Troian Bellisario Talks to the New Potato

Excerpts from the article:
Troian Bellisario, New Potato
New Potato: From start to finish, what would be your ideal food day?

Troian Bellisario: An ideal food day would be a day in which I listened to my body: when I didn’t go too long without eating, overstuffed myself, freaked-out on a friend as a result of low blood sugar, and everything I ate left me feeling energized and clean. Doesn’t that sounds amazing? But it’s tough, making sure you eat well, regularly and consciously in today’s crazy world. I know I’m not the only one with a crazy schedule!

So, I guess to achieve this, I try to eat simple healthy whole foods; they don’t take a lot of prep and can be taken on the go. I love a thick greek yogurt in the morning with fruit and a nut butter. Sometimes on a Sunday, I will make a big batch of steel cut oats and then put it in the refrigerator. Then, each morning, you take a little bit with some almond milk and raisins or dates and heat it back up; it’s so easy to take it in a jar to work (with any toppings you like) and it’s warm and gives you energy for a long time. I’ll do the same thing on a Sunday with a big salad of kale with my favorites – avocado and sweet potato. I’ll make it on a Sunday with some lemon juice and leave it in the fridge and then make a dressing that I can add later. Usually for protein I’ll add boiled eggs or nuts and seeds. For dinner, I love sushi or a perfect piece of fish.

I know for some people this might sound like a boring day, or a day they have read about in some magazine in the nail salon like eight times, but when my life gets hectic usually food is the first thing I like to organize so that it doesn’t stress me out. If I have an audition and three meetings – and I have to make a flight after working all night – I can’t waste any mental energy by allowing myself to get to the point of hunger and then asking myself what I want to eat. Sometimes it is nice to just have all of that food prepared. I know it will sustain me and leave me feeling full and I can focus on other things.

But that is ideally, as in the perfection of health. I would also ideally love to have french toast and eggs every morning and then ice cream later.

New Potato: How do you practice beauty from the inside out?

Troian Bellisario: Listen to your body. I am horrible at this, but I’m trying to get better. I need to learn that when I have not gotten enough sleep, maybe I should not wake up and go on a run. Maybe it would be better for my body to get that extra hour of sleep. Maybe I don’t need that third cup of coffee, because I will not feel any more awake, I’ll just get shaky and hyper. Again, I am horrible at this, but I feel like the key to beauty and health is listening to your body and giving it what it needs, not always what you think it wants.

Diane Kruger Featured on New Potato

Diane Kruger, New PotatoDiane Kruger is featured on the April issue of 2016 New Potato where she is promoting her new film Sky.

Here is the complete interview:

Yes…it happened…actress Diane Kruger – aka everyone’s muse – is on The New Potato. We almost didn’t believe it until we pressed publish. It’s no secret sartorially speaking Kruger can do no wrong when it comes to the red carpet, and the former-model-turned-actress’ newest movie – Sky – hit theaters this weekend. The German-born actress – who’s been the face of beauty campaigns for timeless brands like Chanel and Calvin Klein – is top of our list when it comes to all things concerning being effortlessly chic, perfectly messy, glowing…Let’s face it, any and all of the above. So when we were given the opportunity to plug her on all things food, fashion and beauty, you better believe we were taking very detailed notes. Turns out Kruger thinks strong is the new skinny and always has rosé in her fridge…

Shay Mitchell
On Breakfast Burritos And Celebrating Your Uniqueness

After what feels like forever, Pretty Little Liars has finally returned to give us the second half of Season 6. To celebrate the revival of our guilty (or not so guilty) pleasure, we caught up with the show’s star Shay Mitchell, who has been awfully busy lately. When she’s not keeping us on the edge of our seats onscreen as Emily Fields, Shay is signing copies of her book, Bliss: A Novel, which she co-authored with her best friend. You can also find her on YouTube, where her wildly popular personal channel shows she’s a lot more girly than her PLL character lets on. Our favorite episodes? The ‘Shay’s Kitchen’ segments of course, where she shows off her favorite recipes, and proves this girl actually does do it all.
