Pregnant Kerry Washington: What Healthy Treat is She Craving Right Now?

Kerry Washington is pretty much flawless. So it stands to reason that her baby, due in the Spring of 2014, will also be flawless. Mother, child, and NFL player Nnamdi Asomugha will make a perfect little family, and their lives will be... flawless.

So, it comes as no surprise, that when Kerry Washington gets a pregnancy craving, she indulges with something equally flawless. People has the details on Kerry’s favorite pregnancy treat. And it’s healthy, nutritious, and all-around good for body and baby.

The Scandal star is known for eating healthy, and lately, she’s been all about nutritionist Kimberly Snyder’s organic smoothies. In particular: The Glowing Green Smoothie.


1 head romaine lettuce, chopped

3-4 stalks celery, chopped

½ head of a large bunch or ¾ of a small bunch of spinach

1 apple, cored and chopped

1 pear, cored and chopped

1 banana, sliced

Juice of ½ fresh lemon

? bunch cilantro, optional

? bunch parsley, optional

1. Add 1½ cups water and chopped head of romaine to the blender. Starting the blender at low speed, mix until smooth.

2. Gradually moving to higher speeds, add the celery, spinach, apple, and pear. Then add the cilantro and parsley, as desired. Add the banana and lemon juice last.

Kerry’s also indulging in things like quinoa “fried rice” (spoiler alert: it's not actually fried).  ”I try for the most part to eat things that are going to make me feel better, not worse,” Kerry said.

In other news, anyone else think her child’s going to emerge from the womb looking pretty much like a mini Superman (or Wonder Woman)?
