The star keeps happy and sane with crystals and a good night in.

Actress Lea Michele is a meat eater in public and a vegetarian in private.

The Scream Queens star prefers to eat greens when she's relaxing in her gorgeous West Los Angeles home, and admits her new favourite food to cook up in her marble-lined kitchen is a homemade pizza with truffle, radicchio and Parmesan cheese on a whole-wheat crust.

“When I’m home, I keep my diet vegetarian, almost vegan, and gluten-free,” she explains in InStyle's Home and Design issue, opening her pad to the publication.

Although she loves cooking for herself, whipping up a meal for loved ones is one of Lea's favourite pastimes.

"When I was a little girl, I used to play a game where I was a waitress, and I would say to my parents, ‘Can I take your order?’" she recalls. "I love asking people what they want to eat, and I love making it for them.”

Lea's meals are so good, she's finding a lot of her friends love to come over for dinner, which is a good thing for a recluse like Lea.

"I’m a homebody," she reveals. "I’m not a party girl. I’ve never been that. Trust me, I love to go out and share a nice bottle of wine with some friends over a delicious meal, but my perfect night is at home with people I love.”

Another way the former Glee star ensures she is at her healthiest is to recharge with crystals while having a quiet night in.

“I accept them from people I care about and believe have good energy themselves," she smiles.
