Through 18 months of intense rebuilding and renovating, an unconventional house designed in the 1960s by California architects  Buff & Hensman was transformed.  Owner, entrepreneur Derek  Mattison, and design collective Commune overhauled the home in star studded Nichols Canyon, taking it from Hollywood kitsch to mid-century cool.

Egg wrap filled with sweet potato, kale and pepperCompleted my morning challenge x3 sets of 5 minute running at speed of 11km, 12km and 13km, 3 sets of 24’s -6 reps of dead lifts, bent over rows, uplift rows and jump squats – finished with core work on swiss ball and cool down stretches incorporating yoga, pilates and stretching. To replenish energy, body fluids and restore balance I’ve opted for egg wraps.  These were prepared this morning – good thinking on my part as I’m ravenous!Eggs are measure of my 30% acidic food intake and well balanced with all the high alkalising vegetables – good source of protein for muscle repair and growth. Sweet potatoes are great to replenish energy and restore mineral balance in the body. Sweet potatoes are a fabulous source of potassium and sodium as well as carotenoids which convert into vitamin A in the body. Vitamin A (also called retinol) helps your eyes adjust to light changes when you come in from outside and also helps keep your eyes, skin and mucous membranes moist. Sweet potato are really satisfying (high in fibre) and will keep the stomach full for a longer time.  They are are also richer in nutrients than white potatoes. A perfect low GI food and cholesterol-free – sweet potatoes complement a lean alkaline diet. Kale is obscenely healthy, packed with beta carotene, folate and vitamin C, low in fat and high in fibre. It’s one of the richest vegetable sources of calcium, and contains iron, magnesium and potassium. Peppers are rich in vitamin C and carotenoids. Ingredients: 4 eggs, 2 tablespoon goat milk, 1 tablespoon chopped coriander, 2 handfuls of shredded kale, 2 handfuls of shredded spring cabbage, 1 chopped orange pepper, 1 peeled and chopped sweet potato, 2 tablespoons of olive oil.Serves 2-3Grease a non-stick frying pan with olive oil then heat pan on the hob until really hot.  Add eggs and swish pan so that egg mixture is evenly covering pan base. When you can see outside edges of egg mix is cooked pop the pan into the grill until it’s completely cooked. This will take no time at all so keep an eye on it!  Take pan out of grill and flip egg wrap on sheet of grease proof paper. Cover with another sheet of greaseproof paper  Prepare and cook another 2 eggs using same method. As the egg wraps cool, prepare your vegetables.  Steam sweet potato until tender and mash using a fork or mash utencil.  Steam cabbage and kale for about a minute only to retain nutrients.  Add cabbage, kale, peppers and coriander to sweet potato – combine well. Take one of your wraps and cover surface with vegetable mix – make sure that the wrap is evenly covered.  Roll up wrap tightly from one end to the other – tucking vegetables in as you roll.  You can then wrap them in cling film if you want to eat them later in the day – they will also keep their shape nicely if wrapped and improve in flavour .  You can fill these wraps with anything (healthy, of course!).

Homecourt Hand: Meet the Chandlers
Kimberly Chandler — recent New York Fashion Week front-row ubiquitor, mother of three, Hurricane Sandy relief effort organizer and owner of one of the chirpier personalities in the borough of Manhattan — learned something about her social resilience earlier this month when she attended The Costume Institute gala at The Metropolitan Museum of Art by herself.“I was so impressed with myself after it was over,” she says a few weeks later. “I feel like if you can walk that red carpet by yourself…I was like, ‘Oh, I’m good for anything else. I’m golden.’ I had a bit of a meltdown and then I pulled myself together.”It’s a few weeks after she donned a Rodarte dress and strode that red carpet solo. Chandler is sitting in an oversize leather armchair in a faux living room at Canoe Studios on the west side of Manhattan on a humid, occasionally rainy May weekday. Today she wears a white collared Suno dress with black and blue geometric accents on its shoulder and skirt. Though her chair is several times too large, her posture is finishing-school straight. A few feet away, her husband, Tyson Chandler, the 7-foot, 1-inch starting center for the New York Knicks, has no trouble filling out his matching seat.  For More
