The Doctors: Healthy Holiday Eating Tips
With the holiday right around the corner, The Doctors brought on author of “Domestic Chic” Kristin Sollenne. Kristin explained that as the holidays approach, bring fun back into the kitchen! She said to remember K.I.S.S: Keep It Simply and Seasonal. She recommended visiting your local farmers market to get fresh in-season protein at a bargain, in large amounts. You can use that produce like beets, Brussels sprouts, and parsnips, to make a roasted vegetable salad. But there’s nothing like pasta! Be sure to watch your portion size, but add all kinds of layers of flavor to the bowl to compensate, leaving you fulfilled!
Her philosophy is to “let the seasons guide your palate.” She also suggested drinking with a bottle of wine to make the process even more enjoyable. Click next page to get Kristin’s healthy holiday pasta dish recipe.

The Doctors: Avoid Kitchen Injuries
Speaking of cooking, Taylor Swift recently shared a picture of a kitchen mis-hap on social media, showing off a bandaged thumb. The Doctors took it as an opportunity to talk about how you can stay safe while cooking to avoid an ER visit. First, when slicing, always cut away from your body, and curl your fingers toward your palm to keep from accidentally slicing the top of your finger.
If you do happen to lose an appendage, don’t throw it away! Wrap it in cool moist gauze after you’ve bandaged yourself to stop the bleeding.
