Dr Oz: Best New Greek Recipes To Whittle Your Waist
Dr Oz said that there is an ages-old Mediterranean rivalry over whether Turkish or Greek food is better. Dr Oz voted for Turkish food, but he invited cookbook author Debbie Matenopoulos to be on his show anyway. She prepared her Greek Lemony Chicken Recipe and a Greek Yogurt Spaghetti meal. Which of these two dishes do you think is your favorite Greek-style dish?
Dr Oz: Greek Diet Health Benefits
Matenopoulos, a former co-host of The View, is the author of It’s All Greek To Me. She said that Greek food is great for slimming down. She grew up eating a traditional Mediterranean diet that was full of health benefits.
When she moved away to NYU, she adopted an American diet and started gaining weight and having other beauty symptoms. Quickly, Debbie realized that a Greek diet was a healthier choice. Now she is sharing the love with everyone else in her cookbook.
Components of her Lemony Chicken Recipe, such as lemon, oregano, and olive oil, have all been time-tested and proven to have various health benefits.
