ABT Ballerina Isabella Boylston's Everyday Diet

Over at American Ballet Theatre, Ballerina Isabella Boylston keeps her energy up by eating healthily. With up to nine hours dance a day she needs calories for strength and endurance. To dance a three act ballet is like running a marathon.

So what are ballerinas made of?

This is her Grey Dog breakfast at The Grey Dog restaurant NYC.

I never expected that on the plate of a ballerina. But they say breakfast like a king. Here with scrambled eggs, French toast, fruit, and chicken sausage.

Lunch is kale, arugula, potatoes, mushroom, red cabbage, and white cheddar and apples with whole wheat bread from Sweetgreen.

That looks more like a ballerinas lunch. But then while rehearsing Isabella doesn't want anything too heavy.

And for snacks to keep her blood sugar up. Bananas, dark chocolate and peanut butter cups.

Ballet dancers eat after a show and Isabella loves pasta. Here very simply made with spinach and salmon. Served with olive oil, salt and pepper, and lemon.

All this makes a ballerina.
