Kerry Washington reveals prenatal plan: Protein, popcorn, 'Pregnancy Project'

Expectant mother and "Scandal" superstar Kerry Washington is focused on enjoying a healthy, happy pregnancy. As part of achieving that goal, she's added some holistic diet foods to her menus, reports Ecorazzi. In addition, she's working out with celebrity trainer Tracy Anderson, creator of the "Pregnancy Project" regime, reported the New York Post.

“I am not a vegan, but I like vegan protein shakes,” Kerry explained. Think that they don't taste good? Try Kerry's secret addition.

“I mix them with coconut water instead of regular water. That’s my secret to having them taste better," she said.

And when it comes to snacks, Kerry has no problems naming her favorite, which is a whole grain choice high in fiber.

“I love popcorn. I could live on popcorn. The writers of 'Scandal' have made my character Olivia Pope have a similar relationship with popcorn. But I don’t mind because I get to eat popcorn at work,” she laughed.

When it comes to fitness, Kerry is a believer in Pilates and, now that she's pregnant, prenatal fitness expert Tracy Anderson. In addition to Tracy's "Pregnancy Project" (click for details), Tracy has created a series of exercise DVDs, such as "Tracy Anderson: Precision Toning" (click for more information).

And overall, there are no "Scandal"-worthy occurrences in her private life.

"I actually live quietly," she told the NY Post. "Work hard. Get bored easily."
