Dr. Tim Says....

Timothy S. Harlan, M.D.Going out to eat is so easy these days, and it's so much a part of our lives that most of us don't think much about it. This is, however, key to both weight loss and to eating healthy. Because you're not in control of how the food is made and what goes in it, it's hard to know exactly what you're eating. For a lot of folks this is where so many extra calories come from.

I have ten pretty simple rules that can help you make it easier to eat well, eat healthy and enjoy life. Eating Out

Featured Recipe

Pork Chops with Bourbon Pecan Sauce
Good lean pork, pecans in a sweet and savory sauce. This is the perfect dish as fall comes on. Both the pecans and the pork are high in monounsaturated fat. Warm and rich, this goes so well with mashed potatoes or yams and the whole dish takes all of about 30 minutes. Best of all, it's GERD-friendly, Coumadin® (warfarin) safe, and lactose free.

Ask Dr. Gourmet

I am on a low salt program and managing quite well. Is Sushi acceptable on a low salt diet?

Dr. Gourmet Says....

Most all sushi will be lower in sodium. You should take some care with your choices because some of the sauces used are high in salt so eating the dishes that don't use a lot of sauce is a good choice. Salt and Sushi

The Health of It All... Alcohol in Recipes

A lot of my recipes use wine or other alcoholic beverages in them. With the cooking process most of the alcohol evaporates, but not completely.

Many people don't wish to use any alcohol and there are alternatives. There are good non-alcoholic wines on the market.... Alcohol in Recipes
