Doctor Oz discussed Bioterrorism- Anthrax, Botulism & Bubonic Plague, Marie’s Packaged Food Detox 28 Day Plan, Remedies for Constipation- Why Can’t You Poop?, and Kitchen Diva’s Asparagus Lemon Chicken Recipe. This show originally aired on February 10, 2010… so lets see how we have taken the advice and lessons to heart thus far. What have you adapted from this show into your lifestyle? And what are your goals for the future? Share with everyone in the comment section below… by putting it in writing, you are more likely to stick to it! Here is my update and future goals:
From Dr. Oz’s Bioterrorism- Anthrax, Botulism & Bubonic Plague episode, I have put together a disaster kit in a large plastic bin that I keep in my basement with 6 gallons of water (you want 1 gallon of water per person per day… and you need a 3 day supply), 3 rolls of toilet paper, 8 cans of food with a can opener, a radio / flashlight in one that gets its energy from a hand pump so I don’t need to worry about the batteries dying. I still need to put together a lits of emergency contacts in other states… any volunteers who want to be my emergency contacts across the country?
From Dr. Oz’s Marie’s Packaged Food Detox 28 Day Plan, I am happy to say that I have been shopping the perimeters of my grocery store. In fact, I have been going every weekend to a local farmer’s market and buy whatever fresh fruits and veggies look the best. I have found that if you ask the merchants at our local farmer’s market to give you whatever is the most “in season”, you will get delicious produce at very reasonable prices. I have even formed some great relationships with my merchants, and they now tell me great ways to cook some of their more unique and interesting fruits and vegetables. Give it a try!
From Dr. Oz’s segment on Remedies for Constipation- Why Can’t You Poop?, I have been buying lentils in bulk and frozen raspberries (which are great in my morning smoothies). I wasn’t irregular before, but now I definitely feel more regular and healthy. I am still on the lookout for papaya (it is not quite in season and I haven’t found frozen papaya just yet).
From Dr. Oz’s segment on Kitchen Diva’s Asparagus Lemon Chicken Recipe, I am a bit behind. I have not yet had time to make her recipe, but I did buy Angela Shelf Medearis’ book The Kitchen Diva! The New African-American Kitchen, and LOVE it! I will make her asparagus lemon chicken recipe this week… in fact, I already have the asparagus in my fridge.
