Dr Oz: Flavor Boosters to Lose Weight

Is your family tired of eating the same ol’ bland meals every night? You figure diet foods equal no taste, right? Wrong! On today’s show, Dr Oz was joined by Dietician, Sari Greaves, to reveal the best flavor boosters that will not only spice up your meal, they’ll help you lose weight too. Find out the skinny swap to all those fattening marinades like a Sundried Tomato Mayo Recipe, a flaxseed meal and slivered almond coating and a Chinese 5 Spice marinade.

Dr Oz Sundried Tomato Mayo

Dr Oz spoke about using Chinese 5 Spice and Sundried Tomato Mayo to boost the flavor without the fat in your meals.

Dr Oz: Sundried Tomato Mayo Recipe

Replace mayo, which is a major culprit of calories, with sundried tomatoes. They’re high in vitamin A, C and lycopene. Combine ½ sun dried tomato and 2 tsp of light mayo. (Light mayo contains more water and can come eggless.) Purchase the light mayo that uses canola or a heart healthy base. This combo contains only 40 calories.

Dr Oz: Flaxseed Meal & Almonds Coating

Trying to lose weight? Put away the breadcrumbs and switch to flaxseed meal and sliver almonds. You’ll get vitamin E, fiber and Omega 3s. Combine 1 tsp sliver almonds for every 3 Tbsp of flaxseed meal. The combination is coarse and crunchy and will give you protein to help you feel fuller.

Dr Oz: Chinese 5 Spice

Chinese 5 spice replaces high sodium marinate. This spice contains cinnamon, star anise, fennel, cloves and pepper corns to give you a delicate balance of sweet and spicy elements. Sari says to use a tsp of this spice for a meal for 4 people.

Replace Butter With Chicken Stock

Use reduced sodium chicken stock in place of butter and oil. Sari says the stock adds flavor and lubrication so your food won’t stick together. Chicken stock contains only 5 calories. Use ¼ C for veggies. Just stir it in gradually, using tablespoons at a time.
