On today’s show Dr Fitness and the Fat Guy had on Catherine Cassidy, Editor-in-Chief of the Taste of Home media group. We opened the segment talking about how the Gulf oil tragedy is going to impact fish consumption and probably make fish and shrimp more expensive. She also talked about the trend to eat fresh and eat local at farmer’s markets. Catherine shared some tips on how to cut calories from your favorite comfort food recipes. She said an easy way to cut calories is to boost up the vegetables in your meal while cutting back on the meat. She also said that you can mix and match some low calorie milk or cheese in a recipe and not really notice. But most importantly you have to learn what a portion size really is – and it’s much smaller than you think it is.  She also explained that Taste of Home magazine and cookbooks feature reader submitted recipes that have been throughly tested in the Taste of Home kitchen. She also said that the recipes are so easy a husband can do it. Catherine also gave some great tips on how feed a large group – she said that assembly line serving works best -with foods like fajitas or tacos.
