NBA veteran DeAndre Jordan is a man of many talents. While everyone knows the Brooklyn’ Nets center can snag rebounds, few know of his ability to serve up plant-based delicacies as well. A new plant-based cooking show featuring Jordan as the host premiered Sunday.
The 8-part series, Cooking Clean, sees Jordan host one of his favorite chefs each week to prepare plant-based meals. Each episode will feature a different recipe for viewers to cook alongside Jordan and the guest chef.
“In 2018, I converted to a full on plant-based lifestyle,” Jordan said in a promotional video for the series. “You can pretty much say I’m an expert plant-based chef now… kinda.”
Through the show, Jordan hopes to inspire others. ““My hope is that Cooking Clean provides helpful insight into the life-changing benefits of plant-based foods and inspires audiences to embrace a more sustainable diet,” he said in a statement to Plant Based News.
The show is airing on PlayersTV, an athlete-owned lifestyle and culture television network that launched in 2020. Investors in PlayersTV include Chris Paul. Kyrie Irving, Damian Lillard and others throughout the NBA. It’s not just basketball players involved in the company, Major League Baseball legend Ken Griffey Jr. is an investor as well.
Cooking Clean airs Sundays at 3 PM, 6 PM and 9 PM EST on PlayersTV.
