Dr Oz Black Foods
Dr Oz did a segment on Black Foods, because dark fruits and vegetables can help to lower your risk of Diabetes, Heart Disease and even Cancer. The funny thing is that Doctor Oz did not include any fruits or vegetables on his Black Food list! I suppose eggplant or dark grapes could almost be considered black, though they are more of a dark purple color really. Dr Oz’s Black Foods include Black Rice and Black Pasta or Squid Ink Pasta.
Dr Oz: Black Rice
Dr Oz said that Black Rice has a many antioxidants as blueberries, plus it is high in fiberwithout having lots of sugar. You can buy Black Rice for around $6 at health food stores or even online. The black color of Black Rice comes from something called Anthocyanins, which are great for your memory and reduce your risk of Heart Disease and Cancer. Black Rice sure beats White Rice in terms of being good for your health! I wonder what the texture and taste of Black Rice is like. Is it more firm or chewy than white rice? Does it have a more nutty or earthy flavor? If you have ever tried it, please leave a comment below!
Dr Oz: Squid Ink Pasta
Dr Oz’s second Black Food is Black Pasta or Squid Ink Pasta. Squid Ink is good for you because it stops the growth of new blood vessels which helps to prevent Cancer. Black Pasta is considered a delicacy in Spanish cuisine and can be found for around $9 at health food stores or online. I also wonder what this pasta tastes like… does it taste the same as regular white pasta? Please leave a comment below if you have tried it!
