Coffee First Thing
Griffin starts the day with a double shot of coffee with a splash of milk. "Americans get more of their antioxidants from coffee than any other dietary source. Nothing else comes close," Joe Vinson, PhD, a chemistry professor at the University of Scranton, tells Fox.
Avocado and Olive Oil
Griffin enjoys half an avocado with olive oil and salt for a healthy snack. "The health benefits of olive oil have been attributed to its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties," says Howard E. LeWine, MD. "In fact, observational studies have shown a link between lower risks of cardiovascular disease, some cancers, and even dementia in people who consume higher amounts of olive oil than those who use little or none."
Griffin makes homemade smoothies with berries, grapes, orange juice, and a probiotic shot. When making smoothies, says the Mayo Clinic:
- "Avoid added sugars. Stay away from sugars in your smoothie, including fruit juice.
- Use water or milk as your base. Skim milk, unsweetened almond milk, unsweetened soy milk or water are all good options for the liquid base of your smoothie.
- Add a protein source. Include milk, plain yogurt or plain kefir to your smoothie to help increase satiety or feeling full."
Griffin enjoys parmesan eggs cooked by her husband. "According to a report published in Nutrients, egg phospholipids have been shown to inhibit cholesterol absorption, increase levels of the "good" HDL cholesterol, and help lower certain inflammatory biomarkers," says Eat This, Not That!
Griffin allows herself indulgences now and then. "I love comfort food after a show," she says. "Since I burned all those calories on stage, I'm going to reward myself. Like every woman, I have a sweet tooth as big as my smile. Some nights it's the most decadent chocolate I can find. Other nights, I'm happy with a low-fat Fudgsicle."
