Counting Calories

The press of late has been obsessed with discussions of calories in alcoholic beverages and the adverse effect of consumption on weight. The reports have targeted women, despite epidemiological studies that have not shown alcohol consumption to be a risk factor for obesity. A typical headline ran in The Washington Post (January 9, 2013), &ldquoWhen counting calories, you need to think before you drink.&rdquo The CDC has warned that alcoholic beverages may add extra calories and reported that men consume on average 150 calories worth of alcohol a day compared to a little over 50 calories for women, with younger adults consuming more than older adults (

Alcohol is likened to a sugared beverage akin to soda since it is similarly high in calories (one 5 ounce standard drink of Pinot Noir has 121 calories while the other most popular varietals contain between 118 and 129 calories according to the USDA National Nutrient Database), but no more than commonly ingested &ldquohealthy&rdquo juices from oranges or apples. There have been no studies published looking at the effects on weight of calories from different food sources such as wine versus apple juice.

An important study published in 2012 &ldquoAlcohol Consumption, weight gain, and risk of becoming overweight in middle-aged and older women&rdquo JAMA Internal Med 170 (5) found that compared with abstainers, initially normal-weight women who consumed a light to moderate amount of alcohol gained less weight and had a lower risk of becoming overweight and/or obese during the 12.9 years of followup. This was the first study to look at the risk of becoming overweight or obese among initially normal-weight individuals. See page 18 for a full description of this study.

While it is true that alcohol is a nontrivial energy source (7.1 calories per gram or slightly less than a gram of fat) that theoretically can contribute to a positive energy balance and long-term weight gain and obesity, evidence from prospective studies shows that if the energy from alcohol consumption is added to a diet high in protein, low in carbohydrates, the effect would not be as high a risk factor. Data from the first National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES I, American Journal of Clinical Nutrition 42 1985)) found that even though alcohol consumers had significantly higher intakes of total calories than nondrinkers, drinkers were not more obese than nondrinkers. In fact, women drinkers had significantly lower body weight than nondrinkers. As alcohol intake among men increased, their body weight decreased. Data from the second National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES II, American Journal of Clinical Nutrition 54 1991) and other large national studies have found similar results for women, although the relationship between drinking and body weight for men is inconclusive with heavy drinking possibly associated with abdominal obesity. Some studies have shown weight gain when alcohol is added to the diets of overweight persons.

A recent study published in Nutrition Reviews (Alcohol Consumption and Body Weight: A Systematic Review, July 26, 2011) reviewed thirty-one publications. The overall results did not confirm a positive association between alcohol consumption and weight gain. The authors concluded that light-to-moderate alcohol intake, especially wine intake, may be more likely to protect against weight gain, whereas consumption of spirits has been positively associated with weight gain.

When alcohol enters the body, it is detoxified quickly in the liver with top priority. A small amount is metabolized in the stomach, and the less than 10% that escapes metabolism is excreted through sweat, saliva, urine and breath. Alcohol and wine are processed differently than other dietary energy sources such as sugars and starch so their effect on weight cannot be strictly compared. It has been found that alcohol induces an increase in the sensitivity of muscle to insulin and down-regulates the effect of insulin on fat tissue so fat mass decreases. Alcohol does increase the production of triglycerides within the liver but it is not clear that this translates into weight gain when alcohol is consumed in moderation.

A low-calorie line of wines from Treasury Wine Estates, The Skinny Vine, has 95 calories per 5 ounce serving or about 25% to 35% less calories than traditional wine. The winery claims the wines have the taste and quality of full-calorie wines and carry names like Slim Chardonnay, Mini Moscato and Thin Zin ($11 a bottle). Promoted by Christine Avanti, author of Skinny Chicks Eat Real Food, these wines are offered at A wine label called Skinnygirl was launched by Bethenny Frankel, a reality TV star and former Real Housewives cast member. The three wines offered, with an initial production of 200,000 cases, have 100 calories per 5 ounce serving, 12 percent alcohol and sell for $15 a bottle. Weight Watchers has partnered with McWilliams Wines to produce a line of lower-alcohol wines that are currently available in the UK.

I believe low-calorie wine is silly since women who pursue these wines are only saving about 25 calories each time they drink a glass which is no big deal, and for reasons described above, this savings does not translate into significant avoidance of weight gain. Women should not be consuming more than one glass of wine a day anyway. That said, women are frequently buying wine on visits to grocery stores and any product that promotes less calories or weight loss grabs their attention. Sensible portions and proper food choice is unquestionably important to health, but the low-calorie wine idea is an affront to women. This was pointed out by Mary Orlin, the WineFashionista on Huff Post Food, &ldquoWould anyone make a Skinnyboy wine?&rdquo

Further research is needed toward assessing the specific roles of different types of alcohol beverages in weight gain, especially concerning consumption patterns. In the meantime, it is mindless to wring our hands over moderate wine drinking since a glass or two a day appears to have little real effect on weight in those drinkers who are not already obese.

Spud Point Crab Company

Bodega Bay, California is a lovely little town and not far from where my mom lives. When our family was there for her birthday recently, someone mentioned a craving for the clam chowder at the Spud Point Crab Company. Bodega Bay used to only be known for the setting of Alfred Hitchcock’s frightening movie, The Birds.

If you go to Bodega Bay now, all you will remember is the great food at the Spud Point Crab Company.

Spud Point Crab Company is like a mini Fisherman’s Wharf. You can watch as the crabs come off the boats and go right into the cookers across the street. Watch as they are taken from the cookers and placed in the chiller, ready for you to eat.

How about a nice crab sandwich?

Or the World Famous Clam Chowder?

This unique little shop is only 360 square feet, but only good things come from it. They also serve chili dogs, hot dogs, tri-tip, homemade meatball, crab, shrimp, albacore, and seafood sandwiches. Red chowder is for those who are lactose intolerant. Hot coffee and donuts are available in the mornings to the locals and the fisherman. I highly recommend the clam chowder and a crab sandwich. But don’t let the birds get them if you eat outside on the picnic tables. Just kidding. I think they are gone now.

The chef’s table is an incredible blend of a shared food experience, interaction with Sea Salt’s top chefs, and an unbelievable culinary journey, with optional wine pairing by our in-house Sommelier. Witness artistry in its most delicious sense, as our team of master chefs prepares an exquisite menu – perfectly to order – just a few feet away.

Freeman Farm

Farmhouse – Sturbridge, MA, c. 1815 Moved to OSV, 1951

Barn, Charlton, MA, c. 1840
Pliny Freeman and his family lived in this house in Sturbridge in the early 1800s. During this era, farm families were very busy. Besides doing the sewing and the laundry, women were responsible for raising much of the family’s food. They tended large kitchen gardens, planting, weeding, and saving seeds and then harvesting and preserving the produce. They preserved the harvest by putting root vegetables in the sand in the cellar, drying or smoking meats, or pickling food in brine. They also planned, cooked, and then served the household meals. Farm women took care of the family cows as well, making butter and cheese to provide much of the home’s trade with the outside world. Meanwhile, the men in the family plowed, planted, and harvested the fields, made and mended fences, tended livestock, and cut and hauled large amounts of firewood.

Travel Guide to La Rioja

The topography and scenic beauty of La Rioja, though, is perhaps its most precious asset. The region’s ochre earth and vast blue skies, which seem far more Mediterranean than the Basque greens further north, are captivating. In fact, it’s hard not to feel as if you’re in a different country altogether. La Rioja is Spain’s second-smallest region, and yet its diversity of landscape is astonishing. Rioja’s northern border is particularly spectacular – marked by the Sierra de Cantabria mountain range, it forms a natural protection for the vines against the cooler winds and rain from the Atlantic. To the south lie the Sierra de la Demanda and Las Cameros mountain ranges. The River Ebro, running through the region, has a host of vineyards on both banks, and helps provide irrigation for the vines.

La Rioja also boasts some of Spain’s most beautiful and unique villages, including San Millan de Cogolla, Santo Domingo de la Calzada, Briones and Laguardia. The regional capital Logrono is a stately wine-country town with a heart of tree-studded squares, narrows streets and hidden corners. There are few monuments here, but more important to some is the great selection of pintxos (Basque tapas) bars. In fact, Logrono is quickly gaining a culinary reputation to rival anywhere in Spain. Haro, the centre of numerous historic wineries, also has a heady bouquet. Its cheerful pace and compact old quarter, leading to the gorgeous Plaza de la Paz, has some intriguing alleyways with tapas and copas aplenty. Believe us, the hours soon slip away.

Executive Chef Lysielle Cariot

As a self-taught chef, food has always been my passion. For as far back as I can remember, I have been fascinated by flavors, textures, and aromas. Growing up in Provence, I was mesmerized by the aromatic smell of the oils of wild herbs from the &lsquoGarrigue&rsquo, mixed with the scents from the flowers. To be able to play with those aromas and flavors, as well as preparing and combining different ingredients, is why I became a Chef. Cooking, for me, is a creative process of re-inventing and adjusting old and new recipes with imagination, elegance, and class, and making them available to my guests.

While our restaurant is open for you to enjoy daily, I would also like to encourage you to engage your culinary skills and try my delicious recipes at home! Bon appétit!
