Writer and cre­ator of “The Kick-Starter Meal Plan,” Page 76 A fam­ily ill­ness in­spired Alexa Uherek to get into nutri­tion. “My dad has a se­ri­ous au­toim­mune dis­ease, and when his symp­toms started get­ting worse, he be­gan re­search­ing and chang­ing his diet, which then sparked my in­ter­est,” she says. “I dug a lit­tle deeper and got hooked. Nutri­tion is so com­plex, and I am al­ways learn­ing some­thing.”

Out­side the kitchen, Uherek does Ta­batas as her work­out of choice. “But I also love func­tional fit­ness for longevity and in­jury pre­ven­tion,” she says. “I want to be able to ex­er­cise un­til I’m 80!”
