"My favorite thing is to have a green juice," she told Who What Wear. "I go every weekend to the farmers market and I get fresh kale, spinach, celery, and lettuces and I blend it all together. That's my favorite thing before I work out."

"Let's see, I love PlateFit and the feeling of being on a Power Plate," she told WhoWhatWear. "I love how quickly I can work out and get such a great exercise, I love Pilates because it centers me and it also strengthens my body, but I also love being outside, so swimming, hiking, anything like that is great as well."


She's a Cookbook Author

Gellar wrote a cookbook, Stirring Up Fun with Food, with healthy spins on the indulgences she loves, like asparagus fries and cheese muffins. "I've always been a crafty person," she says, "but with food, my expertise has always been in the eating department rather than the cooking department. Still, when I started to experiment, I realized there were all these new ways to merge the things that I loved," she told Tasting Table.

I love dessert, I'm not afraid to love dessert," she told Well+Good. "I think we all should have beautiful, sweet things. I've never believed in cutting all that out." "Obviously I'm known for being athletic, but I've always indulged in dessert," she says. "I would rather have one good, delicious bite of whatever that sweet thing is than a junk-filled trendy version of the opposite. It's all part of the overall holistic approach to how I take care of my body."

Gellar has supported her Cruel Intentions co-star and friend Selma Blair through Blair's multiple sclerosis diagnosis. "This is my dear friend @selmablair," Gellar wrote on Instagram. "Last night she stood on the world stage for the first time, since being diagnosed with MS. And later this week, she is taking an even bigger step, and speaking publicly on @goodmorningamerica (with, my girl crush @robinrobertsgma ) To say I'm proud, would be a gross understatement. When I have a cold, I want to hide from the world under my covers. But not Selma. She is facing this diagnosis, the way she faces everything, with dignity, grace and head on. I know the support and encouragement that she has received on this platform has truly been a source of strength for her. This is not an easy journey, but Selma will not let this define her."
