She Eats A Balanced Diet

"I like to keep it really balanced to give my body energy and also be healthy," she said to Elle. "I wouldn't say I am the type of girl who craves Doritos but I definitely love a good cupcake sometimes. You know what I mean? Or a croissant in the morning. I think it is like really important to give yourself a break."
