Nourished and Zingerman's Bakehouse on Great Taste this Week!

NourishedLia Huber, the author of Nourished:  A Memoir of Food, Faith and Enduring Love, is my guest on the opening segment of this week's show.  Lia has a writing style that engaged me as a reader and I lost myself in the intimate way she shared her story.  There are reicpes in the book, but her focus is the personal journey and how she discovered a practical way to eat well.

You can check out her website The Nourish Evolution here.  Talking with her was one of the highlights of doing the Great Taste show this year.

FRESH--Juice and Bread--on GREAT TASTE

Putting together Great Taste every week always means encountering new people and information.   It's why I love to do the show; I learn more about food and cooking from knowledgeable and terrific farmers, authors, and chefs, then I have the privilege of passing their stories on to you, the listener. 

Robin AsbellRobin Asbell is the author of Gluten Free Pasta, Sweet and Easy Vegan Treats Made with Whole Grains and Natural Sweeteners, Big Vegan, New Vegetarian and The New Whole Grains Cookbook.  Her latest effort is Juice It! Energizing Juices for All Times of Day (Chronicle Books).

What was it that stood out above all other aspects when talking Juice It!with Robin about her new book?  It was her lack of an agenda other than the simple objective of offering people an easy option for imbibing delicious, healthy beverages.  She presents her recipes in a simple, straightforward style fitting all the juices into neat categories-energizing, healing, relaxing, or pure pleasure.  This approach along with added tips makes the book appealing to first-time and habitual juicers.  You can learn more about Robin and follow her blog at http://robinasbell.com/.

Josey Baker BreadAnyone notice the beating bread (wheat) is taking these days?  Everyone seems to either be allergic to it, cutting down to trim the waistline fat, or avoiding it because of adopting the "paleo" diet.  Spend five minutes or less in a room with Josey Baker and I'll bet your resolve would end up in Josey Bakerthe toaster along with a piece of bread.

Josey's book, Josey Baker Bread is an extraordinary cookbook that lesson-by-lesson can make you into a baker.  He is the perfect person to write this type of baking guide because he had no formal experience-not at his mother's apron strings, not at a school or at the hearth of a master baker in France.

Dr. Travis Stork's emergency room work inspired his latest New York Times best-seller, The Doctor's Diet: Dr. Travis Stork's STAT Program to Help You Lose Weight & Restore Health.

Dr. Travis, who co-hosts the Emmy Award-winning TV show The Doctors, is dedicated to sharing useful and accurate health information. If achieving and maintaining a proper weight is important to you, don't miss The Studio with Cheryl and Dr. Travis this week!

The second half of the hour features a recap of the best bits of picture book author and illustrator Loren Long's visit to The Studio. Loren reveals the secrets behind the creation of his acclaimed and wildly popular picture books featuring Otis, a friendly, helpful, and humble farm tractor.

We have had numerous shows on raw foods throughout the years, but this one is going to take a little different angle.  Rather than focusing on how to change your entire lifestyle and go raw, or undertaking weeks of cleansing programs, I asked our guests to present easy options for improving our health and eating habits.  The challenge to them was to show us in one hour ways we can enjoy benefits from integrating more raw foods into our diet.   
Isha Kinger
So this week's show is all about fast food, but let's make it raw.  Isha Kinger and Emily Shaw have come up with a few easy principles that we can apply to our daily meal plans.  They'll demonstrate how simple it is to make an ultra delicious and nutritious smoothie,  come up with a main couEmily Shawrse that has all the elements of its Italian roots, but is totally raw, and a dessert to satisfy anyone's sweet tooth.   Plus, they'll discuss other easy to make menu ideas, and some of the reasons why a slight change in diet could prove beneficial.

Isha  is a raw food chef and graduate from the Living Lights Culinary Arts Institute in California.  Also, she earned a certificate in Raw Food Nutrition from The Heath Awareness Centre in India.  Emily has a B. A. in Health and Human Physiology from the University of Iowa and is an aspiring gourmet, raw, vegan chef.

Raw food live from Hy-Vee's Club Room/Kitchen Lab this Wednesday at 7:00 pm.  We hope to see you there or find you online listening to the stream.
