A Seafood Classic, Less the Carbs
Being Mary Jane
star Gabrielle Union is a woman after our own heart: She loves bacon
and has been known to stick it out through a tough workout in the name of peach cobbler doughnut bread pudding
. Indulgences aside, though, Union's a healthy eater, thanks to nutritious meals from her personal chef, Richard Ingraham, who cooks healthy comfort food for Union, her husband, NBA star Dwyane Wade, and their family. The dishes Ingraham cooks for Union and Wade tend to feature seafood prominently, as well as whole grains and lots of veggies. Take, for example, Ingraham's recipe for crab cakes, featured in his cookbook, Eating Well to Win
: He omits the bread crumbs, and serves the cakes with a tomato-quinoa salad and lemon-honey vinaigrette that's much lighter than traditional tartar or remoulade sauces.
