She Eats Natural Foods
"I like simple, natural, easy food. I don't really like food with a lot of chemicals or additives," Elizabeth told The Cut. "When I'm at home in the country, I always try and eat food that's grown locally. That goes for meats and vegetables."
"I don't do any regulated exercise, but I'm very active," she told the Cut. "On the weekends I go for long hikes with my dogs. I try and stretch every day. I do the occasional yoga or Pilates class, but mostly it's just self-exercise at home. I might do some stomach exercises or some bottom or arm exercises, but because I trained for a dancer when I was young, I sort of know all the exercises. I find it very hard for my schedule to regularly go anywhere else. It works very well for me."
She's Into Fruits and Veggies
"I like things like an omelet, or I like avocado on toast or some tomatoes," she tells Us Weekly. "I always have something for breakfast." By day, she'll eat "lots and lots and lots" of veggies. she once posted on Instagram photos of herself with homemade marmalade.
She Eats Earlier in the Day
Says Eat This, Not That!: "I try not to eat too much for dinner," Hurley revealed to The View not long ago. She backed that up by also telling E! News, "I think that's one of the best diet tips you can have: Eat your food earlier on in the day, so you've got more time to digest it and your body can rest in the sleep period. I used to snack late at night because I was a little bit hungry before I went to bed … [but] I stopped doing that now."
What Wellness Means to Her
"It means being as healthy as you can in your lifestyle and as healthy as you can emotionally. You need to balance both. Of course it's important to eat well and exercise. It's also really important to look after yourself emotionally. People often ask me how you can look good as you age, and for me it's a couple of things. You need to look after your skin, that's important," she told the Cut.
