The always glowing Sunny Anderson is the host of the Food Network series, Cooking for Real. And even though her show primarily focuses on comfort foods such as grits and fried chicken she has had to learn not to eat all those yummy foods whenever she pleases. A few years ago the 5’5″ chef got up to 200 pounds which is a lot of weight for such a small frame. She has since learned to start all of her meals with a salad in order to fill up on veggies and if she eats pasta she’ll top it with capers and olive oil instead of fattening cream sauce. After a lot of hard work and dedication she lost 30 pounds! She told People magazine,
“I don’t want to deprive myself. I’m just trying not to overindulge.”
Below, she shares a tasty salad recipe that will give you plenty of fiber and even a little bit of protein.
