  • - Hi, I'm Mila Kunis and this is everything I eat in a day.

  • (jaunty music) (Mila laughs)

  • When I first wake up in the morning and I open my eyes

  • I get up because I have to get my kids ready for school.

  • But on a Monday through Friday, I now have to set an alarm.

  • My kids used to be the alarm where they would wake me

  • up and now they don't.

  • So what do I do?

  • I roll over, I press snooze once

  • and then I roll back to sleep for like five more minutes

  • and then alarm goes, Babe, beep beep.

  • And then I roll over and I wake

  • up and my bedroom goes through the bathroom.

  • And sometimes, or oftentimes I have to go tinkle.

  • So that's what I do.

  • I go tinkle.

  • Sometimes I brush my teeth before I enter the kitchen,

  • 'cause once I enter the kitchen,

  • I gotta get their lunches ready.

  • I gotta get their breakfast ready.

  • So I like to brush my teeth,

  • tinkle, enter kitchen, start process.

  • The first thing I eat when I wake up is coffee.

  • But I do have a very specific way that I like my coffee.

  • Oh, but it's gonna make me sound like (bleep) whatever.

  • I like drip coffee, like old school drip coffee.

  • Nothing fancy.

  • But my creamer, I'm very specific about.

  • This is not an ad, it's not even organic, okay?

  • People, don't get mad at me.

  • It's Silk Oat Milk Creamer.

  • And they have two flavors.

  • They have Vanilla, or Oatmeal Cookie.

  • I like the Vanilla Silk Oat Milk Creamer.

  • Very specific.

  • And here's why.

  • 'Cause I got my frother from Amazon

  • and I pour creamer in and I froth my creamer

  • and it becomes beautiful and delicious

  • and vanilla-y and sweet.

  • And then I pour my morning coffee

  • in there and it is wonderful.

  • So I don't eat first thing in the morning.

  • And I don't know when that shifted 'cause I used to.

  • And now I kind of wait

  • until two hours after I have my coffee.

  • So call that, let's say I have coffee at 6:30,

  • take the kiddos to school, whatever, do that whole thing.

  • I'm back at 8:30, I probably eat around 9, 9:30.

  • My typical breakfast sometimes is the leftovers

  • that my children didn't eat from the morning.

  • And I have this thing against wasting food.

  • And so I'll eat like their leftovers,

  • which isn't always satiating.

  • So I'll always finish it off

  • with like avocado toast that I make myself.

  • Wwhen I make my own avocado toast,

  • I like to make sure to grab bread that I have.

  • So whatever I have is what we're using.

  • And a lot of times it's something healthy because again,

  • I have children and so you try to do as much as you can.

  • So it's like a Dave's Killer Bread, right?

  • Like we have one of those.

  • And so it'll be like some whole grain bread

  • with like nuts and things and texture and crunch.

  • So I grab that.

  • More times than not, I'm running late

  • so I don't have time to toast it.

  • But let's go with the theory that I have magic time,

  • I toast it.

  • I then grab my avocado,

  • I'll cut it, scoop it, I'll smash it.

  • And then sometimes I like to put a little

  • Everything but the Bagel Seasoning on top of it.

  • And then if I'm feeling extra feisty,

  • I might put an egg on it or I like dips.

  • So I sometimes do like, this will make no sense,

  • but I'll do like two eggs over easy

  • and then I'll do like a piece

  • of toast and then I'll put like little dips on them.

  • And sometimes it's hummus, and sometimes I don't know,

  • I like to tzatziki, some, it's whatever, like little salads,

  • like whatever I have.

  • So normally I work, so I then go

  • and I plop myself down in front of a computer nowadays.

  • And then we Zoom.

  • Maybe if I'm lucky I go grab something to eat

  • like a fruit or a string cheese.

  • But more time than not, I don't have that time.

  • Somehow lunch surpasses me by.

  • Now my husband and I are working in at home.

  • And so if one of us doesn't have an afternoon something

  • or other, the other one grabs food for the other person.

  • So we'll mish-mash something together out of the fridge,

  • leftovers let it be or something small and quick.

  • Even like a protein smoothie, like I do have,

  • there's like a service that comes

  • and delivers smoothies to your house.

  • It's frozen.

  • You put in the freezer, it's really convenient.

  • I stick it out or my husband does it,

  • pours in like a non-dairy milk for me

  • and then a protein powder and then we smoothie it up

  • and then he drops it off on my table and I'm super grateful.

  • So I'll, it's probably not healthy if you're a dietician,

  • but sometimes I, I have a protein smoothie for lunch.

  • What do I cook?

  • Boy.

  • Sometimes I do something I call like bowl night

  • where it's like make your own bowl.

  • And I do like two bases and there'll be like a salad base

  • and a grain base, a quinoa and then I'll just chop

  • up a bunch of vegetables and cook a bunch of stuff.

  • And then you make your own veggie so to speak.

  • My kid is a pescatarian.

  • She does not eat meat.

  • So because she doesn't meat, neither does my husband.

  • And so I don't cook two separate meals,

  • 'cause I'm not a restaurant.

  • It's oftentimes much easier for me just to do a fish

  • and a healthy meal throughout the week.

  • So that's kind of what we do.

  • So I do baked salmon, fishes.

  • There's a service that I use guys.

  • You can pick like two meals, two dinners a night

  • or whatever and they send you all the groceries

  • for said meal with like a recipe.

  • So I do that twice a night

  • or twice a week and it's been lovely.

  • Okay, so I'm also super fortunate.

  • I have a mom that lives like 15 minutes away from me.

  • I mean with my dad.

  • But my mom and my mom is an incredible cook

  • and has cooked her whole life.

  • I never went out to eat.

  • I always had home cooked meals and she loves,

  • she still thinks that she's cooking

  • for four people when really it's just her and my dad.

  • And so when I kinda had kids,

  • she started like cooking for all of us.

  • So once a week she drops

  • off food at our house and it's always like, you know,

  • unbelievable food that my mom makes.

  • Russian meals is like a lot of food, just at all times.

  • The obvious.

  • You can start with (speaking Russian),

  • you can start with (speaking Russian),

  • then you can do borscht,

  • which is like a very Russian soup, also made of beets.

  • But if you don't like beets, don't eat it.

  • The Russians like smoked fish or fish in general.

  • Pickled fish.

  • Smoked fish.

  • Russians, or Ukrainians.

  • I know we're living in a time where I don't even

  • know what to call myself anymore.

  • They like to pickle things, mostly 'cause we had winters.

  • And so that's how you survived is by pickling food.

  • So we, we pickle everything.

  • My mom's a master pickler.

  • If you've never tried pickled watermelon, it's delicious.

  • Smoked herring. Delicious.

  • You eat it with some warm potatoes,

  • a little olive oil, little dill, little salt.

  • Mm. Yummy, yummy.

  • But my mom man, she can make a chicken soup.

  • There is something about her chicken soup

  • or I have to be more specific.

  • Her chicken broth.

  • The broth of her chicken soup is

  • unlike anything that I've ever been able to recreate.

  • By the way she cooks like, "Meh, just a little bit of this,

  • a little bit of that.

  • And then there's that and you kind of like meh, taste it."

  • So it's not
