framed and matted by our agains at the great frame up of whitefish bay. we're going to share it with you later. great job amanda. >> i love it. first up, we're in the kitchen cooking with thunder bay. it is one of my all time favorites meatloaf. >> yum. >> some people say it is boring i say it is delicious. and the one we're making today is anything, but base sick. >> that's right executive chef mike stigler is here from thunder bay to teach us how to make a bison smoked meatloaf. >> >> good morning ladies. how are you today? >> good morning. we're good. >> what do you have? >> we have the bison smoked meatloaf as you said. we grind it up with a little bit of onions and peppers and other secret ingredients i can't get into. we smoke it over hickory chips for 3 and a half hours until it is all the way cooked through and we finish it off in a pan to give it a little texture on the outside. >> what do you put in your meatloaf.
depending on how mom made it that's how they made meatloaf. >> what you want to keep in mind you want a little fat contest to keep it moist. bison is a lean meat so we cut it with a little beef. beef naturally has a little bit of fat in it. sometimes people will think bison is a little dry because it is so lean so if you add a little beef it adds a little moisture inside. what we haveng have the meatloaf in the pan already here. i have cut a couple slices off of there. we put it in the pan so it starts to get nice and brown on both sides. you're going to add a little text tour it give it -- texture to give it a little different feel. we have roasted mushrooms.
oven then finish them in the pan along with the meatloaf. we have roasted potatoes. we are going to add peppers and onions to that. >> fancy. >> peppers and onions are very fancy. they are. then we're going to add fresh rosemary to that as well. >> along with fancy salt get that going in there too. get those all tossing around really nice. and the rosemary acts as a the flavor? >> it is. texturally it tends to be more pine needlish. >> do you eat it i always pick it out. >> can you eat it, but it is probably something you will push to the side. we have our green beans over here. we have blanched them a little bit in cold water. one good tip for blanching green beans is to put a little baking soda in the water it will help them retain the nice green
>> cooking partially in boiling water. you get them so they aren't quite so hard and cool them down in an ice water bath and finish them off in the pan as needed. it also helps to set the color so you have that going as well. >> is this true you have it on the lunch and dinner menu right now? it is absolutely true. this is on lunch menu, on the dinner menu and it's something that is really, kind of popular right now a into cooler weather because it is one of those stick to your rib kind of dishes. we have our meet loaf going on the plate there. >> is there not ketchup in this? >> you keep coming back into what is not in the dish. more important to think about what is in the dish. >> no ketchup? >> what we have in this dish is bison delicious and a little bit of a barbeque glaze on the top which you may or may not have noticed which is a close cousin to ketchup. as a matter of fact.
>> what you can do is take ketchup and turn it into barbecue sauce by adding brown sugar a little liquid smoke. >> i just wanted you to know that there is a lot of grandparents out there getting upset about not using ketchup. >> what we have here is bison meatloaf i don't know if i mentioned that. it's one step above meatloaf. >> how about that award of excellence you have won a second year in a row that's fantastic. >> that's due to our exceptional wine list. we have a huge variety of wines. tonight from 5:00 to 8:00 we're having a appreciation dinner party out at thunder bay for that. >> i was hoping you would mention that it is tonight from 5:00 to 8:00.

with the people you coach. they really rely on you for information and support all of that great stuff. let's talk about this 21st century approach to weight loss. we're going to show you amazing results. >> we're able to use the nutrimost technology with 855-burn-fat and we're able to actually individualize programs for each person. we don't all react the same way to a medicine. we don't we act the same way to a perfume. to react the same way to a weight loss program. we're not. this is about learning to eat properly for you and be able to mmaintain your weight long-term by learning how your body reacts to different foods. >> what does it do to help you lose weight? >> we use technology to identify what is happening with the things that are controlling your metabolism. we're able to identify what is off with your system. what we can do to help support
minerals things like that and we're able to identify what foods work best with your body. we're able to give you a individualized plan on how to get the weight off and reset the metabolism and teach you to identify trigger foods. foods you may think are fine to eat, but when you eat it your body doesn't respond to it well. >> then you put on weight. obviously losing weight is huge for how people lose they feel, their energy level. some things we want to talk about are diabetes. i know you work closely and consult peoples doctors too. let's talk about hawk, we have four great people struggling with diabetes and medication. he is a military vet right? >> yes and he was struggling with high blood pressure, diabetes. most of these things if we make lifestyle changes we can get around those diagnosis.
helping you identify the issues and work with your physician to get you off of medications. we will not be removing you from medications, but we'll be working with your physician. hawk was able to lose 52 pounds, stopped taking his diabetes medications, blood pressure mede medications and lost a huge amount of weight. >> allan another person, same thing for him. he was on diabetes medication for 20 years. >> >> 20 years. a lot of times you take diabetes medicine and you add another medicine because it is not working enough. if you just learn how to eat for your body you can have good blood sugar control. he was able to lose over 40 pounds, stop taking the medication and stopped the battle of having diabetes and having to take medications every day. >> connie was healthy all of her life. this is our next example.
had type 2 diabetes and for the first time felt not just frustrated, but bad about herself. >> absolutely. when somebody goes into the doctor and don't feel bad or realize they feel bad they just feel sluggish we all make excuses, once somebody finds out they have type 2 diabetes and have to go on a daily medicine they are like how did this happen? she came in she's like i am ready to take control of my life. i want to manage this. i don't want to just live it it. she was able to lose 30 pounds and be off of medicines. >> same with lisa. she's a successful real estate agent who couldn't believe it when her doctor put her on medication. she was like how could i have diabetes she did two rounds. >> she lost 30 pounds the first round then decided i'm not ready to stop i want to keep going. she's lost 45 pounds total at this point and still losing. >> and she's off her medication? >> she off her medications.
out. >> look at that young vivacious look, energy. skin tone. the person on the left is not that person. we have to learn how to work with our bodies and need to take control. if we all can have that knowledge to get to prevent being diabetic or on medication, these are four stories, but i have had how many other people come on and physically talk about it here in thetu if you learn how to do it. >> one of the things you encourage people to do is get on the scale every day. we have read studies that show people that get on the scale every day are more likely to lose weight and keep it off. >> it's accountable. accountability. how many times do we go to that pair of pants that is a little loose and now maybe we put 5 or 7 pounds on. if you keep avoiding that or
or my big thing was scrubs you could put 20 pounds on with the same pair of scrubs. everybody is in leggings and things now. so if you stay going on the scale it gives you accountability and makes you go all of the sudden you can't wake up in a month and say where did ten pounds come from, you know it. >> i know you want to say something about the holidays specifically. people can get started the same day. you are encouraging people we know the holidays are coming up it's a good time to start. >> it is a great t you could be through the weight loss portion of the program in 40 days that's before thanksgiving, that's before christmas, the other holidays you want to celebrate and trust me, city the program started on thanksgiving day two years ago and i did it, but, i can tell you if you do it right now you're going to be happy. you're going into the holidays going to love your christmas pictures your family pictures you are taking and you're going to be very happy you did that.
15 pounds during the holidays this will prevent you from doing that. >> you can call 855-burn-fat at (414)269-5683 or visit online at 855-burn-fat.com. thanks jen. >> thank you. >> great to see you jen thank you so much. coming up paying for your kid's college education. we'll help you avoid the most common mistakes parents make. next an important date on the calendar if you're on ?happy music?

makes us very unbias as far as what we're offering and just being able to shop around every year. again they pay us so when a person or when we fit a product to a person's needs then that's company is the one that pays us. >> it's all about getting the right coverage at best price. let's talk about this important date, october 15 it's medicare's annual open enrollment period. if you are on medicare, or if you are quickly approaching that age this is an important date >> october 15 is really for people that are currently on medicare, so, this year is probably and i said this last year and i thought about it when i was thinking about coming on today was that i said last year that this year is the most important year to get proactive. this year is really the most important year to get proactive. >> even more p important huh? >> the plans over the last five years have been pretty stable and steady where there hasn't been a lot of changes. not a lot of companies have
this year all of the sudden, there is other plans that are being introduced into the southeastern wisconsin market, and that are very competitive. and very really worth looking at so. so for anybody on medicare, they really should be calling sovereign select and saying hey, what are these plans? >> and how do you help people? >> so basically what we're going to do is really going to breakdown each person's situation. if they are going to, when they give us a call or send us an email say have, and i'm just kind of looking to save money or whatever their situation is, we're going to ask them kind of what their needs are as far as health prescription drugs, financial needs et cetera, and also, compare what they have currently to what we can offer them. >> so often you save people money. there all the time. that's the goal you know. >> hundreds in a year right? >> or thousands. >> at the end of the day the idea is to give a person the most quality product at the best possible price. >> and it's no cost to the
i know you follow-up each year with the people that work with you so each year you can be doing this evaluation of their plan and their coverage. you explain part a, b, c and the prescription part d plan. and you will do a free part d comparison for people right? >> yeah anybody that is on like a stand alone prescription drug plan or medicare advantage plan we will compare. if they just send us the list of medications and what plan they are currently on, we'll take those medications and plug them into each pla market and compare it side by side with the current plan they are on just to see if there is any way we can save some money for them. >> and this is a big money saving opportunity. >> it's a free service. we don't charge for that at all. >> free service you can do that by email. you also have free meetings coming up. there is two we want to talk about. first are the group events this is medicare 101. >> medicare 101 is for people

>> the colleges determine how much of their money they are going to give you by what your efc number is. the academic performance of your student, so, they will actually you can get them to compete for your student. >> so the fafsa can also determine some of the college funding that you are getting? >> it's determining a host the college funding you are getting from the colleges. >> so everyone really should be filling that out. >> correct? >> absolutely the the biggest mistake is we wish we would have come to one of your workshops before. we didn't know that expensive private college was affordable for us. we have seen mistake where is people have gotten huge financial aid awards and had no idea that their child, son or daughter could have gone to that great college they ended up going to. >> they just ruled it out based on the sticker price. >> absolutely. >> in the past the fafsa the time you could start summiting was january so people had a couple months after the school year started you got seniors,
we're already past that first day that people can send it in. >> what they did was aligned everything so they aligned the application you can fill out your application and financial aid forms at the same time right now. >> is it a good idea to do that right now? >> yes. i mean the thing is somebody came in yesterday, and said, but the college has an application deadline of february 15, so we're just going to hold off and file by february 15. >> why is that a >> well because, financial aid is given out on a first come first serve basis. if you get your forms in in october or november you will get your financial aid award sooner and there is going to be more grant money on there than if you wait until february 15 to turn that in. >> you're getting the scraps.

>> i like that too. >> it's like we just help them walk them through the whole process. this is what you can expect, this is what the steps are, and it takes a way that mystery and anguish of laying in bed saying am i doing everything i can to get the most money for free for college. there is nothing more frustrating than in march or april to get a financial aid award and say what happened? i >> would also say we educate get a lot of that where families would be like there is no way i would have sent my son or daughter to that school, but i didn't know what i didn't know. it's that education process of the workshop and the consultation. >> it's one thing you have said many times on the show before just you know you know which schools tend to give out more. you are very good at guiding people and opening their eyes to opportunities that they didn't know existed. so people can attend your free workshop, there is coming up next thursday the 13th and
