6B The Mountain Messenger, Thursday, October 4, 1990 By ANDREA GAINER WVU Extension Agent, Home Economics, Greenbrier County Pies, as we all know, are fre- quently high in calories, fat and sugar. But you have more than one way to bake a pie that fits Into a lifestyle concerned with food and fitness. Qulche Is a type of main dish pie that has been popularized In many forms. The traditional Qulche lorraine contains Swiss cheese, bacon, eggs, milk, cream and onion -- resulting in a rather high-fat, high-calorie dish. A few substitutions -- such using low-fat mllk Instead of whole milk and cream and t .ng different cheeses -- can slgntfi canfly reduce unwanted calorics. And adding whole wheat to your pie crust recipes, can add a little fiber. You can use a variety of vege- tables in qutche and other main dishes. Vitamin A Is a bonus of deep green vegetables such as spinach and dark yellow vege- tables such as carrots. Broccoli and cauliflower offer Vitamin C. And fiber Is still another health benefit of vegetables. Vegetable sources of protein --- whole grains, seeds, and leg- umes -- can be combined for hearty main dish pies. Legumes, such as dry beans and peas, of- fer you a less expensive source of protein than animal sources such as meat and cheese. They also contain less fat and more fiber. Vegetable proteins offer the most protein value when combined In a meal or recipe; for example, beans with cornbread or beans with rice. You can even trim calories, fat, and sugar from servings of dessert pies. Portion control is one way that doesn't require any tampering with the recipe -- simply eat smaller servings. Pre- paring one-crust ples offers some savings. Fruit pies are of- ten loaded with sugar; but try experimenting with less sugar In your favorite recipes. Avoid top- plng ples with Ice cream or Luck Will Come To Greenbrier whii ped cream -- both are high in calories and fat. Let me send you some Qulche Recipes --just contact me, An- drea Gainer, at P.

As constituted locally, Hos- pice will be home-based, provid- ing services to those who are ter- minally ill and to their their families. The ttospice movement is a National phenomenon which has become increasingly "high profile" in recent years. This is in part attributable to its being "a cost-effective service delivery model and because of the in- creasing numbers of terminally 111 patients who remain at holne." "Hospice cannot extend life," noted Dr Taylor. "It can, how- ever, provide some control to the symptoms of the terminal ill- ness." Terminal illness is defined by Hospice as one which will re- suit in death within a period of six months. Support is provided through nurses, social workers, ministers, and vohmteers. Serv- ices of a physical therapist, oc- cupational therapist, speech- language pathologist, pharma- cist, and dietician will also be available. The primary care pro- vider in most cases will be the personal physician of the pa- tient. "File ultimate goal ls to help the patient and the family live as normal a life as is possible. A significant contribution of the Hospice volunteers is to provide respite to the family of the termi- nally ill patient. Fred Smith of West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine has been helpful in the organiza- tional efforts of Greenbrier Valley Hospice Care. To assist with meeting the financial responsi- bilities a Benedum Foundation grant has been received. A chal- lenge grant of $25,000 has been , made by a member of the local community. While some of the Benedum grant will go toward meeting thai challenge grant, community support is needed. It is esthnated that $80,000 will need to be raised over the next three years. Services provided through Hospice may be reim- bursable through Medicare, Medicaid, and private Insurance carriers. The certificate of need has been received, and action Is proceeding to become an eligible provider for insurance carriers. An additiqnal service offered by Hospice is "supportive be- reavement." Following the death of the terminally-ill patient, fam- ily members often find tile need for assistance in dealing with the loss of their loved one. Recruitment of volunteers has already begun. Interested citi- zens should write the Greenbrier Valley Hospice, Inc., at 400 North Lee Street or call Ms McClung at 6,15-2700. The offi- cers of Greenbrier Valley Hospice are Fred Smith, president; David Jasper, vice president; Rose SuInmers, secretary; and Dr Dexter Taylor, treasurer. Lions' President Bill Nelson, who presided at the meeting, ac- knowledged the presence of Charles Booth, guest of Past Dis- h-let Governor Roy Coffrnan, and Aubrey Hanson, guest of Lion Hayward Hinzman. He also an- nounced recent actions of the Board of Directors which in- eluded the approval of a dona- tion of $I000 to West Virginia sight Conservation Foundation and financial support for exami- nations and glasses for eight Greenbrier Valley cit~ens. Mem- bers were also informed that a new West Virginia service Is the creation of the Sight Research Center In Morgantown. This or- ganization will be associated with and supported by West Vir- ginia University. Each Lions club in the state has been asked to donate $6 per member to fund this project. In addition, applica- tion has been made for signifi- cant financial support from the IAons Clubs International Fund which has as one of its functions support of research initiatives around the world. Robert L. "Doc" Michael, gen- eral chairman for the Antique Show and Sale, presented a re- port from that activity. He thanked all of the members who devoted many hours to another successful show.
