♪ So excited there's food and andie Mitchell is with us. Love having her on "Gma." When she joined us to talk about her inspiring memoir, remember that, she lost 135 pounds and, boy, is she back and better than ever. She's got a new book it's called "Eating in the middle." All about how she keeps the weight off and lives a balanced life. She has a great time and we love having you here. Thank you. Thank you for having me. My favorite is the subtitle. It's called mostly wholesome cookbook. Yes. Mostly because that's what it's all about for you. Balance. Totally about balance. About having foods that you love but eating mostly wholesome foods. Eating healthy most of the time. That is my philosophy, you do it so well and examples here starting with breakfast. This is the all the greens fritata and eggs are a good way to start the day. High in protein and fat. It's going to give you energy and help keep you full into lunch. The stats are pretty great. Your recipe has 253 calories but 16 grams of protein. Right. So you're going to be really -- That's good. Full. These have a lot of green vegetables but you can swap in anything you like. The thing about your cookbook, I'm a little culinarily challenged. You can try. Most people will be able to find these ingredients in their store and it's easy to make, you know. That's the goal. This is Brussels sprouts and Brussel prouds, some people love them. Some hate them. This recipe is so delicious. This is I think Brussels sprouts are high in fiber. Had a ton of nutrients. I would love if you tried it. The good thing here, who doesn't love bacon, gorgonzola. There's enough for you all, relax. I'll save some, I promise. The good thing Brussels sprouts are so good for you but adding something rich will make you feel more satisfied. Have things in mod race. A little never hurt anybody. Add high fiber. I love the little pop of fruit in there too. A good way to add flavor and still keep it high protein. Again, stats on that, 203 calories but 11 grams of protein so another big emphasis on that. Your chili recipe has 32 grams of protein. High fiber from the beans. Can I try this too? Try this. I feel obligated. A hearty portion so for just over 400 calories have you a big bowl. Wow. This is really good. Important in making the cookbook. Real servings, this is high fiber. Beans low in calories and high in fiber. Has a little kick in there in spicy chili is kind of -- You have to make it spicy. Getting a little hot in the kitchen, andie. This pad thai. You replaced pasta with. Green cabbage. You might not think it's delicious but I'm here for you and will try this as well. Try it. See if you like it. A takeover of like Normal pad Thai and did a makeover, made it healthier. Took the carbs out but upped the fiber, kept the flavor. Yeah, let me read the stats. Pretty great again, 21 grams of protein and only 407 calories for this portion. It's not bad. I think it's still tasting really good so you're keeping all that -- well, upping the nutritional value. Andie Mitchell. We love it. Thank you. Jump in.
