Lea Michele uses kale and blueberries from her local farmers’ market to make her daily smoothie.

Lea Michele won’t keep any junk food in her home.

The Scream Queens actress is known for her svelte physique, which she frequently shows off in figure-hugging ensembles. But when it comes to her diet, Lea finds that she often struggles with temptation, so made the decision only to stock her house with snacks that are good for her.

“I just keep good stuff in my home,” Lea told People magazine for their Wellness issue. "That way when I'm here and I want to pick or I want to just kind of snack, I know that all of the choices I'm making are good.”

On Lea’s daily menu is a bowl of granola and goat’s milk yoghurt for breakfast, followed by a smoothie made from kale and blueberries from her local farmers’ market.

As well as watching what she eats, a regular exercise regime is important for Lea to maintain her toned figure. She refuses to let her body become bored with her workouts though, and mixes things up by trying everything from horse riding to spinning.

It’s the latter that has become a favourite though, with Lea recently admitting she’s such a fan of SoulCycle spin classes that she has

splashed out on a bike for her house.

"I rotate between hiking and hot yoga and then the occasional spin class," she told People earlier this year (16). "I bought a bike so I can do spin classes in my house! I'm down for trying anything."

Lea, 30, is also a big fan of Pilates, and frequently posts pictures showing off her incredible flexibility on her Instagram page.

She was introduced to the low impact exercise routine by Scream Queens star Emma Roberts, and the pair stay in shape while filming the hit U.S. TV show in New Orleans by hitting the Romney Pilates Center numerous times every week.
