Episode Summary

Fit for Life
Pizza, apple pie, lasagna? Impossible on a diet, normally, but Emeril's brought in Jorge Cruise to show how you can cut calories without cutting the taste and make good eating a life choice, rather than just the latest fad. Of course, Emeril may need to do a little more work on the concept. Menu: • Chicken & Artichoke Pizza – Pita Bread Base (Jorge) • Potato & Meatball Pizza – Basic Pizza Dough (Emeril) • Pepperoni Pizza – Basic Pizza Dough (Emeril) • Olive & Blue Cheese Pizza – Whole Wheat Crust (Jorge) • Turkey & Spinach Lasagna – Whole Wheat Pasta (Jorge) • Crab Meat & Lobster Lasagna (Emeril) • Apple Cups (Jorge) • Apple and Cherry Pie with Oatmeal Crumble Topping (Emeril)moreless
