Beth Behrs has been making us laugh as Caroline Channing on 2 Broke Girls since 2011, but now she has some new titles to add to her resume: author, foodie and empowerer. The actress’s new cookbook and lifestyle guide, The Total ME-Tox: How to Ditch Your Diet, Move Your Body, & Love Your Life , hits shelves on May 2, sharing easy recipes and exercise tips that are perfect for a busy collegiette.
We had the chance to talk with Beth about what a “ME-tox” is, what she eats for a quick pick-me-up and why she and her grandma have a special bond over cauliflower.
Beth Behrs: “ME-tox” came much later, and I actually just kind of made up the word because I was trying to think of something that would make clear that this book was encouraging women, in a smart and friendly and warm and open way, to be human and not superhuman. At the end of the day, it’s about self-love and self-care, and through that getting empowerment—whatever that is for you, if it’s a “meh” workout or if you do like sweets sometimes. And how to truly enjoy your life while still living a healthy lifestyle.
