On the Dr. Oz Show today, the recipes from the $5 Healthy Meal Challenge were revealed. We all know it’s more expensive to eat healthy, as processed food is so cheap. Dr. Oz had Chef Art Smith on the show to show us how to eat healthy for less.
He started off by discussing Oatmeal. It’s cheap, gives you energy and is a versatile grain that is healthy for you. Dr. Oz suggested that everyone find recipes for oatmeal that aren’t just for breakfast.
One finalist, Elizabeth, showed us how to make her Chicken Roll Ups.
Chicken Roll Ups Recipe
Take one pound of chicken breasts, cut into long pieces, then roll and pound until thin. Layer a slice of ham and a slice of cheese on the chicken, and add some vegetables like asparagus. Then roll up and secure with a toothpick.
Brush olive oil all over the chicken roll up, then dip it in a crumb mixture to coat it. Place in baking dish and drizzle more olive oil over the roll ups. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Switch oven to the Broil setting and move the pan closer to the heat source to crisp the crumbs, for about 1-2 minutes.
The other finalist, Dina, demonstrated her

Mix the bread crumbs with a bit of grated parmesan cheese. Dip the cutlets in the milk, then in the bread crumb mixture. Spray it with olive oil spray and bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes, turning over halfway through. Sprinkle a bit of lemon juice on the cutlets when you turn them over.
Heat the olive oil in a nonstick pan and sauté the garlic cloves until browned. Add the kale, sprinkle with salt and pepper and sauté for 10 to 15 minutes.
The Chicken Roll Ups Recipe won. I am probably going to try both though. They look delicious!
