So, it’s the almond butters and protein powders, lot of fruits and vegetables. I try to almost do a Paleo diet, but I’m not very good at sticking to it. I eat several little meals a day, instead of three big ones, while I’m working, because you want to not feel too heavy, and drinking lots of water.” Of course she has indulgences once in a while, but she always practices moderation. For her balance is key.
