With season nine of The Biggest Loser wrapped up, you may be wondering where you can get your latest Biggest Loser fix. Cheryl Forberg, RD, the show’s dietitian, has a book out – Six Weeks to a Healthier You – which focuses on quality foods that provide a powerhouse of nutrients for the calories.
In this video, Cheryl shares one of her recipes from the book, a Grilled Shrimp Salad with an Avocado Aioli. The avocado aioli has over 20 vitamins and minerals and heart healthy, unsaturated fats. With help from avocados and Greek yogurt, the luscious and creamy quality of the aioli gives you a nutrient dense alternative to the typical bottled creamy dressing high in saturated fat.
The avocado aioli can be used in several ways:
- as a creamy sandwich spread – It would be delicious with a few slices of turkey, tomatoes, and cucumber. Yum!
- a thick veggie dip – chomp on red pepper, celery, and zucchini strips
- thinned out with water for an amazing salad dressing — try it with Cheryl’s recipe, or your favorite salad
If you love The Biggest Loser or are just looking for a quality nutrition plan that focuses on good foods that do good for your body, Six Weeks to a Healthier You is a great pick up!
