Kristen Bell says she loves to cook because it helps relax her after a long day and it's her way of showing that she cares for the people around her.
"I love to cook. I have a tiny Italian grandmother inside me," Bell joked. "If someone walks in, I'm like, 'Let me make you a sandwich!' We all have a giving-love language and a receiving-love language. I show love by cooking. When people have patience with me, I feel so loved."
When it comes to her diet, Bell has been a vegetarian since she was just 11-years-old because of her love for animals. "I love animals, and I stand by my values," she said. "So in the morning, I have an apple, and if we have leftover pizza, I scrape the toppings into egg whites. Pizza eggs are better than you can imagine! For lunch, I'll have a big salad and a veggie burger."
When it comes to her dinners, Bell likes to go all out with multiple courses.
"I'm a fan of multi-course dinners. Last night, I made brussel sprouts baked with balsamic vinegar, grapes and walnuts; butternut squash ravioli; and a 'garbage disposal' salad, which is everything in the veggie and fruit drawers: lentils, spinach, romaine, blueberries, cucumbers, raspberries, almonds, carrots, and avocado. Literally anything. You don't even need a dressing because there are so many tastes."
