To stay in shape, the 51-year-old actress chooses her foods well. She’s already at the age where fast food and sugary snacks are no longer appealing. Of course, this makes opting healthy foods easier for her. Her diet plan primarily consists of lean protein and plenty of fruits and vegetables. She also gets healthy fats from fish, preferring it more than red meat. For snacks, she has fruits, yogurt, and almonds. They’re easier to bring when she’s on the go and also help to keep her full.
