She Is "Aware" of Her Body

"I'm aware of how my muscles feel, what it feels like when anything changes. Playing sports and being physical helps me maintain that sort of relationship with my own body. So when I'm doing something, or performing in a physical role, I understand that," Jessica explained to ESPN.


She Has a Workout Buddy

Jessica, who trains with celebrity body guru Ben Bruno, has the perfect workout buddy. "Please excuse the photobomb from @justintimberlake while @jessicabiel casually knocks out a super-impressive set of single leg squats," Bruno captioned one video of their workout. "We'll give Justin a pass since he's doing sled rows with four plates on the sled and making it look easy. They've definitely gotta be one of the fittest couples around, and they always work hard in the gym while also making sure to keep it fun. Very cool." "Swolemates," she captioned another couple's workout clip. 


She Does Yoga


Jessica is a yogi. "I started getting into yoga about 10 years ago through a close friend who was an instructor. At first I felt like, 'I can't do all those crazy poses,' and I still can't, but I'm not competing with anyone. I want to demystify yoga and bring it out to more women and men in the community, where it doesn't have to be intimidating," Jessica told Gaiam about her love of the practice. 


She Avoids Gluten, Wheat, and Dairy

While Jessica is "not all-out anything," she tells Los Angeles Times, she does avoid a few types of food. "Honestly, I just feel better when I don't have gluten or wheat or dairy," she said. "My digestion is better, I feel better, I have more energy." What does she eat in a day? "We'll start off with Paleo pancakes with some cashew or almond butter on top with some local honey, and we like chicken-apple sausage, and then maybe a fresh juice from the Juicero machine, which we love, we have some green tea with honey—that's a pretty normal morning for me," she said. She eats salad with greens from her garden with quinoa or a veggie burger from Whole Foods and nuts for lunch. One of her favorite snacks is gluten-free pretzels with dairy-free almond 'cheese' dip. "And then dinner, if we're home, it would be cooking up some salmon, some rice, grilling some vegetables, or going out and having some chicken, something a little heartier for dinner," she added


She Hikes

Jessica loves to hike. "I've learned that I can push forward, which was exciting for me," she told Glamour about hiking Mount Kilimanjaro. "When you get out into the wilderness and strip [away] all of the stuff in your everyday life, you really gain a great respect for your own life, simply as it is. Needing things starts to feel like, Oh, I kind of have everything, don't I? It's pretty great."
