Main­tain­ing daily phys­i­cal—and spir­i­tual—en­ergy

Amazing Wellness - - WHAT I TAKE -

Wak­ing up to a pro­tein-rich break­fast— of­ten in­clud­ing scram­bled eggs— su­per­charges the ef­fer­ves­cent ac­tress’s day ahead. “It’s re­ally essen­tial to put some pro­tein in your body in the morn­ing, be­cause it burns so much slower than carbs,” she says. De­Witt keeps her body, mind, and spirit aligned with yoga, walk­ing, and tai chi chih. Pro­tein and carbs—sep­a­rately, not to­gether—help her avoid af­ter­noon fa­tigue. “For me, par­tic­u­larly when I’m work­ing, and be­cause I don’t have to make three meals a day for a fam­ily, I tend to eat five or six lit­tle meals. Lunch for me of­ten is a slice of turkey wrapped around string cheese. I eat two of those and I’m done. Three hours later, I’ll want a half of an ap­ple with al­mond but­ter on it. And three hours later I’ll make up some chicken and toss up a salad. And I eat plenty of vegeta­bles—I love broc­coli!”
