“I’m on the run a lot in L.A. Whether I’m hiking with my dog Rocky or driving from meetings to sets, having good snacks on hand is a top priority,” Camp, said in an interview with PEOPLE. “I always carry almonds, fruit and water with me to fight the afternoon crash.”
Camp who is 35, also stays extremely active. She says that hiking, swimming or getting on the elliptical machine four to five times a week "is a must!" As a result, she needs to make sure she is fueling her days with wholesome meals. She gives us insight into what she eats in a single day.
“I love food and great flavors, and am always trying to find healthy ways of eating without sacrificing taste,” Camp says. This is, I believe, a good way to keep you full while you try and stay health-conscious. There are plenty of ways to do this, and Camp's choices are some of the best.
To stay hydrated, Anna drinks an Arnold Palmer, a non-alcoholic beverage of iced tea and lemonade, alongside six to eight glasses of water. This helps fight cravings and keep the sugar cravings at bay.
For breakfast, she will have a bowl of maple granola with sliced almonds, salted sunflower kernels, pumpkin seeds, dried apricots, honey and Greek yogurt. This is a great balance of healthy fats, dairy, fiber and protein. A great way to start the day.
For lunch, it's mixed green salad with pears, grapes, goat cheese, chickpeas and kidney beans with a light drizzle of olive oil, lemon, salt and pepper. The protein here comes from the goat cheese, chickpeas and kidney beans.
For dinner, she keeps it light with roasted salmon and white beans, almonds and radicchio salad. The total calorie consumption for the day comes in at 1,575, so she is well above the recommended 1,200 calories women should eat (1,800 for men).
Atlanta based dietitian Marisa Moore says: “Anna’s vegetable intake is impressive. She starts off the day with a great breakfast packed with protein, fiber and calcium." She continues: "her fruit and vegetable-filled salad makes a satiating lunch with tons of flavor."
“The grapes are a natural source of polyphenols and antioxidants and add a burst of sweetness,” Moore says, “and the legumes add plant-based protein and fiber is great. Camp’s salmon at dinner delivers Omega-3 fatty acids, for a meal that’s a “great way to end the day. With so much protein and fiber, it can keep her feeling full throughout the night, but not heavy or uncomfortable.”
There you have it, Anna Camp's very healthy, very easy-to-follow day-to-day eatings. Have a go at making what she eats yourself, and keep the "new year, new me" thinking going strong. Or at least until the end of the week.
