Can We Believe Weight Loss Studies? On Monday two new diet studies were released. One from the Annals of Internal Medicine said the way to go is a low-carb diet rather than a low-fat diet. The other from the Journal of American Medical Association showed that all diets - low-carb and low-fat - could work. And by Wednesday, we’re all afraid to eat. So, what can we believe?
Gangsta gardener, a donut dough-bate, 'The Last Magnificent' Artist and community activist Ron Finley discusses how he’s changing South LA, one garden at a time. Chef Jeremiah Tower talks about starring in “The Last Magnificent,” a new documentary about his role as one of the defining figures in the early days of California cuisine. Plus: Laura Avery stuffs her “Good Food” tote full of green garlic, while Evan and The Sporkful’s Dan Pashman get into a heated dough-bate about donuts.
The 'Eat Your Veggies' show Chef Jeremy Fox turns vegetables into true expressions of seasonal flavors at Rustic Canyon, Julia Sherman documents artists making salads in “Salad for President,” and Deborah Madison shares meatless meal tips. Then Laura Avery shops for spring veggies at the market while we get a peek at Stacy Michelson’s design for KCRW’s “Good Food” tote bag. Plus: Jonathan Gold digs into the Redneck Platter at Manuela.
