Dr Oz: Lemon Juice Adds Flavor
Tim Ferriss says that if you have a dish that just seems to be lacking in flavor you can squeeze lemon juice (or any citrus juice) over the top for a boost of taste. Not only will this make the dish taste better, but it will also lower the glycemic index which will help you lose weight.

Dr Oz: Keeping Cheese Fresh
Greens – Marilee says that to keep her greens fresher for a longer amount of time she removes them from the wet plastic produce bag and wraps them in newspaper. She says they will last up to 2 weeks using this method.
Cheese – Virginia says she loves to snack on cheese so to keep it fresh she spreads a thin layer of butter on the end of a block of cheese to keep it from spoiling and you do not even need it wrap it when you put it back in the fridge.
Pineapple – Mary Beth says her family loves pineapple, but whenever she buys a fresh one it always seems to go bad before they have the chance to eat the whole thing, so she has a trick to help it last much longer. First she cuts off then top then places the pineapple in the refrigerator upside down. This encourages all of the natural sugars to spread throughout the entire pineapple, which makes it last longer.
