Emme, supermodel, television personality, author, lecturer, clothing designer, and nationally recognized body image and self esteem advocate has a clear mission: to awaken the inner magnificence inherent in each of us. It’s no wonder People magazine selected her twice as one of the “50 Most Beautiful People” and Ladies’ Home Journal chose her as one of the “Most Important Women in America” and one of the “Most Fascinating Women of the Year.” And the accolades don’t stop there: she was honored as a Glamour magazine “Woman of the Year” and as one of Biography magazine’s “25 Most Influential Women.”

Emme burst onto the scene as the world’s first full-figured supermodel hosting E! Entertainment Television’s “Fashion Emergency” and became the first full figured model ever to land a spokesperson’s contract with a cosmetics company when she signed with Revlon.

Emme is a vocal advocate for people of all ages to be fit and to live a healthy lifestyle and blogs on her website and in the Living Section at The Huffington Post.  She promotes and exemplifies a wellness lifestyle, positive body image and self-esteem and self-acceptance and has penned several books including her latest, What Are You Hungry For? (Harper Collins, 2007), a children’s book that addresses the reality that children have many hungers, including emotional ones.

5 cups of rice milk
1 C chopped parsley
1 C chopped basil
