The Weighty Issue of Calorie Counting

Chef/host David Jackson and resident dietician Elizabeth Kelsey show viewers that healthy calories from whole foods are nothing to stress over and not worth tabulating. But empty calories, from highly refined, over-processed foods, are what we need to scrutinize. David's trio of good calorie - not just low calorie - recipes reflect this fresh and tasty approach with Italian insalata di cavolo, plus stick-to-your-ribs southern-style beans and greens, both whipped up in the studio kitchen. Then it's off to Scotland for another outdoor culinary adventure. David prepares a lip-smacking Pollock ceviche at low tide, on the seabed of the very bay where he caught the Pollock hours before. Then in another enlightening "Second Helpings" segment, Elizabeth sets us straight about what comprises a sensible diet, how many and what kind of calories we should be eating, and why so many sensational weight loss schemes are just that... schemes. And in his "Earn What You Eat" segment to close the show, David burns off calories in the pool to illustrate that swimming is one of the finest exercises we can indulge in as we age.

The Spices of Life

Herbs and spices offer a bounty of concentrated anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatory agents that are greater than almost any other category of foodstuffs. But best of all, spices offer a superior variety of intense flavor alternatives that shame salt and sugar by comparison. Host David Jackson opens the show in the kitchen amidst a bazaar of exotic spices. Donning his apron, it's straight into a pair of outright delicious Indian-influenced recipes, fresh and easy lamb curry and vegetarian saag aloo. Plus, his own rendition of a family recipe from Scandinavia-spiced fruit compote - that would be right at home in the Madras. The "Second Helpings" segment offers nutrition advice from resident dietician Elizabeth Kelsey. For instance, did you know that cinnamon helps lower cholesterol and blood sugar, allspice regulates blood pressure, the capsaicin in red chili peppers reduces appetite and has anti-cancer properties, and turmeric is a veritable cure-all? To close the show, David rambles the headlands and beaches near his cottage in the Outer Hebrides to remind viewers that a long walk after a good meal is one of the least strenuous yet most enjoyable ways to "Earn What You Eat," no matter where you stroll.

Eating Away at Inflammation

Every recipe in each of the series' episode helps fight inflammation. The saturated fats, sodium and sugar shows teach food behavior to combat heart disease, hypertension and diabetes. However, the episodes about healthier fats, fiber, spices, protein and the vegetable rainbow teach that health-positive meals are also taste positive. But they all help prevent inflammation, no matter what their additional attributes may be. From the kitchen, David has a few culinary surprises up his sleeve, including a seafood mixed grill that offers a taste-tempting, heart healthy alternative to an old English chophouse favorite. After all, which do you prefer, sizzling salmon, scallops and prawns dressed with lemon, olive oil and anti-inflammatory Omega-3's, or fatty steak, sausage, kidneys and bacon with a side of clogged arteries and swollen joints? David also visits Dr. Kari Hortos, Sr. Assoc. Dean at MSUCOM, to learn more about inflammation from a medical perspective and share this good information with viewers. Then he joins Elizabeth Kelsey, R.D. for another "Second Helpings" segment to examine the subject of inflammation from the perspective of nutrition. In another energizing "Earn What You Eat" segment, highly active, relatively low impact competitive sports, like tennis, are excellent for maintaining aerobic fitness and foot-hand-eye coordination well into our 50's, 60's, 70's and beyond.
