To maintain a healthy figure, the Aussie star works out regularly and sticks to a clean diet. By clean, this means she follows mostly a vegetarian diet, which is how she was raised. “I was raised primarily as a vegetarian, with a lot of respect given to preparing and eating food,” the actress shared. Eating healthily is part of her lifestyle, which is why it’s not hard for her to avoid processed foods. As a matter of fact, she’s not into junk foods. She grew up loving nutritious and well-rounded foods. Plus practicing a vegetarian diet makes her feel great from the inside out, which is a pretty strong motivation for anyone to focus on clean eating.
