Another delicious and healthy recipe for you to try.
Yummy, scrummy delicious smoked salmon and herb muffins! Great served as mini muffin canapés at a drinks party or as an unusual starter on Christmas Day. In this recipe we use plain white flour, but a healthier option would be to use wholemeal flour. Smoked salmon can however, be high in salt content, so you …

Who doesn’t love the Christmas holidays? Lots of fun, food and frolics plus late nights, lying-in in the mornings and generally over-indulging in every way. You might have gotten away with it a few years ago but once you get to over 50 it is all too easy for the pounds to start creeping on, …

Interesting possible health benefits of vinegar. Read on ...
Vinegar is one of those everyday condiments which we take for granted. It perks up a salad dressing and makes our fish and chips taste great!

Regardless of what else we do, we should all aim for a little more happiness in 2017.
Before we get onto looking at wellness tips for the New Year, what exactly is wellness? One way of interpreting the word is a general feeling of wellbeing, health, fitness and mental good health. It’s more about looking at the body as a whole and not focusing on just one key area. If you think …

A delicious and healthy way to use up those leftovers.
Do you despair knowing what to do with leftover turkey? Bored with sandwiches, salads etc., to use up everything that is inevitably there? We all have a tendency to get huge turkeys and end up eating it for days! Turkey is one of the healthiest meats to eat. High in protein and low in …

Another tasty recipe for you to try. Look out for another one tomorrow.
This recipe for Pork Stuffed Beef Tomatoes is a great way of adapting Christmas stuffing to make a tasty supper dish. Pork is naturally very low in fat, but always remove any fat or skin from what you are using. Pork mince can be substituted for minced veal, for an even healthier, low fat option. A …

Story
Tagline
Providing Health Advice and News for Over 50s.
Introduction
The Best of Health and Dr. Chris Steele MBE are committed to helping people lead fulfilling lives and ageing better for longer and we're focussed on the opportunities that an older society provides for us all. Health care is undergoing huge changes as we're faced with a reversal of the age-pyramid.

The number of older persons has tripled over the last 50 years; it will more than triple again over the next 50 years, already in the UK the National Health Service is overwhelmed with trying to cope with an ageing population and the situation is not getting any better, especially with the prevalence of so many life-style related chronic diseases.

Fixing people after they become ill has always been taken for granted in the UK and so people have largely abused their bodies and taken comfort that when something wrong happens they have the cushion of the NHS to fall back on, the problem with this of course is that the NHS isn't an infinite resource so everybody has to get in line and join the ever-lengthening queue.
