Health Notes from Dr. Liz

Oktoberfest Foods

Dr. Liz

When it comes to taking part in Oktoberfest, we always say why NOT celebrate another country’s holiday, especially when it involves delicious foods and lasts 16 days?! Oktoberfest, which started as a wedding celebration for a Bavarian prince back in 1810, is marked by traditional foods including sausages and copious amounts of beer. Not exactly what you would think of as “good for you” eats, but these foods actually do have some health benefits:

  • Sausages: At the heart of Oktoberfest, sausages can be high in fat, but Nugget offers a handmade, lower-fat version with lean pork or chicken along with a wealth of spices such as cardamom, mace and sea salt along with fresh chopped chives and parsley.
  • Mustard: What’s sausage without some zesty mustard? As a condiment, mustard (made from ground mustard seeds) is not only very low in fat, but it is loaded with potent cancer fighters called indoles (a member of the broccoli or brassica family.)
  • Rothohl/Blaukohl (traditional apple and red cabbage dish): Often times made with vinegar (but some versions come with added cream), this side dish is rich in cholesterol-lowering soluble fiber from the apples (especially if the skin is left on). Plus red cabbage, another member of the brassica vegetable family, is loaded with cancer-fighting indoles.
  • Pretzels: Need more reasons for sampling different mustards? Pretzels are generally fat-free and sometimes whole grain, so they’re a good source of insoluble fiber, important for digestive tract health.
  • Beer: The most notable Oktoberfest staple, beer in moderation* has been shown to help lower heart disease risk. Made from barley (grain) and hops (flower), beer contains phtyochemicals shown to boost heart health.

* Moderation is one 12 oz. beer for women and up to two for men per day.
