The 4-part series “Prescription: Nutrition” explores the extraordinary health benefits of plant-based diets and the amazing revolution taking place on how we approach our relationship with food. The series is built around the work of Dr. Michael Greger, health expert author of the New York Times best-seller How Not to Die and creator of the world-renowned website NutritionFacts.org.
Dr. Greger reviews thousands of scientific papers about nutrition each year, and masterfully distills the findings into practical advice about the many benefits of plant-based diets. Additional insight on how different foods affect our bodies, and practical advice on how each of us can improve our eating and shopping habits, is provided by nutritionist Tracye McQuirter, MPH, author of By Any Greens Necessary.
But the true heart of “Prescription: Nutrition” is the story of a remarkable revolution that’s taking place in plant-based cooking and eating. Award-winning chefs Rich Landau and Kate Jacoby share the surprising story of their popular plant-based restaurants Vedge, V Street and Wiz Kid – in the heart of Philadelphia, PA. Their success in crafting crave-worthy plant-based dishes for the home up to four-star restaurants continues to draw international acclaim, and praises from plant and meat-eaters alike.
Episodes will be released on a bi-weekly schedule, starting Thursday, January 12th!
