Dr Oz: Protein Fights Exhaustion
If you’re one of the millions of people who are struggling to find the energy you need just to make it through the day or week, there is some good news coming your your dinner table. Proteins are a huge factor in keeping the body fueled and feeling great. Now Dr Oz is revealing some of the overlooked protein options that can help us feel recharged and ready to face whatever comes our way.
Protein not only keeps our metabolism going. It also helps us grow muscle. Dr Oz sent three of his fans to shop for the best proteins, in places such as a Butcher Shop, Farmer’s Market, and Fish Market. Here are the results of their shopping trips.
Doctor Oz: Wild Alaskan Salmon
Dr Oz said Wild Alaskan Salmon is a great fuel for the body. His audience shopper picked Salmon, which is one of the healthy fish Dr Oz has featured on his show in the past. It’s also affordable and delicious.
Dr Oz: Rainbow Trout
Rainbow Trout is high in Omega 3 Fatty Acids as well as Vitamin B12. Omega 3s give us healthy fat. Rainbow Trout tastes different than Salmon, giving you some variety while still being inexpensive and healthy.
Doctor Oz: Beef Tenderloin
Beth was the audience member who went to the Butcher Shop looking for the best available proteins. She picked out a huge slab of beef, I guess on the theory that bigger is better. She said she was thinking of her teenagers’ appetites and picked out the largest meat they had.
Though this was not the best protein, that doesn’t mean there aren’t good options at your Butcher Shop. Dr Oz said you should ask for Beef Tenderloin, which is tender and easily digestible. He even recommended eating this up to twice a week to get its full Protein Power.
Dr Oz: Soybeans
Jill shopped for Proteins in produce, selecting Granny Smith Apples. Dr Oz said that this isn’t what he was going for.
Rather, he highlighted Edamame Soybeans, which you can snack on like chips. Kids like them too, and you can squeeze the bottom edge until the bean pops out. Kids do love to play with their food. The texture is crunchy, making them a much healthier option than traditional potato chips.
Dr Oz: Spinach
Finally, Dr Oz said that Spinach can help you fuel your body and your health. According to him, half of the calories in Spinach are Protein, which is great. No wonder he’s always telling us to eat it. He added that the Folate in Spinach generates new cells, while its Iron content helps regulate blood flow.
