Letter1Greetings!

We are excited to announce the availability of a trendy and fun brand new cooking series--Jazzy Vegetarian: 101-113.  Vegetarian cooking is very in nowadays.  Would anyone ever have put money on Bill Clinton becoming a vegan?  From boomers and the WWII folks concerned about their health to Gen Xers and millions of others focused upon well-being, the environment and animal rights, these 13 half-hours are cutting edge cooking programs with a twist. Series host Laura Theodore is an award-winning popular jazz singer, as well as a sought-after chef whose elegance and culinary acumen make this a smart, edgy series: it's not your father's vegetarian show.     

 

In Jazzy Vegetarian, Laura Theodore, the stylish Jazzy Vegetarian, brings easy and delicious vegetarian cooking to health conscious people of all ages.  She cooks up mouth watering, healthy meals and snacks without dairy, meat, eggs or animal products. All of her recipes are based on traditional American cuisine and are completely cholesterol free! Her step-by-step instructions make preparing nutritious food easy and her eco-friendly tips help viewers live more balanced sustainable lives. From "Festive Zucchini Lasagna" to "Dazzling Chocolate Desserts," Laura leads the viewer on a down-to-earth path to a heavenly feast.    

 

Pamela A. Popper, Ph.D, N.D., President, The Wellness Forum, eloquently summarizes Laura Theodore's philosophy about vegetarian cuisine:

 

There are few people who disagree with the idea that eating a better diet is the key to enjoying better health....But one of the impediments to dietary change for many people continues to be the fear that food will no longer be enjoyable;...Laura Theodore ...offers dishes that are both mouth-watering and healthy, and are accessible even for those who are not experienced cooks.

 

Laura Theodore, the Jazzy Vegetarian, is a radio host and TV personality, vegetarian cook, sustainable lifestyle blogger, compassionate cookbook author and award-winning popular jazz singer and actor. She has made guest appearances on the major television networks and been featured in the New York Times, USA Today, Dallas Morning News and Time Magazine, among others.
