Incorporating Healthy Foods Into Your Diet: Q&A With Katie Lee

by in Bobby Flay Fit, January 22, 2013

Katie LeeBobby Flay Fit Bobby Flay manages to stay fit and healthy even with a busy lifestyle as a chef, and he’s eager to share his healthy eating and fitness plan with fans in a seven-part Web series, Bobby Flay Fit.

 

In Episode 5 of Bobby Flay Fit, Bobby’s friend Katie Lee joins him for SoulCycle class and later meets him in the kitchen to cook breakfast dishes that are totally healthy but seem indulgent. Katie also makes healthier snacks in a bonus video.

Healthy Eats caught up with Katie to talk about how to incorporate healthy foods and routines into any diet.

What’s your go-to healthy snack?
Katie Lee: I keep cut-up veggies in the fridge at all times so that I can grab them with hummus for a quick, healthy snack.

Do you have any tips for cooking healthier?
KL: Cook more vegetables! Think about making a colorful plate. Vegetables have so many vitamins and antioxidants, plus they are full of fiber, which keeps you full longer. I make protein and carbs about 30% of my plate and vegetables the remaining 70%.

What do you eat or drink before and/or after a workout?
KL: I typically work out in the morning, so I have a light bite beforehand, like a piece of fruit, and I make a green juice. Afterward, I like to have some protein. I make a smoothie with protein powder or tofu, frozen berries, a banana, almond milk, flax seeds, chia seeds and a shot of aloe vera juice.

Are there any kitchen tools or appliances that you rely on for cooking healthy at home?
KL: My juicer and my blender. I make green juices daily and I use my blender not only for smoothies, but also healthy soups.

What’s the one food you could never give up?
KL: Pizza!

Make it at home:
Chili Kale Chips
Dry Roasted Edamame with Black Sesame Seeds
Hummus With Herbed Pita Crisps

    something new and then decide! My kids did too. If they really didn't like it they were not made to eat it. But they did have to re-try it every so often. Tastes do change over time.

    Food and diet both are related to each other. So food control is very much needed for everyone to control the diet properly. You most certainly know how to keep a reader amused. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Fantastic job. I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it. This blog about the diet control and food is very much informative and also helpful to everyone.
