Here's how I know I'm in the right place: The sun yawns across my back as I reach for another bouquet of aromatic mint, basil, rosemary, lavender. I bury my face in their leaves and buds. Scent envelops me, a suggestion of the soup, pesto, juice, body scrub to come. It's just the farmers' market, but it's magic—I'm in the epicenter of urban culinary potential, the birthing place of inspiration for my new book, Kale...

This month I'm taking on EatingWell's salad-a-day challenge. That's right—every day for the next 31 days I will be eating salad for lunch. (If you want to hold me to my word, follow me on Instagram to see my progress and delicious salad solutions.) But I'm not one of those people who packs the same thing for lunch every day. I get bored easily—when I'm cooking for myself, I never choose recipes that make more than 2 servings, because I only want to eat the leftovers once. Introducing the salad trend that's changing my life: spiralized...
