Dr. David Rosenbaum talks the talk and walks the walk. As a cardiologist at UCHealth, he knows the importance of lifestyle choices for overall good health, but especially as those choices relate to heart disease. He opted to make some of them himself by changing his diet and getting serious about staying fit.

Rosenbaum grew up with parents who were health focused, and he had always been involved with sports. But moving to Colorado Springs brought bigger changes.

"When I moved here 15 years ago, I got into cycling," he said. "A few years later, I met James Herrera, a bicycling coach, who highly recommended reading 'The Engine 2 Diet.'"

Rosenbaum got the book and latched on to the vegan diet that the book focuses on.

There were a couple of hiccups during the construction of the much anticipated Prime25, 1605 S. Tejon St., a new steak and fish palace. The opening had been planned for the first week of December. But because of weather and inspection delays, the soft opening happened on the blustery first Saturday night of January. And the place was jumping with happy diners jockeying for seats.

"This was supposed to be a very soft opening with maybe around 50 attending," said Ali West, the general manager. "But the next thing we knew there were more like 150 guests on the list."

Inside the elegant, two-story dining area, it's hip and feels like you could be in other dining meccas like Las Vegas or South Beach.

<![CDATA[Colorado Springs' Temple Shalom puts spotlight on Israeli cuisine with film and buffet]]> http://gazette.com/colorado-springs-temple-shalom-puts-spotlight-on-israeli-cuisine-with-film-and-buffet/article/1594558?custom_click=rss http://gazette.com/colorado-springs-temple-shalom-puts-spotlight-on-israeli-cuisine-with-film-and-buffet/article/1594558?custom_click=rss

Many of us fondly remember Temple Shalom Sisterhood's pop-up deli, where corned beef sandwiches were sold by the hundreds to benefit the organization. Sadly that was discontinued several years ago. Temple members have created a new event with an educational focus: The Jewish Film Series.

The series kicked off in November, and now the second film, "Searching for Israeli Cuisine," is on tap for Jan. 29. It's directed by Roger Sherman and follows chef Michael Solomonov - winner of a James Beard award and co-owner of the acclaimed Zahav restaurant in Philadelphia - into kitchens all over Israel. Among his other prestigious awards, Sherman won a James Beard award for "The Restaurateur," about the creation of two world-class restaurants.

Bagels and Caribou Coffee is a tasty bite]]> http://gazette.com/table-talk-hot-green-chile-club-at-einstein-bros.-bagels-and-caribou-coffee-is-a-tasty-bite/article/1594153?custom_click=rss http://gazette.com/table-talk-hot-green-chile-club-at-einstein-bros.-bagels-and-caribou-coffee-is-a-tasty-bite/article/1594153?custom_click=rss

I'm having a moment over Einstein Bros. Bagels and Caribou Coffee downtown. And why not? It's within walking distance of The Gazette for a great cup of joe and I've discovered their gourmet bagels. These bagels are not formed with the traditional hole in the center and are much thinner, which makes them ideal for sandwiches. There are seven flavor choices, which vary: cheesy hash brown, apple cinnamon, green chili, power protein, six cheese, spinach florentine and cheddar jalapeƱo. I've zeroed in on the Hot Green Chile Club ($7.59), which is roasted turkey, thick-cut crispy applewood bacon, lettuce, tomato, red onion and pepper jack cheese, with spicy mayo on the green chili gourmet bagel.

At the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs, Mark Hayes, director for dining and hospitality services, and Russell Saunkeah, executive chef, take sustainability of the dining hall services - from paper to protein - seriously.

"To hold up, maintain, support, or endure, sustainability is one of the core values at UCCS dining hall services," according to the university's website. "We are committed to making well-thought out, strategic choices in our purchasing and operational decision-making with the goal of not compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs."

As part of upholding this commitment, they buy seafood from Sea to Table, a Brooklyn, N.Y.
