Dr. Oz: Cut Costs at the Grocery Store
Celebrity chef Danielle Saunders came by Dr. Oz to talk about how to cut the costs of groceries. She said there are always cheaper alternatives for great ingredients if you’re willing to be a little creative.
Dr. Oz: Cheaper Alternatives For Fresh Berries
Dr. Oz asked some junior chefs to ask Danielle some questions about how to get good bargains. 12-year-old Moira likes to make desserts with fresh berries, but they cost too much for her allowance.
Danielle Saunders said when they’re in season, purchase in bulk and freeze them. But if you missed when they were in season, buy frozen berries.
Dr. Oz: Fresh Salmon Vs. Canned Ralmon
12-year-old Lucas likes to make salmon, but his mom doesn’t want to buy it because it’s too expensive. Danielle said that canned salmon is full of the same Omega-3s that fresh salmon has and if you cook it right, it can be just as flavorful. It’s also very cheap. You can make canned salmon into burgers or put it on salads.
Dr. Oz: Liverwurst Vs. Duck Liver
Master Chef Junior top 10 finalist Josh Reisner, who’s 11 1/2, came by Dr. Oz to ask Danielle about how to make a pate on a budget. Pate is often make with duck liver, which is why it’s expensive. But Danielle said you can make it with liverwurst instead.
Liverwurst is full of the same nutritional value as duck liver. It contains protein, B-12, and iron. But the cost is half for the same amount. Josh really liked the liverwurst and thought it was a great substitute.
