Sela is passionate about veganism and following a vegan diet. "Plants give your body what it needs to help fight off infection," says Andrea Murray, MD Anderson health education specialist. "A plant-based diet strengthens your immune system to protect you against germs and microorganisms."


Prioritizing Workouts

Sela is focusing on "me-time" and getting back into a healthy workout regimen. "In the madness of life between work and children, too many times I give up training on myself," she says. "This year I decided that there is no such thing as no time! I wear the set I like, grab a mat, take a few breaths and start moving 🙂 So who's coming to practice?"


She Loves Pasta

Sela is a big fan of delicious plant-based pasta dishes. "As a sports dietitian, I advise my athletes and active clients to optimize carbohydrate intake to fuel workouts and restore post exercise," says Leslie Bonci, MPH, RDN, CSSD, LDN. "Anyone who has done road races has probably had a pasta meal the night before. But why? Pasta is an easily digestible carbohydrate that can help ensure that carbohydrate stores (glycogen) is optimized in both the muscles and liver so one can compete and not feel depleted."


She Works Out With Weights

Sela uses dumbbells for muscle strength and toning. "Since most strength training exercises are lower-impact, you can build muscle strength and endurance with less stress on the joints," says trainer Brittany Watts, CPT. "With strength training, there's a higher excess post-exercise oxygen consumption (EPOC). This means you burn more calories after your workout."


She Loves Yoga

Sela incorporates yoga into her health and wellness regimen. "The purpose of yoga is to build strength, awareness and harmony in both the mind and body," says Natalie Nevins, DO, a board-certified osteopathic family physician and certified Kundalini Yoga instructor in Hollywood, California. "As an osteopathic physician, I focus a lot of my efforts on preventive medicine and practices, and in the body's ability to heal itself. Yoga is a great tool for staying healthy because it's based on similar principles."
