June 6, 2012: In this hour I reviewed last week’s wonderful Veggie Pride Parade in Manhattan. I discussed how the attitude towards cigarette smoking has changed in the last 50 years and compared what is needed to be done with diet. I gave my spin on Mayor Bloomberg’s new ban on sugary drinks and offered up lots of refreshing beverage alternatives. I answered some listener questions on the many shades of vegan – from raw to cooked. I shared my fascination with Rice Paper and all the delicious things you can do with it including Chef Roberto Martin’s fried chick’n recipe and briefly talk about the health benefits of Linden Tree and Hibicus flowers.
