Sheryl Crow: Being healthy is fun
Sheryl Crow’s cancer-fighting Eskimo diet “makes healthy food fun”, according to celebrity chef Chuck White.
The Grammy Award winning singer was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2006, and after surgery and radiation treatments, announced she was in remission.
The 49-year-old songstress and food expert Chuck have since written a book titled If It Makes You Healthy, and Sheryl credits the healthy foods included in there for changing her way of life.
Chuck says the Eskimo Diet, which Sheryl calls it, features a lot of salmon, tomatoes and brown rice, so he had to get creative with ingredients.
“Sheryl’s not a huge fan of tomatoes or salmon, so what we did was get creative with colourful vegetables, which have more nutrients than green vegetables,” he told the National Enquirer.
“I found ways to incorporate tomatoes into her regular diet to make it more fun, interesting and flavourful. Making healthy food fun – that’s the key.”
Sheryl has previously spoken about her cancer diagnosis. The stunning star explained the effect it had on her life.
“My cancer diagnosis screamed ‘vulnerable’ to me,” she wrote in her book.
“Never once in my life had I really considered what I put into my body as having a direct connection to my wellness.
“I learned the benefits of nutrients such as omega-3 and lycopene and began what I call an Eskimo diet – lots of salmon, brown rice and colourful vegetables.”
