Dino Thompson-Sarmiento of FENUXE Magazine recently chatted with Chef LaLa about staying healthy and fit.
Internationally known Chef LaLa is featured on the Winter 2011 cover and, inside the magazine, healthy eating and exercise advice —and the recipes.

I just opened an email invitation to a New Year’s Day “Open House” and couldn’t be more thrilled! Not only do my husband, son and I have fun plans for an otherwise “let’s-lay-low” kind of day, but also the menu sounds “safe” —diabetes-wise, that is.
The following interview is a story of a totally different initial career path being altered by a life-changing event, leading to personal and professional fulfillment as Chef LaLa. It should be evident that she not only enjoys what she does with Latin cooking, she takes pride in her mission to educate people, kids and adults alike, that eating healthy can be just as pleasurable, indeed more so, than the salty, sugary, greasy fast-food habit.
Chef LaLa took some time out of her day to talk to Savvy Miss about the importance of good nutrition and raising awareness about diabetes, a disease that affects almost 20 million Americans.
World-renowned chef, caterer, television host, nutritionist and author, Chef LaLa’s life is a poetic maze. In our intimate interview I tried to decode the operating principles behind her success with pre-written tailored questions.
