Date:5/5/2015

West Orange, New Jersey (PRWEB) May 05, 2015

Barnabas Health, the state’s largest not-for-profit health care system, today announced the launch of a new healthy cooking video series starring celebrity chef Sam Talbot. Talbot, a season two semi-finalist on Bravo’s Top Chef, teamed up with Barnabas Health to showcase recipes and dishes that promote wellness and healthy living. In support of the series, Barnabas Health is also re-launching an enhanced Wellness Website and the videos will be showcased on social media.

“Building healthier communities is a crucial part of Barnabas Health’s mission,” said Barry H. Ostrowsky, President and Chief Executive Officer, Barnabas Health. "As we become more intimately involved with our communities’ wellness in places where people work, live, and play, we will be providing education programs that will yield measurable behavior changes and health outcomes. This video series is another way for us to impact the well-being of the communities we serve.”

Diagnosed at a young age with Type 1 Diabetes, Talbot lives with a deep understanding of the impact food can have on a person’s life. This perspective has allowed him to develop unique recipes highlighting the importance of eating right and cooking healthy.    

Talbot is featured in 11 videos with Barnabas Health dieticians combining the science of nutrition as it relates to healthy eating and wellness with the art of cooking.

“Partnering with a health care system like Barnabas Health has been a wonderful opportunity to fulfill my mission to showcase the special blend of science and the art of cooking while promoting health and wellness, said Talbot. “The videos and unique recipes were designed to make cooking enjoyable and help educate families on the importance of nutrition and eating healthy.”

The “Life is better healthy cooking series with Sam Talbot” was designed to help educate families on how to eat healthier in a fast paced, fast food environment. The series also highlights the importance of making healthy choices of fruits and vegetables instead of highly processed, fast and convenient foods. These recipes are simple, quick, nutritious, and inexpensive.

The 11-episode series includes videos on breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacking, fast food, processed food and balanced diet as well as episodes featuring seasonal foods and recipes.

Content for the videos were developed by Talbot in conjunction with Barbara Mintz, RD, Vice President of Healthy Living and Community Engagement for Barnabas Health.

In addition to the ‘Life is better healthy’ cooking videos, the enhanced Wellness Website also features healthy recipes, health quizzes, diet and exercise tips, age-specific guidelines for appropriate health screenings and tests, as well as health blogs and an A to Z health library.

“This website and the new, interactive content featured were developed to promote healthier eating habits and healthier living,” says Ms. Mintz. “Our goal is to help the community become more informed about the importance of healthful eating and the positive impacts it can have on their overall health and wellness.”

“At Barnabas Health, ‘Life is better healthy’ is not just our motto – it’s our way of life. We incorporated that philosophy into this website redesign and truly made it all about the people we serve and gave them access to resources they can use to achieve optimal health,” added Ms. Mintz.
