Q. How does being KIND to your body help you reach everyday health goals?
A. We need to be KIND to our bodies — they’re obviously super-important to us! And we only have one body… and we want it to last for a long time, right?
Q. What are your top tips for being KIND to your taste buds?
A. I love finding foods that taste great that won’t pack on pounds. I have a lot of cravings and so I love to eat a wide variety of things to satisfy them… and I love to share my finds in my Hungry Girl e-newsletter (http://www.hungry-girl.com) and on my show (http://www.hungry-girl.com/show).
Q. Do you have a favorite KIND bar?
Q. How do you try to make the world a KINDER place?
A. I work closely with Project Angel Food (http://www.angelfood.org/), a Los Angeles-based charity. The awesomely cool Hungry Girl van is used to deliver thousands of nutritious meals (at no cost) to seriously ill, homebound folks in the Los Angeles area. My pals at Project Angel Food have been doing amazing work since 1989. In their 18 years of service, they’ve delivered over 5 million meals!
