The actress – who has starred in hit movies and on TV shows like “Divergent,” “Big Little Lies,” and both “Fantastic Beasts” films – is always tackling a big project. With all that work, it’s important to Kravitz to stay healthy and she’s spoken in interviews about her favourite foods and health regimens.

Kravitz generally eats vegan but sometimes eats ethically sourced meat. She also stays away from processed foods.
Kravitz believes in eating organic whenever she can, telling Byrdie in 2017 that “beauty and health start from the inside.”
Although Kravitz was raised vegan, she now eats meat but tries “to be conscious about where it’s coming from. But I stick to mostly vegan health food just because it’s how I grew up,” she told Harper’s Bazaar in 2016.
Some of her favourite things to eat and drink are “water, organic non-processed foods, supplements like fish oils for the skin, and probiotics for digestion,” she told W magazine in 2017.
Though her aim is to eat “unprocessed” food, Kravitz has also said it’s all about moderation.
“I try eating well – making sure you’re eating greens or steamed veggies, or stuff that doesn’t have a lot of oil or chemicals,” she told Elle in 2018. “But if you want to go to McDonald’s every once in a while, do it! But it’s about clean food that hasn’t been processed.”
Kravitz has been open about previously having an eating disorder and says she no longer believes in ‘depriving herself’
Kravitz has been open in interviews with Complex in 2015 and Vogue UK in 2019 about developing an eating disorder for 10 years, starting when she was 13 years old. She said the pressures of fame and Hollywood contributed to “feeling uncomfortable in her skin.”
Since then, Kravitz told Byrdie in 2018 that she doesn’t believe in “depriving yourself” when it comes to diets. Kravitz says “chocolate or anything with peanut butter” are her go-tos, and she enjoys drinking whiskey and red wine from time to time, according to an interview with Harper’s Bazaar.
She doesn’t use a trainer and prefers cardio as her exercise go-to
Kravitz told Harper’s Bazaar in 2016 that she doesn’t have a trainer because she prefers working out solo for some alone time.
“I’ve worked with a lot of trainers over the years for shows and films, so I know enough about fitness to do things on my own at this point,” she said.
Her preferred method of exercise is cardio, ranging from outdoor runs and hikes to the elliptical, according to the same interview with Harper’s Bazaar. She also said she does some exercises at home like stretches and leg exercises.
She drinks tea instead of coffee most of the time.
She also makes sure to drink enough water.
Kravitz used to be a big coffee drinker but has since cut down, instead enjoying matcha or chai tea in the morning, she told Harper’s Bazaar.
Although the star said she tries to get in enough water each day, she doesn’t always achieve it.
“Trying to drink enough water is such a huge thing,” she told Elle. “I really don’t. Sometimes I’ll realise it’s 5 p.m. and I’ve had the tiniest glass of water. I try to go to the gym or at least walk and move my body around.”
She also told W magazine that her facialist said the key to great skin is drinking lots of water and staying calm since stress and dehydration can lead to unwelcome breakouts.
