Eat– for Good Health

In our book GOLD STANDARD OF THIN (to be released in January 2010) we expose two diet myths:  The first myth, Eating after 8 pm packs on pounds, was proven not to matter, say scientists at Oregon Health and Science University.  Enjoy an evening snack. The calories in food has nothing to do with time of day!  A second myth, Carbs are fattening, is busted because whole grains, seeds, fruits, and vegetables are essential to good health.  Plus, foods high in fiber fill us up.  It is true that sugary-fatty white flour products and snacks are fattening.  No matter how colorful cookies and cakes are prepared, they don’t fit in the “eat the rainbow” scenario!

    The food network seems to promote new versions of doughnuts. They’re made fresh– part French toast, part sugary doughnut from Nigella Lawson. And I thought Paula Deen recipes were fattening.

    I do love Paula Deen’s voice but grateful she doesn’t cook for me. No doubt she cooks up some darling Halloween desserts, but I’d never fit into my costume.

    Some cooks start with the basics, say a brownie mix, and then add to them. So creatively fattening, but they’re more colorful and fit the holidays. No wonder people gain weight during this time of year.

    I love to overeat on an autumn salad– butter lettuce, raspberries, grapes, sliced Honeycrisp apples, walnuts, and Feta cheese with light raspberry vinaigrette. I can be a great big pig!
