​Emily refuses to diet. "I like to keep it really balanced to give my body energy and also be healthy," she told Harper's Bazaar. In the morning she starts with black coffee and a pastry and follows it up with a light lunch. "Lunch is usually a salad or a sandwich, If I'm on set, I'll have catering, but I'm well behaved with that stuff. It's easy to go crazy—they know how to feed you." Her favorite meal of the day? "Dinner is my time to be social and catch up with people," she said. "I love this Italian restaurant downtown called Bestia. It's kind of fun, and they have good cocktails and wine."

She Cooks Her Own Food
