Lea Michele tries to do some form of exercise each day.

The American actress has put a focus on her own health and wellbeing recently, after several difficult years where she had to balance work commitments with grieving for the loss of her boyfriend and Glee co-star Cory Monteith, who died from a heroin and alcohol overdose in 2013.

Lea finds working out to be highly beneficial for her physical and mental wellbeing.

"I exercise every day if I can," she told Shape magazine. "If I'm not working out, I'm on a hike or swimming in my backyard. I have a bike on the Scream Queens set, and when there's a 20-minute break, I'll ride around the Paramount lot. I always keep moving."

The 30-year-old is also mindful of her diet and prefers to eat a range of healthy foods.

While she loves to snack, Lea takes a smart approach to what she consumes whenever possible.

"I'll slice two oranges in the morning and leave them on a dish in my kitchen and eat them throughout the day. I always have blueberries and carrots and hummus on hand. And I like little bags of Popchips or Pirate's Booty (corn puffs) if I'm watching TV."

Though the brunette beauty won't stop herself from indulging in the occasional treat. In particular, she can't say no to anything that is topped in gooey cheese.

"My favourite is pizza. And mac and cheese. And grilled cheese. Anything with cheese," she laughed.

"For dessert, I'll usually order a cheese plate rather than something sweet. I'd eat an entire block of Wisconsin cheddar over chocolate cake any day."Read more at:blue formal dresses
