Top Chef television host Padma Lakshmi is making up for “bad behavior with good behavior” by eating mostly plant-based between shoots of her popular TV show. At home, the single mother says her favorite meals consist of lentil and beans, tomato-based stews, lots of greens, and fresh ingredients like garlic, ginger, chilies, and cilantro.
