She Eats A Lot Of Plant-Based Options

Bilson revealed some of her diet secrets in an interview with Parade. She says that while she doesn't live a fully plant-based life, she has started enjoying more plant-based foods and options. "We really try to be creative and healthy in my household. We're big fans of incorporating plant-based things into our life, and Planet Oat Milk has made that so easy. We love doing breakfast experiments with Planet Oat."


She Loves Oats


Bilson doesn't just love oat milk, she loves oats of all kinds. "My daughter loves oats in general, so we are big on overnight oats, oatmeal pancakes and oat milk," she told Parade. "Think of me as an oat household. She really loves to experiment, which I'm lucky. Not all kids are okay with that."


She Limits Her Dairy

Bilson tells Parade that she has started to limit how much dairy is in her household and diet. "We definitely try to focus on less dairy in our house. It really helped my daughter's skin clear up. She was having some eczema, and when we stopped dairy, it went away. So, that was a huge eye-opener for us just seeing how much you diet can basically control things that are happening with your body."


She Loves Salads


Bilson loves to make salads. She revealed one of her favorite recipes to Parade. "I have this corn salad that my sister-in-law discovered. It is so good. It's like roasted corn or grilled corn and lime and jalapeño and tomato and avocado and cilantro. That's my go-to summer salad."


She Puts Things Into Perspective

Bilson talked about some of her mental health and wellbeing routines in an interview with Yahoo. She says that one way she reduces stress is by putting things into perspective. ​​"I can get overwhelmed, but I try to remind myself that there are so many worse things in the world right now," she says. "These are tiny little things that in the big picture do not matter."
