As private chefs to Hollywood A-listers like Jennifer Aniston and John Travolta, Jewels and Jill Elmore have proven they know great food. In their first cookbook, The Family Chef, they're making it possible for everyone to eat like Hollywood's elite (it's easier than you think!). From tostadas to Thai beef salads, these sisters know how to make eating and preparing healthy food fun. Believe me, you'll never look at a lentil the same way again.
Stephanie Snipes: One thing that really stood out to me when reading your book is that you manage to make healthy food exciting. That isn't an easy thing.
Jewels: Well, thank you, we try. It's really pushed us, being private chefs and working for people who have access to eating at the best restaurants and different places around the world. [We] really try to do the best job we can and really make this healthy food very tasty and not feel like you're on a diet, because I don't like the idea of going on a diet. It's just a way of eating all the time.
SS: I think that's key. People think eating healthy has to be all about plain chicken breasts and brown rice.
Jill: You'd have to want to like shoot yourself if you thought that's all you could eat for the rest of your life.
