While training for X-Men: Apocalypse, Olivia Munn lost so much weight (12 pounds by the time she was done), Page Six accused her of looking "scarily skinny" at the Oscars. But in the June 2016 issue of Women's Health, Olivia puts that much-discussed weight loss into context, and dishes about the impressive fitness plan she took on to train for the role—including tae kwon do, sword-fighting, and a diet made up of a whopping 80 percent fruits and vegetables. Although she says she still eats mostly clean and organic, the punishing regimen is over. But she still has the same delicious breakfast every day: almond milk whipped up into smoothies.
We're all about almond milk too: It's lusciously creamy-tasting and indulgent (and healthy too! Weird). Plus it's filling, fiber-rich, and packed with vitamins B, E and D—for strong muscles, smooth skin and healthy immunity, respectively. It's also cholesterol-free and lactose-free, though it doesn't have as much protein or calcium as cow's milk. At around 60 calories per cup, it's definitely the breakfast drink of champions.
Olivia's favorite almond milk? The kind she makes herself. The process is actually incredibly easy, if you're willing to soak almonds in a bowl overnight. That's the only time-consuming part, and it takes almost zero effort. The Kitchn has a great recipe for almond milk. The sweet, creamy, nutty result keeps for two or three days in the fridge, and you can use it to invent your own smoothies with whatever fruit combo you want, or try one of these recipes.
Not feeling so virtuous every morning? Olivia has other breakfast favorites too, ones we can definitely get behind:
Meanwhile, if you believe the New York Times's recent article about breakfast, turns out the morning meal is not necessarily all it's cracked up to be. But this is what the New York Times looks like:
