Food Network's Giada De Laurentiis’ Beauty, Fitness, & Sweet Secrets

Food Network star, celebrity chef, mom, and amazing chick all together Giada De Laurentiis is around food all day, yet she somehow manages to stay fit, energized, and gorgeous thanks to the little things… lots of little things- we call them DailyQuickies.

Sure, a daily workout routine is fantastic, and choosing the grilled over the fried chicken is a great idea if you want to stay slim, but more than the major decisions, it’s often the little things in life- the decision to take the stairs instead of the escalator, the decision to snack on yogurt instead of a chocolate bar, the decision to exfoliate your skin before bed instead of falling asleep with makeup on- it’s often those little things that make up the beautiful big picture. And Giada is living proof! She shared a few of her QuickieTips with me including:

Quick Energy: Nutella OR Yogurt w/Homemade Granola and Fruit
Car Snacks: Almonds and Dried Fruit
Little Indulgences: Frozen Chocolate Chips
Healthy Meals: Small Portions
Exercise: Yoga- focus on Arms and Core (particularly important, she says, after having a baby)
Beauty Musts: Mascara and Lipstick
Beauty Indulgences: Mani/Pedi, Massage, Facials
At-Home Beauty Routine: Exfoliating and Eye Masks
Instant Energy: Espresso… “Works like a champ”
