Heart-Healthy Tips for a Hoppy Easter

Studies have shown that eating dark chocolate—in moderation—can help lower blood pressure and cholesterol, according to medical personnel at Sharp Coronado. So, if you’re going to indulge this Easter, opt for dark chocolate instead of milk chocolate. “Milk chocolate is more processed, which means all the components that are healthy for us have been removed. Dark chocolate is less processed,” said Stephanie Nelson, a registered dietician at Sharp Coronado. Nelson, who manages patient food and nutrition services, says cocoa is rich in antioxidants. “Antioxidants protect the body from free radicals, which can cause cancer,” she said. Dark chocolate contains flavanol. This component, also found in red wine and green tea, can help lower cholesterol and the risk of car

Meet Casper the Cat

Casper is a 3-year-old male. He has all the markings of the Flame Point Ragdoll breed, with the soft, fluffy coat and tail to go with it. His colors are white with orange-colored, flame-like tips on his legs, face, ears and tail.  The eyes on this boy are a piercing blue.  Casper is a love bug, giving head butts and allowing kisses. This young man would do best in a family with older children. He can be startled by loud noises and commotion, but gets over it quickly when given reassurance.

Hard-Boiled Advice on How to Dye Easter Eggs

coronado home
I blame a childhood deprived of egg hunts, trick-or-treating and birthday parties for an adult obsession with themed crafts and event planning. Valentine’s Day? I handcraft my own pop-up card. Christmas? Let’s put on a play! Your fish died? Here’s a tiny box I bedazzled for his burial. Also, I’ve taken the liberty of choosing some music I think he would have liked for the service. It starts at sunset. You're coming—right? So it was the Sunday before Easter when I set my sights on dyeing eggs. What fun! I took a spin around the Internet, peeked at a couple of food blogs, checked out Nourish Network, and, of course, consulted Martha Stewart. While I immediately was able to disregard her suggestion to use eggs of varying sizes acquired from quails, geese and ostriches, what c
