Sheryl Crow is a busy rock star and activist raising two boys as a single mother. When Crow battled breast cancer five years ago, she took that as a wake-up call to eat better. Around this time she met chef Chuck White, who taught Sheryl how to eat seasonal, vitamin-rich food that would boost her health and singing voice.
The two have now teamed up on a cookbook called ‘If It Makes You Healthy,’ which is brimming with delicious and nutritious recipes.
#How did you meet Chuck ??
I have worked with Chuck off and on for three years. He’s extraordinarily talented. We have this mutual love for incorporating the healthy components of food and the knowledge of wellness and disease with prevention and I wanted him to share what it is that he does. He had been on tour with me and cooked in my home while I had been recording.
#When you’re not touring or doing albums do you cook for yourself ??
For the most part when I’m home I cook for me and my kids. We sit down and eat meals. I cook the things I learned from Chuck. I’m always looking for healthy ways to feed my kids. My 10-month-old eats everything. Wyatt’s a little pickier. The one thing he loves is pasta and there are lots of different ways to make pasta with quinoa or spaghetti squash so he’s not just eating plain carbs. There’s always creative ways to feed kids.
