On November 26th, Drescher premiered a brand-new weekday talk show that "cover[s] all of her passions, everything from pedicures to politics." Her three-week trial could turn into a national talk show on FOX in the fall. Something else she loves: making sure she eats a healthy breakfast before kicking off the show.
"I have to get myself enough fuel to tape two shows a day, but can't get weighed down with heavy foods before I step on stage. I do my best to keep my breakfast simple and organic. I get the energy I need with a bagel and a spoonful of granola mixed with non-fat Greek yogurt. Fresh fruit is a must--cantaloupe is a favorite. Essential for my morning is a cup of hot tea--it warms me up and gets my blood flowing. And Esther Drescher, my little Ed McMahon, always keeps me company--on stage and off!"

Tea is great for morning sippin'--drinking at least two cups of green or black tea a day may cut your risk for ovarian cancer by nearly half, a study in the Archives of Internal Medicine shows. Also, a study showed that women with the highest intake of catechins, antioxidants in tea that may accelerate fat burn, gained less weight over 14 years than those who sipped less. White and green brews have the most catechins.
