Dr. Tim Says...

I hear a lot of patients say things about eating healthy and losing weight that are simply not true. For the next few weeks I am going to share some of these myths with you and the truth behind them.

Myth: Celery is negative calories.

Truth: It is true that celery has almost no calories. A medium stalk contains all of 6 calories. Itís also pretty good for you in that a large stalk has about a gram of fiber and is high in calcium and trace minerals. Interestingly, celery is also fairly high in sodium for a vegetable at 50 mg for a large stalk..... Weight Loss Myths (Part 3)

Ask Dr. Gourmet

Dear Dr. Gourmet,

Could you reply and/or post some "recipe guide" meal items for Coumadin users similar to the ones you have on your "lactose intolerant recipe guide" window?

Dr. Gourmet Says

You must be reading my mind. This has been under development and was posted to the site the day of your email. View the warfarin-safe recipe guide.

There will soon be an eatTHISdiet plan for users of Coumadin® (warfarin). It will be a 6 week plan that will use only "safe" recipes (those with lower Vitamin K content). Look for it in the next few weeks on the site. It will be announced in one of my daily email newsletters, as well. You can sign up on the home page by putting in your email address (tell all your friends--and your doctor).

Featured Recipe:
Filet of Grouper with Onion Marmalade

This is a lovely marmalade that relies on the natural sweetness of the onions for a terrific topping to a wonderful fish. Filet of Grouper with Onion Marmalade

Featured Ingredient:
Green Onions

The terms "green onion" and "scallion" are used interchangeably, even though they are not technically the same vegetable. They are also known as spring onions or salad onions; both are white onions that are harvested before they are mature. Scallions are a specific variety of onion, while green onions can be grown from any onion variety, including leeks. More on Green Onions
