Jessica Alba On ‘Natural Health’ — Her Diet Secrets
Jessica’s diet largely consists of lean protein, fruits and vegetables.
The mag reports that a typical breakfast is “half a banana with brown-rice cereal and almond milk.” Lunch is usually a salad with nuts or pumpkin seeds. She loves dinners that are “as fresh and organic as possible” — some family-favorites include “turkey meatballs with shredded veggies inside and gluten-free mac and cheese made with olive oil, Parmesan, mozzarella and a little Gouda.”
Jessica is all about balance, saying: “I think diets are boring” and “life’s too short to deprive yourself.”
We totally agree! Just like us, Jessica has a sweet tooth!
“I can’t get through a meeting without candy,” she told the mag, and admitted she got her Honest Company office hooked on popcorn.
Jessica Alba’s Fitness Routine — Workouts Revealed
“I didn’t appreciate working out when I was in my 20s. It was purely for work, and I hated it so much. It was just brutal,” Jessica told the magazine.
Now that she is the mom of two kids, Jessica uses working out to her advantage: “Now I enjoy it, because it’s ‘me’ time and a stress-reliever.”
She likes hot yoga classes and spin. “I prefer Flywheel, because I like doing the competitive thing.” (The room has a board showing the rank of those in the class.)
She also has a home gym, where she does sprints on her treadmill and Pilates. “It’s fun to mix it up. And I really like to work out with friends. They keep me accountable.”
When she starts losing stamina, she remembers: “I like how I feel after a workout.”
But she doesn’t focus on being perfect like she used to: “I’m a little squishy right now. It’s fine. I don’t care.”
Do you hope to get healthy in the new year, HollywoodLifers?
