PHOENIX -- A well-known Valley chef is teaching others how to eat healthy...with marijuana.

Chef Payton Curry, owner of Scottsdale restaurants Brat Haus and Taco Haus, is teaching others "how to cook healthy recipes utilizing marijuana," the Phoenix Business Journal reported.

He calls his recipes "medibles" -- or "medicated edibles" -- and the health of others is first and foremost on his mind.

"I don't want people to be smoking if they have concerns about lung problems or carcinogens," Curry said.

Curry shows Valley residents how to make meals and smoothies using medical marijuana and healthy ingredients, such as using honey instead of corn syrup.

In addition to its medicinal properties, he firmly believes marijuana can lead others on the path of healthy living, just like it has for him.

Curry said years ago he was severely overweight from his drinking habit. He stopped drinking and switched to medical marijuana for his needs. Curry said he lost weight and ultimately became healthier.

Curry trained at the Culinary Institute of America in New York and interned at the Four Seasons in Singapore.
