You Star Shay Mitchell Shares Swimsuit Photo From Italy

The wellness mantra she lives by.

You star Shay Mitchell took a trip to Italy in September and shared the highlights on her social media. Mitchell, who plays Peach Salinger on the show, posted pictures from the vacation, including snaps of her posing in a brown bikini, soaking up the sun while enjoying the gorgeous scenery. "You look amazing!" commented makeup artist Ash K Holm. Mitchell's incredible physique is the result of hard work and discipline—here's how she does it. 


TikTok Quesadilla


Mitchell is a creature of habit when it comes to breakfast. "My food philosophy is everything in moderation," she says. "Truly, I'm not one who believes in diets. I make the same breakfast every day. I'm the biggest fan of this egg quesadilla I saw on TikTok. I never get sick of it. I know you didn't ask me how to make it, but I'm going to tell you! You scramble the eggs, you put them in a pan, and then you put the tortilla on top of it. You flip it and it's perfectly even, and then you can get crazy with what else you put in it. I'll usually add spinach, cheese, and mushrooms on top. With a smoothie after a workout, it's super filling."


Plant-Based Diet


Mitchell enjoys plant-based bread replacements. "For lunch, I'll get these cauliflower or broccoli crusts that are frozen," she says. "I'll make my own pizza with it. I'll dump some spinach and arugula on it, and then a little bit of Ranch. I'll usually have vegetables cut up with hummus. I love hummus with anything; I mean everything with hummus just tastes better, you know? I also have, like, meals for snacks. I love Beyond Meat. I'll have a Beyond meat lettuce wrap with sweet potato fries for a snack."


Ice Cream For Dessert


Mitchell's favorite dessert is ice cream. "Dinner is, like, a fish, maybe a sweet potato or a pasta, and then l always have a salad there too," she says. "I've found healthy recipes that I can do that are super simple because I'm not a chef by any means, but I do love food… I love ice cream. There's this female-founded company called Wanderlust Creamery, and they have the best ice cream. I'm half-Filipino, and I love other Asian foods. They have this one called Ube Crunch, another called Mango Sticky Rice, and another flavored like Matcha Tea."


Four Weeks of Focus

Mitchell teamed up with Openfit and trainer Kelsey Heenan to create Four Weeks of Focus. "It's 30 minutes a day, five days a week—for four weeks only," she says. "It's a very realistic commitment and that in and of itself makes it exciting and easier to stick to."


Her Wellness Mantra

Mitchell believes in balance and realism when it comes to health and fitness. "If it doesn't feel good don't do it," she says. "It's okay to take a day off, it's okay to cheat. We're all people and while it's essential that we challenge ourselves, some days you just have to give yourself a break. But on the days you don't need a break, hit it hard. Once you rip off the band-aid you will start reaping the benefits of your hard work and will be more motivated as a result."
