Dr Oz’s Snack Attack: Power Plate, Skinny Dip & Pizza Pocket Recipes

Dr Oz’s Snack Attack

It’s truly the American dream. We all want to be able to eat more and still lose weight, which is exactly what Dr Oz gave his audience permission to do on the show. The key, he said, is all in the timing, and he suggested eating an afternoon snack about two hours before your dinnertime. Check out his recipes for the Prosciutto Power Plate, Mini Pizza Pocket, Cheese & Apple Sandwich, and Skinny Dip & Chips.

When eaten at the right times in your body’s daily rhythms, snacks can help your body burn fat much more efficiently. Eating a snack every evening, one to two hours before dinner, can help you lose an extra eight pounds per year.

Dr Oz: How Snacks Burn Fat

Dr Oz's Snack Attack: Prosciutto Power Plate Recipe

Dr Oz shared delicious 200 calorie snack ideas, including a Prosciutto Power Plate recipe.

To learn more about this, Dr Oz enlisted audience member Tianna, who said she’d love to go down at least one dress size. She wanted to feel more fabulous, and what better way to do that than enjoying favorite snacks?

Before sharing his awesome snack ideas, Dr Oz explained to Tianna how the concept works. He had her bite into a deviled egg, and he showed an animation of what happens in your body once the egg travels through the esophagus and intestine. The protein makes its way through your digestive system, nourishing the important bacteria and breaking down the food that’s already in your system. Eating the right types of snacks can help your body flush the good and the bad stuff out.

Dr Oz Snack Rules

When looking for the perfect pre-dinner snack, Dr Oz had a few simple rules about what to look for. Snacks should have:

  • No more than 200 calories
  • 10 grams Protein
  • 6 grams Fiber

Dr Oz: Prosciutto Power Plate Recipe

Are you ready to start cooking up some tasty afternoon treats? If you need suggestions, Dr Oz shared some great ideas to get you started. First on his list was the Prosciutto Power Plate.

Ingredients

  • 1 slice Prosciutto
  • One stick Mozzarella String Cheese
  • 2 Olives
  • 3/4 cup Zucchini, sliced
  • 1/3 cup Chickpeas

Directions

  1. Roll your Prosciutto slice around the string cheese.
  2. Alternate bites of the wrap with the veggies on the side.

That sounds tasty, and it’s Dr Oz approved!

Mini Pizza Pocket Recipe: Dr Oz

Americans love their pizza, and this next list item is a healthy take on one of our favorite foods.

Ingredients

  • 1 small Whole Wheat Pita Pocket
  • 1 ounce Mozzarella Cheese
  • 2 tablespoons Marinara Sauce
  • 1 cup Spinach
  • 2 slices Onion

Directions

  1. Spread sauce inside pita.
  2. Add cheese, spinach, and onion.
  3. Bake in a toaster oven.
  4. When the cheese melts, it’s done!

Sounds tasty! This could be a healthier alternative to English Muffin pizzas. Tianna gave it her seal of approval.

Dr Oz: Skinny Dip & Chips Recipe

Fueling your metabolism means burning more fat faster, and that’s exactly what this next snack is intended to do. The spicy ingredients fuel your metabolism, while the proteins fill you up.

Cheese & Apple Sandwich Recipe: Dr Oz

Apples have a high water content, which helps fill you up. Lemon Juice also has health benefits. Dr Oz said this was his favorite of the snack recipes he shared, and like the others, it meets the guideline of staying below 200 calories.

Ingredients

  • 4 slices Apple
  • 3 tablespoons Ricotta Cheese (low fat)
  • 10 Almonds
  • Lemon Juice

Directions

  1. Cut your Apple slices flat, because they’re the bread in this sandwich.
