Actress Kristen Bell recently shared how she looks so stunning with Self Magazine. While a rigorous workout is involved, it’s also her vegetarian diet and love of healthful foods that keeps her looking great.

Bell reveals that she has been a vegetarian since she was 11. When it comes to eating her ethics, she told Self, “I love animals, and I stand by my values.”

What does a typical day of eating look like for the star? She says, “So in the morning, I have an apple and, if we have leftover pizza, I scrape the toppings into egg whites. Pizza eggs are better than you can imagine! For lunch, I’ll have a big salad and a veggie burger.”

She continues, “I’m a fan of multicourse dinners. Last night, I made brussels sprouts baked with balsamic vinegar, grapes and walnuts; butternut squash ravioli; and a “garbage disposal” salad, which is everything in the veggie and fruit drawers: lentils, spinach, romaine, blueberries, cucumbers, raspberries, almonds, carrots and avocado. Literally anything. You don’t even need a dressing because there are so many tastes.”

Last week we reported that she was itching to have Candle 79 open up an L.A. location. While the actress is vegetarian, the restaurant is vegan. Perhaps dining on their food will be enough to get the actress to give up her pizza omelets…
