Dr Oz: Gluten Free Bread Crumbs + Almond Meal
Dr Oz shared that he was going to explain how you can make your favorite foods gluten-free. He turned to Oz Nation for how they got rid of gluten but not the flavor, like Pesto Quinoa Pasta. First, one woman shared that almond meal is the perfect substitute for bread crumbs and has amazing health benefits. She said they have monounsaturated fat, vitamin E, magnesium, and potassium.
She uses the almond meal just like she would bread crumbs to coat everything from zucchini slices to chicken. Cooking it in a hot oven is the key to getting your food nice and crispy like regular fried food.
Dr Oz: Rice Paper Gluten-Free Wrap
If you really enjoy bread, Julie had a gluten-free solution. Julie’s dad is actually a graphic designer for the show, and Julie even makes his lunches to insure that her dad is eating healthy. She uses rice paper as a gluten-free alternative for making wraps. Dr Oz tried one raw, saying that bread tastes better, but Julie explained that you have to submerge the rice paper in warm water first. She then had a bunch of fresh ingredients ready to wrap inside the rice paper for a delicious and healthy lunch.
Julie also likes to deep fry rice paper wraps until they puff up and become a crispy treat.
