The Unexpected Thing Emma Roberts Drinks Every Morning

Emma Roberts is known for her effortlessly chic style—and this aesthetic translates to her thoughts on health and wellness. In an interview with Shape, Emma details her diet and exercise routine and her approach is, in a word, chill.

“I started working out regularly when I was living in New Orleans shooting American Horror Story: Coven several years ago. I really fell in love with the food there. To counter all I was eating, I worked out more. It was a great balance: I’d have fried-chicken sliders at night and then go to my yoga class the next morning,” she says. (In the end, we guess it’s really all about finding out what works for your body and makes you happy, as there’s no way this writer could eat fried-chicken sliders and still make it to yoga.)

“I start my day with a juice when I’m filming. I like Moon Juice; my favorite is Spirit Dust—that’s a fun way to begin the morning,” Emma says. “I also drink iced coffee even when it’s freezing outside because hot coffee doesn’t wake me up.” This is a delightful anecdote, and one that made us Google the caffeine content difference between iced and hot coffee. Our findings were inconclusive.

“For lunch, I’ll do a chopped salad with avocado, chicken and tomatoes. Dinner is a turkey burger, or salmon with teriyaki or ponzu sauce, and brown rice with broccoli. I need snacks, particularly when I’m working. Lately I’ve become obsessed with seaweed,” she adds. (Thank goddess she didn’t say kale.)

Among other foods the starlet consumes: chips and guac, cupcakes and Sidecar doughnuts. A woman after our own hearts.
