Julia Roberts focuses on eating healthy, protein-packed meals to keep her full during the day — but she has a weakness around cookies.
“I love a good cookie!” the actress tells WHO.
The star also loves pasta, and will often swap out her chicken at lunch for some noodles. “Why is everybody scared of pasta? Pasta never did anything to you,” she jokes. “Don’t be mean to pasta.”
But before she goes for the sweets or Italian favourites, Roberts starts out the day with a hearty breakfast, typically with eggs.
