Health philosophy: “Life is hard, food should be easy.”
Vitamins/supplements: Daily multivitamin with 1000 IUs Vitamin D3; Omega-3 fish oil (1000mg/day)
Favorite healthy dish: Healthy, unfried chicken parmesan: Layer grilled chicken breasts with marinara sauce, reduced-fat mozzarella, and a sprinkling of parmesan cheese; broil until the cheese melts. “Give me that and a pile of steamed broccoli and I'm golden!”
Favorite workout: An hour of walking most days of the week, indoors or outside. “It's totally free, doesn't require any special equipment, and is easy on the joints.”
Secret weapon: An oil mister. Save hundreds of calories and slim down recipes substantially by spraying your heart-healthy olive oil instead of pouring it directly from the bottle. By using a reusable mister instead of disposable canisters, you will save money and packaging waste, too.
