The Super Food is Real Food Movement, and Dr Oz

I'm on Dr. Oz tomorrow talking, briefly, about superfoods, real foods and the movement to know what's in your food and how to make it work for you.

We discuss why hospital food can cause disease, or prevent and treat it, and how to boost immunity and prevent cancer with what you eat.

The biggest reveal is that obesity is the leading cause of cancer: as much as smoking.

And the medical profession is almost ready to hear your voices...almost.

Doctors are not trained in nutrition or weight management; do not feel they have the time to do it, especially without training; are afraid of opening a Pandora's box of problems; are not compensated directly (though that will change with Medicare's compensation this year: private insurance usually follows); and do not want to fail their patients. So they measure what is measurable, and use drugs to treat the Sx.

But I think this is going to change. We are going to cure treating weight problems correctly.

We used culinary medical tools on the Show: a blender (VitaMix!), a microplane zester (essential creating zest and capturing the phytonutrients in the skin) and a wine aerator (to bring up flavor and aroma in red wines, regardless of price point). Plus my great Santoku knife for opening and roasting that pumpkin.

Finally, we made a simple, marinated-for-a-moment anxiety-reducing recipe: Honeyed Chinese Chicken.

You can get the recipe, free, when you sign up for my still-free newsletter , sent once or twice a month, full of information, recipes, recommended products and tips, exclusive subscriber benefits, and BITES™.
