Healthy After School Snacks with Camila Alves

I had so much fun shooting this video with Camila Alves at my house last week. Can’t believe she managed to squeeze in time for it on the morning of the annual MJ&M event she co-hosts to raise funds for her and husband Matthew McConaughey’s incredible charity, just keep livin, which we got to talk all about in the video above.

I’ve loved getting to know Camila over the past year or so, and the warmth and generosity you’ll see on display in the video above reflect exactly who she is in real life — this gal is the real deal. Target partnered with just keep livin to help them expand the program, so I was thrilled when they asked us to team up and share some of our kids’ favorite after-school snacks, as well as how the foundation is changing the lives of kids across America.

    Super lovely video with very healthy recipes….noted the little white colander which was chipped a bit just like mine are. Makes it all more real for the presentation.
