I love Oprah.
I really, really do.
But boy, did that TV commercial really piss me off.
You know the one where she sits there and talks about how she's so happy that she can lose weight while still eating bread every single day?

Just a head's up, this blog posting is going to be of particular interest mainly to my readers in North East Ohio . . .
Have you ever heard of The Culinary Vegetable Institute?
Doesn't just the name send tingles up your spine?
I thought so!
Well, if you have never heard of the CVI, I'm happy to be introducing it to you today. And to be telling you about a once in a lifetime whole food plant based gourmet event that they are hosting on Saturday night!!!!!!

If there is one thing that I know to be true in this world, it is that Chef AJ is a plant based culinary genius.
Chef AJ has consistently created new and delicious recipes that comply with the latest nutritional knowledge that she acquires, and we have all been the beneficiaries of her hard work in the kitchen. If you haven't seen this gem of a video yet, be sure to watch it a.s.a.p.
