Her carefulness in choosing only nutritious foods also allowed her to have a slender figure even after giving birth to two children.
In an interview, she said: “Good eating habits start at home. Fortunately, my parents were always conscientious about healthy eating, so we never had soda or candy in the house. I always remember my mom serving balanced meals: proteins, carbs and healthy fats. I definitely carried that into adulthood. In this day and age, I opt for the organic or non-GMO options available—but I won’t beat myself up for having a doughnut once in a while.” Thus, she allows herself to indulge her cravings, but only occasionally and in moderation. She does not practice any special kind of diet, just that she eats healthy and nutritious foods most of the time.
