The “Zookeeper” actress showed off her rockin’ bod in a small white bikini in the publication’s latest installment while also chatting about her health conscious ways.
Highlights from Miss Dawson’s interview are as follows, for more be sure to pick up the issue on newsstands soon.
On the importance of not giving up exercising during tough times:
“It’s meditative and calming to get your body in motion,” she says. “But getting back in the saddle can be the hardest thing.”
On her mother being a health-conscious person:
“My mom was practicing vegan and raw diets years ago, so I understood eating healthy at a young age. We even belonged to the local co-op. I mean, we had Spam too, because we were poor and had to take whatever we could get, but we stopped eating white bread when I was 6.”
On letting her body call the shots when it comes to food:
“Whether it craves fresh vegetables or foie gras, nothing makes me feel better than having something I really enjoy. I’m great at salads because I love chopping things up, but I also enjoy making dishes like lasagna and coconut rice with pork chops. The stress you put yourself through for having a treat is probably a thousand times worse for you than the sugar you just had.”
