A Round Way to Gather food

Another day and another trip to the local produce store with Tommy Girl–my furry Greyhound friend. Out in the world, we gathered a backpack full of fresh Round food and got exercise and a happy dog all at the same time.

Hearty, Homey and Healthy

Corn on the cob, Lima beans with red peppers, shrimp with green onions and basil, purple baby potatoes with garlic,  basil and “I Can’t believe It’s Not Butter,” and a salad mixed with radicchio–topped with my popular–according to viewers–Easy Delicious Everybody Loves Salad Dressing.

Easy Delicious Desert

On your mark, get ready, dice one Manilla mango, one red Pluot and place in a bowl. Pour in one shot of Grand Marnier. Let chill for at least one hour.

Serve in a pretty bowl or glass so you can slurp the juice at the end–and do the extra touch with a fresh garnish of mint leaves.

Shop Along and Eat Like Me

In this Video, you’ll follow me and my Greyhound on a healthy hunting, gathering and eating adventure to my favorite produce place–and beyond.

Eat Healthy By Cooking at Home

Prepare food ahead of timeWhy Cook at Home?

To make sure you know what you are eating, it’s best to be your own cook in your own kitchen. To do this, you’ll need to go food shopping.

before Shopping

Before shopping, it’s smart to create a menu for your week. Look through cookbooks, search for online menus such as ones at the Food Network or any other favorites you come across. Then make a shopping list so you buy what you need, instead of what tempts you as you innocently cruise the shelves.

Choose recipes that include some of the same ingredients. That way you can use all the ingredient you buy and won’t waste any food.

Shop Ahead of Time

Get your groceries in advance so you have a stocked fridge and pantry before the week begins. If you know it’s going to be a hectic week, buy some partially prepared food that requires only a little bit of work to make. Just read the ingredients to make sure they’re healthy.

Prepare Your food Ahead of Time

A great idea is to prepare as much food over the weekend for the week. You can chop vegetables, cook chicken for salads, hard boil eggs, chop vegetables , marinate meat for the next day, and make a batch of brown or wild rice. This will make is easy to put together a meal during any day of the week.

Cook more than one meal at a time. If you’re already grilling or baking chicken, make extra and freeze half or place meal-sized portions in air-tight containers for another day.

Freeze Food For Later

Freezing food is a one more way to have prepared food on hand. But be sure to label your containers and bags of food so you know what they contain. If you are one of those neat and tidy organized people, you can even keep a list so you can see exactly what is in your freezer. And remember to wrap food tightly and also leave some space between frozen items so cold air can circulate around them.

On a Diet? Avoid These!

No 100 Calorie Snacks Packs: These pre-portioned packs may be dangerous to healthy eating people. Researchers from the Netherlands discovered that giving TV-distracted students either two big bags of chips or several smaller ones, caused those with the portion-controlled bags to eat double the chips. It turns out that past research illustrated that people eat less food when they can see what they’ve already consumed. So stick with the real thing, also known as Round food.

No Reduced fat, Fat-free and Sugar-free Snacks: These are not always low calorie treats. When a snack touts being a reduced fat treat, it may only be reduced by a few calories. Plus, it turns out that dieters often think they can have twice as many of something that is reduced. This is one reason to stick with naturally Round foods. There will be no denial; an apple is always an apple.

No Drinking Calories: Sweet drinks like lattés, sugary tea, and adult beverages will add to your caloric intake. Just because they are liquid and no chewing is involved, don’t be fooled into thinking they are void of calories. The Round way to drink healthfully is to drink a lot of water.

No Mondo Snacks: Although you want to eat 2 to 3 small snacks every day, you don’t want to eat too big of snacks. This also means eating small meals to balance your snacks. A meal and a snack should be 2 different sizes! A meal should be about 3 times that of a snack. Spread these out so that they are 2 hours apart, and as a Round rule, avoid energy bars and other candy-like snacks.

No Fatty Proteins: Fatty meats and fish are not as healthy as their leaner relatives. A Round way to eat is to also eat less meat, more tofu from the Round soy bean, eggs (more whites than yolks), beans and fish. A good Round way to eat proteins is to eat a variety, smaller portions, and stick with the leanest version possible to avoid twice the calories.

No Fat-reduced Salad Dressing: Forget about fat-free and reduced fat salad dressing! The fat they omitted just gets replaced with sugar. It is sugar, fat and salt that people get addicted to, so don’t fall prey to manufacturer’s seductive ways. Try my salad dressing on RoundTV. It is delicious, easy to make, everybody loves it and it has a balanced mix of healthy fat, citrus and flavor!

No Baked Chips: Duh! These are lower on the fat scale, but there is little nutrition in them. They’re lower in fat. Instead, try popcorn from the Round Corn kernel. Add a little salt and crunch away! The healthiest is oil-free microwave popcorn, airpopped , popped in olive or canola oil. Plus, this Round food is full of fiber!
