Who would you rather grab a bite with? 

 

 

Well That’s Fishy

Everyone associates October with…

A. Kids dressing up as ghosts, goblins, witches, princesses, Justin Bieber… and running through the streets because of their sugar highs, in the pursuit for the house that doles out the BEST CANDY!

OR

B. Adults dressing up as naughty nurses… cavemen… the President or something that shows as much skin as possible. LMFAO – How about a naked Obama running around the street in search of some Gold Chocolate Coins? (You can thank me later for that BRILLIANT costume idea). 

Costume or real? You be the judge!

While you all may LOVE buying MONSTER-SIZED bags of candy at your local drug store (they’re for the trick-or-treaters, right? Uh dude… it’s October 9th)… What you should really be focusing on this month is that it’s NATIONAL SEAFOOD MONTH!

Fish and seafood are “candy from the sea”! Imagine handing out clams and oysters to that kid dressed up as Optimus Prime!

But seriously, fish and seafood are not just delicious, they’re packed to the gills with health promoting properties…

  • Omega 3 Fatty Acids: These essential fats keep your heart and brain healthy. Two omega-3 fatty acids found in fish are EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). Our bodies don’t produce omega-3 fatty acids so we must get them through the food we eat. AKA: EAT FISH!
  • Selenium: You may not have to be as scared of mercury as you once were when you thought about scarfing down a boatload of fish. You see, large ocean fish also tend to have higher concentrations of selenium, a trace mineral essential to human health that bonds to the mercury and prevents it from being absorbed in your brain. (To be on the safe side though, limiting consumption of king mackerel, swordfish, shark, tilefish, and some tunas may still be a good idea). 
  • Fish are also WONDERFUL sources of protein and vitamins such as D and B2 (riboflavin), calcium and phosphorus and a great source of minerals, such as iron, zinc, iodine, magnesium, and potassium

So which fish are BEST to scarf down (because they’re highest in omega-3 fats, sustainable, etc), whether it be in your sushi roll, at a seafood buffet, your kitchen or a fancy restaurant? 

Wild Alaskan King Salmon

Sardines

Sable Fish/ Black Cod

Arctic Char

Herring

Mackerel 

While those six fish deserve top honors,

Tuna and…

Anchovies…

Also deserve some time in the spot light as well…

So what will you be handing out to trick-or-treaters this year? I’m thinking ANCHOVIES! 

Calorie-Free Dessert

WHAT?!?!?!?!?!?!

Okay, okay, keep your pants on. What I am about to let you in on is not 100% calorie free, but it’s pretty darn close! 

How would you like to wolf down that glistening slab of pecan pie that’s been serenading you for the past half hour? 

Or would you rather share your candle-lit bubble bath with a pint of Baskin Robbins‘ finest?

Well start filling the tub because you’re in luck! Sort of…

Morning Glory

(Video Below)

Are you giving that pot of coffee some sexually suggestive glances every morning around 10 am? 

While downing four cups of coffee may suppress your randy side, you may not actually need to imbibe. 

The reason why you may be lagging in energy is because you may have fueled up this morning on…

These energy robbing powder bombs. Or… 

These mushy artery clogging nuggets.

But if you truly want pin-sharp focus and enough energy to compete in five Olympic events, one after the next … check out the latest episode of GiGi Eats Groceries and see how you can karate chop your current unhealthy breakfast!

Body A La Food Network

How many of you watch the Food Network Channel and feel as though your waistline expands two sizes in those thirty delicious minutes?

Trust me, I am right there with you, especially when Giada sprinkles hazelnuts over her freshly churned chocolate-hazelnut gelato and when Duff applies the finishing touches to one of his masterful cakes.

While you may rush to the bathroom scale after your favorite Food TV show (ahem… The Next Food Network Star) to convince yourself that you cannot absorb calories through the TV screen (although I do believe Emeril Lagasse is working on “smell-a-vision”) one might wonder how some of these celebrity chefs keep the pounds in the freezer.

Clearly we all know Paula Deen had a kinky love affair with a few too many sticks of butter…

…but she has since gone to lard rehab and lost thirty pounds in the process!

If you didn’t pick up the Health Magazine with Giada De Laurentiis on the cover, then you missed out on her “skinny tip”… Well you’re in luck because I have the, slightly annoying (because there are NO fancy tricks involved), trick she uses so she can button up her pants.

“I eat a little bit of everything and not a lot of anything. Everything in moderation.”

Giada also hikes, does yoga and paddle boards on a regular basis. Oh and she’s a nut lover (gutter mind returns!). She noshes on almonds when she needs a snack.

You may have noticed (or maybe not) that Alton Brown has lost weight over the past few years, 50 pounds to be exact!

Alton created four “food lists,” such as, “Foods to Eat Daily”, “Foods to Eat Three Times a Week”, “Foods to Eat Once a Week” and “Foods to Avoid at all Times”. To see these lists (that I completely approve of, Go Alton!) check them out here.

The “grill master” Bobby Flay even watches his figure.

He credits Iron Chef America for his tight buns (ah ha, see what I did there – buns, hamburger buns… Ok I am a loser) because he apparently runs around kitchen stadium like kids playing tag on the playground. Okay, okay, he also goes running outdoors almost every morning and takes a chapter from Giada’s book by eating food in moderation too.

“TIME’S UP! UTENSILS DOWN!”

Are you wondering why I didn’t detail the diet tips of say… Guy Fieri? Well maybe this will answer your question!

Awesome.

Alright, enough about healthy eating… The Next Food Network Star finale is July 22nd!! It’s TIME TO EXERCISE YOUR RIGHT TO VOTE: Who are you rooting for!

Don’t forget, Thursday a new GiGi Eats Groceries video debuts!

De-Puff Your Stuff

Pop goes the weasel!

Wait, what does that even mean? It’s kind of graphic if you really think about it.

Okay, but really, have any of you ever felt like you could pop like that weasel? Ahem, Thanksgiving… Christmas… Thursday?

(I think I am retaining a lake)

I’m talking about feeling as if helium was pumped into your stomach like a cheap balloon. 

We’re lucky though, because we can walk around with record-breaking 1800 pound pumpkins in our stomachs (oh thank you all-you-can-eat buffets), and no one, except maybe our mother or significant other, would flinch at the sight of our “pregnancy”.

(Check out my sister and me after one of our huge sushi binges! I’m on the left.)

Celebrities on the other hand are constantly being raped by cameras from all angles causing headlines of innumerable rag mags to scream: PREGNANT WITH QUADRUPLETS!

(Whacha hiding under there Scarlett?!?! Are you picking up a PREGNANCY TEST or… Pepto-Bismol?)

If celebrities took certain deflating approaches, those “gossip gazettes” would most likely file for bankruptcy because they would have no content to print!

  • Switch to distilled water for a few days. This type of water is like a (good) natural disaster on your body, flooding out excess salt and fluids.
  • Pop ginger root to beat bloat. Gingersnap cookies don’t count! That weird dinosaur in the produce section is what you should be noshing on.

  • Use vinegar as a dressing on your salad or just dump it down your throat. This is the only time acid is good for you!
  • Slow down when you’re hoovering in that extra-large burrito, guac, chips and salsa. It will still be there in five minutes from now, unless your dining companion is Tim “Eater X” Janus.

  • Watch your sodium intake. Sushi may taste good with soy sauce, but the entire bottle is a little much, don’t you think?
  • Take probiotics. Not all bacteria is bad for you!
  • Munch on some parsley or fennel seeds so when you eat those onions, you can ward off a buddha belly and turtle breath.

Celebs (oh yea, and the rest of you too)… if you pay attention to these “rules” and you may just go from;

to…

She may just be a freak though!
