Sweet Things: Is Sugar Public Enemy #1?

This episode shows viewers exactly how to satisfy a sweet tooth with creative deserts containing a healthy package of nutritionally sweet benefits, as opposed to refined white sugar which contains nothing but empty calories. "Sweet Things" opens in the arid date gardens of southern California's Coachella Valley, where David introduces three delectable desert desserts - a Mediterranean sweet/savory dessert tray, boozy oranges with a hint of chocolate and date and bourbon Chantilly cream over fresh fruit. David whips up all these yummy temptations from his kitchen studio near Palm Springs. David takes an out-of-kitchen adventure to Oasis Date Gardens. There he experiences the annual harvest of this ancient, semi-dry fruit. It's agriculture like you've never seen, and possibly never tasted before. Also, dietician Elizabeth Kelsey educates viewers to the surprising nutritional benefits of dates, and other fruits, while cautioning about using too much refined sugar in her "Second Helpings" segment. Then David goes for a jog to wrap up the show with another "Earn What You Eat" message about the importance of positive activity and fitness, no matter your age.

The Spices of Life

Herbs and spices offer a bounty of concentrated anti-oxidants and anti-inflammatory agents that are greater than almost any other category of foodstuffs. But best of all, spices offer a superior variety of intense flavor alternatives that shame salt and sugar by comparison. Host David Jackson opens the show in the kitchen amidst a bazaar of exotic spices. Donning his apron, it's straight into a pair of outright delicious Indian-influenced recipes, fresh and easy lamb curry and vegetarian saag aloo.

Eating Away at Inflammation

Every recipe in each of the series' episode helps fight inflammation. The saturated fats, sodium and sugar shows teach food behavior to combat heart disease, hypertension and diabetes. However, the episodes about healthier fats, fiber, spices, protein and the vegetable rainbow teach that health-positive meals are also taste positive. But they all help prevent inflammation, no matter what their additional attributes may be.
