While love has its own day on the 14th, heart health is the main focus of February.

American Heart Month is a time to show yourself the love. And a statistic that always astonishes me is that cardiovascular disease is the No. 1 killer of women, as well as men, in the U.S., according to the National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion. The reason it's so stunning is that we hear so much about breast cancer when it comes to women.

Another surprise is the fact that the number of preventable deaths from heart disease has declined in people ages 65 to 74 but has remained unchanged in those younger than 65. And, guys, you are twice as likely as women to die from preventable heart disease.

<![CDATA[On Food: Go online to discover unusual and delicious foods]]> By teresa J. farney teresa.farney@gazette.com http://gazette.com/on-food-go-online-to-discover-unusual-and-delicious-foods/article/1544883?custom_click=rss http://gazette.com/on-food-go-online-to-discover-unusual-and-delicious-foods/article/1544883?custom_click=rss

In December I gave myself a gift: I bought a subscription to "The Rosengarten Report."

Who is Rosengarten and why would you care about what he has to report?

I'm talking about David Rosengarten who achieved fame as a TV chef on the Food Network starting in 1994. His show, "Taste," was hilarious. He explored foods, dishes and beverages.

I still giggle when I remember the one about martinis, where he sipped his way through a battery of the fancy drinks and almost wound up on the floor before he was done.

In 2001, Rosengarten launched a newsletter, "The Rosengarten Report," in which he highlighted the newest, best or most unusual happenings in the food world. I loved them.

January has become the time of year for making changes, usually in the form of lifestyle switches like pledging to eat healthier. And, lo and behold, restaurants are here to help you with those choices. Whether you are looking to cut a few calories or just interested in eating food without preservatives, here's a look at some places that are offering up healthier menu items:

- Applebee's Bar & Grill operations have introduced the Pub Diet, with entrees under 600 calories and high in protein. The recipes feature whole grains, veggies and lean meats. Think pepper-crusted sirloin served with whole grains, spinach and roasted tomatoes, which comes in at 350 calories, 30 grams of protein and 6 grams of fiber, for example. Other dishes

JL Fields is all steamed up. No, she's not mad about anything. As a matter of fact, she's pretty darn happy about almost everything, especially her latest cookbook, "Vegan Pressure Cooking: Delicious Beans, Grains, and One-Pot Meals in Minutes."

Fields has become the consummate mover and shaker in the vegan community. She's a vegan cook, lifestyle coach, educator and author of two cookbooks. She's also a monthly contributor to The Gazette's Go! dining reviews, where she reports on her discoveries of options for vegans at local eateries.

In her new cookbook, she takes the mystery - and sometimes fear - out of using a pressure cooker with her fun instructional style.
