Dr. Tim Says....
Last week I wrote about the rules before going to a restaurant and this week is about after you arrive.
Once you get to a restaurant there’s a few simple things that you can do to not only eat better meals but also to eat healthy.
No. 6 - If the menu says a dish is “fried,”.... Eating Out, Part Two
Healthy Toasted Oatmeal
Ask Dr. Gourmet
Does oatmeal contain purines?
Dr. Gourmet Says....
Oatmeal is high in purines which can cause a flare of gout but a report of research in the New England Journal of Medicine showed that eating purine rich vegetables did not increase the risk of a gout attack in men. It was purine rich meats and seafoods that put people at most risk.
Oatmeal is really good for you and shouldn't provoke a gout attack.
After the Eat - Don't Eat column last week we heard from Dave Smith. He noted that I said that steel cuts oats are not easily available in the U.S. and he sent me a link to the company that he uses frequently to order his supply from: Bob's Red Mill.
I like McCann's, myself, and it can be found in some stores, but Amazon has it (of course).�
