    I LOVE CHEF DAVE!!!…..can’t wait for his show to start! It is so great getting behind the scenes with him. Makes me want to pack my suitcase and hit the road!! How fun!

    And as always, great info from Leslie….I hope to see the soda tax happen! Hopefully it will help people get off the juice.

    Awesome Leslie, awesome Leslie! AND awesome Chef Dave! Great job everyone!!! I saw a program about people that work outside in the cold produce more brown fat so now when the post-ops complain about being cold at events, I’ll tell them they are making brown fat and so enjoy it! GREAT JOB!!
