My friend Chef AJ puts on these awesome annual events called “Healthy Taste of LA” in Redondo Beach. They feature a keynote speaker and then cooking demos from well-known plant-based chefs. Last time I got to meet one of my heroes, Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn. Good news for those of you in LA or OC – she’s having another similar event featuring the hilarious and brilliant Dr. Michael Greger, creator of NutritionFacts.org, quite possibly the most powerful resource for scientific nutrition information on the internet. His presentations are always entertaining and incredibly informative – I got to see him at Dr. McDougall’s Advanced Study Weekend a couple years ago. The event is a hell of a deal at $39. And as a bonus, it looks like Chef Ramses Bravo from True North will be there doing some cooking demos. Here’s the information below:
South Bay Redondo 7th Day Adventist Church, 401 S. Prospect Avenue, Redondo Beach, CA 90277
“Uprooting the Leading Causes of Death”
Dr. Greger offers practical advice on how best to feed ourselves and our families to prevent, treat, and even reverse many of our top killer chronic diseases. He will present two one-hour lectures.
Michael Greger, M.D., is a physician, author and professional speaker. A graduate of the Cornell University School of Agriculture and the Tufts University School of Medicine, Dr. Greger was honored to teach part of Dr. T. Colin Campbell’s esteemed nutrition course at Cornell University. He appeared as an expert witness to testify about mad-cow disease when cattle producers sued Oprah Winfrey for libel.

In his book, Ramses offers up a collection of healthy, plant-based, nutrient-rich recipes that does more than please palates, it serves as a new starting point for people who want to transform their health.
