Montel's Changes for a Healthy Meal Dr. Travis Stork: And walk us through this animation. We’re really proving to you right now that good food doesn’t have to taste bad. Montel Williams: Correct. Dr. Travis Stork: You can enjoy your meals. Montel Williams: All right, take a look at that. That is a typical plate, you know like half a rack of ribs. You got that ugly little bleached flower roll and a tiny little ugly salad made of that iceberg lettuce, green beans probably cooked to grease. What we want to do first up is replace the main plate and would put fish on a plate. Slice the sweet potatoes and we’ll put some beans on a plate. Then, I made the salad into a real salad, not iceberg lettuce but we put vegetable in it. To make a really good solved salad, you could put dressing on it -- olive oil or just some herbs. We’re also going to replace that roll with a nice soup, and that soup is made of avocado, carrot juice, coriander, and that’s it, a little olive oil. And, of course, I added some wild rice on here to give you another little fame. But just take a look at those plates now, all of a sudden we have a meal on the table. It’s not just -- and I’ll guarantee that the calorie count here is lower than the calorie count of just that half a rack of ribs and green beans cooked in grease.
