You might have seen the post from a few weeks ago when I attended Mrs. G’s VIB event in Lawrenceville, NJ to hear Pediatrician Dr. Joanna Dolgoff, M.D. speak about her diet plan and book, Red Light, Green Light, Eat Right.
The plan guides parents and children toward healthier eating decisions and codes foods based on the traffic light. Although the red traffic signal means stop, there are no off-limits foods with Dr. Dolgoff’s plan. Red light foods should be eaten no more than twice per week, which is enough to not make a person feel deprived, but not so much that it will impede weight loss and/or a healthy diet.
There are so many wonderful recipes in this book, and the images are beautiful. I don’t know about you, but I don’t consider any recipe book a good one unless it’s got great imagery. You’d think the recipes would be blank and boring – but not so. Many of them look good enough to be bad, my kind of recipes!
I tend to get derailed when eating out, so I really love the section in this book that guides healthier options at popular restaurants. It is extremely helpful, and your kids can still eat at McDonalds and follow this plan if you do it right.
BUY IT! Go here to find out where you can buy Red Light, Green Light, Eat Right, which retails for $21.99 (prices vary by retailer).
