Melissa is noted to be working out under the guidance of her personal fitness trainer. Other than working out, she stays fit by observing a balanced and healthy diet. Here’s what she shared in one of her interviews about her diet:
“I would like to be able to tell you that every morning I start my day with an organic egg white omelet with fresh spinach picked from my garden, a side of turkey bacon and a fresh fruit smoothie, but most mornings I eat cottage cheese from the container while looking for my son’s shoes. Then I eat an apple on the way to his preschool, and the closest thing I have had to a fresh fruit smoothie since I had my son is a watermelon jolly rancher! For special occasions, I add cinnamon in my cottage cheese and dip the apple.”
Now that’s sounds healthy and mouth-watering!
