If This Is What a Broke Girl's House Looks Like, You Can Have Our 401(k)

Beth Behrs believes in love at first sight. "I knew this was my house the moment I walked in," she tells Women's Health of her L.A. abode. The lush green landscaping and cloud-white walls were instantly calming. "Keeping things clean and basic makes me feel much less stressed," says the 30-year-old actress, who stars in Hello, My Name is Doris (out March 11). Plus, the kitchen—her favorite room, with its double oven and glass-fronted refrigerator—was the perfect place to hone her newly acquired chef skills. "I used to be a junk-food-aholic," Beth confesses.

Watch the video below for a behind-the-scenes tour of Beth's home.

Beth admits she subsisted on pizza, soda, and doughnuts until, during the second season of 2 Broke Girls, she contracted a virus that caused her skin to break out in head-to-toe red flaky patches. When her M.D. couldn't find the cause, she followed the raw-food vegan diet suggested by a naturopath. “Within two days, my skin was almost totally clear,” she says. “I realized the food I was putting into my body was causing this Game of Thrones greyscale reaction.” (To all the non-GoTers out there, it’s a fictional disease that leaves skin cracked and—you guessed it—gray.)

Beth Behrs at home.

She stuck with the hard-core regimen for a month until her complexion cleared, then downgraded to a more manageable clean-eating plan. Instead of reaching for sweets after a killer day of filming, she whips up a smoothie made from berries, spinach, and almond milk in her Vitamix. “I use it every day to make hummus, soup, and smoothies. It’s the one thing I couldn’t live without in my kitchen,” she gushes. The other: her boyfriend, actor Michael Gladis. “We entertain a lot. Many of my friends are vegan, or mostly vegetarian, like me, so we whip up a batch of butternut squash chili and gather around the table in the dining room.”

But don’t expect her upcoming memoir-slash-lifestyle guide to be all quinoa and chia seeds. “You don’t have to give up meat to be healthy and happy. It’s about moderate, slow changes—and still enjoying wine!”
