Primetime America got a brief introduction to Chef Lorena Garcia on tonight’s Biggest Loser. One of the leading Latina chefs in the country, she helped the black team prepare a healthy and flavorful meal.
Veteran Biggest Loser Chef Curtis Stone introduced Lorena, bragging on the 60 pound weight loss she’s achieved by switching to healthier foods. She shows off her culinary talents for bold, flavorful food that is also calorie conscious as the host of “Cocinando con Nestle” with Univision’s “Despierta America.”
Lorena is passionate about childhood obesity and in an effort to join this important fight, she founded “Big Chef, Little Chef, a program that helps children and families better manage their eating habits and as a result their lives. Lorena and Big Chef, Little Chef don’t just focus on the importance of healthy eating, but also a wholly healthier lifestyle that helps the entire family understand the importance of nutrition for having a happier, more positive life.
This fall her first restaurant opens at Miami International Airport, in partnership with HMS Host Marriot Services. Lorena Garcia Cocina Restaurant will offer busy air travelers healthier Latin fare.
