Cheers! WNPR Stops By Bone & Joint Institute For 'Food Schmooze'

September 25, 2017

Let's put aside bones and joints for a moment. You must be starving by now. So let's talk about food, the topic du jour Thursday on WNPR when Faith Middleton brought "Food Schmooze" to the Hartford HealthCare Bone & Joint Institute demonstration kitchen for an hour of cooking tips (whole fish on the grill) and good-for-your-muskuloskelatal-health tips from the institute's physician in chief, Dr. Courtland Lewis.

Dr. Lewis, in the middle of the institute's lush new kitchen, talked about overindulgence, good health's link to longevity and the "food dessert" syndrome of bad-for-you fast food. He also dropped this nutritional bomb: "I don't think diets work." It was, as you might suspect, a lively "Schmooze" hour recorded earlier this month.

Hear what else you might have missed -- including a tasting of Alex Province's latest wine pick, Chateau Vieux Poirier, an organic red from Bordeaux -- when the show is rebroadcast Saturday at noon on WNPR (90.5). Or listen to the podcast above.
