And her approach to food and exercise are sensible, especially when it came to her preparations for The Hunger Games, which reportedly involved lots of running, and even enduring extensive training in archery from a true Olympian. “I don’t diet. I do exercise! But I don’t diet. You can’t work when you’re hungry, you know?”

Like most Hunger Games fans, I’m eagerly awaiting the release of the first movie later this month. And besides camping out at the premiere and cooking up this collection of delicious and healthy Hunger Games recipes inspired by the series, I also plan to put on my best Katniss Everdeen impression by doing some hardcore training leading up to the big release.
