Chef Art Smith, who has cooked for Oprah Winfrey and other celebrities and is the executive chef and co-owner of five restaurants, shares his 12 trips for eating healthy on the road.
Smith is a fan of raw and fresh foods, but also likes to indulge on occasion with comfort foods, both at home and on the road. Smith’s healthy trip tips include packing almonds and fresh fruits like SweeTango apples, a new variety of apple that is a cross between the Honeycrisp and Zestar! varieties.
Smith is the judge of the SweeTango Writing Contest, which invites apple lovers to describe the sensation of biting into a SweeTango apple in 50 words or less for a chance to win $5,000, a box of SweeTango apples, and have their description featured in stores. The SweeTango Writing Contest ends Oct. 12, 2012. Entrants must be residents of the U.S. or Canada, excluding the province of Quebec.
"On the road, in the air, or at the table, eat food that’s fresh," advises Smith, who is the executive chef and co-owner of Table Fifty-Two in Chicago, Art and Soul in Washington, D.C., Southern Art and Bourbon Bar in Atlanta, Joanne Trattoria in New York City, and LYFE Kitchen in Palo Alto, Calif.
