Dr. Tim Says....
[This is another in our series on the How and Why of Eating Healthy.]
Keeping a food diary has long been the cornerstone of many successful weight loss programs because it lets you know just how many calories you are eating. I also believe that it’s a great tool for you to identify where you can improve the quality of the calories that you are eating.
Weight Watchers has used it as part of their offerings with great success. I see this in my practice, with those who are really honest and thorough at writing down what they eat having the most long term success. Why You Should Keep a Food Diary
I love pestos. They are the most elegant fast food. Something green, some seeds, a bit of oil and cheese and you've got the perfect sauce for almost anything. You can make pasta or shrimp like in this dish. You can spread it on crackers or bread for sandwiches. Pestos always make you look like a star at any dinner party.
This recipe is gluten-free and low in sodium (salt). Those who are taking Coumadin (warfarin) and those with GERD / Acid Reflux should avoid it. It contains cheese, so those who are lactose intolerant but can tolerate cheese may enjoy it.
Two New Meals from Kashi
Kashi has a really good track record with us here at Dr. Gourmet, so I'm always on the lookout for new varieties from their frozen food line. As I say often, "At Dr. Gourmet, we're all about the food." The good food, that is. Despite what it may seem sometimes, I don't enjoy beating up on the frozen food companies. I'd much rather tell you about foods, frozen or otherwise, that taste great and are great for you.
So when I spotted two meals from Kashi that we hadn't tried before, I was pretty pleased. The first one we tried was their Lemongrass Coconut Chicken. This one is sliced chicken with broccoli, carrots and snap peas over their seven grain pilaf. Lemongrass Coconut Chicken and Garden Vegetable Pasta
