Jenna Dewan-Tatum said she typically drinks a green smoothie for breakfast and eats tabouli for lunch, Women’s Health reported Wednesday. She also discussed her dance workouts with trainer Jennifer Johnson.
Jenna Dewan-Tatum is a flawless human. Not only is she a successful actress and dancer—as we saw when she first came to us in Step Up—but her and her hubby Channing Tatum are constantly giving us relationship, career, and life #goals. The two welcomed their daughter, Everly, to their family three years ago, and motherhood definitely suits Dewan-Tatum. The star looks happier and healthier than ever! So, what fuels such a magnificent lady? Women’s Health has the scoop. Dewan-Tatum is the fitness mag’s July/August cover star, and she dished on what she typically eats each day.
Dewan-Tatum told the mag she likes to start her day off with a homemade green smoothie. It’s got the usual fruits and veggies—spinach, kale, lemon, apple, banana, pear—but she adds her own twist with a dash of cod liver oil and some black sesame seeds. She blends it all with water, and she claims the concoction improves her skin, hair, and energy.
Instead of a traditional salad, Dewan-Tatum goes for a cultural treat for lunch. “I’m part Lebanese—my dad’s family—so I grew up with tabouli,” she told the mag. “It’s my favorite. I like to make things that will keep for a couple of days, and I can just grab and go.” Tabouli (also known as tabbouleh) is a chopped salad traditionally made with parsley, mint, bulgur, tomato, and scallions, topped off with olive oil and lemon juice. It’s fresh and filing. Here’s our recipe for a quick quinoa and chickpea tabbouleh.
Finally, the actress ends the day with a satisfying brown rice bowl. She adds in black beans plus a slew of colorful veggies, like purple potatoes, butternut squash, and asparagus. She tosses it all with a tahini sauce or olive oil. Bon appétit!
