Whether you blasted “Candy” throughout the early aughts or have been religiously watching This Is Us every Tuesday night since the show premiered, you can probably conjure a mental image of Mandy Moore’s contagious smile. And if you follow the star’s empowering wellness diet, you might soon be flashing your pearly whites a whole bunch as well.

Moore recently opened up about some of her healthy habits—she goes to bed “obscenely early,” makes it her mission to stay super hydrated, and doesn’t drink a lot of alcohol—but one in particular really stands out: Since turning 30, her self-love meter is at an all-time high—and her food diet is only a fraction of her routine to take care of herself. (Though, her favorite Paleo pumpkin pie recipe sounds pretty incredible.)

“I’m taking care of myself, mentally especially. I’m outside, I’m getting some vitamin D, I’m hiking, I’m feeling connected and grounded, I’m going to therapy. All of that stuff factors into my life so much more than, like, What do I eat?“—Mandy Moore

“I love myself so much more—or I care less—than I did in my twenties,” she told Byrdie. “As long as I feel good and I know that everything is in moderation (including moderation)…I’m taking care of myself, mentally especially. I’m outside, I’m getting some vitamin D, I’m hiking, I’m feeling connected and grounded, I’m going to therapy. All of that stuff factors into my life so much more than, like, What do I eat? I don’t stress out about that stuff.”

Rather, Moore focuses on what’s really important to her: Nourishing her body with much more than what she’s putting on her plate. Regardless of age, everyone could stand to embrace a tip or two from the actress’s Zen mind-set. (BRB, downloading a meditation app now.)
