Apart from her workout routine, the actress stays in shape by eating well. As a general rule, she stays away from processed and junk foods, especially those high in sugar. “I don’t do a lot of sugar,” said the actress. “I eat what’s natural. I don’t drink and I don’t smoke.” That’s why she prefers making her own meals as this ensures that all the ingredients are fresh and healthy. Her diet plan primarily consists of lean meat, whole grains, and plenty of fruits and vegetables. She also munches on healthy snacks like almonds and blueberry. She does have some cravings, which she allows herself to have every now and then.
