drizzled with extra virgin olive oil—and a glass of prosecco. There’s something about the cool bite of the bubbles and the gentle breezes in an open-air café that soothes the soul. And, of course, the people-watching is firstrate too. You’ll see two types of gente on Capri: typical tourists whose gaudy clothing makes you wince; and everyone else—young and old alike—clad in their Sunday best. That’s one reason why you simply cannot miss taking a passeggiata, or nocturnal stroll. This daily rite is practiced all over Italy, but here in Capri partaking of it is akin to having front-row seats to the latest runway show in Milan. No sensible shoes for these fashionistas—cobblestone streets, be damned. Only strappy, high-heel sandals will do for the women. And as with any great parade, you’ve got to be both spectator and participant in order to experience it fully. Luckily, it’s not a once-in-a-blue-moon event but a nightly spectacle. Your reward: At the end of the night, you too will be an espressosipping bella donna or gentil’uomo. What could be better? Now that’s amore. cincinnati HEALTH & LIFE | WINTER 2017

did you know? Named for their tendency to grow in clusters like grapes, these juicy gems were first discovered in the West Indies in the early 1700s. A member of the citrus family, they’re believed to be the result of a natural crossbreeding between an orange and a pomelo. We can thank the Spanish for introducing grapefruit to Florida in the 1820s, though they grew grapefruit trees purely for their beauty, turned off by the fruit’s slightly bitter taste. Today the United States is the world’s top grapefruit producer, with about 75 percent of our country’s supply grown in Florida. You can find the fruit in three main varieties, categorized by the color of their flesh: white, pink/red and star ruby/rio red.

Step aside, OJ: Grapefruit can also help ward off nasty winter colds with its high vitamin C content (just one half of a grapefruit contains 80 percent of your recommended daily value). The fruit is also a good source of vitamin A, vitamin B6, potassium, thiamin and niacin, and contains pectin, a form of soluble fiber that may lower cholesterol. But not all grapefruit are created equal: The pink and red varieties contain lycopene, a powerful antioxidant that may play a role in reducing cancer risk, and are more vitamin-rich than the white. grapefruit have also been touted for their supposed weight-reducing powers. Advocates of the “grapefruit diet”—a fad diet popular in the 1970s that involved consuming grapefruit at every meal—claimed that grapefruit contains a special fat-burning enzyme. While research has not supported this theory, at just 40 calories for one half of a medium-sized grapefruit, there’s no doubt this nutrient-packed super fruit is a great option for those watching their weight.

buy · store · serve You can purchase grapefruit year-round, and right now is the height of the grapefruit season, when they are ripe and contain the most antioxidants, according to research. Choose a grapefruit that is glossy, smooth and round and heavy for its size, steering clear of those with brown or soft spots. Store grapefruit at room temperature for up to a week, or in your refrigerator for up to eight weeks. Let grapefruit warm to room temperature before consuming, whether you prefer to scoop yours out with a spoon or slice it into wedges.
