For her post-workout AM meal, the 29-year-old newlywed steams two eggs over easy style, and tosses some sliced avocado and tomato onto her plate for a healthy dose of muscle-building protein as well as monounsaturated fats and lycopene. She washes it all down with a cup of English Breakfast Tea splashed with skim milk and sweetened with stevia.
