In one of Gracie's blogs, she revealed her diet and workout secrets. "I am breakfast obsessed!" she confessed. "The first meal of the day kick starts your metabolism and helps to provide the energy and focus needed to work efficiently throughout the day. One of my favorites is this delicious and vitamin-packed berry smoothie bowl and a vegan matcha latte. 


She Fuels Up During the Day

Gracie fuels her body with healthy food. "Eating a nutritious lunch helps reduce stress and provides the fuel your body needs to take on the afternoon work grind. I like to keep my energy up with a sweet potato & quinoa salad with turmeric-coated cauliflower on the side," she writes. For a snack she slices up some tomatoes and pairs them with light mozzarella, and "just a splash" of balsamic vinegar and olive oil. "Don't underestimate the power of snacks," she says.

Gracie finishes off the day by eating a replenishing meal. "Dinner is an important part of the day, it makes up for the nutrients that may have been missed during the day. That's why I eat something that is packed with protein, like a salad with shrimp and lentils," she writes. And no, she doesn't skip dessert. " Since I do have a sweet tooth, I love a dessert that is delicious and satisfies my craving but is also somewhat healthy. I love making this simple one-ingredient banana ice cream. Plus, no ice cream maker needed for this rich and silky delight!" 


She Does Yoga


Gracie loves to do yoga. "Yoga is a great way to put your body through active recovery and stretching which helps with injury prevention while also being active and getting a good workout in. It's no surprise that after pushing myself to the limit during CorePower that I'm hungry!" she says.


She Also Does HIIT Workouts

"HIIT workouts are one of my favorites," Gracie maintains. "They burn more calories, target multiple muscle groups at a time, and can also lower blood sugar and blood pressure. Just remember: HIIT & don't quit!"


She Runs

Gracie is also a runner. She has even completed two marathons. According to the Mayo Clinic, running is great for cardiovascular health, muscle building, and weight loss. "For every mile run, the average person will burn approximately 100 calories," they say. 


She Stretches

After breakfast in the morning, Gracia does Kayla Itsines' morning stretch video. "Stretching is essential for recovery and is a great way to get your body moving in the morning!" she says. "Don't consider stretching a warmup. You may hurt yourself if you stretch cold muscles. Before stretching, warm up with light walking, jogging or biking at low intensity for 5 to 10 minutes. Even better, stretch after your workout when your muscles are warm," says the Mayo Clinic. "Consider skipping stretching before an intense activity, such as sprinting or track and field activities. Some research suggests that pre-event stretching may actually decrease performance. Research has also shown that stretching immediately before an event weakens hamstring strength."
