  • 1 cup unsweetened cashew milk

Clean and Healthy Diet


Overall, Jen follows a clean and healthy diet. She dishes about her go-to breakfast in a video for Harper's Bazaar. "I love breakfast. It's my favorite meal of the day," she said, adding that her go-to is eggs. "I always like to switch up my eggs," she said. She loves scrambled eggs but might "go crazy," creating scrambles with onion, tomato, spinach, mushroom, organic brown eggs (two whites and one full egg) with cheese, and cooked with olive oil. Sometimes she will even eat a side of mashed avocado with them for healthy fats and added protein. "I'm all about moderation," Jen told Harper's Bazaar about her approach to diet. "I eat really healthy. I don't drink alcohol. I love chocolate. I love cheese. I have two cheat meals a week. If I'm craving something, I am going to eat it." Chicken parm and penne alla vodka are her go-to cheat meals. 



"Results don't happen overnight," Jen told Women's Health. "But they do happen with hard work, dedication and keeping consistent. Stay consistent with your workouts, and never stop trying.

5 Workouts a Week


Jen clocks up five workouts a week. She pairs Stairmaster sessions with strengthening exercises. "I like to separate my training into leg day, upper body, core, and cardio," she says. "I always work out for an hour."

Jen also does yoga. According to the American Osteopathic Association, there are more than 100 different types, or schools, of yoga. Most practices include breathing exercises, meditation, and assuming postures (sometimes called asana or poses) that stretch and flex various muscle groups."The relaxation techniques incorporated in yoga can lessen chronic pain, such as lower back pain, arthritis, headaches, and carpal tunnel syndrome," Natalie Nevins, DO, a board-certified osteopathic family physician and certified Kundalini Yoga instructor in Hollywood, California, explained to them. "Yoga can also lower blood pressure and reduce insomnia."

Other physical benefits of yoga include:
