Diets in Review - Find the Right Diet for You

What the Kale am I Eating?

We are constantly being bombarded with advertisements that tell us what to eat, when to eat, and how much to eat- the propaganda is never ending! So, how do I decide what to eat in order to maintain my new weight? Well, I decided that I would let my taste buds be the judge. I continually try a little bit of everything. When I’m at a restaurant, I may order something I’ve never had before, but my favorite way to try new foods is to eat with my skinny friends – those faithful friends who plan their meals in order to not overeat.kale

Since coming home from the ranch, I have tried, kale, edamame, red quinoa, wild rice (the real kind that is really dark brown and a little scary to the novice health nut), tempeh, seitan, squash, and the list of foods that feel foreign on my tongue both in taste and pronunciation goes on and on.

Now that I have this plethora of foods at my fingertips, I can address that question of what to eat. Here are a few of the staples I keep in my refrigerator:

- Ezekiel bread, wraps, or English muffins

- Fage yogurt

- Fruit

- Turkey bacon

- Galeo salad dressing

- Crushed organic peanut butter (If you’re lucky, your grocery store will have a machine where you can make it yourself)

- Nature’s Path Synergy Cereal

- Silk Soy Milk

- Sliced turkey breast

- Chicken breasts for grilling, broiling, or baking

- Fish and shrimp

- I Can’t Believe it’s not Butter Spray

- Olive Oil Cooking Spray

As you look to try some of these recipes or foods, don’t be afraid to ask your market personnel for help on your shopping adventure and remember to persevere even if he/she asks, “What the kale are you eating?”.

Check out the Diet Blog tomorrow to learn two of my favorite recipes using this list of new kitchen staples, Tuna and Arugula Salad and Not-so-McMuffin.

You can find Fage yogurt at Whole Foods and Trader Joes, I’ve also started seeing it on the shelves of some larger Grocery stores.
