From working at a shoe store in Toronto to acting (and hiking) in Hollywood, Lyndie Greenwood (Sleepy Hollow) has come a long way.
Learn about Lyndie’s healthy lifestyle in this instalment of “it works for me.”
10 words that describe you: Fun, considerate, diplomatic, impatient, energetic, scattered, a little bit angry, funny, forgiving and spontaneous.
First paid job: Stone Ridge (shoe store) in the Toronto Eaton Centre. I bought a lot of shoes while I worked there.
Dream job: I’m living it. Acting, working on an awesome TV show. If I wasn’t doing this, I’d want to own a vineyard in southern France.
Where you see yourself in five years: I don’t like to plan that much. I didn’t even know I wanted to be an actress! I do know that I’d love to have a family and continue working.
Most memorable moment: Hiking in Griffith Park (in L.A). I remember the first time I went up there by myself and looked over LA. It was the first time I’d travelled on my own and it felt like a really big moment for me.
Favourite workout: Hiking – especially in L.A. I also love to run and do ballet barre.
Least favourite workout: Swimming.
Diet: I usually cook vegan food at home. When I go out I’ll eat anything, but I try to eat local and organic meat.
Go-to healthy snack: I love seaweed snacks dipped in hummus.
Favourite food indulgence: Poutine.
Wine or beer? Wine.
Coffee or tea? Tea.
Indoor or outdoor workouts? Outdoor.
Morning or evening workouts? Morning.
Celeb crush: Norman Reedus (he plays Daryl Dixon on TV series The Walking Dead).
Dream travel destination: Wine tour through Europe.
Healthy living philosophy: I believe that you should live each day like it’s your last – but also with consideration for the fact that you will live tomorrow. Take care of yourself so you can enjoy each day.
