LA Rams Cheerleader Brittany Spencer Shares Swimsuit Photo From Lake Tahoe

Here’s what an NBA dancer loves to eat. 

Professional NBA cheerleader Brittany Spencer spent the last of the summer months traveling and having a good time—and she's got the pictures to prove it. Spencer shared pictures taken from a little jaunt up to Lake Tahoe, including pictures of her climbing into a yacht while wearing a black one-piece swimsuit with matching hat. "LA girlie takes Tahoe 😎," she captioned the post. Spencer isn't just a dancer, she also works in real estate—here's how she maintains the energy to have it all.


Yoga Devotee

Spencer has been practicing yoga for years. "My yoga teacher this morning asked the class what brings us joy when starting our day," she captioned an Instagram video. "For me it's practicing yoga & making myself a blueberry lavender latte (thx to @milkhoneystyle recipe😋) If you do something you love when you wake up, the brighter the rest of your day will be☀️ What brings you happiness in the morning?"


All the Avocados

One look at Spencer's food Instagram shows that avocados feature very heavily in rotation (the account is even called Avocado Brit). "If you can swap out your high-fat processed foods like sausages with avocado, you will be doing yourself a favor," says Zhaoping Li, MD. "Avocados are high in fat, but it's good fat. This counters the public opinion that all fats are bad… Natural food, particularly in place of processed food, is what we want to be eating to prevent disease, to keep ourselves in good health, and that includes keeping our skin healthy."


Lots of Coffee

Spencer loves iced lattes as her energy booster of choice. "Both regular and decaf coffee seem to have a protective effect on your liver," say the experts at Johns Hopkins Medicine. "Research shows that coffee drinkers are more likely to have liver enzyme levels within a healthy range than people who don't drink coffee."


Sushi Lover

Sushi is one of Spencer's favorite foods, and it's healthy too—seafood is a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids. "EPA and DHA are called essential fatty acids because your body cannot make them," says Anthony DiMarino, RD. "Seafood is one of the best sources of these fats, which improve heart and blood vessel health. Omega-3s have been linked to lower risks of high blood pressure, blood clots and sudden cardiac death."


Breakfast Foods

Spencer fuels her training with high-protein breakfast foods such as eggs. "We are probably more embracing of eggs within a heart-healthy dietary pattern than we were 20 years ago, but it's still a source of dietary cholesterol," says Jo Ann Carson, professor of clinical nutrition at UT Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas. "Eating an egg a day as a part of a healthy diet for healthy individuals is a reasonable thing to do."
