In an interview, the television actress got candid about her healthy habits. As part of her healthy lifestyle, she practices a balanced diet plan. “I like to do all my shopping at the farmers market and try to eat organic fruits and vegetables, fish. That’s during the week. And during the weekend, I like to splurge,” said the actress. “I definitely eat more sweets, go to brunch with friends and don’t worry what I’m eating. I love to go out to dinner with friends and have a bottle of wine, so I let myself go.”
She also stays healthy by drinking lots of water. She said: “I don’t have a problem with water. I try for 3 liters a day, room temperature. I don’t drink soda or juices. Every once in a while I’ll have a fresh-squeezed juice. And red wine.”
