Cooked Raw-Matthew Kenney

This Wednesday I welcome back to the show Matthew Kenney.  I have great admiration for Matthew.  In the 90's he was in the top tier of chefs as a chef/owner of Matthew's and other restaurants in New York City.  But, much to the dismay, confusion, and derision of many of his colleagues he changed course in the new century to become an untiring champion of the plant-based, raw food lifestyle.  He has applied his extensive classical training, modernist techniques, and experience to elevate raw food cuisine to a level that wows people at his restaurants, his culinary academy, and through numerous books.  Despite numerous overwhelming personal and business challenges, his commitment to educating the public about the benefits of a plant-based diet and lifestyle is unwavering.

Kathy Snow and Janelle Jaspers Jones

This week on The Skinny, there's a 'tint of snow' in the air (and the KRUU studios) as Africa lends the reins to Kathy Snow and Andrew Tint.

Listen to their fun interview with one of Kathy's college roommates, teammates, and besties, Janelle Jaspers Jones. A 3-time state high school high jump champ, 1st team all-state basketball player, and one of Iowa's all-time Top 10-performing heptathletes--Janelle's now a busy mom and personal trainer in Minneapolis with her own wellness-based business called Functional Fitness. Janelle trains clients from all walks and ages. Whether they're in their 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, 60s, and even 70s and 80s (who Africa fondly refers to as 2s, 3s, 4s, 5s, 6s, 7s, and 8s)...Janelle encourages everyone to start making themselves a priority and do what they can to lead a healthier life. Listen and learn while Janelle introduces us to Tabata-style training. Founded in Japan by Izumi Tabata, the Tabata concept is an easily modified type of high intensity interval training that you can customize to your fitness level. Unlike a more complicated or multi-exercise circuit, one Tabata session could be simply two exercises...doing as many squats (or just getting up and sitting down on a chair as many times) as you can in 20 seconds, followed by 10 seconds of rest, and then 20 seconds of push-ups (or do them against the wall), followed by 10 seconds of rest...and repeat 4 times.
