Meal of Your Life: Larenz Tate talks plant-based eating

Actor and producer discusses lifestyle and love for slow cookers

Chicago restaurateur Billy Dec is the host of the Meal of Your Life podcast, where distinguished guests — from fellow renowned chefs to athletes and celebrities — discuss a defining meal. 

Larenz Tate, the actor from the TV show “Power” and the films “Menace II Society” and “Crash,” sits down with Dec and chats about his acting roots, his plant-based lifestyle, his love for slow cookers, the reason why he doesn’t take lunch meetings with his brothers – his fellow producing partners – and the secret to his grandmother’s fried chicken.

For the past three years, he has served on the White House Advisory Commission on Asian American & Pacific Islanders and the White House Bullying Prevention Task Force.
