PREPARE FOR THE THE BIG DAY” WITH A VOLUMETRICS WEIGHT CONTROL PLAN ~ VENDOR FEATURE: BROOKE JOANNA BENLIFER, RD ON FOX5 NEWS 05.17.11
Tips and ideas for great and filling eating habits from nutritional health & wellness expert Brooke Joanna Benlifer, RD that will trim you down and keep you full as you prepare for your wedding day on San Diego FOX 5 News.

Instead of starving yourself or attempting an unhealthy fad diet prior to your wedding, think of food as a way to increase your vitality and help you be in peak condition for your special day. Studies show that the top 5 most filling foods (apples, beans, eggs, fish & popcorn) each offer unique health benefits!!
Apples, beans & popcorn are great sources of fiber and beans provide filling protein, too. Eggs and fish provide excellent sources of protein and eggs contribute Vitamin D, while fish such as salmon & sardines are an excellent source of metabolism boosting, heart healthy omega 3 fatty acids.
To fill up without filling out, give these easy food combos a try:
Protein smoothie
Fruit & hard boiled eggs
Veggies & hummus
Salmon salad with Greek yogurt on a bed of greens
Air popped popcorn topped with Parmesan
You’ll be looking & feeling fantastic!

Prepare grill for cooking over medium-hot charcoal (moderate heat for gas).

Season salmon all over with salt and pepper, then grill, flesh sides down, on lightly oiled grill rack (covered only if using gas grill) 4 minutes.

Turn fillets over and grill (covered only if using gas grill) until just cooked through, 4 to 6 minutes more. Sprinkle fillets with zest and top each with 1 tablespoon lime butter sauce.

*If you don’t have a grill, you can broil the salmon and use the lime butter sauce.

1 large garlic clove, chopped

1/4 cup fresh lime juice

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon black pepper

1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, melted
