You all know how much I love food. I strongly believe that eating good food is part of living a fulfilled life. What you might not know is that I'm actually a fairly healthy eater even though I don't like fruits or vegetables (lecture me all you want but I will never like a melon). I try to take care of my body because I rely on it so much. Here is the diet that has helped me through many rehearsals and performances as well as my everyday life.
~ No soda, tea leaf, coffee, or alcohol. Limit fruit juices.
~ Water, water, water.
~ No fake sugar.
~ No frozen meals or canned soups (too much salt)
~ Lots of chamomile and mint herbal teas.
~ Blueberries and Greek yogurt almost every morning.
~ My "go to dinner" is brown rice with an egg and lots of broccoli.
~ Bananas are my new favorite food.
(I don't like the taste but they make me feel great.)
~ Almonds and dark chocolate bits make a great snack and curb hunger.
~ Celery sticks and cucumbers with hummus are the perfect pre-show snack.
Now, you must know that my favorite food is french fries and that I solve a chocolate craving by trying not to eat an entire cake in one sitting. I love my steak medium rare and I think Brie cheese is the best thing ever. But for the most part I try to eat healthy because I know I owe it to my body.
