Her new book “The Land of Secret Superpowers: Vegetables” (January 2023) is her first publication for children. Geared towards toddlers and preschoolers, the delightfully illustrated book entices little ones to open their eyes (and their mouths) to the heroic possibilities of the delicious foods we are all meant to eat, setting them up to be healthy humans and also help set parents up for peace in the kitchen! It also shows how the vegetables are grown featuring a multicultural cast of illustrated children.
Devin truly walks her talk sharing her mantra, “You don’t have to deprive yourself to be fit and healthy.”
As a sought-after spokesperson, she has lent her notoriety and expertise to brands including Albertson’s, Ninja Blender, Circulon Cookware, Weight Watchers Smart Ones, Jennie-O Turkey, Lynx Grills, The American Heart Association, and NextDoor, to name a few. Alexander is also a popular resource for diabetes and has worked with Abbot Freestyle Libre and American Diabetes Association.
In 2018, Devin adopted her foster daughter from the Los Angeles foster care system and “Mom” is now her proudest title. She is constantly adapting and channeling her food and nutrition knowledge to share with her “Mom Tribe,” imparting realistic tips and her secrets of how she gets her daughter to “attack” platters of veggies and devour healthy foods many adults have not even tried. The response she received was the impetus behind “The Land of Secret Superpowers: Vegetables” along with her Fit Mom Fit Kids platform. Devin’s parenting videos have become viral sensations, racking-up as many as 6.7M views, many with hundreds and thousands of shares.
Devin continues to passionately advocate for the 425,000+ precious children currently in the U.S. foster care system. In her “spare time” she plays competitive tennis and with her daughter “Jelly Bean”, frequents aquariums and as many other fun, educational events as possible.
