Dr. Weil on the Dr. Oz Show 10-12-2012

On October 12th, 2012, on an episode of The Dr. Oz Show titled "Andrew Weil’s Anti-Inflammatory Diet for Optimum Health," Drs. Weil and Mehmet Oz enjoyed a lively discussion with each other and the audience. Dr. Weil emphasized that, unlike most healthy food regimes, his requires no sacrifices in flavor.

To prove the point, he made dishes from his new cookbook: True Food: Seasonal, Sustainable, Simple, Pure, for Dr. Oz and the appreciative audience. Based on the recipes of Dr. Weil’s popular True Food Kitchen restaurants, the cookbook uses fresh, pure, simple ingredients to create "delicious food that happens to be good for you."
