Dr Oz: Sandwiches: Good ‘Wich vs Bad ‘Wich: Hoda vs Kathy Lee


Dr Oz’s show on The Land of Dr Oz featured a segment with Hoda Kotb and Kathy Lee Gifford.  The two ladies played a game called Good ‘Wich vs Bad ‘Wich to teach everyone about which popular sandwiches are the healthiest options.  Doctor Oz asked why Hoda got to be the good witch and Kathy Lee was the bad witch, and Kathy Less answered that she asked to be the bad witch.  What a hysterical group of ladies!

Dr Oz: Peanut Butter Sandwich

Dr Oz asked which sandwich is better for you: a peanut butter and jelly sandwich or a grilled vegetable sandwich?  The answer is that a peanut butter and jelly sandwich is better for you Dr Oz Good Sandwich vs Bad Sandwichbecause the natural peanut butter has healthy fats and protein that keeps you full for a long time.  Whereas the grilled vegetable sandwich you have no idea of whether or not they are using olive oil or something that is much worse for you when they cook the vegetables.

Dr Oz: Sirloin Burger

Dr Oz’s second group of Good ‘Wich and Bad ‘Wich was a turkey burger with onions and mushrooms or a sirloin burger.  The answer is that the sirloin burger is healthier, because sirloin is classified by the USDA to be extra lean.  Restaurants tend to use a fattier ground when they make turkey burgers to keep them moist and juicy, plus the onions and mushrooms are often fried in butter.

Dr Oz: Rye Bread With Turkey & Swiss

Dr Oz’s final group of good and bad sandwiches were a turkey swiss on rye sandwich versus a tuna wrap.  Dr Oz said that the turkey swiss on rye is the healthier option because rye bread is a whole grain that is healthier for you than a wrap.  Plus, tuna is made with mayo and restaurants tend to give a double portion in wraps.

Dr Oz: Panini Maker & Wine Glasses

Dr Oz gave Kathy Lee and Hoda a fabulous gift basked that included a panini maker and a set of wine glasses (along with seltzer and juice of course!).  A bunch of you have been asking me what brand panini maker and wine glasses were given out, and I wish I knew but I cannot tell 100%.  The wine glasses looked like they were in a Riedel wine glass box, but the panini maker box I could not make out, perhaps it was Cuisinart’s Panini Press?  If anyone else happens to know, please leave a comment below!
