Call in to speak with the host
You gotta admire Michael Feinstein. Yes, for his prodigious jazz-piano talents and melifulous vocal stylings. But also for his willpower during the holiday season. “To quell my sweet tooth, I’ll have certain jams on vegan bread. As pathetic as it sounds, that’s a big treat for me this time of year,” he tells Laura Theodore, host of the PBS cooking show The Jazzy Vegetarian and its companion BlogTalkRadio series. “With all the temptations that come through the holidays, when I wake up in the morning I think, What am I gonna put in my body?” continues the musical artist, who cites vegan pumpkin pie as his favorite holiday dish. “I visualize how it feels when I eat a certain food. Because we know intuitively what’s good for us and what’s not. Our body tells us what it wants. So I try and eat very simply, and not to get overwhelmed with all the choices.”
It's good to talk.
