What Did We Learn This Month?
Health magazine: May 2012
What’s happening in the May issue of Health?
Health Cover Star for May:
Giada De Laurentiis is featured both on the cover and inside the magazine and I just can’t get over how beautiful she is (I don’t watch The Food Network.) The multiple show host and chef has a new book out which talks about how she prepares meals for her family Weeknights with Giada. The family including Giada’s husband (Todd Thompson) and four year-old daughter Jade.
Some of her tips for keeping a healthy fridge include stocking up on nonperishables and then only needing to buy fresh veggies and meat when at the supermarket. Giada also keeps her potions in check makes sure to practice yoga at least three times per week to keep in shape.
Another fun fact about Giada is apparently she curses like a sailor (I like her more already!) and is trying to curb that before her daughter picks up the bad habit. (Good luck with that Giada!)
