Daphne Oz's healthy eating tips

The Chew’s Daphne Oz stopped by Daily Shot to talk about her new book, Relish: An Adventure in Food, Style, and Everyday Fun.

Daphne has been passionate about food for as long as she can remember, and now her focus is on both quality and nutrition. “I grew up the only fat kid in a crazy health nut family,” said Daphne, whose father is Dr. Mehmet Oz. Her book shows a picture of her heaviest weight, which happened to coincide with her high school prom. She calls that ‘the wake-up call’ that changed her attitude about food.

So she told Ali the five things she keeps in her kitchen that help her make food that’s both easy to prepare and nutritious. “The key is to set yourself up for success by having things in on hand that are going to do most of your work for you.”

First, canned beans are an easy, healthy add to stews, tacos, and stir-fries.

Next, canned jellies and sauces add a quick extra pop of flavor to any dish.

Dried Grains such as quinoa and brown rice are whole grains that you can buy inexpensively in bulk at your local supermarket.

Finally, keep healthy snacks on hand. Daphne keeps a supply of treats that will keep her full without packing on the pounds, including cut up veggies, nuts, and soy crisps.
