7: #TBT – Vegan chef Jason Wrobel on nutrition & health


How do celebrities get their recipes and healthy food ideas? They ask Jason! Enjoy this #ThrowbackThursday episode where we chat with celebrity chef Jason Wrobel, and get a detailed look into his recipes and cooking style.

Where do all the major diseases in our country come from? If you look closely, you’ll notice that the big contributors are an overload of meat & dairy products in our diets, and the addition of processed foods & added sugars. When you discover this correlation, how can you not act on it? It’s simple! Remove these foods, and remove disease. Case in point: going vegan cured Jason’s asthma.

Ever wondered why juice cleanses are so effective? Jason explains that the amount of energy needed to digest regular food is massive, so much so that almost no energy remains for healing. But, when you juice, this takes far less resources to digest, and allows your body to heal itself while absorbing the important nutrients. It’s a concentration of nutrients!

Raw foods… sound gross? Research shows that cooking foods with high temperatures can cause foods to lose essential nutrients and enzymes. Focusing on eating raw foods keeps all the elements of a food intact, making for easy digestion and nutrient absorption.

And we all know the troubles with processed foods… Jason breaks down the relationship between foods and our body in simple terms, explaining that our body just doesn’t recognized the chemicals and modified nutrients in processed foods. It doesn’t know what to do with it, and therefore turns it into fat storage, where the toxins continue to linger in your system.

There is a recurring theme we’ve noticed in all of our episodes so far; do you remember what it is? Doctors don’t prescribe healthy foods and alternative medicine to their patients, because that wouldn’t create repeat customers for the healthcare system. Sound like insanity to you? Jason dives in to some of the details on this irony at the end of the episode.


A snippet from Jason’s website:

Jason Wrobel is a world-renowned leader in organic raw vegan cuisine, culinary education and epicurean entertainment.  With a focus on radical simplicity and artful presentation, he imbues his ecstatic raw food creations with the energy of fresh, local, organic produce and the healing properties of raw superfoods, which have rendered his dishes hands-down favorites among celebrity clients, and regular folk alike. J-Wro fans Woody Harrelson, Jeremy Piven, Robin Wright, Sigourney Weaver, John C. Reilly, Steve Buscemi, Isabelle Adjani, Oren Moverman and Russell Simmons, consistently (and effusively) rave about his healthy, innovative and delicious plant-based creations.
