Actress Haylie Duff is known for starring in 7th Heaven and Napolean Dynamite (and for being older sister to Hilary). But lately, she’s accepted a new kind of role: healthy cooking instructor.

Duff is the host of Real Girl’s Kitchen, a Cooking Channel show which was just renewed for a second season, and the author of The Real Girl’s Kitchen cookbook, both of which grew out of her blog of the same name.

On all of these platforms, the Los Angeles-based star shares recipes and tips for those who want to eat well but don’t have anything close to a culinary education. “It’s for people who are inspired and excited to learn how to make great recipes that don’t require 100 steps,” she says. (Oh, like most of us.)

She also places a huge emphasis on fresh ingredients and healthy habits like drinking green smoothies. “I try to drink one everyday!” she says. “They have been my saving grace throughout my pregnancy. I love how healthy I feel after drinking one.”

Here, Duff shares one of her go-to recipes, packed with greens, fresh fruit, and her favorite ingredient, lemon. (“I put lemon in everything!” she gushes.) Try blending it up with that new gadget you got over the holidays—or in your trusty Nutribullet. —Lisa Elaine Held
