In this episode, Richard and Kelly chat about:

  • What meals keep the stars fit, toned and healthy while still satisfying their cravings
  • The small, imaginative tweaks you can make to recipes to achieve indulgent-like taste without added fat, calories or sodium
  • How Dwyane Wade inspired the creation of Richard’s famous Flash Sauce and its many uses in the kitchen
