It all starts in the a.m. with a matcha made from Ripple pea milk. "I want more protein because I like muscle," she explained. "There's eight grams of protein in the Ripple milk." Then, once on set, she’ll order egg whites, spinach and tomato with extra feta from catering services.
Next comes her mid-morning snack: a salt bagel with cream cheese, washed down with a pea or hemp milk protein shake (with added adaptogens.) "I find I get my best results when I force myself to down a protein shake within an hour after I workout," she said.
Lunch is always a “garbage disposal salad. "It is just a bed of lettuce with everything on it," she continued. "I’ll do avocados, raisins, apples, tomatoes, egg, blue cheese, parm, nuts, carrots, cucumbers, and potatoes. I’ll just throw it on there."
For dinner, she’ll whip up something simple and nourishing for the fam, like chickpea pasta with cherry tomatoes and olive oil. “I get too much joy out of cooking,” she said. “I wouldn’t actually feel comfortable coming home and having a meal served to me.”
Of course, she leaves room for indulgences. “I’m not super restrictive. If they make au gratin potatoes, I’m going to have some, but I am mindful of the portion I take,” she said. I find that through conscious eating, I’m able to have all the rewards and also maintain a healthy, steady diet.”
An eating regime that allows carbs AND 24/7 grazing? Sounds fine by us.
