Lucy Hale’s Diet
Hale follows a pescatarian diet, which means she consumes primarily plant-based products but also some seafood, and she loves her coffee. She avoids dairy and processed foods and fills up on things like eggs, avocados, salads, hummus and veggies. That said, her motto is ‘everything in moderation’ and if she’s out with friends, she’ll dig into the french fries, pasta, or whatever they’re having. In 2017, Hale gave up alcohol in favor of a healthier lifestyle. She’s a big fan of kombucha and she carries a water bottle pretty much everywhere she goes.

Hale says she goes to sleep thinking about her morning coffee. Her favorite breakfast food is avocado toast with a poached egg. Another staple is a breakfast burrito.
Hummus is a Mideastern dip made from a base of chickpeas and sesame, but just about anything can be added to it, like garlic, peppers or olives. Hale says she’s pretty picky about her hummus.
Ranch Is the Answer
Hale says she ate a ton of ranch dressing on her salads while she was recording her album Road Between.
One of Hale’s favorite cheats is her grandmother’s pancakes. She also won’t say no to pasta or fries.
