Dr Oz: Anti-Cancer Salad

Dr Oz and his guest, Dr Joel Fuhrman, talked on the show about a new approach to the food pyramid, and how dietary changes could cure migraines. Next, he wanted to share some of his healthy eating tips with Dr Oz’s audience.

Dr Fuhrman said that one key to the system is getting used to the idea of salad as a main dish. That’s because fresh vegetables are high in nutrients, even though they often have low caloric content.

“We’re talking here about the most powerful, anti-cancer, healing therapy foods,” he said.

Dr Oz: G-BOMBS Anti-Cancer Salad with Dr Joel Fuhrman

Dr Oz and Dr Joel Fuhrman discussed the health benefits of G-BOMBS and the anti-cancer properties of healthy foods like salad.

He used the acronym G-BOMBS to help people remember the key foods for a healthier lifestyle.

  • Greens
  • Beans
  • Onions
  • Mushrooms
  • Berries
  • Seeds

“If Americans eat those foods on a regular basis, we’d have a completely different healthy population without these diseases,” he said.

To start Dr Fuhrman’s plan, you can make a great salad for lunch with a flavorful homemade dressing. He also suggested a vegetable soup you can cook on the weekend, so you can enjoy it throughout the week.

Dr Oz: Do I Have Time To Eat Healthy?

Dr Oz asked one of Dr Fuhrman’s patients, Adrienne, whether people would be right in saying this plan takes too much time. She said that your health should be a huge priority, and explained that she fits the plan into her busy schedule, doing a lot of cooking on Sundays and making a midweek grocery run after work.

“We make time for the things we prioritize,” she said.

Sarah admitted earlier that she had to learn to love Kale. She said that one of her favorite meals on the plan is a Kale, Avocado and Apple Salad. “It’s very easy to make, and it’s delicious.”

Dr Oz: Junk Food Vs Pasta Vs Salad

Dr Oz used three cylinders to demonstrate how we fill up our stomachs in a typical 400-calorie meal. Junk food doesn’t have much volume but is high in calories, leaving you craving more bad stuff. Something like pasta is slightly more filling, but also not high in nutrients. But foods such as the Cabbage Salad Recipe give you high volume and nutrients.

Dr Fuhrman agreed that Adrienne is on the right track prepping her meals on the weekend. He said that he believes salad dressings are a key to making veggies taste great. I like a good salad, but I have always thought creating your own dressings was a lot of work.

He also said you can get creative with desserts like a Chocolate Bean Brownie or his ice cream recipe, which sounded like it was a hit with the ladies on the stage. Dr Oz said that some of Dr Fuhrman’s recipes are available on Pinterest.

Comments to Dr Oz: G-BOMBS Anti-Cancer Salad & Meal Plan with Dr Joel Fuhrman

  1. I have a question; I used to eat a G-BOMB salad every day for lunch. Needless to say that all of that ruffage has taken a toll and I had to stop eating salad for a while. What else can I eat that will give me the same results?

  2. I have been diagnosed with mylo-displastic syndrome and because of my low numbers am told not to eat any raw fruits or vegetables because of possible bacteria, even in soft eggs. I’ve been on chemo for almost 2 years. I was on Vidaza for a year and have been on Dacogen almost a year. I have lost weight from my normal 127 to 135 I am now at 112. I need to gain weight not loose it. How can I eat to improve my immune system and gain weight. I don’t like to cook. I lost my husband in Jan. so don’t want to cook for just one person. Have gotten C-diff because I had to go to the dentist and was given an antibiotic. I was given an antibiotic during hernia surgery, Nov. 6th, which gave me C-diff again and almost lost my life. I haven’t had chemo since Oct. because of the complications after the surgery. I need help. What can I do? Thank you for any advise you can give me. Mary K. Webb
