She has her go-to breakfasts that start the day off right. "I usually have egg whites and beans," she said. "For lunch and dinner, Longoria says she usually plans a gourmet meal. "I've been really bringing it during COVID. I've been making everything from fish tacos to shepherd's pie to curry. No day is the same," she said about meals during the pandemic. "If you have heart disease or high cholesterol, be cautious about the number of egg yolks you consume, and take into account all the other forms of saturated fat (red meat, beef, pork, veal and lamb, poultry skin, whole-milk dairy or full-fat cheese) in your diet," preventive cardiology dietitian Julia Zumpano, RD, LD tells the Cleveland Clinic. "Setting a limit of four egg yolks per week is recommended."

One of the greatest ways for me is to enjoy food."
