Celebrity Chefs Teach Plant-Based Diabetes Approach

Vegan chefs Bryant Terry, Toni Fiore, and Jason Wyrick addressed more than 600 enthusiastic diabetes educatorsFour high-profile chefs joined PCRM in August to spread the word that a low-fat vegan diet can help fight type 2 diabetes.

During PCRM’s “Celebrity Chefs Cook Vegan and So Can You” program, celebrity chefs taught diabetes educators how to inspire their patients to cook and eat more healthfully. More than 600 diabetes educators packed the room at this continuing education program at the American Association of Diabetes Educators’ Annual Meeting. Preparation of low-fat vegan cuisine was demonstrated by Toni Fiore, host of PBS’s Totally Vegetarian, Rip Esselstyn, firefighter and author of The Engine 2 Diet­, Bryant Terry, author of Vegan Soul Kitchen, and Jason Wyrick, editor of Vegan Culinary Experience.

The event also featured presentations on the science and practical aspects of plant-based nutrition for diabetes. Studies show that a low-fat vegan diet helps people with diabetes lose weight and improve their blood sugar and cholesterol. It can also reduce or eliminate their need for medication.
