Spring Flowers Bring Spring..... Allergies
Spring is a gloriously idyllic season with chirping birds, beautiful blooms, cool mornings and warm afternoons.  Its geniality distracts us from the barrage of allergens released by flowers, grasses and trees that seek to wreak havoc on perfectly content individuals like you and me.
 
Young girl holding a sunflower
 
Seasonal allergies affect millions across the U.S. resulting in lower productivity or even missed time at work or school, increased healthcare costs and just sheer misery for those affected.  Symptoms include sneezing, itchy and watery eyes, itchy nose and/or throat and nasal congestion.  Fortunately, seasonal allergy symptoms are fairly easy to self-diagnose and control—most of the time.
 
If you’re looking to avoid the throng of red-nosed, watery-eyed victims sneezing their way through spring, follow these simple tips for a truly enjoyable (and allergy-free) season.
 
1. Allergies or a Cold?  If you have fever, sore throat, a productive cough and/or body aches or chills you may be dealing with a cold, flu or other infection rather than allergies.  Consult your pharmacist on when to seek medical attention for symptoms of a cold. If cold or flu like symptoms are present, you can get a Physician 360 Rapid Flu Test at your Brookshire Brothers pharmacy.
 
Physicians 360 Flu Test
 
2. Antihistamines are Key.  If there is a medicinal silver bullet for preventing allergy symptoms, antihistamines are it.  Cetirizine (Zyrtec), loratadine (Claritin) and fexofenadine (Allegra) are first-line over the counter treatments for many allergy symptoms.  They work by blocking histamine, the chemical that makes your body sneeze and itch in response to an allergen.  They are each taken once-daily, work rapidly and are labeled as non-drowsy.  Diphenhydramine or Benadryl, a first-generation antihistamine, works well for allergy sufferers but is not appropriate for everyone and causes a fair amount of drowsiness.
 
3. Use Nasal Steroids if Needed.  Once only available by prescription, steroid nasal sprays like Flonase and Nasacort are now available for purchase over the counter.  These products work by blocking a number of cells involved in the inflammatory process and can prevent or limit allergy symptoms quite effectively.  You can use them alone or in combination with the antihistamines listed above.

4. Stock Up Before You’re Stuck.  We’ve all been there; runny nose and nary a tissue in site.  Before seasonal allergies attack, get ready!  Stock up on tissues, Aquaphor ointment (great for irritated skin on your nose and lips), cough drops for an irritated throat, hand sanitizer, and artificial tears for dry eyes.
 
Don’t let seasonal allergies ruin your spring.  Get outside and enjoy nature—birds, flowers and all!

Back to the Hatch

New Season, New Recipes

It’s that hot time of the year again! Hatch chile peppers have come into their summer season, and we have a few refreshers as well as a whole batch of new recipes to celebrate! Think: Roasted Hatch Chile Mac ‘N’ Cheese, Bleu Cheese Stuffed Hatch Chile Burgers, and Quick Hatch Chile Salsa Fresca—all courtesy of our vendor-friends at Melissa's Produce.
 
Hatch Chile Grilled Quesadilla
 
But first, a quick nutrition and how-to recap from last year’s "Cooking with Kate: All About Hatch."
 

Fun Hatch Facts: 

  • One fresh medium-sized green chile has as much Vitamin C as six oranges.
  • Green chiles are also a great source of Vitamin A, Vitamin B, and fiber.
  • Capsaicinoids—the chemical that make chile peppers spicy—are used in muscle patches for sore and aching muscles, as well as pepper spray!
  • You might think that green and red chiles are different types of peppers, but they are in fact fruit of the same plant picked at different times. The red chile is the fully ripened version of the green chile.
  • These spicy peppers are finding their way into everything—sauces, breads, cheeses, even ice cream! Check your local store for all the available Hatch chile products.
For a brief refresher on the nutritional merits of other summer produce, check out the blog post “Summer Fruit: A Delicious Problem” by our local registered dietitian, Angela Larson!
 

How To: Roasted Hatch Chiles

Roast green chiles using one of the methods below:
  • Broiler: Preheat broiler on high. Place chiles on a baking sheet and place under the broiler for 6-10 minutes, turning often, until chile skins blacken and blister.
  • Charcoal or Gas Grill: Preheat grill and place chiles 4-6 inches from heat. Cook, turning often, until chile skins blacken and blister.
  • Gas Stove: Turn stove to high. Using tongs, hold chiles over flames, turning often, until skins blacken and blister.
Once chiles are roasted, place in a plastic or paper bag for about 10 minutes to steam. Wearing gloves, take the chiles out of the bag and remove the skins by rubbing gently. Use a sharp knife to cut pepper open and remove the stems, membranes, and seeds. Use chiles immediately or let cool completely, package in airtight freezer bags and place in the freezer until ready to use.
 
You can find other tips on storing produce and groceries in your fridge with these “Keepin’ it fresh” guidelines!
