Scott Clarke/ESPN Images(NEW YORK) -- Four-time Olympic gold medalist and Basketball Hall of Famer Lisa Leslie was one of the most recognizable figures in the sport across two decades. Since her playing days, she has enjoyed a successful modeling career, earned an MBA, and is an author. She has also continued her involvement in sports, working as a commentator.

Leslie spoke exclusively with ABC News, talking about another one of her passions: eating healthy. She cooks for herself and her kids, and discussed the ways she fuels her family on a daily basis.

She offered some tips for parents on how they too can get build a healthy diet for their kids and maintain that same lifestyle for themselves:

1. "It's all about balance"


Leslie says it is "all about balance," and mostly, that applies to how parents balance their time. Leslie starts her days at 5:30 in the morning, packing lunches and putting together bagged snacks, such as cucumbers or carrots, to fuel her and her kids throughout the day.

On the days she is not prepared, she says she "doesn't make the best choices" when it comes to food.

Leslie also encourages eating protein-filled packaged snacks, such as packaged meat strips from Lorissa's Kitchen.

2. Put your kids in a position to make the healthy choice

Leslie does not only prepare nutritious meals for her children, but teaches them how to make healthy choices for themselves, showing them how to read the labels on food when they go to the grocery store.

Her advice: "If you choose something that's packaged, look on the back and figure it out: how much sugar is actually inside of that."

3. You can have the occasional sweet treat.... sometimes

If her daughter and son are invited to a birthday party or family function, Leslie has no problem letting them have a piece of cake or a cookie. She has young kids, and knows on occasion, or maybe on a few occasions, they desire a sweet treat or two.

However, Leslie says as a parent, she is responsible for "managing the sugar intake that our children are getting and also the nutrients."

She will not provide her children with juices, sodas, or foods with added sugar, and suggests hydrating kids with water, milk, or coconut water.

Jared Wickerham/Getty Images(BRISTOL, Conn.) -- Family members of former New England Patriots star and convicted murderer Aaron Hernandez are saying goodbye at a private funeral Monday afternoon in his hometown of Bristol, Connecticut.

Hernandez died on April 19, found hanging from a bedsheet in his cell at the Souza-Baranowski Correctional Center in Shirley, Massachusetts, the Worcester County District Attorney’s Office said. His death was ruled a suicide.

"The family of Aaron Hernandez wishes to thank all of you for the thoughtful expressions of condolences," the family said in a statement, according to Laura Soll, a spokeswoman for the Connecticut Funeral Directors Association. "We wish to say goodbye to Aaron in a private ceremony and thank everyone in advance for affording us a measure of privacy during this difficult time."

Five days before his death, Hernandez, 27, was acquitted in a double murder that occurred in 2012.

Hernandez was already serving a life sentence after he was convicted of murder in 2015 for the 2013 killing of Odin Lloyd in North Attleboro, Massachusetts. Lloyd was dating the sister of Shayanna Jenkins Hernandez, who was Hernandez's fiancée.

ABC News(NEW YORK) -- Kobe Bryant said he doesn’t miss basketball.

“No, I don’t. It’s crazy,” the former Los Angeles Laker said on ABC News' Good Morning America. “I started playing when I was 2. After playing for 20 years in the league, what I have now is -- everything I’ve learned from the game, I carry with me to this day. The game has never truly left me. Physically, yes. But emotionally, and the things that I write, all stem from the game. So it’s still a part of me.”

Bryant, 38, said it was important for athletes to understand there will be an end to their career on the court.

“The other thing is that, for the athletes that come next, understand that there is a finale to it. And that’s OK,” he said.

“It’s very hard to let go of something that you’ve done for half your life. It’s kind of become who you are. But it’s a difference between doing what you do versus understanding that that is not who you are. Hopefully, other athletes can see that and understand that,” Bryant continued.

The NBA superstar is now flexing his filmmaker skills with a movie, Dear Basketball, which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York on Saturday. The six-minute short film is an animated adaption of the poem Bryant wrote when he decided to retire from basketball.

“I tried to write it in a very visual way versus simply coming out and saying, ‘This is how I feel,’” he explained. “I tried to put it through story. You see the whole dedication and commitment [of his childhood playing basketball] through rolling my dad’s tube socks. You see it through all the VHS tapes of all the past games. So you can see the growth and see the love.”

Bryant teamed up with veteran animator Glen Keane and legendary composer John Williams for Dear Basketball.

“That’s the beauty of creating things. You have the opportunity to work with people that want to create great things. And I couldn’t have been more fortunate to come out in the first project and work with Glen Keane and John Williams,” Bryant said.

Charleston RiverDogs(CHARLESTON, S.C.) -- A night out at the ballpark turned silly for fans of the minor league RiverDogs in Charleston, South Carolina.

Nearly 5,000 people gathered at Joseph P. Riley Jr. Park Saturday night to watch some baseball and make history with Silly String.

Officials handed out 4,025 canisters of the aerosol string toy during the game’s seventh-inning stretch to set a record for the largest Silly String fight.

The end result were stands at the ballpark that looked a lot like a gigantic spider web.

iStock/Thinkstock(NEW YORK) -- The New York Rangers and Edmonton Oilers won their series-clinching games on Saturday night to advance to the second round of the NHL Stanley Cup playoffs.

The Rangers defeated the Montreal Canadiens 3-1 at home and the Oiles ousted the Sharks with a 3-1 victory in San Jose.

After trailing Montreal 2-1 in the series, New York ripped off three straight wins with a spread out offense: eighteen players scored at least one point in the series.

Now, the Rangers will play in the second round for the fifth time in six years, facing the winner of the Ottawa-Boston series.

As for the Oilers, it wasn't all about Conor McDavid. Goalie Cam Talbot had a strong series, posting two shutouts and allowing just a single goal in the deciding game.

The Oilers, who are in the playoffs for the first time since 2006, will face a team that's reached the postseason in five straight years: the Anaheim Ducks.

Andy King/Getty Images(MINNEAPOLIS) -- Minnesota Twins' Miguel Sano and Detroit Tigers pitcher Matthew Boyd were ejected from Saturday's game for their roles in a bench-clearing brawl.

It all started in the third inning when Detroit's JaCoby Jones was hit in the face by an 89-m.p.h. fastball from the Twins' Justin Haley that caused his mouth to bleed.

Two innings later, Boyd threw a fastball behind Sano, who pointed a finger back at the pitcher. Detroit catcher James McCann intervened, trying to get in front of Sano, who then appeared to shove him out of the way.

Both benches and bullpens emptied, and Sano and Boyd were ejected.

Jones received nine stitches after the hit and will go on the 10-day disabled list.
