Glee Star Lea Michele: Vegetarian Lasagna Roll-up Recipe

Fox phenomenon Glee returned a couple of weeks ago, and fans could not be more excited to spend their Tuesday nights singing along with the musical cast. Actress Lea Michele plays perfectionist and self-proclaimed star vocalist Rachel Berry on Glee. In reality, Lea Michele has more than lived up to her Glee character Rachel’s dreams. Lea made her Broadway debut at age 8 and has continued to sing to sold-out crowds ever since.

To keep up with her busy Glee schedule, Lea Michele needs to eat healthy, balanced meals. A great way to eat healthily when you don’t have a lot of time is to cook one recipe that will provide several meals throughout the week. Lea Michele’s Vegetarian Lasagna Roll-up Recipe includes a variety of veggies, for vitamins and fiber, and cheese, for protein and calcium. To make the recipe a bit healthier, try substituting low-fat cheese or using less cheese and adding more vegetables. Bon appétit! Continue for the recipe

Kellan Lutz shirtless. Kellan Lutz got this body with this workout and diet.

Twilight: Eclipse is out on June 30, which means that Bella (Kristen Stewart), Edward (Robert Pattinson), Alice (Ashley Greene), Victoria (Bryce Dallas Howard), Jacob (Taylor Lautner), and – of course – Emmett, played by Kellan Lutz, are back.

Kellan Lutz, who also happens to be the new Calvin Klein cover model, is fitter than ever for his role reprisal.  During his time off since Twilight: New Moon, Kellan spent a lot of time working outside of the gym by swimming and hiking. But when it came down to getting ready for Twilight: Eclipse, Kellan Lutz hit the gym hard with the workout routine (below) covered in Men’s Health.

In addition, he and the rest of the cast were put through a 6-week “fighting camp,” according to co-star Peter Facinelli. “That’s all we had to do for six weeks,” Facinelli said. “We did fight choreography mixed in with working with a personal trainer so that we’d have the stamina to be able to pull off the fight sequences.”

“They created these giant treadmills called ‘Death Sleds.’ And we would just run on them for hours at a time, at 10-minute intervals,” he said.

Workout Routine

Warmup

Kellan Lutz begins every workout with at least five minutes of cardio and then he follows that with some core work.

Directions

Complete one set of each exercise. Rest 60-90 seconds. Then repeat. Do two more circuits (if you can).

Reverse Crunches [20 reps]

Lie face up on the floor with your palms facing down. Bend your hips and knees 90 degrees. Raise your hips off the floor and crunch them inward. Pause, and then slowly lower your legs until your heels neatly touch the floor.
