Swap This For That

Seasonal eating is not only good because buying in season is more economical but produce is at its peak in nutritional value and taste when enjoyed when seasonally available. The "Farm-to-Table" movement is not merely a fad but makes for wise choices in what we consume.

Season It!

One of the most frequently asked advice I have is for seasoning foods. This goes for vegetables as well as varieties of meats, seafood and poultry dishes. As a professional chef I have a seemingly endless supply of things to choose from at hand in any commercial kitchen I work from. Even at home it seems that most of my refrigerator and cupboard real estate is taken up with every imaginable condiment, spice, spread, flavored oils and flavored vinegars and on and on. OK, I'm obsessed.

Spring Holiday Menu Ideas

Diet authorities all agree that the best advice for any occasion when you are trying to lose weight involves planning ahead in any way you can. You can stay on track with your food plan with this menu and still not feel deprived. Try some of these options for your spring holiday meal:

  • A lean ham with a low carb glaze: You can either find a lean ham without the glaze or purchase one which has the packet of glaze which you can just throw away. Then simply use a sugar-free apricot or orange marmalade. Or, try a spring lamb....
  • Lamb is generally a lean cut of meat and the tenderloin cut is especially lean. Instead of the sweet high carb traditional mint jelly, try a succulent spring lamb smothered generously with fresh herbs like fresh thyme, rosemary and fresh garlic. The fresh herbs make this a tantalizing taste pleasure.
  • Instead of high calorie mashed potatoes try the low calorie yet tasty Mashed Cauliflower recipe. It's taste tested and loved by many and it's a viable substitute for the traditional white mashed potatoes. Check it out: http://lowcarbdiets.about.com/od/lowcarbsidedishes/r/cauliflowermash.htm
  • For vegetables have something special with some tender spring asparagus with Parmesan cheese, lemon zest and olive oil, cooked till tender or even over roasted.
  • Don't forget to have a crispy green salad with your meal. There are numerous low-fat and low-carb dressings dressing available almost anywhere these days without sacrificing taste. WaldenFarms.com has some great options to really save you both carbs and calories.

For motivation consider this quote by James Gordon: It's not that some people have willpower and some don't. It's that some people are ready to change and others are not. Are you ready to make healthier choices? And at the very least consider this holiday a maintenance day and just strive not to overeat.

Turkey Chili

Chili has always been a mainstay for big holiday game times such as Super Bowl Sunday. Here's a Turkey Chili without the high carb beans although you can always add beans for half the batch and save them for those not on a low carb plan.

Low Carb French Toast

The hardest meal for a low carb dieter is usually breakfast. But how many eggs can a person eat in a week? Thank goodness for Julian Bakery (available online: http://www.julianbakery.com/smart-carb/?gclid=CKm6udiQ-rQCFSXZQgod7mIA3Q and at some better health food stores). Note their products are a bit on the pricey side but the good news is when they are frozen they can keep a long time. Most of them can fit easily into a low carb diet plan and many are also high in protein and fiber. They offer several low carb breads that are quite tasty although some people say they do need some "doctoring up."
