Laurie David’s new cookbook, co-written with long-time collaborator Kirstin Uhrenholdt, is all about inspiring parents and kids to take control of what they eat by making it themselves. I’m obviously also a huge believer that healthy eating habits begin by cooking at home and taking agency over the ingredients you put in your body. It was great chatting with her and Jennifer Perillo, editor of Working Mom Magazine, about tactics for doing just that when you’re a busy parent.
This was one of my favorite installments of Wellness Wednesday so far. Heidi Lovie and Amie Valpone of The Healthy Apple joined me to chat about the various ways you can treat hypothryroidism with diet. They also talked about their own experiences with the disease, and what anyone who suffers with auto-immune issues should be doing to eat anti-inflammatory foods. Tune in above.
Exercise is something I’ve long struggled with. Especially these days since what I do for a living is fairly physical. So I was thrilled to hangout with Coach Brendan Moore and VROU Women founder Kathryn Moos to discuss some baby steps for fitting everyday fitness and nutrition practices into your busy workweek.

Also see below for a few behind the scenes shots of me on set. There are four more episodes to come…so stay tuned!

First shot of the day. Trying to look alive.
There’s a lot that needs rewriting from this past week’s Chef Race episode. Among them, Stan and my midpoint challenge cook-off against Caroline and Bianca, which they cut entirely. I am partially relieved because it means they cut Richard Corrigan telling me I should go learn how to use my knives. But it also means you missed us winning! (not that he ate his words or anything).
I’ll have all the behind-the-scenes dirt for you, as always, in my upcoming recap of the show. In the meantime, I wanted to share our winning recipe from that checkpoint in Little Rock. The challenge was catfish and rice, and for anyone who’s ever tried to make rice on a grill, you know it ain’t no picnic.… Continue Reading
