Ellen Pompeo Tells of Her Healthy Secret
The Grey’s Anatomy actress Ellen Pompeo graces the cover of Self mag April 2010. The 40-year-old mama shared her usual and happy life style including being a mom, preparing healthy salads for her family and so on. Here are the highlights of the exclusive for the magazine.
On spending time with hubby Chris Ivery:
“It’s easy to get lost in the baby. But you have to make the time for your relationships. You have to make sure you give your husband attention. And I still see my friends all the time, too. It’s important to have a well-rounded life. You learn things from your friends, and they bring you joy, and you bring back all that happiness to your baby.”
On healthy eating:
“Take a few hours and prepare lunch for the week. On Sundays, I premake everything for salads. I boil a dozen eggs and parboil beets. I chop lettuce, cilantro, scallions and parsley and put it all in Ziploc bags. During the week, I just grab handfuls, add dressing, dump in a can of beans, some goat cheese, and I’m ready to go.”
On playing with baby Stella:
“I love to dance with Stella. She’s a big Jay-Z fan. She loves Beyonce, too. I sing ‘Single Ladies’ to her: ‘Put your hands up!’ Even though it’s probably an involuntary movement on her part, I think she’s really doing it.”
Sundays lunch together with the family! What can be better!
