Spreading the love this Valentine’s Day with your EGG? Virginia Willis’ three course menu is perfect for a date night! February is also National Chocolate Lover’s Month, so don’t feel guilty if you’ve been cooking a little more dessert than usual on your EGG. If you’re looking for something a little more savory than chocolate, try some Roasted Chicken Flatbread or Pork Tenderloin with Honey Mustard.

  • Re: What kind of mozzerella do you use on pizza?

    Buy the block, not the pre shredded. I have no issues that way.

    Glad to see a car like that in manual transmission. That's a dieing breed. Don't think I could ever own an automatic transmission myself 

    Not only Manual... GATED MANUAL!!!!!!

  • Re: Steak night low carb - high fat diet

    @J-dubya No, they don't. Nice try, though.

    Evidence suggests that there is not an ideal percentage of calories from carbohydrate, protein, and fat for all people with diabetes (B); therefore, macronutrient distribution should be based on individualized assessment of current eating patterns, preferences, and metabolic goals. (E

    That is the official position statement of the ADA. We advocate that patients follow a diet that they can stick to and we attempt it for 6 months to 1 year prior to trying any medication unless other risk factors are present. We recommend limiting carbohydrates and if they are consumed, getting them from fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, rather than refined wheat products and concentrated sweets(which we recommend that at-risk individuals avoid).

    Moderation is the only diet that works for people on a wide scale, as these are called "diseases of excess" for a reason. No PCP I know recommends a high carb diet(not knowing what context you mean) and the idea that sugar is "poison" is laughable at best, considering glucose is the only fuel your brain uses. Too much sugar? Sure, it is detrimental, especially if you don't exercise and use the energy you are consuming.  Sloth is the sin that is killing us, in combination with Gluttony.

    Cool logical fallacy with the cigarette comment.

    Cool anecdotal evidence, bro! I never said saturated fats were bad for you, but feel free to assume and make declarative statements. What works for you and your wife diet-wise may not work for others(or it may!) and is certainly not a panacea, as it doesn't account for other issues like smoking or the sedentary lifestyle that most Americans have.

    Also, recommended total cholesterol is 200 mg/dL, not 100. 
  • Re: Fat Tuesday's gone - so what's your menu for tomorrow night?

    Beef, pork, chicken. Repeat. Church is for suckers. Fish a few nights a week too, since it tastes great, not because I must repent. Cloven animals, dairy mixed with meat, surf and turf...
