The television star takes care of herself by following a vegan diet. According to her, she has started taking on a plant-based diet since she was 19. This has also led her to work with PETA to promote veganism. “My passion and love for planet Earth and its creatures informs my surfing, my vegetarianism and the documentaries I produce. I love to be outside; I literally grew up in the ocean and am constantly thinking about when I can get back into the water. I have a boundless interest and love for the natural world,” said the actress. When eating out, she loves dining at the “Native Foods and Veggie Grill for a quick meal”. Fortunately, there are lots of vegan restaurants she can choose from. When she’s not busy, she loves to prepare her own vegan meals.
