Dr Oz: Save Money On Health Food
Dr Oz shared more of his budget-boosting tips by sharing how you can get expensive foods at bargain prices. He welcomed Danielle Saunders to his show, who is an executive and private chef who has cooked for all kinds of celebrities including Oprah. She said she thinks that with a little creativity and a lot of love you can create dishes you’re proud of.
Dr Oz asked a few up and coming chefs from the young chef’s academy to share their questions. One 12-year-old shared that she loves to make desserts using fresh berries, but they often cost too much. Danielle said when berries are in season, you can purchase them in bulk and store them in your freezer. If they’re not in season, you can always buy fresh berries to use in your oatmeal, yogurt, smoothies, sauces, and desserts.
Dr Oz: Cheaper Salmon
Another junior chef shared that his family loves salmon, but his mom doesn’t buy it often because it’s expensive. Dr Oz said he loves it as well because it’s so good for you, but agrees that it can be pretty expensive. Danielle said salmon is full of omega-3’s, and you can get the same benefits from canned salmon. You can use canned salmon for everything from omelets and salads to casseroles and stir-fry.
Dr Oz: Liverwurst Instead Of Pate
Josh was a former finalist on MasterChef Junior and he said he will soon be hosting a dinner party and wanted to serve a pate, but it’s out of his budget. Danielle explained that pate is usually made using duck liver, which is what makes it so expensive. Liverwurst is a great substitute for that. Josh tasted it and said it was delicious.
Danielle said it contains the same nutritional value as pate and is full of protein, vitamin b-12, and iron. You can use liverwurst as a spread, in a sandwich, or as an ingredient in a dip. It costs half as much as pate.
Dr Oz: Homemade Kale Chips
Next, a 14-year-old shared that she loves kale chips, but the bags of them are really expensive. Danielle said the best way to save money on the healthy snack is to stop being lazy and make them yourself. Just use cleaned and dried kale and then rip it into large pieces.
Place the leaves on a baking sheet and season with coconut oil or olive oil and sea salt. Place in the oven at 250 degrees and let them cook for 15-20 minutes. It’s that simple! Maximize your dollar by using the rest of the kale for a soup or for juicing.
