What's New?

Anatomy Lesson

 

Dr. Young visited The Academy of Classical Ballet California this summer to teach the girls about the relationship between their muscles, their spines and ballet.  The girls especially enjoyed the hands-on learning with the model of a spine that Dr. Young brought with her!

Color Me Rad 5K

  

Dr. Young and Shannon at the 2012 Color Me Rad 5K in San Jose. They enjoyed it immensely and cannot wait to participate again next year!

 

And, in case you were wondering:

 

"What is the "color" in Color Me Rad? 
 
You're probably asking yourselves, "Is this really color being thrown at us or are the rainbows we're seeing just God's signal that it'll never flood again?" 
 
Well I'm glad you asked.  This isn't just smoke and mirrors.  This is non-toxic, non-rash-inducing, Kroger branded, colored corn-starch.  Subsidized by the government and processed in the good ol' US of A, these blasts of starch will change your color, and your demeanor, but never your level of wellness."  ~via ColorMeRad.com

Pancakes for Dinner

 

Dr. Young has put together this savory twist on a household favorite: breakfast for dinner.  Try this Tomato Pine Nut Topping instead of traditional butter and syrup. 

 
Dry Ingredients
  • 2 C rice flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp xanthan gum
Wet Ingredients
  • 2 eggs (or egg replacer)
  • 3 TB grapeseed oil (or olive oil)
  • 2 C milk (or dairy-free substitute)

Heat a pan or griddle to medium-high heat. 

 

In a large bowl mix together the dry ingredients. Add in the wet ingredients. Mix well. Your batter should be smooth and slowly run off the mixing spoon. Add more milk if it's too thick.


Using a large spoon or my favorite, a measuring cup, pour pancake batter on to the heated pan. Flip when bubbles have formed and the pancakes are nicely browned. Add a little more milk if the batter starts to thicken up as it stands.
 

Serve with tomato pine nut topping (below) 

 

Savory Topping:
  • 1/2 C pine nuts
  • 12 cherry tomatoes, sliced
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • 1/4 C fresh basil, minced
  • 1 TB balsamic vinegar
  • 1 TB olive oil
  • 1 tsp salt

Toast pine nuts over medium heat. Add in remaining ingredients, stir constantly and cook for 3-4 minutes or until the tomatoes are soft but still hold their shape.

 

A spinach side salad goes nicely with this as well.
