The 50-year-old actress-singer takes care of her body and overall health through a clean diet plan without skipping meals. “I believe in eating breakfast for a king, lunch for a queen and dinner for a pauper. This morning, I had egg whites, yogurt, granola, and half a croissant. I knew it would be a crazy-busy day and that I’d only have time for a small lunch,” the actress said. Her go-to lunch, on the other hand, is “half a turkey sandwich and a piece of fruit.” As for her dinner, she shared: “If I’m by myself, I’ll just have a salad with chicken for dinner. When I was visiting my mom recently, we ate pot roast and green beans and wheat bread.”
