On December 5, Carrie Underwood starred as Maria in NBC's new version of "The Sound of Music." The country legend quickly became a live-on-TV legend for her beautifully moving, realistic portrayal.
"Every day," she told the Christian Science Monitor previously, "I feel like I discover new things and how to go places in acting that I didn't think I could go."
Carrie's charm combined with her singing skills made it a memorable three hours. (If you missed it or want to watch it again, it's available for order now: Find out about "The Sound of Music Live!" by clicking here.)
What fueled her fire for the live broadcast? A vegan diet. In a interview with Women's Health, Carrie revealed her favorite foods (not to be confused with her "Favorite Things").
For those familiar with "Sound of Music," there aren't any "crisp apple streudels" or schnitzel with noodles" on Carrie's list.
Carrie's rules for staying slim:
- Eat breakfast, such as oatmeal.
- Enjoy plant-based protein with lunch, such as a veggie burger or meat-free quesadilla with salsa, black beans, tomatoes, onions and spinach.
- Take time for snacks, but make them healthy, such as Kashi’s Heart to Heart cereal, which she always carries in her purse.
This do-it-yourself country crooner cooks all her own food on the tour bus and rarely uses catering.
Despite her busy schedule, Carrie makes time for fitness. Her routine ranges from running to jumping rope. And, now that she's starred in "The Sound of Music," it appears to include dancing and yodeling as well!
