Healthy Dining Over the Holidays from St. Charles Nutrition Program To make the holiday season more healthful and enjoyable, St. Charles Registered Dietitian RanDee Anshutz recommends setting realistic goals and advises that people should simply try to enjoy the holidays with family and friends while maintaining their current weight. To do so, Anshutz suggests eating a healthy snack that is low in fat and high in fiber such as an apple or veggie sticks with a low fat dip before attending holiday parties. “This can help you to avoid filling up on high-calorie treats or over-eating at the buffet line,” she said. After filling a plate of food, sit down, pay attention to what you’re eating and avoid unnecessary grazing. Remember that smaller portions can be savored slowly and that leftovers can be taken home for a snack or lunch. For parties, potlucks, or work events, offer to bring a healthy snack. The fruit or vegetable tray will add a nice balance to all the sweets. When preparing dishes, smaller amounts or lower fat alternatives can often be substituted in recipes to shave off some extra calories. “Also, beware of alcohol and other drinks high in calories,” Anshutz said. “So drink in moderation and remember that water is always a great choice.” Finally, make movement a part of the holiday experience with a nice after dinner walk or game of ball while the turkey is cooking. For more information, or to develop an individualized meal plan that fits your lifestyle and needs, contact a Registered Dietitian. The St. Charles Diabetes and Nutrition Program can be reached at 541-706-3752. To find healthy and affordable recipes visit

Annual winter festival offers thrills, spills and activities for the whole family! One of the best things about winter is it provides skiers and snowboarders a chance to catch some big air. In the Old Mill District thrill seekers and spectators alike can appreciate the demonstration of speed and height at the OnPoint Community Credit Union Oregon WinterFest. Presented by American Family Insurance, the event runs February 16 -19, 2012. Held over the President’s Day weekend the event is the Northwest’s largest winter festival. WinterFest’s main feature is the off-mountain rail jam— a colossal structure built in Bend’s Old Mill

District. The U.S. Cellular Rail Jam takes a team of design engineers a week to build, and requires fifty dump truck loads of snow to be hauled from Mount Bachelor into town. Family friendly activities include a kid’s performance and craft area with The Oregon Museum of Science (OMSI) Science Festival Kit including touch tables and brain teaser activities that will challenge a wide range of ages. Stroll through the European-style market, selling the Northwest’s best food, wine and fine art. Check out the amazing feats of snow carving and ice sculpting. Each evening offers

live music on an outdoor stage. Over the past seven years WinterFest has awarded over $40,000 to local and regional charities that serve Oregon communities. This charitable contribution is raised in part each year by WinterFest pass sales that go on sale in November at and

Good Food, Good Company … and the Fantastic Tidings of Central Oregon Craft Beer Here in Central Oregon, we are proud to boast some of the highest beer-percapita rates in the country. Perhaps there is no time of year in which we revel in our craft beer culture more than the holidays, when many of our favorite (okay … ALL of our…) local breweries release limited edition winter ales. These brews are created for the crisp winter days in Oregon, meant for sharing with friends and pairing with the rich and hearty foods that mark the holiday season. Here are just a few of the local beers brewed specifically to help you celebrate the winter season:

10 Barrel Brewing Pray for Snow:

Bend Brewing Company Doppelbock: This winter ale’s huge

malt aroma assails the nose with a sweet complexity. At the first sip, the beer slinks over the palate leaving in its wake an intense creamy, sweet, nutty maltiness and nuances of freshly baked bread. What’s not to love?

Brew Werks Red Flag Imperial:

A nutty red ale that will warm you up from the inside out with a solid 8 percent alcohol, this malty brew is medium hopped to go down just right. Not available at press time (comes out in November), the powers that be still need to taste the beer to give an accurate description, but we can pretty much guarantee one thing: it will be tasty!

Cascade Lakes Brewing Slippery

Slope: This new winter seasonal is replacing the brewery’s past holiday beer “Santa’s Little Helper.” This new full-bodied ale uses crystal malt and generous amounts of cascade hops to produce a well-balanced seasonal ale. So, whether your slippery slope is a mountain or your sidewalk (or possibly holidays with the in-laws) , this ale makes an excellent companion.

Deschutes Brewery Jubelale:

Jubelale is brewed with dark crystal malt creating a luscious holiday note with bountiful hops to excite the taste buds. For the past 17 years, Deschutes Brewery has selected a local Oregon artist to create an image evocative of the season’s festive atmosphere. The original artwork on the Jubelale label is a welcome addition each year to this

Boneyard Beer Femme Fatale: A

little bit different flavor for the season, this sour ale has been fermented with raspberries and has a medium body. Also known as the “breakfast beer” (ah, one we can have before hitting the slopes) for its morning flavor, this makes a great alternative to a bloody

fantastic beer. The intricate and unique art on the label enhances the Jubelale experience much like beautiful wrapping paper enhances a gift.

Good Life Brewing Pass Stout:

Harkening back to the medieval times in England, when oats were a common ingredient in ale, oatmeal stout is gaining again in popularity. Nope, it doesn’t taste of oats, but is an extremely smooth, balanced brew with roast chocolate and coffee flavors. Perfect for warming up around the fire pit after a long day on the mountain.

McMenamin’s Kris Kringle: The

2011 version of this “winter warmer” highlights the rich, toasty, aromatic and chocolaty malt flavors as its very sturdy foundation. Four different hop varieties deliver a magnificent and massive hop assault. There’s still some ginger and cinnamon added into the batch but the spices are a little more subdued than in years’ past.

Phat Matt’s Brewing Company

Phat Matt’s IPA: While this brand-new brewery hasn’t been open long enough to even plan a winter seasonal, they did come out of the gates last September with a classic IPA that’s worth a mention. A deep golden, mild and malty brew, this IPA features late hop additions that contribute to floral and

The snow is coming and what a better way to celebrate then with a chest warming Strong Ale built upon malt notes of caramel, vanilla, and molasses. These notes are married with a bubblegum and spice character provided by both English and domestic hops. To round out this beer 50 percent was aged in Brandy barrels to throw in some apricot, wood and peach notes. This will be the perfect beer to sit by the fire and wait for the snow to fly.

mary. Sit back, relax and enjoy your holidays with this hypnotic seduction.

pine aromas with a mellow, bitter finish.

Silver Moon Brewing’s Winter Moon Strong Ale: English IPA meets

northwest winter: this slightly darker IPA packs a smidge more heat to lift the winter chill. Winter Moon is brewed with American, British and Belgian malts. Organic New Zealand hops provide bitterness while American and British hops blend a complex spice finish.

Three Creeks Brewing Company’s Rudolph’s Imperial Red: Take Rudolph’s nose and multiply it exponentially – and you might get to the brightness of this Imperial Red. This big, dark holiday beer is due out just before Thanksgiving. It is about nine percent alcohol and features a hoppy balance with a delightful aroma. Enough to guide the sleigh, we’d say.

So raise a glass and toast the joys of the season with a local brew – there are plenty to choose from. Cheers!
