Shape.com has done a Q & A session with Lauren Bowles, the one and only Holly Cleary on True Blood. During the Q&A they chat about her interests such as how much she loves yoga and organic food, and a little bit more about her healthy living habits.
SHAPE: We know you’re a big fan of yoga. Our readers would love to know what else you do to stay in such great shape!
Lauren Bowles (LB): I love taking fitness classes! I go to an Equinox here in L.A., and I’m a total class whore: Whether it’s body-conditioning classes, ViPR, Pilates, treadmill classes, whatever, I’ll take it.
SHAPE: How about your diet? Do you follow a special eating plan?
LB: Five years ago, I tried the Alejandro Junger cleanse, and it changed my life. I also read The China Study, which has a had a huge impact on me. I’m not completely vegan—my diet’s probably about 80 percent plant based, but I do eat some meat. I try to know where eveything comes from, though. And all bets are off if my husband and I go to a really great restaurant. There’s also this great farm-to-table delivery system in L.A. that I love called Paleta. It’s completely organic, and you can get anything delivered.
SHAPE: What about your guilty pleasures? Do you have any indulgences that you won’t give up?
LB: I love to bake! I have a huge sweet tooth, and I love to make things like zucchini muffins, you know, anything decadent like that. And I stand by the claim that chocolate can be good for you! I love having a good piece of dark chocolate, one that’s 70 percent or more cacao.
