So tonight is the Biggest Loser episode that I look forward to all season…makeover night!!! If you have been watching all along, you will no doubt also love seeing the change from week one, till tonight, after the remaining 7 get their entire beings, made over. If you have never watched this show before and want some inspiration to lose weight or just take charge of re-inventing yourself, tune it on NBC, 8pm eastern time and enjoy the transformations. Remember, this is only about 10 weeks into the season–amazing results! For those of you that think it can never be you, you don’t need to go on the show or have Bob and Jillian train you…you just need to get on AND stay on the journey.
I just ate a relatively easy and yummy, low calorie, plant-based lunch. I took half of a bag of Gardein Beefless Tips and sauteed them in a drop of olive oil…after they browned all the way around, I left them a couple of minutes extra–this is because they don’t always get warm all the way through. I put them on a La Tortilla Factory wrap and viola, lunch was made. With less than 250 calories, about 20 grams of protein, 10 grams of fiber and too much sodium, it’s not perfect, but it is delicious and has ZERO grams of cholesterol…of course! Can’t find cholesterol in products that don’t come from animals. My hats off to Chef Tal Ronnen who introduced the world to Gardein products. You can find these and other frozen Gardein products in your grocer’s freezer section.
For more about Chef Ronnen, lowering cholesterol through a plant-based diet, and Biggest Loser tips, check out this article that Carol sent to me yesterday. Thanks, Carol. I enjoyed and am glad to be able to share it. Great job with your own dietary changes and results!!! You go girl. As for the article below, I bet the people at Big Pharma wont like to read about his cholesterol change!!! What we eat has SO much impact on our health, it is going to get harder and harder to blame things on bad genes!
