Eat better, feel better, heal faster, live longer
Foodicine is a groundbreaking, genre-bending, lifestyle food makeover series that will air nationally on American Public Television in 2014. With the help of celebrity chefs and world-renowned physicians, Foodicine is the first medical/cooking television show that focuses on healthy eating for individuals that require special diets.
Everyone wants great food-even those on special diets, and Foodicine addresses this issue by utilizing a fast moving show format that combines reality footage of physician visits of patients with medical diagnoses (Diabetes, Cardiovascular Disease, high cholesterol, Celiac Disease, etc.) with cooking techniques to teach the patient that eating the right foods (gluten free, sugar-free, cholesterol-free, fat free, etc,) can enhance the treatment of their specific medical condition.
The Foodicine team has assembled physicians and dietitians from Harvard Medical School's Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and the Joslin Diabetes Center in Boston and we have celebrity chefs Sara Moulton (Food Network, Gourmet Magazine) and Aaron McCargo, Jr. (Food Network) on the show. Other celebrity chefs and celebrity entertainers with illnesses that have been treated by adhering to a special diet will be on the show as well.
Current food-related shows in the media focus on nutrition, health, and cooking for the general public. Foodicine takes the nutrition/cooking concept to the next level by combining the reality of patients whose lives are severely impacted by food affected illnesses (which are prevalent in astronomical numbers in the United States) with humor, understanding, and cooking techniques to turn the patient's life around.
For the first time, this show will educate individuals throughout the country about the food related illnesses, nutritional foods and cooking techniques to prevent and treat these illnesses, and how to "know your own body" and tune in to one's healthy self.
We anticipate a groundswell of viewers for this innovative and groundbreaking series. Bringing chronic illnesses and their food treatments into the public eye on television will increase awareness regarding these diseases in both the public and medical communities.
Foodicine will also help increase tolerance and understanding in restaurants, supermarkets, and general lifestyle settings for patients who must deal with their health restrictions in public locations on a daily basis.
As you know, all television series on public television are required to obtain their own production costs. Our team needs to raise $1,100,000 to produce Season 1 of Foodicine.
