Mindy Kaling keeps herself strong and healthy by watching what she eats. She doesn’t necessarily diet to the point of deprivation, but she focuses on healthy eating. “I like every food: sushi, Ethiopian, French, spicy, sweets. Plus, I was raised to clean my plate, and I’ve had to come to terms with the fact that I don’t have to eat everything on there. So on a typical day, I keep it pretty healthy,” said the actress-writer.
“In the morning, I try to have eggs because they’re easy to cook even if you’re as bad at cooking as I am. I’ll poach an egg or two, have a third of an avocado and a piece of Ezekiel toast with butter. That fills me up for a really long time. I’ll have a big salad for lunch with chicken or fish on top. For dinner, if I’m home, I’ll cook something healthy like a piece of salmon with some spinach.”
