Recipe For A Healthier Cereal

What did you nosh on this morning? A huge trough of Fruit Loops… Or are you the type to tote a box of Cinnamon Toast Crunch around with you throughout the day?

Sorry to be the GRIMM REAPER OF FOOD but… those cereals among many others that line grocery store shelves are, well… scarier than some of the costumes you may see on Halloween!

Atrocious amounts of sugar, sneaky, hidden trans fatty acids, fiberless carbohydrates and added fillers all hide in these processed foods and contribute to that “muffin top”, “bagel butt” and “donut thighs” you don’t want.

If you weren’t planning on being a human cinnamon bun for Halloween… 

Watch the latest episode on how to pick a HEALTHIER cereal, if you must eat cereal at all!

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! 

Catch Up With This Condiment

Ah ha ha, totally laughing at the title of this blog post… I am just so creative, no? Can you guess what condiment I am discussing today?

Any ways… As you can tell summer is drawing to a close. No more thong bikinis… Nut huggers…

Sad right?

Oh wait, maybe you still wear these things around your house.

The changing seasons doesn’t mean you’re going to be putting the hot dog and hamburger condiments away though so it would be really smart for you to watch the latest episode of GiGi Eats Groceries.

I expose… and I mean EXPOSE one condiment… and it’s not even wearing a thong? Okay, I have no idea where that thought came from, but go with it.

Check it out! It’s quite scandalous!

AND SHARE IT WITH THE WORLD!

Sweeten Up Your Life, Naturally

COFFEE!!!

You’re probably slurping down your sugar infused beverage as you read this… Are you now thinking to yourself, “no I just put creamer in there so EFF YOU GiGi for trying to make me feel guilty about my drink”… Well guess what? There is sugar in cream too! 

Would you like to jazz up your cup of joe (because common now, black coffee tastes like dirt and cow manure mixed together, don’t ask me how I know this… But I will give you a hint, I am from Wyoming) without feeling guilty about dumping two tons of the sweet stuff in your drink? Then watch the latest episode of GiGi Eats Groceries to find out how!

PS: For those of you who cannot drink caffeine, those herbal tea concoctions and oh so innocent looking smoothies you order instead are also JAM PACKED with sugar! You might as well just walk right out of that coffee shop or smoothie joint if you’re looking for something healthy to drink. Water or plain herbal tea is always best, and I MEAN ALWAYS!

Regular Soda Better Watch Itself! GiGi Eats Spin-Off

Alright, be honest… who chugged about a liter (that’s 400-500 calories people), if not more, of regular soda yesterday. You just couldn’t resist those root beer, cola or lemon-lime fizzy beverages trickling down your throat.

Unfortunately… soda has been linked to:

  • Pancreatic Cancer
  • Diabetes
  • Kidney Decline
  • Miscarriage
  • Gout in Men

… Really the list could continue but you get the picture. Regular soda is not a healthy habit.

FORTUNATELY I have found the perfect and I mean PERFECT alternative for you! Check out the latest “spin-off” video of the GiGi Eats Celebrities web series… I am thinking about calling this web series, GiGi Eats Groceries. Thoughts?

PS: I heard Jason Derulo loves him some Zevia Cream Soda… I think I found my match! Hey Jason, if you’re reading this… let’s go on a Zevia date! ha ha.

Tumble with GiGi Eats Celebrities on Tumblr!

Britney Spears Coffee Disaster

490. 610. 1790.

No. I did not just give you my phone number (although, you could try calling and see what happens! ha ha).

I actually just listed a few calorie counts for some ABSOLUTELY ABSURD coffee concoctions!

Sadly, many of us, including Starbucks‘ spokesmodel Britney Spears, should really be heading to rehab for our insane addictions to these oh so unhealthy beverages.

For more details check out the latest episode of GiGi Eats Celebrities!

PS: It’s my birthday today… as a gift to me, EAT A SPINACH SALAD… don’t take a swim in a churning vat of Cake Batter Flavored Fro-Yo!
