Since being pregnant with my first child last year, I’ve become increasingly committed to ensuring our family is eating healthy, fresh food. Since then I’ve become one busy mama, so efficiency is now also incredibly important. I’m a big proponent of cooking once and eating twice, but it’s also nice to have some staple fridge clean-out meals in mind, ready to deploy when your leftovers are becoming unruly.
Leftover wraps are one of my favorite solutions! The filling can be made with basically whatever’s on hand (rice, beans and veggies work great), and rolled up in cabbage, collard, kale, or any big leafy green.
DR L: Why did you write a book about green drinks?
KVW: It’s no secret anymore that leafy greens are incredibly good for us. However – most of us don’t eat enough of them! Adding greens to juices and smoothies is such an easy way to sneak in a few more servings of greens everyday. I think a lot of people love the idea of this, but are confused about where to start and how to do it. I also wanted to offer people a bunch of recipes that were not only healthy, but also totally delicious! I set about to make a book whose main purpose was to prove to people that these green drinks can be flavorful, fun and yummy. It’s not just liquidized kale. Promise!

Sometimes beauty lies in the most unlikely of places: in a messy, bed-head hairdo, a smoky smear of eye makeup, or the flush in your cheeks after a hard workout. Beauty isn’t perfection; sometimes it’s even more compelling when it’s unconventional. Along those same lines, I’ve found that some of the foods that make us look and feel our most beautiful are, well, … downright ugly, stinky and pungent. Not all of nature’s beauty foods are as pretty and sweet as raspberries and pomegranates. Check out my list of the seven unlikeliest foods that make your skin, nails and hair quite beautiful. I try to eat them as regularly as possible- and make sure to brush twice afterward!
