We knew Nina Dobrev was a health nut (she ordered oatmeal at our cover shoot last year!). But now we’re finding out she’s a fitness buff, too. Keep reading to hear how she staves off stress—and the awesome new project she’s a part of.
GL: What’s your favorite way to work out?
Nina: I’ll practice yoga or play sports like volleyball, wakeboarding or swimming. It has to be fun. I need to stay active to feel good—not only physically but also for my state of mind.
What healthy foods do you heart?
I just bought a great blender, so I make shakes with tons of veggies and fruit. I basically throw in whatever I’ve got on hand—spinach, carrots, beets, ginger, celery, apples and berries.
Do you have any stress-busting tips for our Get Fit Fast readers?
Yoga is my go-to stress reliever. In my new home, I’ve created a Zen Den. It has yoga mats, candles, a giant Buddha carving and a really big antique leaning wall mirror (to be able to watch my alignment when I’m practicing).
We heard you’re doing some work for breast cancer awareness. What are you up to this October?
It’s really exciting to be a part of PUMA’s Project Pink
. They donate 100 percent of the profits from the sale of their Project Pink gear to breast cancer. I’m also working to rally all of my Twitter followers (you can follow me @NinaDobrev
) to raise even more money. When anyone tweets #projectpink, PUMA will donate $1, up to $25,000, to the cause.
