Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth and Nourish Your Eyes

Eyefoods

Sabayon is the French version of the traditional Italian desert zabaglione. We’ve used icewine in this recipe for a local twist – as icewine hails from the Niagara Region, our home. White wine or champagne can be substituted for icewine.

Serve with fruit of the season. Berries, citrus and kiwi are all great Eyefoods choices.

Ingredients:

4 omega-3 egg yolks
3 tbsp icewine
2 tbsp maple syrup
1 cup fresh fruit

  1. Add 1 inch of water to a medium sized sauce pan.
  2. Bring to a soft boil.
  3. In another sauce pan add egg yolks, icewine and maple syrup. Place this sauce pan atop the pan with the hot water. Make sure that the water in the bottom pan does not touch the upper pan.
  4. Whisk the egg mixture constantly; making sure that it does not turn into scrambled eggs. After 4-6 minutes, the mixture should have tripled in volume and create a ribbon effect when the whisk is raised from the mixture. Be careful not to overcook as the mixture can curdle quite quickly.
  5. Remove from heat. Serve in a small glass bowl and top with berries, kiwi or any other fruit of the season.

This sabayon can be enjoyed warm or cool.

Thank you for trusting your eyecare with us over the years.  The Foresight Eyecare team follows the government mandate to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic.  After December 2020 announcements made by the Alberta Government, our clinic is following the revised Infection Prevention and Control policy by the Alberta College of Optometrists.

Patients interested in obtaining eye exam services or eye care products can be seen by appointment only.  Please call ahead, and staff will arrange an appointment time and ask COVID-19 screening questions.  If you have any symptoms of cough, fever, runny nose or shortness of breath, we ask that you call or e-mail us and do not attend the clinic for your scheduled visit.   Within the clinic, please wear a mask and use the hand sanitizer at reception.  Our clinic complies with the City of Calgary bylaw requiring mask covering over the age of two years old.  For patients who are unable to wear a face covering due to medical reasons, the patient can be scheduled for an appointment at a time when minimal number of other patients are in the clinic such as at the beginning or end of the day to ensure appropriate physical distancing requirements.

We are using disposable disinfectant wipes on all surfaces and devices such as front desk counters, chairs, handles in exam rooms and waiting room.  All eyewear that have been touched by patients are continually being sanitized.   Any toys and magazines are stored at this time.  Examination areas are being sanitized with hospital grade disinfectant.  Debit and credit cards but NO CASH payments will be accepted.

COVID-19 symptoms are not always obvious.  We want to fend off this pandemic and minimize risk to our patients and the Foresight staff as front line health workers.   Contact that is closer than 2 m (6 feet) is to be avoided, with barriers in place when this cannot be avoided. We choose to continue to do our work and cautiously take care of our patients with compassion, humility, gentleness, and patience.   It is a challenging and new experience for many of us, so let‘s support each other and prevent virus spread!  Beyond 2020, our focus is on take care of you and keeping Clean Hands, Clear Heads and Open Hearts.   For more information, please refer to the following web pages or phone Health Link 811.
