Obesity is skyrocketing
and may soon surpass smoking as the nation's top preventable killer. The U.S. Surgeon General is begging Americans to eat more fruits and vegetables. VegTV is specifically designed to help Americans switch to a healthier diet to reduce the risk of cancer, heart disease, diabetes, and a host of obesity-related illnesses. The added bonus: you save money! A vegetable-rich diet is much cheaper than meat!
On VegTV, award-winning TV news journalist Jane Velez-Mitchell teams with best-selling cookbook author and nutrition expert Marie Oser to whip up delicious meals that are very low-fat, rich in fiber, and completely cholesterol-free. TV and movie stars, from Alicia Silverstone to James Cromwell, tell viewers why they have already made the switch to the vegetable-based diet.
VegTV uses only fruits, veggies, nuts, grains, and legumes, with an emphasis on soy, in the kitchen. Our recipes are totally free of meat, fish, eggs, dairy, and refined sugar.
