Dr Oz: Healthy Lunch Ideas + Dolvett Quince
As Dr Oz pointed out, a lot of people wonder what fitness gurus do outside of their own exercises and regimens to stay fit, specifically what they eat. Dr Oz wanted to share what certain fitness professionals like to pack for lunch, so that many of us could mimic them in hopes of achieving their healthy physiques.
Dr Oz started by talking to The Biggest Loser trainer Dolvett Quince. He shared that one of his favorite dishes to eat for lunch is warm salmon and cold quinoa. To his quinoa he’ll add cranberries and scallions. Dr Oz added that quinoa is the only carb on his Total 10 Rapid Weight Loss Plan, because it’s the perfect mix of protein and carbs.
Dr Oz: Tony Horton & Ruth Zukerman Healthy Lunches
Next, Dr Oz wanted to know what keeps Tony Horton fit. The creator of P90X likes burritos, and loves to fill it with things like chicken, peppers, beans, and avocado. Of course, the tortilla is whole wheat!
Dr Oz then turned to Ruth Zukerman, co-founder of Flywheel Indoor Cycling Studio. She shared that she cycles eight hours a week and has been doing it for 20 years. In order to nourish herself, she came up with a grilled chicken, tomato, avocado, and cucumber salad. If she’s on the go, she turns it into a lettuce leaf wrap. Because of the avocado, she doesn’t need dressing.
Dr Oz said he loves the healthy fat and the protein, which helps her stay full and thin.
Dr Oz: Tracy Anderson Lunch Sandwich
Dr Oz then heard from celebrity fitness expert Tracy Anderson. Tracy shared that she uses gluten-free brown rice bread toasted, with soy-free, dairy-free, lactose-free mayo, grass-fed organic roast beef, and avocado.
Dr Oz said eating protein in the middle of the day can help your energy levels, boost your focus and concentration, and then stabilize you.
Dr Oz: Elderberry Cold & Flu Remedy
If you’re currently suffering from the cold and flu, Dr Oz suggested using black elderberry. He suggested using it in it’s strongest and purest form, as a syrup. It has anti-viral and anti-inflammatory properties. It could fight off the flu and beat cold symptoms. His audience tasted it and shared that it was very good, while none of them said it was too strong. If it’s too strong for you, you can mix it with hot water and lemon. Just be sure to get two teaspoonfuls a day.
