Dr. Tim Says....

CafeteriaThere's been a lot of controversy about whether calorie counts should be a part of restaurant menus or not. Laws have been enacted around the country, with the most notable being in New York City. The legislation has been vigorously fought by the restaurant industry, with them actually suing to block these requirements. I have been saying for years that information matters and that knowing what is in the meal you eat makes all the difference. The real question is, does this work and can it work for you? Information Matters

Featured Recipe

Mexican Style Risotto with Whitefish

PaprikaI had set out to do this recipe using salmon, but when I went to the market the drum was so much better looking. Take this approach when you are looking at recipes - you don't usually have to stick to a particular fish. Generally speaking you can substitute another whitefish for recipes where the fish is lighter and another dark fish with dark fish recipes.

This recipe has a lot of ingredients, but don't let that intimidate you. About half of them are spices. For some folks this may be a bit too spicy and you can leave the cayenne pepper out if you like.

This recipe is safe for Coumadin users, is low in sodium (salt) and is gluten-free. Those who are lactose intolerant but can tolerate cheese may be able to enjoy it. Those with GERD / Acid Reflux should avoid it.
