Kaley Cuoco Swears By *This* Rule Whenever She Goes Out To Eat

Kaley Cuoco’s HBO Max hit series The Flight Attendant has just wrapped up its second season, and fans are already searching for hints about a possible season 3. And while Kaley stayed tight-lipped about what’s to come for Cassie Bowden, she sat down with Women’s Health to talk about her summer plans.

Kaley, 36, has been acting in and producing The Flight Attendant for the past two years, and earned herself an Emmy and Golden Globe nomination for its first season. This summer, Kaley is working on several exciting projects, including her new role as Smirnoff’s “Chief Summer Officer.” Basically, that means Kaley’s here to remind everyone how to make the most of this summer (taking those Summer Fridays and poolside cocktails included).

If you’re curious to know what the starlet does to stay healthy and energized, Kaley chatted with Women’s Health to share everything she eats in a day to stay on top of her game. Read on for all the details.

Breakfast

Like most of the planet, Kaley starts her day off with a hot cup of joe. Her go-to is an extra-hot oat milk latte that she drinks with a piece of sourdough toast slathered in peanut butter. That toast element is essential in her morning routine, and Kaley says she even travels with a toaster and her peanut butter so that she has breakfast covered every single day. Now, that is commitment.

Lunch

For her midday lunch break, Kaley loves pretty much anything with tuna. “I love tuna, [I] love it on a salad, love it in a wrap, love it in its own scoop, love it with chips,” says Kaley. “I’m like obsessed with tuna.”

She also doesn’t wait too long between meals.”I learned over the past few years that I have to eat every two hours,” says Kaley. “I just do, and I’m not talking about giant meals, but I literally start to fall apart, especially when I’m shooting…there has to be at least a snack or something that I’m eating because I just lose energy so quickly.”

Snack

Speaking of snacks, Kaley’s a big fan of Luna Bars and smoothies. She often goes to Juice Ranch and orders a Scotty’s Mint Chip that tastes like “mint chip ice cream,” except it’s loaded with nutritious ingredients such as avocado, cacao nibs, almond butter, and cashew milk.

“I love a smoothie,” she says. “I think it’s a great way to get a nice meal in there, and it’s quite easy.” Sometimes, Kaley also reaches for a rice cake, apples with peanut butter, or a pear, which is her “favorite fruit in the whole world.”

Dinner

Kaley loads up on protein at dinnertime and often opts for grilled salmon with baked potato and veggies. Sometimes she even eats it taco style. “If I had to say what I eat most, it would be salmon,” she says.

But one thing you won’t see near Kaley’s plate? Mushrooms. “I hate mushrooms. I don’t want them near me, so that can’t be anywhere near what I eat.”

If she goes out for dinner, Kaley follows a simple eating rule that she learned from her nutritionist, Kim, who she’s been working with since she was 15. “If I go to dinner, she immediately wants me to cut my plate in half, ” says Kaley. She’ll eat half and then “take a little break.” If she’s still hungry, she says she keeps eating. But “nine times out of 10,” she will realize she’s already full.

“Our eyes are definitely bigger than our stomach,” Kaley explains.

Dessert

Kaley reveals that she used to be “candy obsessed.” And although she doesn’t eat candy much these days, she still loves to grab something sweet or salty for dessert.

Her faves include Justin’s white chocolate pieces or popcorn. “I love the act of [eating] popcorn and watching a movie,” she says.

She also avoids eating sweets late at night. “I just don’t feel good after, and I don’t feel good when I wake up.”

Drinks

If she wants a little boozy treat, Kaley reaches for Smirnoff’s Red White & Berry or their original flavor. “I love their original drink…the original Smirnoff is fantastic, but the Red White & Berry is very much more summer,” says Kaley. “So, it’s much more enjoyable when it’s nice and hot outside, and it looks very, very, pretty.”

Her nutrition philosophy has changed over time.

Kaley has learned quite a few lessons about what fuels her body best over the years. For starters, she’s more aware of where and how she eats her meals. “I no longer watch TV while I eat. I think that’s a big distraction ’cause you’re not thinking about what’s going on…so it’s just being very mindful,” she says.

Kaley also explained that she used to put more limits on what she allowed herself to eat and would say no to snacking, which she says is now “completely down the drain.”

“I’m much healthier now than I used to be. And I feel better than I ever have, but I also probably eat more than I ever have, which is interesting,” she explains. “I’m actually eating smaller meals and drinking more water and less alcohol.”

As for what she wants for others, Kaley says, she doesn’t want people to be afraid to eat. “I think I used to be afraid to eat, and now I just know the right things to eat,” she tells WH, “There’s a huge difference.”
