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.

Dietary Fiber: Bulking Up On Taste

David Jackson reflects on the passage of time, watching himself on a mid-century television set as much younger David promotes the importance of fiber. This is from his first cooking show 35 years ago. The message is similar. Only the messenger has changed, which in point of fact makes a high fiber message all the more vital. The tasty menu includes David's delicious almost chicken soup, so loaded with hearty, healthy and fresh vegetables and beans that there's almost no room left for lean, skinless chunks of chicken breast.
