One of the first shows I found was Julie Hassons’ Everyday Dish. Julie is responsible for my first purchase of an electric ice cream maker. While the one she uses was a lot pricier than mine, her easy canned pineapple and coconut milk blended recipe got me hooked. It was easy and tasty and had my attention. (The fat content was too high for me, but it got me thinking a lot about making healthy confections.) Julie is delightful and has various guest chefs who add a lot of variety to her programs. Her repertoire is large so please check our her website and watch a few of her great shows.
Produced by filmmaker Betsy Carson of All Art Media Inc. and featuring host Toni Fiore, ”Totally Vegetarian” (Delicious TV Veg) is not always vegan, but most recipes are and the rest usually have a vegan option for those of us concerned about ethical eating. Our hostess for this show is always very clear, very professional, and has some terrific ideas for preparing healthy, plant-based recipes. Toni has introduced me to Tempeh Club Sandwiches and Tofu Bits, among many other dishes. It is fun to see how she functions in her beautiful kitchen. She is the reason I bought my olive oil drizzler.
Adam Ford from Ridgeline Fitness offers several fitness videos using the Swiss Ball and his unique brand of controlled exercising. If you never thought an inflated ball could be used for working your biceps, think again. With this man, nothing is impossible! If these videos do not motivate you to have a healthier, more fit appearance, you might as well cancel your gym membership. After viewing these YouTube videos, I purchased his DVDs and use them regularly. They work, plain and simple. Who knew a Swiss Ball could function as a weight bench, a set of dumbbells, and a stretching machine?
As you can clearly tell from the above information, I fully appreciate the contributions each has made to my life. Most people who give so willingly of their time and information pro bono also appreciate patronage of their material: cookbooks, websites, or exercise DVDs. As you can tell from my self-report, I have spent $$ as well as time as a result of these shows, but it has definitely been worth every penny. These are knowledgeable, talented people that let you get a preview; they are all on YouTube so you can check them out before you invest.
