From fighting alongside Thor as Lady Sif to Blindspot, Jaimie Alexander has always rocked an amazing physique.
And, lucky for us, she’s open to sharing all about her nutrition.
We’ve already covered a handful about Alexander’s nutrition and of course her workout in our original article: Jaimie Alexander Workout Routine and Diet Plan, but for this one we’ll be expanding on her diet specifically with more research and a full breakdown for her daily meal plan.
We’re going to actually be starting with new information from an interview with Alexander and Eat This, Not That!
Here’s what she has to say about he first meal:
What’s your morning meal?
I hate to admit it but I used to skip breakfast. I’d just slam down a coffee and go. Now I respect my body and give it the healthy fuel it needs first thing. I start with a full glass of warm lemon water to get my metabolism going. Then I eat an apple to “break the fast.” If I’m in a rush, I make a protein shake using Sun Warrior Vanilla Protein and Califia almond milk, with extra super greens powder. But I also find eggs or a slice of gluten-free bread with peanut butter and a sprinkle of sea salt pretty tasty. And I still love a good cup of coffee in the morning.
Alexander continues in the interview discussing cheat meals and even how she tried to be a vegan:
How do you keep your energy up at work?
I pretty much eat all day. I tried being vegan but found myself reaching for potato chips and fries. Now I’m primarily vegetarian with a side of fish. When I’m working, I’ll have gluten-free wraps with lots of veggies and veganaisse or hummus.
Do you ever have cheat days?
Oh yeah, for sure! My diet is pretty healthy, but if there’s pizza, I will eat that pizza. And I will knock back a beer or some bourbon. I’m a foodie and don’t believe in depriving myself. The key is to stay active.
Soooo, she doesn’t join the list of intermittent fasting celebrities, and she is not a vegan (but rather vegetarian-ish), but we WILL add her to the list of celebrities that indulge among our Top Diets Used By Celebrities.
Alexander even gives us information about what she eats when she’s eating out.
AND a full grocery list and recipe to add to it!
Here’s how she finishes up:
What do you order when you’re dining out?
I always start with a house salad and mix my own dressing at the table with some olive oil, lemon juice, and sea salt. And I love broccoli with salmon or tuna (raw, baked, or grilled).
What’s always on your grocery list?
Califia unsweetened almond milk, and organic coffee, apples, lemons, and grapes. I love coconut oil too. It’s great for cooking and skin care. You can take makeup off with it and use it as a moisturizer. I like to add lavender oil to it for a “body lotion.”
I’ll be breaking down all of this in the diet plan below, so don’t worry about piecing it all together yourself.
