Despite a massive increase in popularity, impact and celebrity promotion, the vegan scene has always lacked a mainstream cooking show to help the masses whip up their own delicious plant-based meals. 2013 looks to completely change that with the Cooking Channel's new series, "How to Live to 100." 

Hosted by chef Jason Wrobel, known as the "King of Superfoods," the first-of-its-kind series will combine raw and vegan recipes to increase your longevity and turn powerful ingredients into culinary masterpieces.

"The healing properties and outrageous tastes of his dishes have rendered his recipes hands-down favorites among celebrity clients and regular folk alike," the Cooking Channel praised in a release. "J-Wro fans Woody Harrelson, Jeremy Piven, Robin Wright, Sigourney Weaver, John C. Reilly, Steve Buscemi, Isabelle Adjani and Russell Simmons consistently rave about his delicious and innovative cooking."

Sample recipes we can expect to see Wrobel prepare include cilantro lime pesto pasta, black bean chickpea salad, coconut yogurt with fresh figs and apples. For anyone looking to jump-start their health in the new year, this new show looks like a slam dunk primer for delicious, healthy eats. 

"How to Live to be 100" premieres this Sunday at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PST. To learn more about Jason, check out his official website here
