This year, International Infection Prevention Week is raising awareness about the important role we all play in preventing the spread of infection and promoting patient safety
Cauliflower in your oatmeal? This may sound odd, but it's worth trying! I personally love cauliflower – especially roasted – but typically not riced cauliflower. If I'm having cauliflower rice stir-fry, I can totally tell I am not eating normal rice. But with this oatmeal and egg combination, the texture is so similar to typical oatmeal that it doesn’t faze me, especially after I add all of my flavorful toppings. That being said, it is important to get the texture right: the finer the riced cauliflower, the better it pretends to be oatmeal. If you're using a food processor, blend it very thoroughly. And when microwaving, make sure the cauliflower rice is cooked until very soft.
This recipe isn’t your typical one-dimensional breakfast, a lot of the go-to breakfasts Americans tend to choose end up being carbs drizzled with carbs. These pancakes not only get you the fiber-rich carbohydrates from oatmeal but also dates, spinach, eggs and milk which help you get each of the MyPlate food groups. Having a variety of carbohydrates, protein, and fat helps you have long lasting fuel for your morning and the different food groups give you a nutrient-dense start to your day.

As a dietitian, I often encourage people to fill half of their plate with non-starchy veggies. Whenever I make zoodles, that goal is easy to meet, and I end up eating at least an entire zucchini. Spiralizers expand your veggie options and provide a noodle substitute if you need to cut out gluten or eat fewer carbohydrates.
Boone Hospital President Jim Sinek's summer update.
An energetic, fun-loving, and hard-working group of senior citizens has taken over Boone Hospital Center’s WELLAWARE Fitness Center, and staff isn’t complaining one bit.
Even as a health professional, I believe there’s still a place in life for decadently rich and sweet versions of our favorite foods. But there are small ways you can think like a dietitian and bake like a Grandma.
