The 51-year-old actress stays in shape by sticking to healthy eating habits. In an interview with People, she said: “Eating healthy is a big part of my life because it’s something I can really have control over and it doesn’t take up a lot of my time.” She continued: “And that’s something that I know impacts my heart health, which is as important to me as how I’m looking on the outside.”
While she admits to being a foodie, the actress-singer knows how to balance her food consumption. One of her go-to snacks is a green smoothie while her ultimate breakfast meal is a bowl of oatmeal with a mix of coconut oil, almond milk, and maple syrup. She also confesses to indulging her cravings. “I love pasta, and if I was really, really going to cheat and be really bad and didn’t care about calories, I go for chocolate cake. Sugar is something that I really try to stay away from, though,” she said.
