The environment in the hit movie The Devil Wears Prada may completely disregard wellness (ahem, nonexistent work-life balance and loads of unhealthy eating habits), but times have changed, and so have its characters. The just-released sequel to the best-selling book, called When Life Gives You Lululemons, follows Emily Charlton (AKA Emily Blunt‘s character) as she navigates the athleisure- and leggings-centric atmosphere of her new life in Greenwich, Connecticut—which might as well be an entirely different world than the one she inhabited with Miranda Priestly, in a job a million girls would kill to have, at Runway magazine. And given the healthy habits of Charlton’s creator, author Lauren Weisberger, it seems the character may be in store for a wellness reset.
While talking to The Strategist about her favorite things, Weisberger dished on her must-have, healthy-living accessories—and for some items, the love runs especially deep. For example, if you’ve ever worried that you may have a real addiction to almond butter, know that Weisberger probably has you beat. “Heather Bauer [RD, CND], the nutritionist, turned me on to these almond-butter to-go packets that are exactly 90 calories. Now there are, like, 50 of them in my purse”—which may or may not be of a cerulean hue. When asked how she prefers to consume the protein-rich nut butter, Weisberger asked if someone else could be bored with questions—just kidding, she didn’t say that at all. “I put them on crackers or even lick them straight from the packet, which is a bit gross but delicious,” she actually said.

The author also shared her healthy addiction to a $26 dupe (currently sold out, and for good reason) of the pricey but miraculous Drunk Elephant Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil. “Now I have these giant bottles of marula oil for no money that I go through like crazy and don’t have to ration or feel guilty at all,” Weisberger says. “I use it as a moisturizer day and night on my face and also under my makeup to help it go on smoothly.”
If Weisberger’s recommendations can serve as any indication, it’s safe to say her new book will be chock-full of wellness-tinged wisdom (and hilarious one-liners, duh). That’s all.
