  • - I'm Lucy Hale and this is everything I eat

  • in a day. (air clicks)

  • (hands clap) (air whooshes)

  • (cheerful instrumental music)

  • Okay, the first thing I do when I wake up,

  • and I hate to admit this,

  • I check my phone.

  • Actually that's not true.

  • I pee and then I'll check my phone.

  • What's the app?

  • I mean I'll probably like check Instagram.

  • I know it's so bad but one of my goals

  • during this quarantine is to set aside 30 minutes

  • in the morning before I do anything to make a cup of coffee

  • or meditate or journal.

  • I've done it a couple of days,

  • it's just so hard to break that cycle

  • but I am working on it.

  • I am a breakfast person.

  • I think about breakfast all the time.

  • I like all the meals but I think breakfast

  • is definitely my favorite.

  • But my breakfast can vary from like a peanut butter

  • perfect food bar to like chocolate chip pancakes

  • with bacon and eggs.

  • Just kinda depends on the day.

  • Out of coffee and tea, I am 155% more a coffee person.

  • I kept trying to get into tea.

  • I fee like it's very official and very adult,

  • like a cup of tea before bed but

  • dare I say it's boring.

  • No offense, maybe I'm just doing it wrong.

  • Maybe I'm drinking the wrong types of tea.

  • Ah, but I love coffee any time of day,

  • morning, night, afternoon.

  • I actually go to sleep excited

  • about my cup of coffee in the morning

  • and obviously right now all the coffee shops are closed

  • so I've been really becoming buddies with my Keurig.

  • And I like a lot of creamer with my coffee.

  • I'm like slowly trying to work my way down to black coffee

  • because Lord knows how much sugar I'm having in the morning

  • but you know it really gets me going.

  • A typical breakfast in the day,

  • in the day in the life, in the day in life of Lucy.

  • I really love eggs.

  • I like I always crave eggs but I think the breakfast

  • that I have most often is one slice of wheat toast

  • in the toaster twice, so let it pop up, put it down,

  • pop up again, down, so it's like really, really crispy,

  • and there is this almond butter.

  • It's honey vanilla almond butter by RX, I believe

  • and it's a little blue tub.

  • I'm gonna go grab it, hold on 'cause I'm not doing

  • a good job of explaining.

  • (air rustles)

  • Yes.

  • I was right.

  • It's RX nut butter, the vanilla--

  • I'm out of breath.

  • The vanilla almond butter flavor.

  • I probably put a little too much,

  • too big of a serving on

  • 'cause I'm always like two tablespoons,

  • I probably have four to six.

  • Anyway, you slather that on,

  • you get a good banana and you chop it up

  • and then you get some local honey

  • and you just drizzle that one,

  • and if you're really feeling crazy,

  • you sprinkle a little cinnamon on,

  • get your cup of coffee,

  • seize the day.

  • So after breakfast--

  • I'll actually explain my quarantine day.

  • I'm letting myself sleep in till like 10,

  • sometimes 11 every day, which is unheard of for me.

  • I'm up at 6 a.m. all the time.

  • My body's a little out of whack.

  • So we're sleeping in, we're still making our toast,

  • we're still having our cup of coffee,

  • and then my dog Elvis, who sitting on the couch over there,

  • we go for our fist walk of the day around the neighborhood,

  • which varies from like 30 to 45 minutes.

  • We wave at our neighbors.

  • We say hello.

  • We listen to music.

  • We listen to true crime podcasts.

  • Usually, then I'll get my workout in

  • and so I just got a Peloton treadmill

  • and then I'll do like a livestream yoga

  • or I'll do a livestream training mate,

  • which is my favorite workout class in L.A.

  • SoulCycle, I miss SoulCycle so bad.

  • Just makes me happy.

  • It's like my church.

  • I just think exercise is the best medicine

  • that you could ask for

  • so it's a big part of my life, for sure.

  • After that's done, I've taught myself to cross stitch.

  • Right now I'm cross stitching a little pig.

  • He's super cute.

  • I'm reading.

  • I'm reading a really great book called

  • "Where the Crawdads Sing", which is just like

  • the most beautiful written book

  • I've read in a really long time.

  • Then we go on walk number two with Elvie.

  • A lot of FaceTime with family and friends

  • 'cause I've been doing this quarantine alone.

  • I feel for people who are in a house

  • with someone they can't stand,

  • but I really feel (hands clap)

  • also for people who are doing this alone

  • because let me tell you, there have been tears.

  • But you know what, there will be an end to it all

  • and it'll be okay.

  • We got this.

  • The typical lunch for me would be sushi,

  • but like sashimi so just the fish on top of rice.

  • There's a place near me that does yellowtail and jalapeno

  • with yuzu sauce.

  • And then there albacore tuna with crispy onions.

  • I even like uni, which is sea urchin.

  • I love it all.

  • I'm a very adventurous eater.

  • Yes, snacks always.

  • Snacks 24 seven.

  • I'm the biggest snacker.

  • We love--

  • We, me, pita bread and hummus, any kind of hummus.

  • Red pepper, original, pine nut, garlic,

  • they even have like Thai curry hummus

  • and taco-inspired hummus.

  • But if we're going a healthier route like celery hearts,

  • which is the center of the celery.

  • It's the best part.

  • And carrots and when I have carrots I share them with Elvis

  • 'cause my dog Elvis loves carrots.

  • But I also love this candy called Sweet Treats.

  • (bell dings) and it's like the

  • healthier candy and they have these peach rings,

  • they have Swedish fish, gummy bears, sour gummy bears.

  • I think it's like less than 100 calories per bag

  • and it's not like you get three pieces.

  • That's why I'm always so pissed off.

  • You get a bag of candy and it's like

  • three pieces for 200 calories.

  • No, this bag is--

  • You get like 15 pieces.

  • You should ask my mom this question.

  • Does Lucy get hangry?

  • Oh my goodness. (dramatic instrumental music)

  • My mom used to say even as a little girl

  • she would have to fill her purse with snacks

  • because the second (finger snaps)

  • Lucy turned hungry it was game over.

  • And I still to this day get really hangry

  • but I'm not like screaming and crying anymore,

  • but I can't focus, I can't talk, I get irritable.

  • (cheerful instrumental music)

  • I also love a good ice cream bar or Greek yogurt bar.

  • I have these chocolate chip cookie dough ones

  • in my fridge right now.

  • But yes, to answer your question, love snacking.

  • Snacks, snacks, snacks.

  • I just got way off topic.

  • Lunch. (chuckles)

  • Sushi or like a good salad.

  • I know that's so boring like who craves salad

  • but I love a good kale salad with like a blackened salmon.

  • But here's the thing about my salads,

  • I like a lot of dressing so it's like

  • a little salad with my dressing.

  • Sometimes I even do ranch.

  • I know, it's bad.

  • It's great, ranch is great.

  • Ranch is the best thing ever.

  • - I love your product, man.

  • I love your product.

  • - What else do I have for lunch?

  • I love a club sandwich.

  • I made one the other day.

  • This isn't the healthy route but it's the good route.

  • So you butter two sides of wheat toast

  • and you brown them

  • and then in another pan you fry an egg (chuckles)

  • and on the fried egg I put vegan cheddar cheese

  • but you can put whatever cheese you want on the egg

  • so it likes melts and then I grilled up some turkey bacon,

  • I got some nitrate-free turkey breast,

  • slice up some heirloom tomatoes.

  • Can't forget the avocado.

  • I had a very, very, very ripe avocado

  • and then crushed red pepper,

  • a little bit of mayo, a little bit of mustard.

  • (hands clap)

  • Smack that into--

  • Smack that kid on the floor

  • It reminded me of that song.

  • But the sandwich is like this big

  • so I had a problem eating it but it was very good.

  • So we love a sandwich.

  • Favorite food city?

  • Ooh.

  • I recently went to Barcelona

  • and that is a food city.

  • I'm not even certain what I ate at some of these places.

  • (hands clap) This was the weirdest thing

  • I ate in Barcelona.

  • Peeled white asparagus mixed with sea urchin, uni,

  • just the orange goop.

  • But it was interesting, you know.

  • I think that's the coolest thing about travel

  • is tasting other cultures foods.

  • It's the best way to experience a city in my opinion.

  • So usually what I do at work,

  • I'll Postmates something.

  • I'm a big soup eater.

  • I think this last season of "Katy Keene"

  • I think I solely survived on wonton soup,

  • chicken wonton soup and pho, vegetarian pho.

  • I choose vegetarian broth

  • and there's a bunch of veggies in there

  • and I put tofu and cilantro, basil, the hot sauce,

  • beansprouts, and it's just so comforting.

  • I think 'cause it was cold in New York

  • I just went through a soup phase.

  • We can cheat meal lunch.

  • Well usually if I'm gonna cheat I go cheat meal dinner

  • and my favorite, my absolute favorite, favorite,

  • well I love food so it's hard to choose a favorite

  • but shoestring French fries with a buttermilk ranch dressing

  • and like a really good burger.

  • There's a place in L.A. called Stout.

  • Great meat, really interesting combinations.

  • Like they put fig on one with caramelized onions

  • but mainly I'm the person who

  • I always have to have French fries

  • otherwise what's the point.

  • That's my cheat meal.

  • And a diet Coke. (croaks)

  • I like to eat kind of an early dinner

  • between like five and six.

  • I know that's really early.

  • Sometimes my friends wanna go to dinner at 9 p.m.

  • I was like, "You know who you're talking to."

  • I will be in REM sleep at the table

  • if we go to dinner at 9 p.m.

  • Okay, so recently I have a newfound love of Thai curry.

  • I don't know why it took me 30 years to discover

  • that I love curry and I'm the type of person

  • that I'll have the same thing,

  • like the same thing for breakfast, the same thing for lunch,

  • same thing for dinner over and over and over again

  • until I'm sick of it and don't want it for another year
