Reese Witherspoon on her favourite dishes and keeping that amazing body
Reese Witherspoon has been flaunting a super-toned figure in her latest flick 'This Means War' and it got me thinking, how does she do it?! Reese works hard on her fitness and is often spotted on her daily runs where she reportedly makes a three mile journey each day. Reese emphasises, 'I work out all the time anyway just to stay healthy. I don't believe in crash dieting or anything like that.' Not just a dedicated runner, Reese has also started practicing yoga for the health and wellbeing benefits.
From the South, Reese loves comfort food but uses healthy ingredients like fish and vegetables with rice to create her favourite family dinners. The creativity of cooking is a relaxing ritual for her and she enjoys cooking for her family. The traditional French dish Coq au Vin is one of her favourites.
A true blonde Southern girl, Reese loves fried foods but understands she needs to curb these from her diet and amp up her workout routine when she indulges. She loves her grandmother's spiced tea recipe where you take instant powdered tea, a can of Tang, a can of powdered lemonade, and you mix them all together with some nutmeg and cinnamon. Reese claims, 'I'm telling you, southern people will know this recipe. And you shake it all up, then you put it in a Mason jar, and put a piece of fabric on top and a piece of ribbon around it. Then, whenever you want, just put two scoops in hot water. It's the most delicious thing in the world.'
