Sounds good!

So, I just got my July/August issue of Everyday Food and two of my favs are on the cover: Martha Steward (what can I say, I love her) and Emeril Lagasse. Kick it up a notch! BAM! How can you not love that??

Now, Emeril's food--of which I would love to sit at the counter on his show Live w/ Emeril and eat anything he makes for me--is probably pretty high in points. Dlish, yes, but oy. Pre-WW to be sure for me. But in this issue, this dynamic duo teams up to create some really tasty and healthy and low WW points meals. A few I'm going to try:

Tex Mex Turkey Burgers w/ Zucchini Salad
Shrimp Salad w/ Apricots and Cucumber
Emeril's Fish Provencal
Spaghetti w/ Bay Scallops, Leeks, and Tarragon
and so many more...

There's also a recipe for an orange vanilla milkshake that I believe can probably be made with low-fat 1% milk and still be delicious. I'll try it and let you know.

And, while I'm on the subject of delicious-sounding, low fat recipes, check out my friend Tammy's blog, Boston Food and Whine, and her recipe for Bok Choy Salad w/ Grilled Salmon, which she adapted from a friend's recipe to to be low fat and low cal. And, since Tammy says she is trying to lose a few pounds and is pretty adept w/ the WW system, she includes the WW points. Love that!!

Hey there! Thanks for the props! So when are you going to come to a WW with me??? ;)

I got the Everyday Food issue too. I LOVE Martha as well, but HATE Emeril! In any case... my one complaint w/ that magazine (and all of hers for that matter) is that they don't include the nutrional information... so you have to figure it out for yourself. Annoying...

PS-- I still owe you the menu from Grezzo!

They sure do post the nutritional content in Everyday Food at least. On that Martha/Emeril edition it is on pages 150-151. The OJ shake has 160 calories. I made it with fat free milk and was PLENTY rich, and I would suggest halving the sugar or even using sugar free substitute or Stevia if you prefer.
