How has being married to a heart surgeon brought balance to your diet?
Brad opened up a whole new world in diet, because as fit and physical as he is— he’s in excellent shape— he has high cholesterol. And it ran in his families. So he was basically on a Mediterranean, low- fat diet. But he’s a believer in the fast CT scan to see any buildup in the heart, which I do. We’re very proactive with health. So we eat lots of fruits and vegetables. We do eat meat and chicken and fish, but in a balanced way. I’m not gonna give up hamburgers or pizza. I love them. I’m a Texas girl. Every now and then you have to splurge or you go cuckoo. I don’t drink, I don’t smoke, I’ve never touched a drug. And we do eat pretty healthy. I don’t want hormones. I don’t want antibiotics in the meat or chicken. I have a lot of berries in the morning. We might eat oatmeal or cereal with three different berries. He has egg whites, but I have to have a regular egg if I do it. I do a green juice at lunch sometimes. I’m pretty aware of what goes into my body. I’m not a big coffee drinker
except in the morning. I don’t do any diet drinks anymore. I don’t want aspartame.
