The Chew’s Daphne Oz stopped by Daily Shot to talk about her new book, Relish: An Adventure in Food, Style, and Everyday Fun.
Daphne has been passionate about food for as long as she can remember, and now her focus is on both quality and nutrition. “I grew up the only fat kid in a crazy health nut family,” said Daphne, whose father is Dr. Mehmet Oz. Her book shows a picture of her heaviest weight, which happened to coincide with her high school prom. She calls that ‘the wake-up call’ that changed her attitude about food.
So she told Ali the five things she keeps in her kitchen that help her make food that’s both easy to prepare and nutritious. “The key is to set yourself up for success by having things in on hand that are going to do most of your work for you.”
First, canned beans are an easy, healthy add to stews, tacos, and stir-fries.
Next, canned jellies and sauces add a quick extra pop of flavor to any dish.
Dried Grains such as quinoa and brown rice are whol...Read More »

On today’s episode: Matthew Hussey, a relationship expert on the new NBC show ‘Ready for Love.’ He’s got a new book out called, “Get the Guy,” but he joined Ali to talk about the biggest mistakes people make after they’ve gotten the guy (or girl), and are trying to have an actual relationship.
The first one, Matthew said--in his charming British accent--is competitiveness. “The key to any relationship is the extent to which you see each other as a team.” Couples who compete with each other won’t stay couples for long. Ali insisted that an exception should be made for tennis.
Next on the list is laziness, when people get too comfortable and stop doing the things that attracted their partner in the first place.
Another big relationship destroyer is overanalysis. “A guy will say something and a woman will go back to her friends and say, ‘what did he mean by that?’” Matthew says that men tend to be less detail oriented than women, and therefore women can drive themselves craz...Read More »
Does your child turn his nose up at vegetables? Does your daughter refuse to eat anything but spaghetti? Chef Curtis Stone is the author of a new book called, “What’s For Dinner: Delicious Recipes for Busy Life,” and as the father of 17-month-old Hudson, he has some ideas on how to get your kids to try new things and avoid common mealtime mistakes.
Now, Curtis once got Hudson to try a mild curry, but you don’t have to be the host of Top Chef masters to diversify your child’s palate. Curtis told Ali that one of the top mistakes parents make when feeding kids is that they run out of patience. If Hudson is spitting food back out at him, “I’ll give him a break for ten minutes, and then try again, and then he’s good as gold.”
Another mistake? Introducing processed fun foods like PB& J too early. “What happens is, they want that, and they start thinking, well, I don’t like this carrot as much as that other thing you gave me.”
For Curtis’s hints on how to put a positive spin o...Read More »
What’s your number? Yes that number, you know the one. The most recent stats from the CDC say that the average woman has about four different sex partners in her lifetime. Which means a lot of women lied when they were talking to the CDC.
Ophira Eisenberg is the author of the new book, “Screw Everyone: Sleeping My Way To Monogamy.” She joined Ali to talk about why more is better.
Ophira estimates she slept with around 40 different guys before she met her husband, and it’s not something she’s ashamed of at all. “The average of four is ridiculous,” she says. “That’s a lie. Or I feel bad for you.”
As a young person, Ophira says, “I didn’t know who I was….I think of it like a scientist. You need a large sample size so you can figure out what are the controls, what are the things that didn’t work out, and then you end up with your one specimen.”
Ali asked Ophira about the notion that women should wait a certain amount of time before sleeping with a guy. “I feel like th...Read More »
If you are a gay man, or just a person who loves them, you’ve heard of Grindr, the most popular dating app out there. Some people might argue about the use of the word ‘dating,’ but no one can argue its success. In the four years it’s been around, it’s garnered more than six million users, 2.5 million of them in the last twelve months alone.
Now, Ali may be a married straight woman, but she was dying to have a frank conversation about Grindr with someone who had used it. Like a lot of straight people out there, she was curious about the casual nature of a Grindr hookup, where guys basically choose a potential hookup from a list of nearby users on their phone.
Sex educator Lucas Brooks offered to come in and break it down for her: how the app works, how the hookups are negotiated, and what happens when you meet up with a guy and he’s, like, fugz.
For another example of Ali’s willingness to ask the questions everyone else is too shy to ask…check out the video. To see more o...Read More »
