Kate Hudson's Secret to Staying Fit? She Says This Diet Is the Best She's Ever Tried

Kate Hudson always has that glow. You know what we mean. The actress, author, mom of two, and apparel company Fabletics co-founder seems to always have that fresh-faced, bright-eyed look, no matter where she is or what she's doing.

So what's her secret to staying so impossibly gorgeous and healthy? Lots of pilates and dancing, she revealed in an interview with SELF. "I believe in traditional pilates because I think that our bodies need to be aligned, and what that does for your body is it makes it so strong,” she said in the interview.

Exercise is only half the story, however. Hudson has dabbled with a lot of different diets, including being vegan, vegetarian, pescatarian, and Paleo. What worked best for her (and gave her the best skin of her life)? Going vegan, she revealed.

Currently, she's not totally vegan, but tries to eat vegan two to three times a week. On those days, her diet consists of lots of beans, spinach, and kale. But her absolute favorite vegan meal? The meat-free Impossible Burger from Crossroads Kitchen in L.A. "It’s one of the greatest things. It’s so good. It’s crazy how they’ve been able to do that — it tastes just like a regular burger," Hudson marveled.

When she's not eating vegan, Hudson cooks a lot of meatballs — "My kids love meatballs" she said — and makes what she calls "Nothing Chicken," a dish that's nothing more than chicken, lots of salt, and pepper. "When you salt a chicken generously and put it in the oven at 450, for 20 minutes on one side and then 20 minutes on the other, and you take it out, it’s perfect. You don’t need anything else," she told SELF.

Whatever she's eating — whether vegan or not — it's clearly working.
