Jessica Biel says cutting out these foods improved her digestion
Jessica Biel knows the importance of finding foods that can keep you fuelled from movie sets to toddler playdates.
“I don’t have gluten or wheat or dairy. My digestion is better, I feel better, I have more energy,” she said.
But don’t for a second think this means she’s depriving herself – her day on the plate looks like a menu taken straight from your favourite health-food café.
Her family starts off the day with Paleo pancakes “with some cashew or almond butter on top with some local honey”, chicken-apple sausages and fresh juice.
Lunch is a quick salad (from the family’s own garden) with quinoa or veggie burgers. “And then dinner, if we’re home, it would be cooking up some salmon, some rice, grilling some vegetables, or going out and having some chicken, something a little heartier.”
Snacks include gluten-free pretzels with an almond cheese dip (“It almost tastes like cream cheese, but no dairy”).
Like all health gurus, Biel knows the value of creating a healthy balance. “Of course I have cheat-days and will go out and have, like, cookies and pizza,” she adds.
Just another reason to want to dine with the Timberlakes.
