Eat SMART.

Chef Jody Denton, Executive Research Chef at Frito-Lay’s Culinary Innovation Center has named the Top 10 SMARTest cities in the US. What does SMART stand for?

Well, each letter stands for a specific area of focus: Savvy, Motivated, Accomplished, Responsible and Thoughtful.

The Top 10 SMARTest cities ranked by Smartfood and SELF magazine are:
  • San Francisco, Calif.
  • Seattle, Wash.
  • Washington, D.C.
  • Austin, Texas
  • Minneapolis, Minn.
  • Portland, Ore.
  • Denver, Colo.
  • Boston, Mass.
  • Honolulu, Hawaii
  • San Jose, Calif.

Delicious Food and Great Flavor.

That is the criteria that Chef Jody Denton used to pick the top cities.

I had the chance to ask Chef Jody some questions regarding how he chose, why San Francisco is number 1 and personal questions about how I can make delicious yet smarter choices when we have cook-outs this summer.

In the video above, you will see Chef Jody answering my questions, considering I just came back from San Francisco in May, I can vouch that they truly do have amazing food!
