Maria Menounos turns 40 this year but she remains youthful and slender. This is because the celebrity focuses on a clean diet plan and she does so on a regular basis. For one, she tries her best to concentrate her diet on plant-based foods. “I’m an aspiring vegetarian. I try to eat the least amount of meat as I can, ” she said. The celebrity also got candid about her typical food options. “Most mornings I start with a smoothie. My favorite has Greek yogurt, almonds, apple, banana, cinnamon, and a little bit of skim milk,” she said.
For lunch, Maria prefers having “green salad, topped with chicken or tuna.” Her snacks are healthy, too, and they usually consist of “almonds, a banana, or Greek yogurt.” For dinner, the actress said it changes all the time. Sometimes, she has “quinoa salad or chicken or fish with vegetables.” She also tries to balance her eating habits with some treats every now and then. She explained: “I really do try to aim for a 75-25 rule for eating. If I ate clean all day and I’m watching a movie later that night, I’ll have a few Kit Kat Bites or some popcorn, and I’m not going to feel bad about it.”
