‘I Love a Good Cookie!’: What Julia Roberts Eats in a Day

Posted on

Watch the full episode of People Cover Story: World’s Most Beautiful People now on the new People/Entertainment Weekly Network (PEN). Go to  PEOPLE.com/PEN or download the PEN app on your favorite device.

Julia Roberts focuses on eating healthy, protein-packed meals to keep her full during the day — but she has a weakness around cookies.

“I love a good cookie!” the actress tells PEOPLE, who named her the 2017 Most Beautiful Woman.

The star also loves pasta, and will often swap out her chicken at lunch for some noodles. “Why is everybody scared of pasta? Pasta never did anything to you,” she jokes. “Don’t be mean to pasta.”

But before she goes for the sweets or Italian favorites, Roberts starts out the day with a hearty breakfast, typically with eggs. Read on for the rest of her food diary, and for more on Roberts and the other women of the year, pick up a copy of PEOPLE, on newsstands now.
