The Best is Yet to Come...


Rene Teran Hello 2012! It’s a fresh new year and with it comes thoughts of change, hope, and new beginnings. Every year, people make resolutions to do things differently like eat healthier, workout, stop smoking, or spend more time with friends and family.The sad truth is that after a month or two of struggling to make these changes, reality sets in and it’s just too hard to keep the momentum going. Our enthusiasm fades and our ambitious resolutions fade into the background of our busy lives. We fall back into old patterns of watching too much television instead of exercising or eating fast food in place of home cooked meals. So how do we stay motivated to really change our ways? My advice, start slow and take it step by step. I’m not of the mindset that you should go big or go home because there’s more of a risk for you to end up “going home”. Last year, I honestly didn’t even make any New Year’s resolutions. But this year I’m going to make a resolution to make resolutions. See, slow and steady, and now that’s one resolution complete. If you are looking to make a lifestyle change to get healthier, you can make small changes that will make a big difference. Check out “99 is not 100” for one local’s opinion on what you can do or take some advice from Dr. Suzanne Havala Hobbs column on practical/impractical New Year’s health resolutions. Several of the articles in this issue have to do, in one way or the other, with making a change step by step. Gardening guru, Kelly Lockamy, discusses the astounding increase in recent years of Americans with Type 2 Diabetes and what we can do now to prevent it in ourselves. The Well FED Pet column is focused on basic cat nutrition and explains some things about the feline diet that may just change your mind on what you feed yours. Be sure to read about the new Foxy Loxy Café and Print Gallery which also features a recipe for delicious Rosemary Lemon Shortbread Cookies. Finally, we have not one, but three fabulous drink recipes to try from our friends at Cha Bella and the Low Country Wine Society. This year, let’s hope for the best and initiate change by starting with the little steps. Ride your bike instead of driving your car, shop at a local mom and pop instead of a mega retailer, try new foods or recipes (hint, hint), because even though these are small changes, they can make a big difference.

The statistics for Americans are grim; we’ve become the fat neighbors in the global neighborhood. Putting fashion aside, the problem is one of health. In a time when we’re so concerned with national health care and the lack thereof, being obese adds insult to injury. The statistics are easily found online, here’s a brief summary from the “Data from the 2011 National Diabetes Fact Sheet,” released Jan. 26, 2011.

25.8 million children and adults in the United States—8.3% of the population— have diabetes, and about 1 in every 400 children and adolescents has diabetes.

Cost of Diabetes:

$174 billion Total costs of diagnosed diabetes in the United States in 2007 $116 billion Direct medical costs $58 billion Indirect costs (disability, work loss, premature mortality) Poverty and race directly correlate with the incidence of diabetes, if you’re a minority and poor, you have a higher probability of being obese and developing diabetes; Mississippi ranks 1st in both obesity and poverty on a national scale.Here in Georgia we’re ranked 13th in poverty and 18th in obesity. In Chatham county, we’re 28.7% obese, 11.7% diabetic, and 15% of us are at poverty level. Type 2 diabetes accounts for about 95% of all diabetics. This type correlates directly to obesity and dietary lifestyle. The body becomes insulin resistant and the production of insulin can’t keep up. The long term health effects are heart disease, stroke, hypertension, eye diseases and blindness, kidney disease & failure, and nerve damage leading to amputations of extremities.

It’s definitely a cultural problem with dietary aberrations becoming the norm for the past several generations. I had both lifestyles modeled for me as a child. Most of my childhood was spent with my vegetarian grandparents who modeled a wholesome dietary lifestyle with homemade whole wheat bread baked every Friday, homemade granola, and fresh vegetables from the garden that I was indentured to during my youth.

Georgia’s Ranking 13th in poverty 18th in obesity

Chatham’s Ranking 28.7% obese 11.7% diabetic 15% at poverty level

Type 2 diabetes used to be rare in kids. Health care providers are finding more and more children with type 2 diabetes; a disease usually diagnosed in adults aged 40 years or older. Childhood obesity, income level and increasing cases of diabetes in children are directly related. Is healthy food really more expensive to buy or is it more a matter of time and convenience?

From age 7-11 I lived with my working single mother who took shortcuts to cooking with t.v. dinners, instant mashed potatoes, minute rice and so forth. From my own experience I can empathize with single working moms who choose not to face cooking a meal from scratch and the clean-up that ensues after a long day at work.

But isn’t modeling a healthy lifestyle and diet to our kids important enough to spend the time it takes to cook healthy meals? So how can we get back to a culture of cooking whole foods from scratch, sitting down to meals together with the tv off and connecting to each other and our food at the same time? This investment of time and effort will certainly pay off in the long run for everyone, especially for future generations.

In my mind, the answer is in the word, “together.” It takes a village to raise and feed a child right. It takes everyone from school teachers to film and sport celebrities to model a healthy dietary lifestyle for our children. Otherwise, we can feed our kids the right way at home only to send them to school where the latest fundraiser is selling donuts or candy bars, the school store has junk food available, and the vending machines are full of sugary-processed things to eat & drink. The nutrition department of our school system, under the direction of Altheria Maynard is trying to change all this. But the schools are in a hard place to ban the junk food in their stores or to limit lucrative sugar-based fundraisers. Parents and schools are hurting for money with which to send the kids on mandated field trips. We as a concerned community need to step up to support service oriented fundraising activities, auctions and sales of non-food items. Candy & processed snack food should be banned from school stores and only healthy, whole foods be allowed for sale.

Here’s an idea...

How about a school garden where the kids can learn to grow food during class time because the lessons are tied in to the curriculum, bag up the produce and sell it CSA-style to the parents on Fridays as a fundraiser? Or even sell it to the cafeteria in the form of a fresh salad bar? Our school system spends $10,000 on fresh produce weekly! Some of that money could be going to the schools that grow food. It’s been shown that kids who grow vegetables eat more of them than they did before. It’s an outdoor activity, there’s exercise involved, and has a valuable outcome in the way of food and revenue.

Exercise is yet another issue... Americans take the time to watch an average of 3 hours of TV per day, and another 2.5 hours on other electronic devices. Let’s cut back 3 of those hours and use one for exercise: walk, play ball, bike- anything active. Then use two hours for time to prepare & clean-up after a wholesome meal from affordable staple ingredients and seasonal produce from local farms and gardens. Involve the kids in the process and spend that time together.TV time is not quality connecting-with-each-other time. Not only does the TV take our time, it also promotes the very kinds of foods that are killing us. Do you ever see commercials promoting the health benefits of fresh carrots? No, mostly what you see are processed junk foods that corporations promote for the sake of their bottom line. So kill your TV before it kills you and make meal time an event and a learning experience with your kids tonight. Create family meal traditions; the memories and stories from these hours spent together will last a lifetime.

It’s time to kill your TV. Well FED

Saturdays 9am - 1pm

We will return in 2012

starting Feb. 11th See you next year! - the Farmers


here is something incredibly inspiring about a clean slate. It is the feeling you might get watching the sun rise over the ocean or the emotion of seeing a newly born baby - all of the promise and potential. It is the opportunity to start anew. It is the opportunity to correct previous wrongs or simply embark on a new path free of the cumbersome binds of the past’s mistakes. Unadulterated potential. For millions (maybe billions) of people throughout the world, the transition from one year to the next is that opportunity, that clean slate, that chance to start anew - the infamous New Year’s Resolution.

Each year around this time, we renew to ourselves a commitment to do things differently from now on; we become resolute in creating a better situation for our future selves - to change. And that is essentially what this is all about - change. There is something we would like to change and what better time to change than with the calendar - on 01/01? But change is difficult. There is safety in routine and to change something requires a step into the unknown, outside of our comfort level. After all, what would happen if we failed to live up to our new commitment? That would be terrible! (sarcasm!).

But as most adults know by now, failure isn’t that painful, they end up being our best learning experiences and our failures are usually the impetus for wanting to change in the first place. It is in leaving our comfort zone that learning takes place and that is a great thing right? So we have nothing to fear in change or in leaving our comfort zones as both seem to lead to better things. However, what I have learned is that change for most people just isn’t that convenient. After all, who has the time to get to the gym or begin writing in a journal or cooking more meals at home? We just can’t squeeze it in with the work and the kids and the bills and the only personal time you get is the 20-30 minutes right before merciful sleep. Well this is just a matter of priorities isn’t it? You have a hierarchy in your head of the things that NEED to get done and only after that can you hope to get to the things you WANT to get done. There are literally thousands of books and studies and articles about how we confuse ‘need’ and ‘want’ and how we should prioritize but to me what is most important is starting with one small change.

Well FED


As this is Well FED Magazine, I am going to focus on one of the most popular New Year’s resolutions: changing your eating habits, usually the one about eating better and losing weight. Actually, improving your eating habits will affect your entire life! Your health, your appearance, your energy levels (which in turn can lead to more efficiency and in turn, more time to do other things such as exercise), and people will just like you more (not proven although very much suspected). It is also not that difficult to do. This resolution is more a shift than an actual new change. You simply shift the dollars you are spending on quick, unhealthy foods to healthy yet still convenient ones. As a matter of fact, this can be a many bird, one stone deal as you can incorporate eating local and supporting local producers at the same time! There are so many more options now in Savannah for getting healthy, organic fruits and vegetables than even three years ago. The best in my opinion is Local Farmbag. They work directly with local farmers, all of whom happen to be organic, and will deliver the fruits and vegetables directly to your home or office. They also provide breads, cheeses, seafood, dairy, eggs, coffee, beef, pork and so much more all from local producers. Now this may seem like a luxury for some of you but all that is required is a shift. Shift some your food dollars to a program such as this and you will not only start eating and feeling better but you can do it with almost no effort and it is brought directly to you. The money spent at Kroger, Publix or Fresh Market shifted to a program like Local Farmbag

will yield a better quality and amount of produce for your dollars and the warm fuzzy feeling you can achieve knowing you are supporting the local community and the hard working small family farmer and producer is irreplaceable. It is a small change but it’s impact is tremendous. I watched a documentary recently in which they spoke to many people who practically lived in what was at the time, the largest landfill in the world outside Rio de Janeiro. The workers would sift through literal mountains of trash looking for recyclable materials and when one of them was asked what difference does one aluminum can make - he said “99 is not 100.” That really struck a chord with me personally as I used to own a commercial recycling company and I would hear this question a lot - especially here in Savannah. I wish I had heard that phrase before because although I would say the same thing only with a lot more words, it is simple and elegant and very appropriate. That one small thing can make a world a difference. You are in control of that one thing and its impact should never be questioned or underestimated. Change can be made at any time but as long as we have this universal opportunity for a clean slate, we should take advantage of it but with reason and a plan. You CAN have an impact on the local community and eat better at the same time. You CAN improve your health and the health of your family with one small shift. 99 is not 100. Take this time to be the one.

Networking Breakfast AND









with Suzanne Havala Hobbs

Elect to Make a Change in Your Health It’s a new year and a time of change for our nation. Harness the optimism and make it a time of change at home by taking steps to improve your diet and health. It’s a hard thing to do. In fact, you may have tried some strategies in the past that didn’t work out. Some approaches aren’t realistic for everyone. Think about what’s worked for you and what hasn’t.

For many of us, it isn’t practical to: Count Calories. Strictly budgeting your food intake each day and keeping meticulous diet records is a set-up for failure for many of us. A better option is to keep a food diary for a few days every now and then. Less fuss, but it helps you maintain a level of awareness about what and how much you eat.

Follow a structured diet. I’ve been counseling people on diet for nearly 30 years. The most frequent request hasn’t changed: “Do you have a diet sheet I can follow?” Problem is, nobody follows them. Not for long, anyway. We want detailed instructions, but we don’t adhere to the plan for long. Why? Carved-in-stone plans aren’t flexible enough – or people don’t have the necessary skills – to adapt them to the changing circumstances of busy lives.

Substitute specialty products. Tasteless cookies and other low-cal desserts, meal replacement drinks and diet bars aren’t satisfying because they don’t provide the texture, flavor and other sensory experiences we enjoy in our meals. They can be expensive, too.

Gym memberships and home fitness equipment that go unused. If you’ve tried and it isn’t working, try something else. If you don’t use the equipment, sell it to someone who will. -Continued on the next page. Well FED


Don’t delay in figuring out what works for your lifestyle and personality. Try to find that happy medium between structure and freedom, discipline and flexibility. For many of us, that means taking simple steps to set up an environment and routine that over time supports health.

Yes We Can: Keep fruit in the house. A large bowl of different kinds of fresh fruit – bananas, apples, pears, oranges – adds color like a floral arrangement. It also makes for quick and portable snacks or the raw ingredients for salads and garnishes.

Pack a lunch for work or school. I mention this often, but it’s a very important and easy way to gain control over a substantial portion of your food intake each day. You’re more likely to eat well and avoid junky vending machine snacks and fatty, high-calorie restaurant food. You’ll save money, too. Eat more beans and less meat. Again, a simple change with the potential for having a major impact on your overall diet quality. If you don’t know how to begin, experiment with recipes for bean chili, beans and rice, or bean soup. Try your hand at bean burritos. These are foods that most people like. They’re familiar, good for you, inexpensive and easy to make. Use them to replace meat several times each week, and you’ll boost your intake of beneficial nutrients while cutting back on those you get too much of.

Incorporate more ethnic dishes. Expand your repertoire by eating Indian curries and dahl, Chinese stir-fry vegetable dishes, Mediterraneanstyle salads, sides and entrees such as couscous, hummus, salads and soups. Diversity in your diet can help you break free of traditional traps – the cheeseburgers and steaks – that prevent you from making positive changes in your diet.

Walk. To the store, to work, in your neighborhood. No special equipment is needed, and you can do it year-round just about anywhere. It’s free, it’s flexible, it’s enjoyable (take a friend or your dog) and it’s effective.

This is the year. Aim for changes you can believe in. Suzanne Havala Hobbs is a registered, licensed dietitian and nationally recognized writer on food, nutrition and dietary guidance policy.

Cats are Carnivorous By Chiriga Moore, JCM Pet Sitting & Animal Care Services

Have you ever observed a cat chowing down on a carrot for a light snack? According to Dr. Lisa A. Pierson, DVM, cats are obligate carnivores. That means no veggies please. God created cats with teeth specifically designed to puncture, tear and swallow.

A cat’s tummy is not designed to properly digest plants. Instead, they attain the majority of the nutrition needed, water included, from meat and fish. The National Association of Professional Pet Sitters (NAPPS) online library list a cat’s four basic dietary needs; protein from a meat, fish, or poultry source; taurine, an essential amino acid; vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and fatty acids; and water. As a rule of thumb, cats do not need carbohydrates.

The next great debate for cats dietary needs are dry food vs wet food? By far, dry food is the least expensive and most convenient. Dry food can be left out so the cat can graze eating as he wants. According to DVM Lisa Person, feline owners should take a closer look at canned cat food and raw diets. As stated above, cats are designed to ingest water with their meal. Natural pray for cats contain 70% of the water necessitated by for a proper feline diet. Dr. Lisa asserts that cats do not have a strong thirst drive. Thus feeding cats a predominately dry food diet, which only contains 10% water, can lead to kidney and bladder health issues. Canned food provides 78% water and cats who eat wet food consume twice as much water over those fed a dry food/water diet.

In this round, wet food wins!

More is not always better. When cat owners buy the cheap stuff they may end up paying more in the end. Your furry friend will eat the amount of food necessary to obtain the nutrients he needs. A cat can consume twice as much of the cheaper food, which may be full of carbohydrate fillers, to get the needed nutrients. Over the years, cats that eat poor quality foods may have poor health that can lead to big vet bills. Be on the lookout and avoid food with certain ingredients. NAPPS online library lists the ingredients cat owners should avoid. Run when you see words like by-products, meat/bone meal, added sugars, chemical preservatives (BHA, BHT, ethoxyquin,& propyl gallate), corn meal fillers, and carbohydrate fillers. NAPPS library article asserts that some dry foods can contain up to 50% of grain and carbohydrate fillers. What is a concerned kitty owner to do? I would suggest that you keep these three things

First, incorporate wet food into your cat’s diet. While

in mind.

you may not have the budget to give your cat an exclusive wet food diet, adding canned food can increase the amount of water your cat ingests which in turn will better hydrate it’s body and improve overall health.

An article by Marcia Banes

rom coffee to art,

to tex-mex and beer, Foxy Loxy Print Gallery and Café is taking a new approach to the barista days of old, making it a must see destination for Savannah locals. The café’s foxy name makes it immediately appealing and upon entering its doors, I am welcomed by its unique rustic charm. Brilliant splashes of color are everywhere you turn but the most noticeable may be the beautiful red hair of the cafe’s foxy owner, Jennifer Jenkins. Jennifer is a self-proclaimed military brat, spending her childhood in Texas and attended high school in Pennsylvania, where her friends referred to her as “The Art Chick.” She still remains in touch with her favorite art teacher, Mrs. Dougherty, who helped her understand that art was substantial and not just a hobby. But when she went on to attend Penn State University, Jennifer’s love for art began to fall into the background as she decided to major in science. What prompted her to major in a field so completely opposite of an art degree? She says, “I was good at science, and I thought if I majored in art, I would end up teaching and I didn’t care for public speaking.” She moved to Madison, Wisconsin after graduating with her bachelor’s degree in life science and started living in what she refers to as an “overly normal life.” Jennifer was working a nine-to-five job at Biotech, living in the suburbs and pursuing her undergraduate degree in premed. It was when she was filling out the statement of purpose on her undergrad applications that Jennifer realized she was lying to herself; this was not the life she really wanted. Jennifer’s mother was a teacher at her alma mater where an alumni student visited to speak about the Savannah College of Art and Design. After contacting the former student, she took a trip to Savannah, knowing that she wasn’t looking for just a place to live; she wanted to invest in a home. Ready to escape the snow and the suburbs, Jennifer moved to Savannah in 2003 where she attended SCAD and received her Master of Fine Art and Fibers. -Continued on the next page. Well FED


Although Jennifer loved fibers, she felt more alive when she was printmaking and began working full time for the print shop at SCAD after graduation. Surprisingly, she also began teaching an Intro to Print course at the school that she says she “got suckered into, I ended up doing the one thing I said I would never do.” After another three years of teaching at SCAD, she suddenly felt a sense of urgency to decide what she wanted to accomplish for the future. “I didn’t want to hang out in academia for the rest of my life, and I realized it was time for the next step.” Her need to change led Jennifer to Jake Hodesh at The Creative Coast in Savannah for advice. During one of many brainstorming sessions, she remembered a night at Penn State where she and a friend had developed a business plan for a coffee shop that served microbrews and wine.

She tells me they mapped out the entire scenario over a bottle of wine and it had never crossed her mind again until the idea resurfaced in her conversations with Jake, who also thought it was a great idea. She then pitched the concept to her parents and they told her that they would support her business, so the hunt for a location began. The space on Bull Street became available and Jennifer says the potential of the building’s character was the driving force that made her jump on the opportunity; she signed the lease 2 weeks later. Jen recalls that the day she received the key and was the last time she remembers sleeping soundly. Jennifer first sought the expertise of Philip Brown, owner and roast master of PERC Coffee in Savannah, because although she had done extensive research, she had never been a barista.

“...I realized it was time for the next step.”

Immediately after her initial conversation with Philip at the Forsyth Farmer’s Market, she called her mom and told her she had found the person who can make this work. She also consulted with Margaret Coughlin from B. Matthews on the café’s tex-mex menu inspired by Jennifer’s childhood in Texas.“If I served any other type of food, I’d be faking it,” she said. To complete the team, she then hired chef Sky Hoyt and pastry chef Kelly Spivey to add to her team of foxy ladies and the menu of fresh made cookies, breads and desserts expanded to include a daily selection of quiches, soups and tacos. While you are sipping on your latte at the café, take time to browse the Foxy Gallery’s collection of hand pulled prints available for purchase including, etchings, lithographs, woodcuts and screen prints. Pay attention to the reclaimed wood front counter and hand crafted book shelves made locally by The Wooden Sheep, which hold the bound journals handmade by Jennifer herself along with postcards and other unique art gifts. One of my favorite features of the place is the historic Victorian courtyard located directly behind the café. It has outdoor seating available all day Thursday, Friday and Saturday (7:00am – 11:00pm.) The courtyard is also available for private events such as bridal showers, birthday parties and business luncheons. There is free parking available around the back of the building and the café houses a take-one, leave-one book library and free Wi-Fi. Another thing to love about Foxy Loxy is that not only is it a great place to enjoy coffee and breakfast, it also happens to be a hip little spot to indulge in a night cap. The café serves a robust selection of microbrews, craft beers and wines. Foxy Loxy’s version of Happy Hour is called Latte’s and Lonestars, where guests can enjoy $2 Lattes and $2 Lone Star Beers from 5pm – 8pm Mondays through Fridays. Their most popular weekly event is Acoustic Night, every Tuesday at the café beginning at 8pm, featuring a variety of unique acoustic talents. During the winter season, the café is hosting Marshmallow Roasts every Saturday from 7p-11p with fire and mallows provided. Foxy Loxy Print Gallery and Café is located at 1919 Bull Street between 35th and 36th, stop by Monday through Saturday from 7am-11pm and try the Huevos Rancheros Quiche or Mexican Mocha. Jennifer offers an apology to her customers for being closed on Sunday telling us, “Give me one more year with Sunday’s off and we’ll talk brunch.” While you are at the cafe, say hello to Jennifer’s dad, Mike, who you will likely find amongst the tables and you even catch her mother, Mary Margaret, who will greet you with a smile.

The Bitter Truth.

by Chad Lyon

The word “Bitter” really has gotten a bad name, while “Sweet” is commonly used to describe the best things in life. “Bitter” is used to contrast “Sweet” within the word “bittersweet”, a term defined as conflicted-happiness. “Bitter” is used to explain unpleasant weather (bitter cold, bitter wind) as well as painful mental states (bitter truth, bitter sorrow). When someone is “bitter” about a situation, they are resentful and cynical. How did so many negative connotations get attached to this word? I am here to redeem the name of bitters by elaborating upon the contributions of “bitters” to the health of society!

Origins For millennia, the human race has been developing potions for love, elixirs of life, kidney & liver tonics, and herbal remedies. Frequently, medicine men, healers, sorcerers, “witches”, and physicians administered tonics to the general public for a variety of different ailments and maladies. They were often made from tree bark, fungi, herbs, and spices that were profoundly bitter due to the high concentration of fibrous material. During the U.S. Prohibition on alcohol, concentrated bitters and drinking bitters remained legal for medicinal purposes, despite being near 50% alcohol. As the booze quality declined during prohibition, flavored bitters and simple syrup were added to make the “daily fix” bearable to ingest.Today, the cutting edge bartender is using the best spirits with fresh fruit and highly nuanced bitters to create libations fit for royalty.

Drinking Bitters

Concentrated Bitters

Drinking bitters were originally developed as medicinal agents. Bitters classified for drinking are usually liqueurs consumed as digestifs, although this is not always the case. A digestif is meant to soothe the gastrointestinal tract after a indulging in a great feast. One kind of drinking bitters that became popular for combating malaria is commonly added to gin. Here are few examples:

A more potent version, called “concentrated bitters” are typically too overwhelming to drink by themselves. Usually, a spirit will be added, along with a sweet component to balance the drink.

Tonic water is the bitter component in the popular

adult beverage, gin and tonic. Quinine, naturally occurring in the bark of a tree, has been used for centuries by the indigenous populations of central and South America. It was first used by Europeans in Rome in the mid-1600s to treat Malaria and it was assumed to have fever-reducing, pain-killing, and antiinflammatory properties.

Campari is another popular drinking bitter and an integral component in the classic Negroni cocktail: a favorite Italian “before dinner” drink. This distinct liqueur was developed in Novara, Italy around 1860 by Gaspare Campari.

Angostura is the most commonly used and well known of bitters. It is said that only 5 people in the world know the entire recipe. A German physician developed the formula in the small town of Angostura,Venezula in 1824. It was first sold to sailors & fisherman in Venezula for sea sickness and other stomach maladies.

Peychaud’s Bitters, created around 1830 by Antoine

Amédéee Peychaud in “The Big Easy” New Orleans, Louisiana. A lighter body, sweeter, and more floral bitters, it is essential for the official drink of New Orleans, The Sazerac!

Fee Brother’s Bitters has the widest range of flavored bitters available at your local liquor/wine store for a great price. The Fee Orange Bitters is an easy one to play around with in an Old Fashioned or Manhattan.

To the bitter end... If you are interested in making your own bitters there are many great recipes available online. Be prepared to invest some time, there are no shortcuts when making bitters. It truly is a bitter process! Now that we have demystified the origins and uses of bitters, let’s hope you feel comfortable exploring the “Bitter World”! For starters, try out this recipe for Negroni:


prepared with Campari Bitters 3/4 oz Campari 1 1/2 oz Juniper gin 3/4 oz Sweet Italian Vermouth (preferably Punt e Mes) 1 piece orange zest with some pith Combine all the liquid ingredients in an ice-filled cocktail shaker. Stir gently for 20-30 seconds, until cold, and then strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Top the drink with orange zest. Well FED


Acai Lemonade Given the season’s unusually warm temperatures

we’ve had recently, we decided to have our friends at Cha Bella help us put together two different drink recipes that will work no matter what it’s like outside. Nothing goes with a nice warm day, better than some lemonade (with a kick) and when the temperature drops, try pairing this campfire martini with a nice warm fire and you’ll really be feeling the warmth! Thanks so much to Vikram Bhonsle and James Kalinke for sharing these recipes with us. James recommends you try pairing these recipes with a nice goat cheese cake and encourages everyone to try and experiment with their own herbs and fresh fruits when mixing drinks at home. For more tips and recipes, stop by Cha Bella and ask for Vik or James, they’re located at 102 East Broad St and pretty much always there and more than happy to help.

--You can also check out the interview with bartender James Kalinke on Well FED’s Facebook page. While you’re there, share your own favorite drink recipes with us on our page and you could win a free dinner to Cha Bella. If your recipe is selected, we’ll print it in a future issue of Well FED and treat you to dinner on us! -Are you Well FED?

What exactly is a bar? Is it any place that has a physical bar which you can sit at? Does it have to be a full bar or does just beer count too? What about a wine bar? Sake bar? Bar and grill? Well FED strives to give you the most accurate and complete listings possible, but we need your help.
