She Snowboards

Making funny videos on Instagram is not the only thing Dobrev loves to do in the snow. She is also an avid snowboarder, and has posted photos of her on the slopes on Instagram. Dobrev is also dating professional snowboarder Shaun White, so the two of them might like to board together. 


She Works Out With Her Friends

Dobrev says to Harper's Bazaar that she loves to work out and go to classes with her friends. "Before dinner we often meet up at a Les Mills (fitness) class together – my favorite is Grit – or a dance class, or go to the gym. We'll detox and then retox."


She Makes Healthy Smoothies


Dobrev broke down her favorite meals to Harper's Bazaar, where she revealed that she has a go-to smoothie recipe. "I make the same shake for breakfast every single morning: Sunwarrior protein powder, the chocolate flavor, half a banana, coconut peanut butter that I have shipped in from Hawaii, almond milk, spinach, kale, and cinnamon."


She Thinks About Portions

Dobrev revealed to Shape that she is now a lot more conscious about her portion sizes, and that it has helped her stay alert and active. "I used to eat three full meals and then I would not be able to move after each meal. I would be so full and tired. Now, I eat all the time but portion control is what's important for me-I'm eating more in total but not more at a time."


She Strength Trains

Dobrev also told Shape that she has started to do strength training exercises, and she's seeing results. "I actually did not do a lot of [strength training] in the past-I only did yoga and ran in terms of training. Strength training with weights and such a regimented schedule has been new to my life, and now that I understand the way it all works, the science behind it, it's changed everything for me."
