    in Food

    Host Laura Theodore, the Jazzy Vegetarian,  welcomes Ellen Jaffe Jones who is The Veg Coach. We’ll chat about her new book, Eat Vegan on 4 Dollars a Day. I’ll share some of my favorite budget conscious but oh-so-delicious recipes! Be sure to watch  Jazzy Vegetarian  on National Public Television. Ellen Jaffe Jones is a cooking instructor with The Cancer Project, a program of the prestigious Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine. She spent eighteen years in TV news as an investigative reporter, morning anchor, and producer for network affiliates around the country, winning two regional Emmys, the National Press Club First-Place Award for Consumer Journalism, and United Press International’s First-Place Award for Investigative Reporting. As a result of her personal quest for better health, Ellen is a certified personal trainer and running coach. Her new book talks about how a plant-based diet can be good for your health while being easy on your budget! Discover how to give your shopping cart a makeover, learn how to forgo expensive processed foods and get the most flavor out of delicious, high-quality basic ingredients. Ellen Jaffe Jones has scoured the shelves of popular supermarkets and big-box stores and calculated exactly how it costs to eat healthfully and deliciously for $4 per person per day—less than an average meal at a fast food outlet. Each recipe is accompanied by the cost per serving. And from soups and salads to entrées and desserts, the flavors are as impressive as the savings.

    The Compelling Case for a Plant-Based Diet

    in Environment

    Dr. John McDougall


    John A. McDougall is an American Irish physician and author whose philosophy is that degenerative disease can be prevented and treated with a low-fat, whole foods, plant-based/vegan diet – especially one based on starches such as potatoes, rice, and corn – which excludes all animal foods and added vegetable oils. Passionate? Incredibly. Compelling? Totally. Convincing? Yes – because of the science Dr. McDougall brings to the table. If you have EVER wondered or want to know more about the benefits of a plant-based diet and want to educate yourself, make joining us a “must do.” You will be glad you did. Our thanks to the Tucson-based Healthy You Network for introducing us to Dr. McDougall and for helping make this interview  possible. This show sponsored by Goodwill Industries of Southern Arizona.
