This Is What Jennifer Lopez Eats in a Day
What does Jennifer Lopez feed that amazing body of hers? Apparently, this.
The “Booty” singer recently broke down her diet for People. Emphasizing the importance of being healthy, Lopez said staying fit doesn’t necessarily mean sacrificing what you love to eat and that it’s perfectly fine to indulge once in a while. Though the mom-of-two had kale and lean proteins in her average day meal plan, she also listed a chocolate chip cookie as dessert.
“I don’t deprive myself,” the 45-year-old told the magazine. “But I’ve learned the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle … I always have healthy snacks like fruit and vegetables with me.”
Her meal for that day was as follows:
BodyLab TastyShake Berry Berry Good smoothie
1 scoop of BodyLab TastyShake
3/4 cup strawberries
1/4 cup blueberries
1/4 cup raspberries
1/4 cup Greek yogurt
1/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tbsp. honey
1/4 tsp. fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup ice cubes

A medium-size apple
1 boneless, skinless grilled chicken breast with:

Lopez also added that she tries to stay hydrated throughout the day by drinking plenty of water.
