What Nutritionists Really Eat

The secret to no-guilt eating? Variety. No platefuls of rice cakes or all-day water binges here. These sane R.D.s know how to eat -- flavorful, healthy, filling stuff for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Here's slimming food that screams YUM.

Nutritionists Eat Bread

"At restaurants, I could eat an entire loaf of bread with butter slathered all over it. I always allow myself two pieces. Often the bread is so fresh that it doesn't need the butter, so I skip it."
-- Ellie Krieger, R.D., host of the cooking show Healthy Appetite on the Food Network

My Favorite Breakfast

About twice a month, I trade my usual whole-grain cereal with fruit for scrambled eggs (one whole egg with one egg white).

Lunch Is...

...A big salad with tomatoes and bell peppers and canned tuna for protein. I have a whole-grain roll on the side.

The Healthy Dinner I Cook Most Often

My default dinner is grilled salmon with saut?ed broccoli and steamed red potatoes tossed with olive oil and parsley.

I Eat Out Three Times a Week

My last meal was at a gourmet pizza restaurant. I had two slices of thin-crust mushroom pizza -- about the same size as a traditional slice.

My Secret for Making Vegetables Taste Great

Saut?ing. I particularly like to saut? Swiss chard with a little olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

The Food I Love That Happens to Be Healthy

Potatoes -- baked, boiled or mashed. If you keep the butter and cream to a minimum, they're satisfying for few calories.

The Food I Love That Happens Not to Be Healthy

French fries. I probably have them twice a month, and I try to share.

My Top Smart-Eating Tip

Don't worry about being perfect. People think if they aren't "good" all the time, they might as well eat "bad," but you can slip up and still have a nutritious diet.

Yes, I Exercise

I love being active, which means I can maintain my weight without eating like a bird. I work out about three or four days a week. Usually, I take a rigorous yoga class and a Spinning class, strength-train and jog in Central Park.
