Tune in this Tuesday, March 1, to Rachael Ray for the behind-the-scenes of your favorite magazine columns. The guests will include David Zinczenko, the editor-in-chief of Men’s Health. Zinczenko is the author of the Eat This, Not That books and is one of the creators of The Abs Diet.
Zinczenko was recently criticized for re-publishing old Men’s Health articles under his own name, but we doubt that Rachael will be bringing that up on Tuesday’s show. Instead, he’ll be sharing a tips from Eat This, Not That. It may make you reconsider some of your favorite foods. Plus, get a great recipe for chicken with oranges macron almond rice.
I’m the best at keeping secrets. All my friends know this, and so I’m the first one that they come running to with some juicy gossip. But sometimes, I need to share. Not just for me, but for your benefit too.
The editor-in-chief of Men’s Health magazine, has a new book out that goes deep inside the very secretive world of restaurant food. You will be amazed and disgusted and hopefully, motivated to make some better choices.
A secret that I have to share though, is that as a former restaurant owner, it was our mission to inject so much fat into our foods, that you would feel as satisfied as a well-fed baby, and return to our restaurant again and again. How do we do that? Well, for one, we would use butters and oils that have higher than average saturation levels, which allows them to cook for longer at higher temperatures without burning. Yep, you heard me right. A tablespoon of restaurant oil has even more fat than the oil you use at home. We also would use cream in places you have never even heard of. Oh, and that asian vinaigrette that sounds so low-cal? Um, sorry, but we used Mayonnaise as the first ingredient.
So yes, better food choices start with full disclosure, and you, dear dining out consumer, have every right to ask to see the recipe.
