  • Lean and lovin' it: Trimming down a cafeteria favorite Sep 23, 2013 2:46 PM
    When traveling through South and North Carolina, Don Mauer discovered the K&W Cafeteria, a chain that's been around 60-some years. They make a mean macaroni and cheese, but the baked spaghetti, seemingly sold only at their restaurants, became his favorite. Today he gives us a trimmed down version.

     
  • Lean and lovin’ it: Defining a “foodist” Sep 12, 2013 1:24 PM
    Darya Pino Rose likes creating new words like “foodist” and “healthstyle,” and loves to eat and write about food — healthy, real food. Rose also makes lists; lots of 'em (more about that later). Ever since Rose drank her first SlimFast shake at the age of 11, she’s been involved with weight loss and maintenance in some fashion. In high school, Rose was immersed in ballet and, as she writes “... ate less than 10 grams of fat a month (in my mind I ate zero), and was very, very thin.”

    Sometimes Don Mauer's time at the grocery store is limited, so he appreciates it when Prevention magazine publishes its Eat Clean awards, 100 delicoius products that contain no genetically modified ingredients, have no more than 10 grams of added sugar and less than 200 milligrams of sodium per serving.

  • Lean and Lovin' it: Intermittent fasting a key to quick weight loss? Jun 18, 2013 9:21 AM
    David Zinczenko claims that it matters more when you eat — not what you eat — and that you only have to diet for 8 hours a day.

  • Lean and lovin' it: Modernist spin on health-conscious cuisine Mar 13, 2013 3:34 PM
    As frequently said on Monty Python's Flying Circus: "And now for something completely different." Today I'm diving into new waters called modernist cuisine. I recently received a copy of "Modernist Cuisine at Home" (aka MC@H) by Nathan Myhrvold and Maxime Bilet and have this to say about it: If you're hungry, do not open MC@H without a bib or napkin handy because you're guaranteed to drool after just a few pages.

     
  • ‘Soupbox’ book brimming with healthy recipes Feb 18, 2013 1:18 PM
    I'm a big soup fan from way back. Decades ago, Grandmother Mauer guided me through the soup-making process and soup helped me on my weight-loss journey. So I could barely wait to page through "The Soupbox Cookbook: Sensational Soups for Healthy Living" (Race Point Publishing, $27).

     
  • Don Mauer digests “Fat Chance” Jan 31, 2013 11:33 AM
    "Fat Chance: Beating the Odds Against Sugar, Processed Foods, and Disease" by Dr. Robert Lustig, M.D. is not a how-to diet book with menu's, shopping lists and recipes. And, even though Dr. Lustig simplified his explanations to make it easier for non-medical readers, it's also not the easiest of reads. What Fat Chance has is solid, study-backed information about why there's a world-wide obesity epidemic.

    Consumer demand for leaner pork (as lean as chicken) may have led to drug-enhanced pork. Don Mauer learned about this from a recent Consumer Reports study. The magazine, a source I highly trust for product evaluation and information, tested pork chops and ground pork for possible bacterial contamination.

    On Oct. 8, 1992, Don Mauer's Lean and lovin' it appeared in the Daily Herald for the first time. Little did he think that 20 years and almost 900 columns later he'd still be lovin' it. When the column started Don had shed 105 pounds and had kept it off for two-plus years by cooking great-tasting, low-fat and lower-calorie meals. Through the years he's shared healthier, low-fat recipes to inspire others to eat healthy and maintain a healthy weight.

     
  • Lean and lovin’ it: Olive a more healthful option for all kinds of cooking Sep 26, 2012 3:33 PM
    Leave the shortening in the can and use olive oil or butter or margarine (where the words "partially hydrogenated" never appear). Olive oil has become my go-to cooking oil for almost everything, including popping popcorn.

     
  • Lean and lovin’ it: Sorting out organic and natural cereals in your morning bowl Sep 11, 2012 6:00 AM
    What does the word "natural" mean to you? When it comes to the word "natural" appearing on any foods other than meat and poultry, the USDA has no standardized meaning. And that can be confusing for consumers. For those food items, "natural" is simply a marketing tool, appealing to consumers hoping to purchase a minimally processed food free of "unnatural" ingredients.
