Cavallari enjoys a variety of workouts. "I lift weights, but I do circuit training to keep my heart rate up," she says. "I also started doing hot yoga every once in a while. I don't do it as often as I would like, but I love it when I'm able to make it happen."


Organic Food

Cavallari cooks at home for her family as much as she can. "The way I eat is a lifestyle," she says. "Organic as often as possible, tons of veggies, meat, nuts and seeds, complex carbs like buckwheat soba noodles, berries, tons of fat — I even eat butter… My kids love pasta. We use brown rice noodles or lentil noodles."


Building Muscle

Cavallari works out with a trainer to build muscle. "I'm really petite. I have no hips. I'm just small. And so if I don't work out for like a week or two, I feel like all my muscle goes away," she says. "So it is about consistency for me… [My trainer] pushes me really hard. He has me actually lifting really heavy weight, the heaviest weight I've ever lifted in my entire life. I feel the best I ever have. I feel like I'm the strongest I've ever been."


Physical and Mental Wellness


Cavallari doesn't believe in diets—instead, she focuses on eating whole foods and living a healthy lifestyle. "I never look at fat or calories or anything on an ingredient label," she says. "I just read the actual ingredients, and I just want to make sure that l'm eating real food as close to its natural state as possible. I drink a ton of water. I work out five days a week and I lift weights, but I go quickly. It's circuit training so that my heart rate is up. I'm a big believer in an infrared sauna, in a bath, in a mask, in a gratitude journal."


Balance and Grace

Cavallari says she has finally achieved a sense of balance when it comes to her health and lifestyle. "It's important to give ourselves grace and not beat ourselves up," she says. "For so many years in my early 20s, I was all or nothing. I have the best relationship I've ever had with food and health because I've let go of a lot of that control. It's about consistency — just keep showing up."
