Former model Candice Kumai admits that she starved herself back in her runway days — and she was miserable. Candice found her “inner sexy” after making a drastic life change: She got out of the modeling business and went to culinary school at Le Cordon Bleu. Now an Iron Chef judge and a regular contributor to Cooking Channel’s Unique Eats, she’s out to prove that eating great and looking great don’t have to be mutually exclusive.
Candice’s new cookbook, Cook Yourself Sexy, is full of healthy, satisfying recipes and advice on how to maintain your sexiest self. She’s not about deprivation — there are two full chapters on dessert, and she always favors “FWBs” (Foods With Benefits) over low-cal imitation foods.
Want a sneak peek? Start cooking yourself sexy with a few of Candice’s favorites:
- Creamy Dreamy Butternut Squash Mac and Cheese
- Whole Roasted Go-To Chicken
