We were very blessed to attend the Good Housekeeping party for Dr. Oz‘s new book, “Food Can Fix It: The Superfood Switch to Fight Fat, Defy Aging, and Eat Your Way Healthy.” Written by Dr. Oz with Ted Spiker and the Editors of Dr. Oz’s magazine, “The Good Life”, the book is a must-have primer for every one serious about maximizing their health.
As Dr. Oz explains, “food can either be healing or create mayhem in your body.” The choice is ours. What we eat is so vital to our overall health that we simply must be more mindful of it. I remember learning from Dr. Oz’s show that all disease originates in the gut and that dehydration is also a major cause of most illness. I began trying to take better care of my gut health the moment I heard that. But stress has been a big problem in the last year and a half, so I failed miserably. Thus, I am very excited to be re-starting with his new book as my guide. It’s chockfull of information on which foods to eat, as well as, lifestyle modifications that will help you optimize your health. .
The specific FIXES are as followed and the book describes them in detail:

Here is one of my favorite recipes from the book:
Chicken With Orange and Olives
1 t. olive oil
2 (8-ounce) boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Freshly ground black pepper
Zest and juice of 1 navel orange
1/4 c. pitted Kalamata olives, chopped or sliced
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F
Heat the olive oil in a medium skillet with ovenproof handle over medium-high heat. Season the chicken breasts with salt and pepper and add them to the skillet. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes on each side until nicely browned. Transfer the skillet to the oven and bake for 15 minutes, or until the chicken is no longer pink in the center. Remove the chicken from the skillet and set aside; return the skillet to the stovetop. Add the orange zest and juice and bring to a boil over medium-high heat, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the skillet. Add the olives and cook until the mixture has thickened slightly, then return the chicken to the skillet to coat with the sauce.
