Jessica Theroux's Healthy Menu

Starter: Mixed-Greens-and-Herb Salad with Figs and Walnuts

"Toss it with your hands," says Jessica Theroux, so you don't bruise the delicate salad leaves.

Main Course: Cod with Fresh Tomato Sauce and Arborio Rice

A garlic-tomato sauce for cod gets Sicilian flavor from orange zest and saffron.

Dessert: Honey-Roasted Apricots with Amaretti Cookies

Roasting apricots turns them into "sticky versions of themselves," says Theroux.
