I want to Buy Now!
From: Joy Waters Tuesday, 3:00 AM Dear Friends, I know the story. You go to the grocery store, fill your cart with a bunch of fruit and veggies (and good intentions) that one week later you throw out as you munch a bag of cheese doodles.
We all know what it means to eat right, but some of us just can’t seem to stick with it.
Even though I was a vegetarian for years, I used to eat a lot of junk food. Then I became the Executive Producer of Tasty and Meatless, a weekly television series that teaches thousands of people how to cook healthy, how to shop healthy, and where to dine healthy. After four years, instead of gaining weight, like most people that are professionally involved in the food business, I am down to a size 2 for the first time in my life! Viewers send us emails thanking us for helping them change their junk food habits to healthy habits in the kitchen. These Video Cookbook DVDs present to you the heart of of our TV series -- the cook demos-- on DVD format so you can enjoy them at your own pace in your own home.
We know how hard it is to eat healthy and enjoy it!
All those new products to buy, giving up the flavors that you love, trying cooking techniques that you’ve never heard of. Or maybe you don’t cook at all and mainly use your kitchen as a storage area for take-out boxes.
And who actually eats NINE servings of fruits and vegetables every day anyway?
We’ve listened to our thousands of viewers and created the Tasty and Meatless DVD Video Cookbook Series to address all those challenges to eating healthy!
These DVD Video Cookbooks are packed withcreative and delicious ways to eat healthy foods that normally you might not prepare. My teriyaki-steak-and-rice-loving, local Hawaiian-style boyfriend now makes great teriyaki tofu. He says he learned it all by watching Tasty and Meatless. We teach all the secrets of making great tofu, including,
• How to drain tofu properly and why you should do it.
• The difference between water packed tofu and silken tofu in a box.
• How freezing tofu changes the texture to be more chewy, like meat.
• How to store tofu in the refrigerator and how long it keeps.
• How to make lower fat salad dressings using tofu
• How to use tofu in place of eggs and cheese for dairy-free meals.
I have personally tasted each and every one of these recipes in all of the Video Cookbooks during the shoots for the TV series and I assure you they are completely delicious. My second cameraman is a self-proclaimed carnivore but he's the first in line when we start sampling what the chef made.
Imagine eating a lasagna that is layered with KALE, has NO cheese or pasta... yet still is creamy and satisfying!
That is just one of the many recipes on our Video Cookbook called Beans and Greens. Most of the recipes have zero cholesterol and are lower fat than their meat versions. For example, normal Alfredo Sauce has 800 calories per serving. In the You Won’t Believe It’s Tofu! DVD, we show you how to make a delicious Tofu Alfredo Sauce with 250 calories per serving. What a difference to your waistline, plus virtually no cholesterol in our version.
Have you ever wondered what is Brewer’s Yeast, eggless mayonaise, or dairy-free cream cheese?
These DVD Video Cookbooks will help you discover new products that every healthy kitchen should have, learn why they are important to the body's health, and watch how they are used in real recipes. You can see the actual packaging of the food products so that you will know exactly what it looks like. This makes it easier to find them when you are shopping. You'll know exactly what the yellow box of ENRG looks like (powder you can use to replace eggs in baking) and the jar of Vegetarian Worschester Sauce which saves you time in the grocery store.
• Learn how to deglaze the pan when making a Mushroom Sauce to make a rich tasting gravy for a slice of your Tofu Rice Loaf.
• Learn how to thicken your home-made Teriyaki sauce with a cornstarch slurry.
• Learn how to blanch vegetables for optimal crispness and to preserve nutrition.
• Get your Daily Value for fiber with one serving of our Brown Rice and Bean Salad.
The Tasty and Meatless Video Cookbook Series is filled with healthy cooking techniques and tasty vegetarian alternatives that reduce the fat and cholesterol in each dish. You'll never feel guilty after eating again once you know how to...
• Saute veggies with water instead of oil.
• Make a tempura batter without cholesterol rich eggs
• Hydrate and flavor dehydrated vegetarian "meats" to replace saturated fats from meat.
• Replace the cheese in traditional dishes like enchiladas and cheese spreads with healthy alternatives.
• Make a breakfast scramble that looks and tastes like eggs but uses tofu for a low fat meal.
You will learn how what you are eating will help your body. Each cooking demonstration is filled with pop-up factoids containing nutritional information about the ingredients.
Did you know that red peppers contain more vitamin C than oranges? Or that 100 calories of broccoli has more protein than 100 calories of red meat?
There are also valuable comparison charts of the fat, cholesterol, and calorie content of the meatless version of some of the dishes versus the traditional meat version. On the Video Cookbook Hawaii's Local Favorites, you can compare the nutrition facts of our Soy Chicken Katsu with the version you get on a local-style plate lunch.
Each recipe is demonstrated by a short video tutorial less than fifteen minutes long. This saves you time, there is no need to sit through an entire two hour video just to find out how to make one specific dish at the end. You can navigate between them and watch only what you want. It shows exactly what you need to do to make the dish taste terrific and have a beautiful presentation.
The Tasty and Meatless DVD Video Cookbook Series contain not only the video cooking tutorials, but also the written recipes themselves. You can choose to view them onscreen or print them (using your computer). Each recipe is provided with a Nutrition Label giving you the fat, calorie, carbohydrate, and protein information per serving size. This will help you easily add the dishes to your meal plan or dietary restrictions.
