Dr Oz: Eat Sunflower Seeds to Stop Cancer from Spreading
Dr. Oz says foods are the best way to fight cancer, but today he is not talking about just fruits and vegetables! He says there are two groups of foods he wants everyone to focus on in order to fight and prevent cancer.
Dr Oz: Peanut Butter Prevents Breast Problems in Women
Dr. Oz has talked about nut butters on his show in the past, but never in reference to their ability to fight cancer. He shared a recent study that showed girls age 9-15 who ate peanut butter just two times per week were 39% less likely to develop breast problems by the age of 30!
Dr Oz: Nut Butter “Dose” to Prevent Cancer
Dr. Oz says nuts butters have the powerful ability to remove free radicals from the body while leaving the good stuff behind to fight and prevent cancer. Eat 2 tablespoons of nut butter 3 times per week to stave off cancer and for an added cancer fighter add sunflower seeds or ground flaxseed to your nut butter. They are packed with Omega-3s and can help to prevent the spread of cancer if it has already begun in your body.
Dr Oz: Spice Combinations to Prevent Cancer
Dr. Oz says we often do not think about spices to prevent cancer, but in the right combinations they can provide powerful medicinal value to the body.
Every few months take a little of each spice and combine them all in a jar. Use them when you cook or take some along in a resealable plastic baggie when you travel.
Dr Oz: Greek Yogurt Recommendations
Dr. Oz says he eats Greek yogurt every morning for breakfast, but there are so many different brands to choose from, which makes it difficult to know which one is right for you. He and his team took a close look at all of them as they paid attention to sugar and protein content and how well they help with digestion. Dr. Oz then did a blind taste test and these are the ones he recommends for you!
Stonyfield Vanilla & Yoplait Blueberry – Best low-sugar Greek yogurts that contain no artificial sweeteners.
Fage 2% Plain & Dannon Oikos Plain – Highest protein Greek yogurts with each containing 20 grams!
Chobani 2% Strawberry/Banana & Dannon Oikos Plain – The best Greek yogurts for digestion because they contain live and active cultures, which are good for your gut.
Dr. Oz: Greek Yogurt Substitute Ideas
Dr. Oz asked a viewer who loves Greek yogurt to share her favorite way to use it in recipes.
- Substitute Greek yogurt for heavy cream in Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo. You will save 160 calories per serving!
- Replace half the butter and cream with Greek yogurt in mashed potatoes.
- In baked goods, like brownies, you can swap out oil for Greek yogurt. For every ⅓ cup of oil, use ¼ cup of Greek yogurt.
