Tracy Pollan may crave healthy food—“I just feel funny if I’m not eating a vegetable,” says the actress who came to fame on the sitcom Family Ties in the ’80s—but she does like something sweet after dinner.
That might be her niece Micaela’s Nirvana Bars, found in The Pollan Family Table, the new book by Tracy, 54, and her sisters Corky, Lori and Dana.
The bars of graham crackers, nuts, chocolate chips and coconut are a hit with her kids—Sam Michael, 25; twins Aquinnah and Schuyler, 19; and Esmé, 12—as well as husband-actor Michael J. Fox.
The book includes tried-and-true and healthy contributions from Pollan, her siblings, and their children. This Thanksgiving, the Pollans will be getting together to cook— and enjoy—many of the recipes in the book. “We’ll all be back in the kitchen together,” Pollan says.
