Carrie Underwood spoke with People about why she works out every day and eats the right things and it’s not about staying thin.

She says, “It’s been more about health, and being strong, and setting a good example for my kids, and working out because it makes me feel good. And just kind of shifting my mindset about why I’m into health and fitness.”

A vegetarian, Underwood says of her diet, “I don’t eat meat because it’s kind of a conscious decision that I make, but anytime anybody’s like, ‘I don’t eat carbs,’ I’m like, ‘Oh, but carbs are important!’ I eat my carbs. Most of the time I eat more quinoa, rice, veggie carbs, but I eat my cake too.”
