Chef AJ and Dr. Matt
Healthy Made Delicious DVD

Starrring Chef AJ and and Dr. Matthew Lederman
Produced by Charles Shrewsbury

Hail to the Kale Productions, 2009

DVD with Recipe Booklet, $24.97

A vegan chef with a doctor as a sous chef is not your usual combination for an instructional team in a healthy cooking video, but Chef AJ and Dr. Matt are far from your usual cooking team. Chef AJ 's credentials are vegan chef, raw food chef, and culinary instructor in the Los Angeles area.

Dr. Matt, or as he is known in his practice as Dr. Matthew Lederman, is not your usual doctor who reaches for his prescription pad to prescribe the latest drug advertised on television. He's more interested in guiding you through lifestyle changes that will result in health improvement.

Healthy Made Delicious DVD In this one-hour DVD package the doctor/chef ensemble lead you through preparation of nine recipe segments to create dishes that please the palate but don't offend the wasteline. The production promises to help you learn the secrets to

  • Losing weight and keeping it off
  • Making healthy food taste great
  • Preventing and reversing disease

Chef AJ shows that it's more than possible to navigate through Dr. Matt's dietary requirements and still create tasty foods. Her recipes feature only unprocessed foods with no salt, sugar, or added oils. For those who come to this dietary program as a way to lose weight, the chef tells viewers they need not shun desserts. Two filmed segments present Chocolate Fundue and Orange Chocolate Mousse Torte.

A firm believer in using the blender to create liquid foods, Chef AJ provides three examples: Wake Up and Smell the Kale, It's Easy Being Green Smoothie, and Nutrient Rich Chocolate Smoothie.

While preparing the foods with Chef AJ, Dr. Matt Intersperses comments about the evils of eating dairy products and encourages viewers to eat more greens and vegetables. He also emphasizes the importance of not cooking with oil, even olive oil.

Soup lovers with find pleasure with Nutrient Rich Smokey Black Bean Soup, Creamy Corn Chowder, and Dream of Tomato Soup.

The DVD package contains a miniature, illustrated booklet featuring printed versions of the recipes in the film plus colorful photos. Also included is an additional recipe for making your own Fresh Almond Milk.

All of the recipes can be prepared quickly using either a high-powered blender or a food processor. One of the food processor recipes is a tempting Hearty Lentil Loaf which features walnuts, oats, carrots, and onions, along with tasty seasonings.

Chef AJ and Dr. Matt have combined their creative/educative talents to show viewers that they can transform their lives by following a lifestyle that emphasizes delicious, healthy nutrient-rich plant-based food that is easy to prepare. The hour spent viewing this film can be a life changer for so many people spiraling toward degenerative diseases and the poor health consequences that accompany them. As both say in the film, "Whether you eat them or drink them, eat your vegetables every day."

Chef AJ and Dr Matt Healthy Made Delicious is available from Thinnervention.com.
