    Use leftover eggs

    Frankly, it's hard to produce a healthy rendering of a Scotch egg. But we decided to give it a go, because these delicious little calorie bombs are just too tempting.

    Egg whites work magic for 2-person omelet

    Leaving aside anything made with powdered eggs (which don't really count as eggs at all in my book), I've never met an egg dish I didn't like. But at the tippy top of my list of favorites is the edible magic trick known as the souffled omelet.

    Roach column: Exercise-induced heart rate not OK

    Dear Dr. Roach: I am an 86-year-old male in good health. I take a 40-mg simvastatin and a 150-mcg levothyroxine. I exercise three times a week — one hour with weights and one hour of aerobics (elliptical and treadmill). On the treadmill, I go from a speed of 3.5 for 25 seconds to 6.0 for 25 seconds. My heart rate goes from 89 to 170 (sometimes 165 to 178) but drops back to about 89 when I return to the slower speed.
