In today’s episode of The Plant Trainers Podcast we talk to Chef AJ, who has been devoted to a plant-based diet for almost 40 years. She is the host of the television series Healthy Living with Chef AJ which airs on Foody TV. With her comedy background, she has made appearances on The Tonight Show starring Johnny Carson, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Late Show with David Letterman and more.

A chef, culinary instructor and professional speaker, she is author of the popular book Unprocessed: How to Achieve Vibrant Health and Your Ideal Weight, which chronicles her journey from a junk-food vegan faced with a diagnosis of pre-cancerous polyps, to learning how to create foods that nourish and heal the body. Chef AJ is also creator of Healthy Taste of LA and the YouTube cooking show The Chef and the Dietitian, and is proud to say that her IQ is higher than her cholesterol.

Based in Los Angeles, Chef AJ teaches a monthly seminar featuring cooking instruction, nutritional science and song parodies, all delivered with comedic panache. She is the creator of the Ultimate Weight Loss Program, which has helped hundreds of people achieve the health and the body that they deserve. We talk about the basics of this program throughout the show.
