Stupid Snack Attacks

I’M HUNGRY!!!!

When Mr. Hungry comes crawling on into your stomach, all you want to do is reach for a sleeve of chocolate chip cookies or Oreos, am I right?

Of course, doing this is an invitation for trans fatty acids and processed carbohydrates to enter and trash your body…

Don’t you DARE think you’re doing yourself any favors by inviting their 100-calorie counterparts to the shin-dig going on in your stomach instead… They are just as horrendous as the fully loaded originals … To find out why, check out the latest episode of GiGi Eats Groceries!

Mr. Hungry… SUCK IT!

Knead Gluten?

Gluten is pretty much as cool as socks and sandals in “celeb-ville”.

Hey look! Ice pops on my feet!

Wait, what is gluten?

According to trusty WIKIPEDIA… “Gluten is the composite of a gliadin and a glutelin, which is conjoined with starch in the endosperm of various grains.”

Endosperm?

Cockeyed Cookies

If you want to munch on cookies all day long… you can call this number toll-free to get the details.

1-877-IDI-OTIC

That’s right, the Cookie Diet is IDIOTIC and it’s actually quite comical that people can be convinced that noshing on processed nuggets is the key to weight loss.

Check out episode three of GiGi Eats Celebrities for all the sugary details!

Maple Cheese Dill Ketchup Popcorn Pudding

I am on the hunt for some maple cheese dill ketchup popcorn pudding, who’s with me?

I know Selena Gomez is on board and I am pretty sure I can coax Rihanna into grabbing a spoon.

Oh and since Kelly Osbourne has no idea what carbohydrate, protein or fat filled foods are I am sure she would think this snack is acceptable to keep her trim.

Snack time is the part of the day everyone looks forward to, don’t kid yourself, you love food and when your stomach starts growling you turn into a hyena on the prowl or a woman in her eighth month of pregnancy (or Jessica Simpson?).

Check out what a few celebs nosh on when that urge to stuff their faces hits…

♦♦Warning: not all their snacks choices are HEALTHY so don’t even think about following Oprah or Julie Benz to the pantry!

Selena Gomez: Maple Dogs (a corn dog dipped in maple syrup: picture a dog trying to get out of a vat of maple syrup)

Not a good snack idea.

Mike Tyson: Pinkberry Ice Cream (seems like a bit of a girly treat for such a manly man, no?)

Pinkberry prides itself in being a “healthy” treat and while it may be lower in calories than other ice creams, it’s still loaded with sugar.

Kelly Ripa: Think Thin Peanut Butter Protein Bars (with such a ripped bod, maybe these protein bars are worth checking out?)

These bars are essentially zero-sugar Snickers bars. That cannot be tasty AT ALL. Instead mix some unsalted nuts with natural peanut butter.

Kelly Osbourne: Chicken Quesadillas. Apparently she “love[s] the carbs from the cheese.” Clearly she knows her stuff when it comes to nutrition.

Chicken = Good. Quesadilla = Oozing with Unhealthy Fat. Kelly = Not a Nutritionist.

Rihanna: When she is on tour she requests junk food, including noodles, microwave meals, endless chips and snacks and bad stuff. (Does she wish she was a wasted frat boy at 4 am?)

Rihanna is clearly not one to take nutrition advice from either. She would be much better off fueling her body with whole grains and high quality protein. If she continues this habit, her skimpy outfits will look even worse.

Avril Lavigne: Ketchup Chips, Dill Pickle Chips & Steamed Vegetables. (This Bunnie-Hugged Bittie has some interesting taste buds).

Nice work on the steamed vegetables Avril. As for the ketchup chips and dill pickle chips; while I have never heard of such weird snacks, they do sound rather salty. If you want to don the bloated look, by all means, dig in.

Oprah: Garret’s Popcorn. (Is this snack your newest diet endeavor?)

Buy air-popped popcorn and flavor it with herbs and spices. DO NOT, I repeat, DO NOT indulge in this stuff, one cup leads to five, leads to three more chins.

Kristen Bell: Butterscotch Pudding.

Don’t do a belly flop into a swimming pool filled with butterscotch pudding and then proceed to suck your way out. This pudding will essentially make your ass and stomach look like pudding if you eat too much of it.

Ana Ortiz: Uncle Eddie’s Vegan Oatmeal Chocolate Chip cookies.

At least these cookies are a little healthier than sucking down one of those over-sized cookies from Subway or Mrs. Fields. But if you decide to inhale the box, you would take in the calories equivalent to a Thanksgiving dinner.

Anne Heche: Red Licorice (out of all the foods in the world, this is what you choose Anne?)

Pure sugar that will have you crashing and burning after about an hour of devouring these red whips.

Julie Benz: Microwave Popcorn with Peanut M&Ms.

Air-popped popcorn is alright, but the peanut m&ms negate anything healthy about this snack. Throw a little dark chocolate into the mix for a bit of a healthier bite.

Emmanuelle Chriqui: Almonds, Carrot Sticks and Fruit.

High five to Emmanuelle for indulging in healthy snacks that will keep her fueled through a long day of filming! Everyone take note!

What to do, what to do when snack time rolls around?

While the vending machine may look enticing, your cubicle mate’s stash of Halloween Candy may look mighty fine (really? It has been almost three months since that horrible “holiday”), and the vanilla-frosted cupcakes your co-worker brought in, just because he or she didn’t make the New Year’s Resolution of losing a few, may be screaming your name, resist them and instead “pull an” Emmanuelle. Bring your own healthy snacks to work or to where ever it is that you go during the day and actually EAT THEM when the urge to splurge hits. 

Hmm… I guess I should rethink my hunt for Maple Cheese Dill Ketchup Popcorn Pudding.

Rosie, Tom, Meryl & Neil Cooking Up Some Holiday Love

Wait, what?

Celebrities actually cook? Since when?

While whether or not Tom Cruise or Rosie O’Donnell are stirring up a batch of brownies or roasting a chicken (maybe even together!) is up for debate, web sites and magazines always write articles denoting how celebs are known for an “oh so scrumptious” holiday dish that the rest of “us” MUST try.

Well thank you, Richard Florczak, Jewels Elmore, Steven Lecchi, Sevan Azarian, Gary Robins… and all you other celebrity personal chefs out there, for concocting such tantalizing recipes.

Tom, where are your manners! Eating with your hands… common!

Lets have a look-see at what these bad-ass chefs, oh excuse me, celebrities have conjured up.

Rain, shine, hair in foils, getting a massage, we all have to eat!

Bear in mind that these recipes are NOT very healthy (thanks guys for promoting unhealthy eating habits)… but since celebrities do make these dishes, doesn’t that mean they don’t have any calories!?

Enjoy?

 

Mmm scrumptious. GiGi Eats Celebrities.

 

Production Begins Tomorrow!

Tomorrow is day F – DAY! That’s right, filming begins for GIGI EATS CELEBRITIES.

I will be working with an amazing team and I am thrilled to be finally getting this production under way!

For the past seven months I have been conjuring up GIGI EATS CELEBRITIES with Idalis Leon. She is an incredible mentor, teacher and hosting coach and I know that without her guidance this show wouldn’t be what it soon will be! (Yes, I have very high hopes and you all should too)!

So everyone please stay tuned.

GIGI EATS CELEBRITIES will launch February 2012!

Get ready for some bacon, cookies, nursing home food and seaweed!
