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!

New on RoundTV

This is the third video in the 3 part series, A Day of Healthy Eating. This last video shows you a tasty Round dinner, Hamburger Eggplant Circles on Confetti, fit for a cold and stormy night — all while being good for you and of course made out of a variety of delicious and colorful Round foods.

Note: This dinner video was shot during my previous life, like breakfast, while lunch came from my new life, since I lost my lunch video in the move and had to re-shoot it.

Dinner Recipe

Hamburger Eggplant Circles on Confetti

This is so simple that you barely need a recipe!

  • Broil or BBQ a hamburger. One for each person
  • Broil or BBQ a sliced (into circles) eggplant. Lightly brush the eggplant circles with Extra Virgin olive oil and sprinkle with your favorite spice like garlic salt or thyme. One eggplant will feed two people.
  • Cut an artichoke in half and boil it for 30 minutes. 1/2 for each person.
  • Mix together 2 tablespoons of mayonnaise with 1/2 teaspoon of Dijon mustard and a squeeze of lemon juice. 1 tablespoon for each person.
  • Cut Radicchio and Napa cabbage into confetti-like strips, and mix together in a bowl. Cut as much as you like, this is great filler and you will learn to love how you can stretch out any meal with this confetti combination.

Plate Your Meal

On a plate, place a heaping handful of the confetti mixture. Top with 2 or 3 (depending on how big they are) eggplant circles, and then top that with the hamburger. Place half an artichoke on a small plate with a side of the mustard dip in a tiny dish. You may also want an empty dish for the leaves as you eat your artichoke. Serve with ice water, and add some lemon juice for extra flavor.

You will notice that the hot eggplant circles and hamburger wilt the cabbage and make it taste warm and homey. In the summertime, you can BBQ the hamburger and eggplant circles, then stack it on a bun with the cabbage mixture — and a wide smear of the mustard dip. It may seem different, but what have you got to lose trying it?
