Cynthia Nixon maintains her good health by eating well. She starts her day with a healthy breakfast, which also helps her avoid unhealthy meals throughout the day. “I always like to start my morning with a good amount of fruit. I really like pineapple, particularly because of the enzymes that it has,” said the actress. “Sometimes I have oatmeal. But if I’m feeling like I really want to be watching my weight more, then I definitely do a protein, like an omelet, scrambled eggs or some smoked salmon.”
