In keeping with the theme of fresh seafood, flavorful dishes and being frugal, I thought another fresh seafood dish would be perfect. To me, another fresh seafood I simply love to use is scallops. You can buy them fresh or frozen, depending upon your location, and cook them up in a variety of different ways.  Sticking with my Mexican theme, I am presenting a dish served on top of brown rice.  You can eliminate the rice and serve the scallops as a side dish or add in fire-roasted corn and make a really nice entrée.

A key message from the U.S Department of Agriculture's MyPyramid program ( www.mypyramid.gov ) is, "Make half your grains whole grains. " We're encouraged to get plenty of fiber, B vitamins and other nutrients by selecting whole-grain food products over ones made from refined grains. Whole grains contain the entire grain kernel - the bran, germ and endosperm and all their nutrients. Examples include: whole-wheat flour, bulgur (cracked wheat), oatmeal, whole cornmeal and brown rice.

If eating smarter and healthier is one of your New Year's resolutions, try focusing on eating more whole grains.  Whole grains contain the entire grain kernel - the bran, germ and endosperm.  Eating whole-grain foods helps increase fiber consumption and reduction of some chronic diseases. Fiber creates a feeling of fullness with fewer calories, which can help curb your appetite. Check the Nutrition Facts label for fiber content of whole-grain foods. Good sources of fiber contain 10 to 19 percent of the Daily Value; excellent sources contain 20 percent or more.  The color of a food is not an indication that it is a whole-grain food.

Grains provide many nutrients vital for health and it is recommended that at least half of all the grains you eat be whole- grains. People who eat whole grains as part of their healthful diet have a reduced risk of some chronic diseases, such as heart disease. Consuming whole grains as part of a healthful diet also can help with weight management. Check www.choosemyplate.gov for daily minimum recommendations of whole-grain consumption based on your age and physical activity level. Any food made from wheat, rice, oats, cornmeal, barley or other cereal grains are grain products.

There still seems to be a lot of confusion about carbohydrates. What’s good, what’s bad, what do I need, what do I leave alone?  Let me make it simple for you.  Hopefully you know that carbs are not the enemy. You just need to choose the right kinds at the right times in the right amounts specific to your individual needs. My new clients are often surprised at how simple it is: Just eat more natural carbs instead of processed (man-made) carbs. That is, anything picked from the ground or the tree is natural, such as fruits and veggies, potatoes and yams, beans, brown rice, oats, etc. And anything overly processed should be limited or avoided, such as white bread and pasta, chips and crackers, pretzels, etc. But, one of the first questions I always get from new clients goes something like this, “What about the Glycemic Index, why don’t you use it?

MyPyramid is a roadmap that can guide you toward a healthier you. It is your step-by-step guide to healthful eating and physical activity. For good health, eat a variety of foods from each food group every day.    Grains — Choose whole grain bread. Check the ingredients label for whole grain content rather than judging based on the color of the bread. Verify that whole wheat or other whole grain is the first ingredient. Also:  Try brown rice instead of white rice.
