Anyways, this past Tuesday, in a show entitled "99 Diet Foods Dr. Oz Wants in Your Shopping Cart", Dr. Oz endorsed certain pre-packaged "diet friendly" and healthy foods. Lots of great products shown here, and even more on the printable shopping list: http://www.doctoroz.com/videos/dr-ozs-99-diet-foods
There were two "food revelations" (if you will) that really stood out as WINNERS to me. Here they are:
Vitalicious Deep And Velvety Chocolate Brownies
I must say, these looked fantastic on TV! Dr. Oz also said that they received RAVE reviews from his entire staff. These puppies are only 100 calories a piece. They are made with whole wheat flour, and are packed with vitamins. In fact, Dr. Oz said, as a doctor, he would almost RECOMMEND that we eat them. Really?! Chocolate brownies? Doctor recommended? Diet friendly? Need I say more?
Where do I get them? http://www.vitalicious.com/ , Price Chopper, Hannaford's Walmart (USA)
How much? Online, they are $22.65 for 16 brownies.
Tofu Shirataki Noodles
Ok....where have these been all my life? Why am I JUST finding out about these little miracles? I have a feeling there will be lasting love between myself and these noodles.
Hungry Girl, Lisa Lillien (http://www.hungry-girl.com/) introduced these noodles toward the end of the show. Tofu Shirataki Noodles are made from the root of a plant (Amorphophallus Konjac ) and were originally developed in Asia. They are made almost entirely of a type of fibre called glucomannan, which can help control blood sugars. They are almost totally free of bad carbohydrates. Hungry Girl whipped up a shrimp fettuccini alfredo dish, using these noodles, that came to just over 200 calories! Now thats amazing.
Where do I get them? Asian Grocery Stores, Safeway
How much? It varies, but usually around $2.00
