Dr. Oz: Dr. Furhman’s Cabbage Salad Recipe & How Much is 400 Calories?


Dr. Oz: What Should You Eat?

Dr. Furhman said salad should be the main course. Eating a lot of salad can be very healthy. He also offered an acronym to help people remember exactly what they should be eating. The acronym is G.B.O.M.B.S or Greens, Beans, Onions, Mushrooms, Berries and Seeds.

Dr. Oz: Is It Hard to Do?

Dr. Oz said many people may be scared to try new things or may not want to make the food because of time restraints or, possibly, because the  children are very picky and the parents will not make them eat the food. But Sarah had something to tell all the viewers. Nothing is more important than your health and the health of your family. And I think she is right.

Dr. Oz: Dr. Furhman's Cabbage Salad Recipe & How Much is 400 Calories?

Dr. Furhman offers up a cabbage salad recipe and Dr. Oz shows how much 400 calories really is in terms of different foods.

Dr. Oz asked Adrienne what she usually eats and she said a nice avocado, apple and kale salad is her go to meal. Dr. Furhman, although they didn’t make it on the show, suggested a cabbage salad. The recipe is below:

Ingredients – Salad

  • 2 cups green cabbage, grated
  • 1 cup red cabbage, grated
  • 1 cup savoy cabbage, grated
  • 1 carrot, peeled and grated
  • 1 red pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup dried currants
  • 2 tbsp raw pumpkin seeds
  • 2 tbsp raw sunflower seeds
  • 1 tbsp unhulled sesame seeds

Ingredients – Dressing

  • 1/3 cup soy, almond or hemp milk
  • 1 organic apple, peeled and sliced
  • 1/2 cup raw cashews or 1/4 cup raw cashew butter
  • 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp dried currants
  • 1 tbsp unhulled sesame seeds, lightly toasted


  1. In a blender, blend the soy milk, the apple, the cashews and the vinegar and toss with salad.
  2. The seeds are for toppings on the salad and do not need to be added.

The cabbage salad does not sound appetizing to me at all. Is anyone going to make it? If you do, leave us a comment below in the comment section and let us know how it is.

Dr. Oz: How Much is 400 Calories

Dr. Oz put out three cylinders on a table and poured in 400 calories worth of junk food, which hardly filled the cylinder at all. Next he filled the next cylinder with 400 calories worth of pasta, which filled it more than the junk food but hardly all the way to the top.

Last he filled a cylinder with 400 calories worth of salad and he couldn’t even put the entire amount salad in the cylinder. Each cylinder represented a stomach, said Dr. Oz, and none of the stomachs were full except for the salad one, although each stomach had 400 calories worth of food.

    I haven’t tried this cabbage salad recipe, but I’ve recently been told that red cabbage is excellent for health, so I’ve been making “cole slaw.” My recipe is a lot simpler (2 servings):
    -2 cups shredded red cabbage
    -1 carrot peeled and grated
    -1 apple cored and chopped
    -2 Tab. finely chopped red onion
    -A handful of craisins
    -A handful of raw sunflower seeds
    -Premium ranch or blue cheese dressing to taste.
    Just mix together. That’s it! I’ve had better salads, but this isn’t bad and your body will appreciate all the nutrients.

    I’ve made this salad, with some of my own modifications. I added organic kale, spinach, thinly sliced red onion, green onions, shredded carrot, chick peas, and walnuts to all of the above ingredients…..delicious.
