The sculptures by British designer Thomas Heatherwick  — currently on view at the Nasher Sculpture Center in Dallas — are awe-inspiring, to say the very least. Minimalist construction and mixed media combine for unparalleled scale and impact — a very cool viewing experience.

The name of Jodi Moreno’s blog — “What’s Cooking Good Looking" — sums up her approach to beauty and wellness perfectly. The natural foods chef understands the link between healthy foods and that natural glow, and her recipes are comprised of delicious, wholesome ingredients that pack a double punch as beauty superfoods. We sat down to chat about her daily routine, and to get a yummy end-of-summer gazpacho recipe that you’re guaranteed to love."I’m a firm believer that beauty comes from the inside out, starting with the foods we eat and drink each day. Healthy habits will make you glow! I start my morning with yoga or a run on the beach, followed by a green smoothie loaded with local organic greens and fruit. I also indulge on raw foods throughout the day. When it comes to skin, I believe that less is more — that goes for both makeup and sun exposure! A good quality BB Cream is the way to go, since you get a little coverage with the bonus of sun protection."Cucumber Radish Gazpacho
Ingredients
1/4 cup of olive oil
1/2 cup of water
2 tablespoons of white wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon of salt
A pinch of red pepper flakes
Pepper
1/2 an avocado
2 large cucumbers, chopped
1 tablespoon of shallots, diced
1 small clove of garlic, minced
3-5 radishes, white or red (if red, peel the outside so it does not affect the color of the soup)
1 tablespoon of pine nuts, lightly toasted and roughly chopped
A pinch or two of microgreens

Instructions

Place the olive oil, water, vinegar, salt, red pepper flakes, a few cracks of black pepper, avocado, and the cucumbers into a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth. Add the shallots, garlic, and three of the radishes, and blend again until smooth. Taste and add more radishes if you’d like. (Some radishes are spicier than others, so it depends on the radish and your taste preference. I like to err on the side of more radishes, for more of a bite.) Adjust seasoning if needed and enjoy!

Homemade Health Bread  
It’s times like these, rushing around New York for fashion week events, that make us grateful for simple, nutritious recipes we can grab on the go — like a slice of this health bread from My New Roots. Packed with seeds and nuts, it’s a make-ahead snack that’ll keep you fueled all day long.
Ingredients
1 cup sunflower seeds
½ cup flax seeds
½ cup hazelnuts or almonds
1 ½ cups rolled oats
2 tablespoons chia seeds
4 tablespoons psyllium seed husks (3 tablespoons if using psyllium husk powder)
1 teaspoon fine grain sea salt (add ½ teaspoon if using coarse salt)
1 tablespoon maple syrup (for sugar-free diets, use a pinch of stevia)
3 tablespoons melted coconut oil or ghee
1 ½ cups water
Directions
In a flexible, silicon loaf pan combine all dry ingredients, stirring well. Whisk maple syrup, oil and water together in a measuring cup. Add this to the dry ingredients and mix very well until everything is completely soaked and dough becomes very thick. (If the dough is too thick to stir, add one or two teaspoons of water until the dough is manageable.) Smooth out the top with the back of a spoon. Let sit out on the counter for at least 2 hours, all day, or overnight. To ensure the dough is ready, it should retain its shape even when you pull the sides of the loaf pan away from it it.
Preheat oven to 350°F / 175°C. Place loaf pan in the oven on the middle rack and bake for 20 minutes. Remove bread from loaf pan, place it upside down directly on the rack, and bake for another 30-40 minutes. Bread is done when it sounds hollow when tapped. Let cool completely before slicing.

Store bread in a tightly sealed container for up to five days. Freezes well, too – slice before freezing for quick and easy toast. Enjoy!
