Introduction The number one question I’m asked by fans of my television shows and cookbooks is, “How do you stay so trim?” This book is my answer. It’s a personal look into how I keep my body and my mind in a happy and healthy balance! But I want to get one important thing straight right now: This is not a diet book. I don’t live my life on a diet; I just don’t believe in them for me. They are tough to stick to and encourage a sense of deprivation or missing out, resulting in roller-coaster weight loss and gain—and the mood swings that come along with that. I’m not a yo-yo and I can’t put my mind or body through that. Instead, I have adopted a balanced way of cooking, eating, and living that works for me and my family. This didn’t happen overnight, or by sitting down and scribbling a bunch of rules to follow, but rather over time, by tuning in to my body and what makes me run the smoothest and tuning out what doesn’t.

Sure, I had some dips here and there in my energy level throughout the day, but I had more energy in general and didn’t see a huge downside to this lifestyle. When I became pregnant with Jade, however, everything changed. I was responsible for this little life inside of me and I took the saying “eating for two” to heart. My body needed—and my baby deserved—better. This made me rethink my whole lifestyle. So I started making little adjustments here and there, changing bit by bit. I cut down on my sugar intake and started being more mindful of what I was eating in general. I ate more, which makes sense because I was pregnant, but that meant more vegetables, protein, and whole grains and a lot less sweet stuff. I started buying organic ingredients and produce, trying to limit the pesticides and chemicals in my system as
