Dr Oz’s segment called Eat More, Weigh Less gave some great tips for how we can eat more food and still weigh less with some Simple Substitutions. Doctor Oz gave a tip for how to eat more pasta by replacing regular pasta with Shirataki Noodles and how to replace sour cream onion dip and chips with a delicious Greek Yogurt Onion Dip Recipe. This is definitely a segment worth sharing with your friends and families!
Dr Oz: Shirataki Noodles – Eat More, Weigh Less
Dr Oz said that Shirataki Noodles are made of Glucomannan, which is a dietary fiber, along with tofu. How wonderful is that – Tofu Noodles!!! Shirataki Noodles come from Japan and you can find them in the produce section next to the tofu. I have tried them before in soup recipes, and they are delicious. You usually will find them in plastic bags full of liquid and noodles. Dr Oz said that you can have 5 cups of Shirataki Noodles for the same amount of calories as just one cup of regular pasta, because there is only 40 calories in Shirataki Pasta!
Dr Oz: Onion Dip Recipe with Greek Yogurt – Eat More, Weigh Less
Dr Oz gave another simple substitute for a healthy dip, since many of us love to eat Onion Dip and Chips. Instead of making your onion dip out of sour cream, try using Greek Yogurt and mixing it with a packet of low sodium onion dip mix. Dr Oz’s Greek Yogurt Onion Dip recipe is lower in fat because the Greek Yogurt is less fattening than sour cream, but it still has the nice thick consistency that we love in a dip. You can have 6 TB of Dr Oz’s Healthy Onion Dip for the same amount of calories as you find in just 2 TB of Sour Cream Dip. And of course, avoid regular greasy chips which can be very fattening and instead use baked chips.
