About Rebecca Leffler:
Rebecca Leffler is an author, journalist and consultant who, after a long career in entertainment as France Correspondent for The Hollywood Reporter and film critic on French TV network Canal, traded the red carpet for the yoga mat and champagne for green smoothies. Her best-selling French book "Green, Glam & Gourmande" (Marabout) has been translated to Spanish and Dutch and the English-language adaptation "Très Green, Très Clean, Très Chic: Eat (and live) the New French Way with Plant-based, Gluten-free Recipes for Every Season". She published a follow-up book “Green, Glam & Happy” (Marabout) in 2015 focusing on the science of happiness and food and lifestyle tips that contribute to general well-being, particularly on digestion and brain function. “Green, Glam & Gourmet” was released in “Poche” (paperback) in France in 2016 and "Green & Glam Attitude" will be released in France in October, 2017.
