What's in Her Bag?

On screen, Kate Walsh has made a career of saving lives as a Los Angeles MD in the hit TV show Private Practice. But off screen, you'll find her working as an activist, championing the fight to save the world's sea turtles. The Northern California native is used to getting suited up and hopping in the sea herself: "I tend to be very active on the beach—snorkeling, playing sports, and swimming in the ocean and the pool." When she craves a little R&R, just what does the (TV) doctor order? Fresh salsa and guac over tortilla chips and ice-cold margaritas for a favorite beachside Mexi-fix.
