Weekend Recipe: Almond-Crusted Chicken Schnitzel
When I was young, mum used to make the most delicious chicken schnitzel that would be devoured as soon as my sister and I arrived home from school. Mum would lightly coat thin pieces of chicken with a little seasoned flour, then dip them into lightly beaten eggs, followed by a final coating in breadcrumbs. Then she would cook the schnitzel with generous amounts of butter and a little olive oil until crisp, and serve with a generous helping of green beans or coleslaw. I’ve modified mum’s recipe and given it a “Healthy Chef” makeover. My chicken schnitzel is gluten free, paleo, high in protein and takes just minutes to create. It’s a simple 15-minute meal that marries perfectly with a side of steamed green beans, dressed with a little lemon or coleslaw with apple cider vinegar dressing. This recipe is from my cookbook Purely Delicious. INGREDIENTS 1 cup ground almonds or almond flour – plus extra if needed 2 lemons 2 tablespoons parsley, chopped 2 chicken breast fillets, sliced in half width ways 1 tablespoon tapioca flour or coconut flour 1 – 2 eggs, lightly beaten Sea salt and pepper to taste DIRECTIONS Place the sliced chicken between two sheets of baking paper and pound with a meat mallet or rolling pin until nice and thin, about 1 cm (1/3 inch) thickness Combine almonds, a little sea salt and pepper, the zest of one lemon and the parsley in a bowl then set aside Lightly coat the thin fillets of chicken breast in the tapioca flo...
In conclusion, our findings indicate that the time from injury to the onset of post-pyloric feeding is crucial, and EPF allows for the administration of calculated caloric needs. Therefore, EPF can be successfully initiated with beneficial outcomes of nutritional reconstruction in severely burned patients. PMID: 30787234 [PubMed - in process]
Publication date: April 2019Source: Journal of Functional Foods, Volume 55Author(s): Qianru Chen, Xiang Gao, Hongwei Zhang, Bafang Li, Guangli Yu, Bo LiAbstractThe effect of collagen peptides (CPs) administration in early basic enteral nutrition (EN) intervention after burn injury on intestinal barrier function was investigated in mice model. Burn-induced increases of intestinal permeability and disruption of intestinal barrier integrity were significantly attenuated by CPs supplemented EN at post-burn day 1, 3 and 7 as compared with only basic EN fed group. CPs revealed a prominent amelioration of the expression and local...
: PREVENT Trial Intermittent pneumatic compression is often given to postoperative patients who are bedridden, to prevent deep vein thrombosis (DVT). It is also used in critically ill medical patients who are similarly bedridden, both in the intensive care unit and in the wards. PREVENT Trial  addressed whether it gives an additional advantage over and above pharmacological thromboprophylaxis when the two are combined. Using intermittent pneumatic compression alone when pharmacological thromboprophylaxis is contra-indicated, has been recommended by guidelines. Sometimes the two modalities are combined in the hope of giv...
We present our clinical, imaging, laboratory, cytohistological and management experience, as well as a historical review of the literature. PMID: 30792805 [PubMed]
To report the first in human gallbladder cryoablation to treat cholecystitis with imaging and clinical follow up.
To investigate the safety and efficacy of irreversible electroporation (IRE) for the management of locally advanced pancreatic cancer (LAPC) in the Korean population.
The purpose of this study was to determine the chemotherapy free interval in comparison to time-to-progression and overall survival in sarcoma patients who undergo ablation procedures.
There is a paucity of data regarding the need for preoperative adrenergic blockade prior to cryoablation for adrenal gland metastases. The largest adrenal ablation cohort (Fintelmann, JVIR 2015) found a 43% rate of hypertensive crisis but had combined data from different ablation modalities which precluded conclusions about the incidence of hypertensive crisis prior to cryoablation. The purpose of our study is to evaluate the safety of cryoablation of adrenal gland metastases performed without preprocedure adrenergic blockade.
The purpose of the study is to systematically review and perform a meta-analysis of radiofrequency ablation as a possible efficacious treatment modality of locally advanced pancreatic cancer.
Radiofrequency ablation (RFA) for colorectal cancer lung metastases (CRCLM) has been studied since 2000 and shown to be safe with promising short to mid-term survival data. RFA aims to be an alternative treatment for CRCLM that are unsuitable for lung resection. Recently, microwave ablation (MWA) has grown in popularity for CRCLM. However, short to long-term efficacy of both modalities have yet to be understood.
