Stella D’oro: an old friend offers a low-fat baked good

Growing up in an Italian-American household, Italian pastries and butter cookies were regular Sunday treats for me. In between those, we also regularly bought baked goods with Italian flair to them, such as Stella D’oro cookies.

Loved these as a kid and now, and they're low-fat.

I crave anything baked these days since most baked goods don’t fit into my low-fat, low-salt needs. So I was wonderfully surprised recently to see old friend Stella D’oro come to my rescue with its anisette toast cookies. Continue reading “Stella D’oro: an old friend offers a low-fat baked good”

Beans the Magical Vegetable

Leave out the salt and you’re good to go here

Talk Diabetes

Beans are a wonderful source of low fat protein, carbohydrate and fiber.  The fiber in beans can actually help slow the absorption of carbohydrate into the blood stream causing a slower rise in your blood glucose.  A serving of beans each day can cut your “bad” LDL cholesterol by about 5% found a recent report in the Canadian Medical Association Journal.  Beans are also a good source of iron, folate and magnesium.  This recipe combines beans and red bell peppers.  Red bell peppers are a great source of vitamin C.  Consuming vitamin C along with high iron foods actually enhances your body’s absorption of  iron.  Another great example of this is chili.  Tomatoes are high in vitamin C so they will enhance the absorption of the iron from the beans and meat in the chili.  Enjoy!!

But I recently noticed a recipe on a bag of frozen ahi I bought at Costco and decided to modify it to fit a low-fat, low-salt, low-sugar diet.

Marinated ahi tuna with peppers and onions and broccoli.

The result was tasty. I made my tuna in a frying pan, but grilling it outside would add a nice touch of smoky flavor as well. Continue reading “Ahi tuna on the grill, with a lime twist”
