Joanna’s cookbooks may be full of comfort food deliciousness, but the Fixer Upper host tries to eat very healthy in her everyday life. One way she does that? By incorporating as much fresh produce as she can into her and her family’s meals. “I’ve got this huge garden in the back where we all eat all of our food, all of our leafy greens, our veggies, our fruits, come from that garden,” she told Health. And according to Eating Well, Joanna’s go-to lunch is a big salad topped with lean protein (which often follows her breakfast of eggs and coffee).
But that doesn’t mean that Joanna doesn’t indulge from time to time. She says her diet is all about balance. “Typically with sweets, I go all out,” she confessed in the same interview with Health. “As long as you’re balancing it with healthy food options, just don’t be so hard on yourself.”
