Dr. Steven A. Schnur's new book, The Reality Diet, has recipes
the entire family will enjoy--including the kids. Packed with
yummy desserts (non-sugar), high-energy breakfasts, and
easy-to-fix dinners, we know you'll enjoy them all, including
this one for Apple Streusel.
Streusels, along with cobblers and crisps, are American
classics. But like most things American, streusel has its roots
in another country, in this case Germany - and Streusel is a
German word meaning "sprinkling."
- 1/4 cup 2:90 granola
- 1 teaspoon brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon sugar substitute
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 2 tablespoons light margarine, chilled and cut into pieces
- Nonstick cooking spray
- 1 large unpeeled apple, cored and sliced
- One container 2:90 vanilla yogurt with fiber (providing up to 90 calories)
Preheat the oven to 375 F. In a large bowl, mix together the
granola, brown sugar, sugar substitute, and cinnamon. Using a
pastry cutter or 2 knives, cut the margarine into the granola
until the mixture resembles coarse meal.
Spray a small, round (5-inch-diameter) baking dish with
nonstick cooking spray. Evenly arrange the apple slices in the
prepared baking dish. Sprinkle with the streusel topping and
bake for 45 to 60 minutes, or until bubbling. Remove from the
oven and place on a wire rack to cool slightly. Serve from the
baking dish topped with the yogurt.
Want to know more about The Reality Diet?
The reality is that extreme diets that promise instant results
just don't work. For one thing, you lose muscle and water, but
little fat, and may seriously jeopardize your health in the
process. For another, restricting certain foods and food groups
deprives your body of essential nutrients. In the end, the
faster the pounds come off, the faster they pile back on.
After seeing many of his patients fail on these kinds of fad
diets, and suffer health-threatening side effects, Dr. Steven A.
Schnur, founder of the largest cardiology practice in South
Florida, developed a new, breakthrough program. The Reality Diet
is not low carb, low fat, or high protein. Instead it is rich in
a wide variety of foods that are high in one key fat-fighting
ingredient - fiber. Not only does fiber stop hunger, it also
significantly lowers the risk of heart disease, diabetes, and a
host of other illnesses.
Flexible and forgiving, The Reality Diet is for real people
living in the real world. With eight weeks of mouthwatering
menus, more than 200 quick and easy recipes, tips for eating in
restaurants and navigating holidays, as well as an effective
exercise program, The Reality Diet is both a comprehensive
weight-loss plan and a blueprint for lifelong health.
