Laila Ali is a world-class athlete, television host, cooking enthusiast and mother of two young children with husband Curtis Conway. Oh, and she’s also a killer ballroom dancer, which she proved in her third-place win on “Dancing with the Stars.” But did you know that Laila, who is the daughter of legendary boxer Muhammad Ali, is also all about the organic life? I didn’t either, until I sat down with the star of CBS Sports’ “We Need To Talk” and FYI’s “Late Night Chef Fight” to talk about Laila Ali’s transition towards a healthier lifestyle, in this Mommy Greenest exclusive interview.
So that was–hands down–one of the best days of my life. Not only did I get to celebrate the launch of The Mommy Greenest Guide to Pregnancy, Birth & Beyond at the amazing Naturepedic organic mattress gallery in Beverly Hills, but one of my heroes showed up to the party!
My interview with Laila Ali made the cover of Organic Spa magazine! I had such an amazing time talking with the four-time undefeated boxing world champion, who is currently hosting CBS’ We Have to Talk, the first female sports show to appear on network television. You will never believe the story she told me about her inspiration to become a boxer. Spoiler alert: Her dad had nothing to do with it! Laila also shared some must-have fitness secrets, as well as the one all-purpose natural health, beauty and wellness ingredient she can’t live without. Read all about it, on Organic Spa!
