|Sardines on toast. Mmm...?|
Alton Brown's Four Lists (From Dr. Oz's website. Not something I endorse, necessarily; it just lays everything out nicely. Incidentally, cauliflower and tofu are not on AB's lists.)
I tried it once before, but didn't really throw myself into it. I didn't like most of the things on the must-eat lists, such as avocado, broccoli, and most dark leafy greens, and I didn't keep track of my food habits well. This time, I'm ready. I've grown to like everything on the requisite lists. And I'm a better cook than I was the first time.
One "application" (as AB calls his recipes) I couldn't get into was his Sherried Sardine Toast. Sardines, along with salmon, trout, mackerel, and (fresh) tuna, belong to the larger family of oily fish, on AB's "three times a week" list. But I couldn't justify skipping it because of my preconceived notions about sardines. I enlisted my wife's help in eating the things (I wasn't going in alone), and so I went for it.

It's hard to say whether or not we'll try it again. I mean, we weren't wowed, but at the same time we weren't driven away. We do have another can of sardines in the pantry, just waiting for its moment to shine. Maybe someday, little guys. But for now, perhaps I'll focus my oily fish efforts on salmon and trout. (Please, check the sustainability of your fish before buying!)
(Also, if you're looking for a good snack, AB's Ginger Almonds, also from the "Live and Let Diet" episode, are quite delish.)
The Persecution and Assassination of Jean-Paul Marat as Performed by the Inmates of the Asylum of Charenton Under the Direction of the Marquis de Sade (or Die Verfolgung und Ermordung Jean Paul Marats dargestellt durch die Schauspielgruppe des Hospizes zu Charenton unter Anleitung des Herrn de Sade) is a play by Peter Weiss whose title is usually shortened to Marat/Sade. (Whew!) Premiered at Schillertheater in Berlin on 29 April 1964.
