You probably know Hilaria Thomas Baldwin as the mom of three adorable kid, wife of Alec Baldwin, a.k.a. master SNL Trump impersonator, and generally super-stylish cool-seeming woman. But she’s also (and I inferred this based on her body, but didn’t really know it until recently) a total wellness guru! That’s right: Her new book, The Living Clearly Method: 5 Principles for a Fit Body, Healthy Mind & Joyful Life comes out on December 27.
While you’ll definitely want to pick up the book for Baldwin’s down-to-earth and actionable nutrition and exercise advice, you can also pick up some gems of advice below, where she gives us a glimpse into her daily food and fitness routine.
I start an average day by: Saying: I can do this! Then getting my kids ready.
For breakfast I had: Whole grain cereal with hemp milk.
For lunch I had: A quinoa bowl.
Today I snacked on: Cashews and apple slices.
My go-to healthy drink is: Coconut water.
The one thing I would never eat is: Dairy.
My favorite workout is: Power vinyasa yoga, but it’s my own take on it. It’s my own method. I love all the poses, but headstand, pigeon and peaceful warrior are wonderful! I make time to do it every day, even if it’s not a full class, and just for a few minutes. I also run, typically about four miles at a time. I love it because it’s such a great workout when I don’t have a lot of time. Put my shoes on and start right outside my apartment and end right back at home!
My guilty pleasure food is: Dark chocolate.
The one thing that always gets me motivated to work out is: Thinking about how good I’m going to feel.
The next big health and fitness trend will be: Away with the fake gimmicks and in with the real health!
My favorite healthy restaurant is: Angelica Kitchen, an organic plant-based restaurant in New York City.
My favorite healthy snack is: Whole grain thins and hummus.
The three ingredients you’ll always find in my kitchen are: Quinoa, chocolate, and hemp milk.
My biggest health trip for travelers is to: Move every day, take care of yourself, mind, body, and soul—the point is to come back from vacation feeling good.
The best part of my job is: Helping people feel better.
My winter health tip is: Coconut oil hydration!
My before-bed routine is: Drink coconut water, wash face, brush teeth, and pray that the kids sleep through the night… or at least most of it.
