Forget 7-11. When Gossip Girl star Kelly Rutherford has cravings, she has to race to the farmer's market.

"I crave a lot of greens when I'm pregnant," says Rutherford, 40, who's due to welcome her second child, a daughter, within days. "I love kale and chard, so I'll steam that and then I'll make an organic turkey burger."

The actress says her second pregnancy feels more relaxed. "I'm making it a point to rest more," says Rutherford, who together with son Hermés, 2 1/2, attended the 3rd Annual Kidstock Music and Arts Festival presented by UGG benefiting One Voice and the Scholars Program in Beverly Hills, Calif., on Sunday.

She has also taken a "sustainable" approach to prepping for her daughter's arrival, re-using many of her son's baby furniture – including a white Target changing table – and baby clothes. "I've been trying to be smart about it," she says.

But she does admit to giving in now and then. "The girly clothes are fun," says Rutherford, who recently went on a shopping spree at Beverly Hills' lola et moi.

Rutherford, who is currently getting divorced from husband Daniel Giersch, admits to not having exercised "even one time" during her second pregnancy. "We go on play dates and end up in the pool," she says about her son. "I'm just so much more active being a mom with a 2-year-old."
