Dr. Steven A. Schnur’s new book, The Reality Diet, has recipes the entire family will enjoy–including the kids. Packed with yummy desserts (non-sugar), high-energy breakfasts, and easy-to-fix dinners, we know you’ll enjoy them all, including this one for Apple Streusel.
Streusels, along with cobblers and crisps, are American classics. But like most things American, streusel has its roots in another country, in this case Germany—and Streusel is a German word meaning “sprinkling.”
1/4 cup 2:90 granola
1 teaspoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon sugar substitute
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons light margarine, chilled and cut into pieces
Nonstick cooking spray
1 large unpeeled apple, cored and sliced
One container 2:90 vanilla yogurt with fiber (providing up to 90 calories)
Preheat the oven to 375°F. In a large bowl, mix together the granola, brown sugar, sugar substitute, and cinnamon. Using a pastry cutter or 2 knives, cut the margarine into the granola until the mixture resembles coarse meal.
Spray a small, round (5-inch-diameter) baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Evenly arrange the apple slices in the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle with the streusel topping and bake for 45 to 60 minutes, or until bubbling. Remove from the oven and place on a wire rack to cool slightly. Serve from the baking dish topped with the yogurt.

Want to know more about The Reality Diet?
The reality is that extreme diets that promise instant results just don’t work. For one thing, you lose muscle and water, but little fat, and may seriously jeopardize your health in the process. For another, restricting certain foods and food groups deprives your body of essential nutrients. In the end, the faster the pounds come off, the faster they pile back on.
After seeing many of his patients fail on these kinds of fad diets, and suffer health-threatening side effects, Dr. Steven A. Schnur, founder of the largest cardiology practice in South Florida, developed a new, breakthrough program. The Reality Diet is not low carb, low fat, or high protein. Instead it is rich in a wide variety of foods that are high in one key fat-fighting ingredient—fiber. Not only does fiber stop hunger, it also significantly lowers the risk of heart disease, diabetes, and a host of other illnesses.
Flexible and forgiving, The Reality Diet is for real people living in the real world. With eight weeks of mouthwatering menus, more than 200 quick and easy recipes, tips for eating in restaurants and navigating holidays, as well as an effective exercise program, The Reality Diet is both a comprehensive weight-loss plan and a blueprint for lifelong health.
