Here, Hilary chats with Health about what she loves about writing, which workout she swears by, and her hard-earned secret to body confidence.
Q: What's your definition of living healthy?
A: Moderation is key. Eating healthily all the time can be boringyou know, when you take apart the menu and ask for everything on the side? Balance makes me feel good: I feel most healthy when I enjoy small bites of the things I love. I used to feel bad about eating French friesI'd think that I had blown my diet. But you have to think, That's OK, I'll eat healthier tomorrow.
Q: What are your favorite good-for-you snacks?
A: Recently, I have been eating a lot of vegetables and hummus and fruitstuff I never really liked before. If I am hungry before bed, I will grab a handful of blueberries. Greek yogurt is one of my favorite things in the whole world. Sometimes I'll chop up a bunch of veggies and put them in a food processor with Greek yogurt and make a dip. It's better if I snack throughout the day, because if I get hungry, Mike says I get "hangry," which is hungry-angry. It's not good.
